Full description

It's probably impossible to overstate just how centrally located this property is in Walthamstow Village. With St Mary's Church as its neighbour on one side and the Ancient House on the other, this flat is dead centre of old Walthamstow, but similarly brilliantly located for all the new things E17 has to offer. The many pubs and eateries of Orford Road are quite literally on your doorstep (check out Eat 17, The Village Kitchen or The Queens Arms for dinner), as is the rapidly changing Hoe Street, where Mirth Marvel & Maude, Eckovision and the Rose & Crown are particular favourites of ours. If all that results in a sore head the next day, wander out on Sunday morning to the peal of the church bells and stroll down to Froth & Rind or Huck's, where they will ensure your caffeine levels are topped up for the day ahead…

Living Here... - We get the impression that the owner of this flat loves music and art, so perhaps its appropriate that The Chestnuts was at one time the home of the headmaster of the Monoux Grammar School (as it then was) in Walthamstow. But enough about the past – let us tell you about the present. This property is as good a garden flat as we can remember seeing. Even before you walk through the front door you cant fail but be impressed with The Chestnuts as a whole – who wouldnt want to live in such a beautiful building? And it gets even better once you wander inside. Throughout, the flat has richly coloured stripped wood flooring, lending a real feeling of warmth. All of the rooms are flooded with light, as most enjoy double or even triple aspects. The main bedroom and lounge are particularly well proportioned, the latter enjoying direct access onto the large private rear garden (the perfect spot for relaxing or entertaining in the summer). The kitchen has space in which to eat as well (a rarity in a flat in our experience), whilst the flat is rounded off by the second bedroom and modern family bathroom. A beautiful flat in a beautiful building…

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 Nag’s 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.
