A neatly presented two bedroom garden flat on St Andrews Road.
This property offers well proportioned rooms throughout, making it an incredibly comfortable and practical home to live in. To the front sits the reception – a well lit room thanks to the two windows, and with plenty of very useful built in shelving. Directly behind it, off the central hallway, is the first of the two double bedrooms. Neutrally decorated like the rest of the flat, it has room for free standing storage and offers views towards the private rear garden.
The kitchen occupies the mid-point. It has fitted units ranged along two walls, and offers space to eat as well as cook. It also has access to the garden.
The final two internal spaces are the bathroom and second bedroom. The former is fully tiled and has a three piece suite, whilst the latter provides uninterrupted views of the garden.
The garden itself is low maintenance, being completely paved, with raised beds along the borders and a large storage building in the far corner.
Living here... - This part of Walthamstow has long been known for industry. In 1932 St Andrews Mills Ltd opened at 34 St Andrews Road. A decade later they created Androll, which they would later rename Andrex, and the rest, as they say, is history. The factory has long since closed, replaced by houses and flats, but the area continues to attract new start-up businesses, particularly in the creative sector, adding to the feeling that this is fast becoming one of the artistic centres of E17. Take, for instance, Blackhorse Workshop – it currently supports dozens of designers, carpenters, architects, furniture makers, lighting designers, sculptors (the list goes on!), as well as providing space for the public to undertake their own projects, or sign up for one of their many courses in woodwork, metalwork etc. If however you aren’t as creative as some, then there’s still plenty to do around this area, whether it be a stroll around Higham Hill Park (visiting the Hub whilst your about it), Sunday lunch at the Warrant Officer, or perhaps a long walk across the reservoirs. It’s also home to two of Walthamstow’s finest craft breweries, Wild Card and Signature Brew, both of whom have taprooms just the other side of Blackhorse Lane.
So whether you’re creative or just fancy a decent pint, you will never be short of something to do…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Blackhorse Road station sits at the junction of Blackhorse Road and Blackhorse Lane. The name is actually a mispronunciation of Black House, a grand old house that once stood near St James Street. Blackhorse Lane has some exciting stuff going on, not least of which is the Blackhorse Workshop. This is a community making space where you can attend woodwork, metalwork and leather work classes. They also host a variety of special events. It is also home to the incredible Wood Street Coffee, who have one of the best brunch menus going. A bit closer to the station is Gnome House, a community centre that is also home to Inky Cuttlefish screen printers. Yasar’s Place is good for kebabs, and Forest Wines just around the corner is a great spot to pick up craft ale and good quality wine. From Blackhorse Lane you can also access the glorious Lea Valley Marshes, which in turn lead to the Walthamstow Wetlands, 211 hectares of open space and reservoirs – the largest urban wetlands nature reserve in Europe. Get lost in the excitement, or lose yourself on the wetlands, the choice is yours.
In The Owners Words... - “This flat was very special as it was the first property I owned, I put a lot of work and love into making it cosy and comfortable. I was always struck by how quickly you could be in either Central London or the surrounding countryside. As I run my own business, the outdoor storage and large kitchen was a game changer. Having your own garden in London is a real luxury and the outdoor space saw plenty of summertime barbeques and was the perfect sanctuary for me. I have fond memories of Canalside walks, Sunday roasts in Walthamstow village and finding excuses to nip up the road to Ikea. Having a local honey seller and a fantastic coffee shop just a minute away all adds to the charm. This was a wonderful flat and the local community had all the amenities you could need. It'll be sorely missed.”
