We wonder if the original owner of this house was a fan of Currer Bell? To be honest, we have no idea, but bearing in mind the house shares a name with one of her novels, we would like to think so. If it is the case, it seems rather apt - the current owners of this house are incredibly creative themselves. But before you wander inside, take a moment to take a good look at the front of the house. In particular check out the beautiful mouldings around the windows and porch – some of the most intricate we have seen and absolutely stunning. The exquisitely tiled flooring of the hall leads you into the bay fronted reception room, which feels like the perfect spot in which to relax with a good book on a cold winter’s evening. The second reception is currently configured as a workshop (we told you they were creative!), which leaves us with just the WC and the kitchen diner to complete the ground floor. Whilst the former is practical in any large family home, the latter is both useful and essential, and what’s more it’s an absolute joy to behold, with richly coloured wood flooring, modern fitted units, and direct access to the garden via French doors. Imagine sitting down with the kids to enjoy a family meal at the table, or helping them with their homework as you rustle up something for their tea. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Upstairs this home continues to impress. The master bedroom, with en suite shower room, occupies the whole width of the house, and again boasts beautiful stripped wood flooring. The two other bedrooms on the first floor are both doubles, whilst the family bathroom, with its roll top cast iron bath and walk in shower, is a delight, and a likely haven of tranquility when you need to hide from the children (which let’s face it, we all need to from time to time). The house is topped off (crowned) by the loft room, which we are sure will be an instant hit with the younger members of the family. A simply fantastic house – it’s as simple as that.
Living Here... - It seems a misnomer for this road to be called Second Avenue, because if there are any better places to live in E17, then we can’t immediately think of them. Perfectly positioned for the walk to the station, it’s also ideally located for all the delights of both the Village and Central Walthamstow. The Village…well, where do we start? There’s breakfast at Eat 17 (or lunch or dinner for that matter), mid-morning coffee (and cake!) at Froth & Rind, jaw dropping wonders at God’s Own Junkyard, mid-afternoon coffee (and more cake!) at Huck’s, artistic rumination at the Window Gallery, pre-dinner drinks at In Vino Veritas, post-dinner cocktails at The Queens [stops – pauses for breath]. And all that’s before we get to Central Walthamstow, with Hoe Street rapidly vying with the Village for the number of places to eat, drink and make merry. Second Avenue? No, should be called Best Avenue…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Get off the tube at Walthamstow Central and find the world waiting for you. Honestly, this is no exaggeration - if you want something, you’ll likely find it not too far from the station. The market, the longest in Europe, is busy and thriving. Pick up fresh fruit and veg, or visit the rotisserie stall on a Saturday for the best pork or chicken baguettes in town. Next to the market we have a shopping centre packed with high street names, and right at the top of the High Street you’ll find our new cinema and retail complex. Called The Scene, it is home to a ten screen Empire cinema, Pizza Express, and loads of other bars and restaurants. Just around the corner from this new cinema, is a very old one. The Granada opened in 1930, and after a long campaign by local residents it has recently reopened as a bar and live music venue. Now called Mirth, Marvel & Maud, this building is simply stunning. The hustle and bustle of the High Street is contrasted by the quiet residential streets that surround it. This part of Walthamstow really gives you the best of both worlds, a shopping hub, nightlife, and peace and quiet at home.
