Guide Price: £350,000-£375,000. A beautifully presented, bijou one bedroom flat on Orford Road.
Located on the first floor of a Victorian building in the very heart of Walthamstow Village, this stylish property is the ultimate first time purchase. Wander through the front door and into the hallway, and immediately to your right is the double bedroom. At the other end of the hallway is the reception room, which offers plenty of space to dine as well as relax. In between are situated the kitchen and bathroom. The former is kitted out with smart fitted units and tiled flooring, whilst the latter has a three piece suite featuring wash hand basin, bath and walk in cubicle with rainfall shower over. There is a separate WC, located opposite the bedroom.
Living here... - It's pretty hard to imagine a location more “central Village” than this flat perched on Orford Road. Everything you need is, quite literally, on your doorstep. Need a pint of milk? Then wander down to the award winning Spar (bet you end up coming out with more than a pint though!) Fancy meeting up with mates for something to eat? Try Eat 17, or the Orford Saloon, or one of the many other restaurants and gastro pubs. Forgoing food and just meeting for a drink? Take your pick – there’s The Queens, The Castle, Wildcard, Mother’s Ruin…OK, so you get the picture. And when it’s time for the commute to work, well fortunately that’s made just that bit more palatable by the proximity of Walthamstow Central Station, meaning you can hit the snooze button on the alarm just one more time…
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.
