A fantastically spacious two bedroom Village home, situated in a beautiful Grade II listed building on Bishops Close.
This capacious 950 square foot flat stretches across two floors and a cellar, as well as having a generous private rear garden. It has the potential to be turned into a truly impressive forever home.
The ground floor comprises reception room, kitchen and bathroom. The reception room is dual aspect, with two large bays allowing the light to flood in, and also has a feature fireplace. It offers plenty of space to both relax and entertain. Directly off sits the kitchen. It has uninterrupted views of the garden and is kitted out with fitted units. This floor is rounded off by the two piece bathroom.
From the hallway you can then either ascend or descend. The cellar is ideal for storing the odd bottle of wine (or ten!), whilst if you climb the impressive stairs to the first floor you’ll find two bedrooms and a WC. Of the bedrooms one is an impressive double, the other a single.
Outside, the private garden has the potential to be turned into a beautiful oasis of calm – ideal for relaxing over the summer months – whilst to the front there is one free, off-street parking space.
Living here... - We would imagine that it's probably pretty rare to have one Grade II listed structure as a close neighbour, but around Bishops Close there were no less than 16 at the last count! Now that's history brought to life in our view. But don't be deceived into thinking this wonderful part of East London is some sort of sepia tinged open air museum. Far from it. It's a colourful, vibrant and exciting place to live, with wonderful residents and businesses ensconced there. Take a wander up Church Lane and turn left at the Ancient House and you are on Orford Road, the beating heart of the Village. Here you will find everything and everyone on any given weekend, from Chris and the team at Eat 17 restaurant, through to Sam and Jo down at the bakery, and lots more in between. It could seriously take you half an hour to walk a few yards along Orford Road, as you are bound to bump into someone you know as you stroll along. It really is that kind of place – warm, welcoming, and friendly.
It’s also ideally located for when you need to get further afield, with Walthamstow Central station just a few minutes stroll along the Lane, passing by the alms houses and continuing down St Mary’s Road.
In The Owners Words... - "I have lived here for nearly 20 years, and really like the area and the flat, but need to move to get more bedrooms. It has been particularly nice to have good neighbours in the building, but my own front door and garden for privacy, in such a quiet cul-de-sac. I will miss the large lounge which you can furnish and use in so many different ways because of its size. I hope whoever moves in will really cherish this special place."
