An effortlessly stylish and double fronted end of terrace house on Connaught Road.
This fantastically well-presented three bedroom home offers some 1100 square feet of internal space, set across three floors. It has been completely renovated and modernized throughout by the current owners, resulting in a house that is as comfortable and practical as it is elegant.
The ground floor comprises two reception rooms, kitchen and WC. The two reception rooms sit at the front of the house, either side of the central entrance hall. To the right is the lounge. It is dual aspect, with crittall style double doors leading out into the rear garden, feature fireplace, and richly toned stripped wood flooring underfoot. On the other side of the hallway is the dining room. Again, there is stripped wood flooring here, and plenty of room to accommodate friends and family around the table. The room flows seamlessly into the kitchen beyond. This is kitted out with fantastic fitted units (including a breakfast bar), wooden work surfaces and flagstone flooring. Like the lounge, it offers access to the garden.
Upstairs the bedrooms (all of them doubles) are spread across the two upper floors. On the first there are two, one with fitted wardrobes and the other with space for free standing ones, and both with stripped wood flooring. There is also a fabulous family bathroom on this floor, which is fully tiled and features a four piece suite including free standing roll top bath and separate walk in shower cubicle...
- Ascend to the second floor and you’ll find the last of the double bedrooms, this one in the loft extension. The owners have also very cleverly carved out a study area on this floor – very handy when so many of us are working from home at present.
Outside there is a courtyard style garden to the rear. It has low maintenance artificial lawn, and is the perfect spot to retire to on a warm summer’s evening.
Living here... - When you’re perched just the other side of Hoe Street from Orford Road, as this property is, you are guaranteed to have literally everything that the Village in particular (and E17 in general) has to offer. Whether it's a cold beer after a long day, dinner of a Saturday evening or a Sunday morning brunch (far too many options to fit in here!) or simply relaxing with a latte and watching the world go by, there is plenty to choose from. And that's even before we mention the the sights and sounds of the market and Hoe Street, and the green open spaces of Epping Forest.
Walthamstow Central Station is literally a hop, skip and a jump away and offers great transport links into Central London via the Victoria Line and London Overground.
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Get off the tube at Walthamstow Central and find the world waiting for you. Honestly, this is no exaggeration - if you want something, you’ll likely find it not too far from the station. The market, the longest in Europe, is busy and thriving, and the perfect spot to pick up fresh fruit and veg. Next to the market we have a shopping centre packed with high street names, and right at the top of the High Street you’ll find the cinema and retail complex. Called The Scene, it is home to a ten screen Empire cinema, Pizza Express, and loads of other bars and restaurants. Just around the corner from this new cinema, is a very old one. The hustle and bustle of the High Street is contrasted by the quiet residential streets that surround it. This part of Walthamstow really gives you the best of both worlds, a shopping hub, nightlife, and peace and quiet at home.
In The Owners Words... - We have been here for 9 years and have loved living in what is literally a part of Walthamstow's history (Britain's first car with an internal combustion engine was built on the site of this house - and can be seen just round the corner in the local Vestry House Museum). And it's not just the house itself we've enjoyed so much, it's the location as well. It's perfectly placed - the Tube and the Village are only several minutes walk away, and the high street and St James Street are not much further away than that (plus the overground at Queens Road station is just a couple of minutes walk away if you ever fancy a quick trip to Hampstead Heath).
