A generously proportioned four bedroom, end of terrace Victorian house on Merton Road.
This sizeable home offers plenty of space for the whole family. Set across two floors, as well as a cellar and uber-useful garden office, this home really does feel future proofed as your family grows. The ground floor comprises two reception rooms, kitchen and conservatory. The first reception at the front has a bay window which allows plenty of natural light in, as well as high ceilings, beautiful flooring and a feature fireplace. Behind it sits the second reception, which is used as a second lounge but would also make an ideal dining room. It again has a fireplace, high ceiling and fantastic flooring. The kitchen is galley in style, with modern fitted units ranging along two walls. It in turn leads to the conservatory at the very rear, which offers uninterrupted views of the garden.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms and the family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms are doubles, with one having swathes of fitted wardrobes. All are well presented. The family bathroom is fully tiled and has a three piece suite.
Outside, the garden is accessed from the conservatory. It has a garden office at the far end – ideal with so many of us working from home.
Living here... - Thanks to the position of this house, on the border of Walthamstow with Leyton, you’ll never be short of things to do. Head out with the junior members of the family (not forgetting the canine ones as well) and nip over to Hollow Ponds and Epping Forest, where you can cycle, run and boat from dusk ‘til dawn. (Wingfield Park is just up the road too, just in case the cycling didn’t quite wear them out). All the restaurants and cafes on Orford Road are child friendly, so there is never a shortage of places to eat with the family, whilst The Empire down on Hoe Street is the perfect place to while away a few hours watching the latest animated blockbuster.
As and when a trip to the office is required, the proximity of Walthamstow Central station for Tube and Overground is a massive bonus, whilst Lea Bridge Road has plenty of bus routes heading to Hackney and then beyond to the City.
Like we said, tons of stuff for the kids (and you!) to see and do, all within easy reach – now what could be better than that?
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Despite what people may tell you, Walthamstow Village was not invented by estate agents. It’s called Walthamstow Village because it was once exactly that, a village. Once the administrative heart of Walthamstow, the Village is now content to simply be the neon capital of Europe. An unlikely claim you might think, but visit God’s Own Junkyard on Ravenswood industrial estate and you’ll see what I mean.
When your mind has been blown by the neon, pop in to Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace and Wildcard Brewery. All three businesses are based on Ravenswood, making it the most exciting industrial estate on the planet. The Village is full of quiet residential streets that all have easy access to bucket loads of pubs and restaurants. Take in the jazz at The Nags Head on Sunday afternoon, enjoy the excellent food and beer at The Queens Arms, and sample the legendary chicken and bacon jam burger at Eat17.
To walk off all the food you’ve eaten, wander to the 15th century Ancient House, check out St Mary’s Church and its ivy clad church yard, have a pint in the garden at The Castle Pub, then admire the art in the windows of the old iron mongers.
In The Owners Words... - We have enjoyed owning this amazing house for the last 20 years. Watching the kids grow up on this lovely street has been a joy, everyone is so friendly and there is a wonderful and safe community here on this quiet one-way road. Everybody had space to grow and develop and all my children attended Henry Maynard Primary Schools which are within the catchment area of this house.
We love the quiet and peaceful garden and additional small courtyard which is perfect for entertaining and gives a sense of being on holiday rather than a stone’s throw away from the bustling Walthamstow Village.
It has been a privilege to live in this wonderful house and we have all enjoyed it to the full.
