We think (yes, estate agents do think, contrary to popular belief) that this semi-detached 1930s house has the potential to become a truly wonderful home, spacious enough for even the fastest growing brood. The location of the house is great for all the family. Ideally situated for a stroll down to Wood Street station if you need to commute into central London, the area around Wood Street itself has changed almost beyond recognition over the last few years, with lots of great places to eat and drink. Check out the burgers at The Duke (they're delicious, particularly with the sweet potato fries) or perhaps grab a pizza or two from Marilucia for a film night in with the family. If you’re feeling slightly more energetic (or overindulged on the Margherita pizza), stretch the legs with a walk or cycle in Epping Forest or around Hollow Ponds – the kids in particular will love it. If you need a treat at the end to tempt you into a walk, then take a stroll to the Ravenswood and check out the delights of God’s Own Junkyard, Mother's Ruin and The Wildcard Brewery, where there is bound to be some delicious street food to go with whatever tipple takes your fancy.
Living Here... - Foresters Drive. What a lovely name for a road, and rather apt as well, bearing in mind its proximity to Epping Forest. It isn’t just the name of the road that is lovely though – the house is too. Take a look at it from the street, and it’s immediately apparent that this is a large and imposing property for its type, and one that sits comfortably in its surroundings. Inside, the two reception rooms have been opened up to create a through lounge, which is perfect for anyone with children to keep an eye on! The lounge and the adjoining kitchen both lead out into the lean to, which itself then opens onto the garden. Here you will find a detached garage, which will surely be of interest to any budding musician (and their long suffering parents too). Upstairs the property maintains its original layout, with three bedrooms and the family bathroom. A quick peak at neighbouring houses will confirm that extending out and up isn’t an issue (subject to obtaining the usual consents and permissions of course) meaning that as the family grows, so too can the nest. Foresters Drive – yes, it really has got a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Picture the scene; you are sat in a café, melting in to the best hot chocolate you have ever had, watching Morris Dancers whack each other with sticks, whilst a man dressed as a giant ram chases after a group of kids. Wood Street is the kind of place where this sort of stuff happens all the time. As well as events and family fun days, you will also find a load of street art courtesy of Wood Street Walls. Visit Wood Street Indoor Market and roam its narrow corridors which are packed with antiques, vintage, and all sorts of curiosities. Why not visit Homies on Donkeys taqueria, browse through racks of vintage dresses at Gigi's Dressing Room or perhaps indulge in a City Spa Day at Y.Wait Beauty Salon. If you get hungry, The Duke pub is good for beer and burgers, whilst the Flower Pot is a more traditional pub and is fully equipped with pool tables and dart boards…not to mention Teras Turkish Barbecue Restaurant or The Brothers Fish Bar, which are also popular local haunts. Hollow Ponds boating lake and Epping Forest are just a short walk up Wood Street – both are excellent places to exercise, relax and unwind.
