A sumptuously presented, four bedroom semi-detached house on Church Hill Road.
This handsome family home offers over 1600 square feet of stylish and practical internal space. The attention to detail is exacting throughout, as is the quality of the materials and finishes. It’s a truly forever home. The ground floor is perfect for modern family life, being essentially one large, open plan space. The capacious, bay fronted reception room has richly toned stripped wood flooring and a fabulous corniced ceiling, and offers space to dine as well as relax. From there it’s a seamless transition into the hub of this home – the kitchen diner. And what a hub it is! Filled with light thanks to the plethora of large skylights running down one side, and the large sliding doors at the far end, this is a room that must surely be in use 24/7. It has beautiful flooring underfoot (which continues uninterrupted out to the patio), a run of sleek modern fitted units along one wall, and a large island unit which also serves as a breakfast bar. It’s an utterly fabulous space.
Upstairs the quality of presentation continues. Of the four bedrooms, three are solid doubles. To the front the main bedroom and the adjoining single have an interconnecting door, meaning the smaller room (currently configured as a home office – very handy!) could easily become a walk in wardrobe. All of the double bedrooms have plenty of space for free standing storage. The family bathroom (which compliments the ground floor WC) is utterly charming. It houses a four piece suite, including a free standing double ended bath, and a large walk in cubicle with rainfall shower over...
- Outside the garden has a Mediterranean feel, with raised beds surrounding the large patio area, and shingle covering much of the rest. Sitting here on a summer’s evening, listening to the gentle gurgle of the water feature must be an absolute delight.
Living here... - Seriously, why would you not want to live in this amazing part of E17? There’s just so much to do! Cut across Church Hill and through Poets Corner, where you can grab a pint at The Rose & Crown (and maybe take in a show at the theatre there as well). Wander further down and you come to The Bell and then beyond to Lloyd Park, home of the award winning William Morris Gallery. Alternatively, head in the other direction and check out the amazing pizzas at SoDo, before relaxing into your seat for the latest blockbuster at The Empire.
If that isn’t enough choice, then Walthamstow Village is literally the other side of St Mary’s, offering an ever-expanding array of places to eat and drink, or to just sit and watch the world go by. All this, and only a short walk from Walthamstow Central station, meaning that even the daily commute is as painless as possible. Like we said, why wouldn’t you want to live here...?
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Where in Walthamstow can you find a Greek theatre, supposed plague pit, and a collection of dead poets? Give up? Well I’ll tell you - the answer is Church Hill. OK, plague pits and dead poets make it sound a bit a grim so let me tell you more. The dead poets are road names - Milton, Aubrey and Byron. These roads, along with a few others, are often referred to as Poets Corner. This little bit of E17 has a great community vibe, and residents hold a cracking street party every year. The Greek theatre is in the grounds of Walthamstow School For Girls. Built in the 1920s, this open air theatre still hosts performances every summer. (Bit of Shakespeare anyone?) The plague pit? Well, that’s more of a local legend really. People say that Vinegar Alley, which links Church Hill to Church Lane, gets its name because locals sprinkled vinegar along the alley to stop the plague spreading from the graves beyond. This probably isn’t true, but it’s a good story to tell visitors. With easy access to the Village, Hoe Street, and the High Street (even Lloyd Park is just a short stroll away), Church Hill and its surrounding roads are a great base from which you can explore the rest of Walthamstow.
In The Owners Words... - We’ve lived here for 8 very happy years and have spent the last 4 years transforming it into a gorgeous family home. It’s 2 minutes walk to the heart of the village past the church and ancient house and 7 minutes to the underground. It’s a wonderful light filled home, the garden and patio are bathed in sun from sunrise to late afternoon and every room in the house gets direct sun each day. It’s a great space for family and friends to enjoy, whether it’s sipping something cold on the patio or snuggling up in front of the fire after forest walks. The huge loft and cool cellar provide ample storage for large families. It’s one of the friendliest roads in the borough and we will greatly miss our lovely neighbours.
