4 Bedroom

2 Bath

A beautifully appointed, four bedroom family home, artfully extended over three storeys and brimming with luxurious, cover-ready designer features and vintage style throughout. You're sat on a quiet cul de sac, moments from Epping Forest.

Our thriving neighbourhood of Wood Street is moments away, with Wood Street overground and its direct twenty minute runs to Liverpool Street just five minutes' walk, for a door-to-door City commute of less than half an hour.


You'll be luxuriating in just under 1400 square feet of artfully appointed living space – your through lounge features gorgeous vintage parquet hardwood underfoot, a classic woodburning hearth and a second blank hearth perfect for storing firewood. Dual aspect and naturally bright, onyx fittings and cast iron radiators add a contemporary flourish. Next door your dual aspect kitchen/diner's smartly decked out in glossy cabinetry, timber worktops and metro tilework.

Step outside onto your side return (there's existing permission and potential for an extension here) and you can explore your fifty five foot rear garden. Out here you have a BBQ-perfect patio giving way to a length of lawn ending in a second, larger patio, sheltered below a timber pergola. Back inside, and upstairs your front bedroom is a large, 150 square foot double, with hardwood floors and cast iron radiators below twin sash windows.

Bedrooms two and three are also solid doubles, similarly styled, with the rearmost sleeper giving onto an immaculate wet room with rainfall shower room. Upstairs again and your penthouse suite is a gorgeous five-star space, featuring a 270 square foot bedroom, dual aspect and skylit, with gorgeous blonde hardwood floors. It leads to a substantial en suite bathroom of 120 square feet, also skylit and home to twin vessel sinks and a lovely freestanding bath. Heavenly.

Outside and as well as having Wood Street on your doorstep – with its charming covered market, perfect for vintage finds – you’re just over half a mile on foot from our sought-after enclave of Walthamstow Village. Here you'll find a fabulous range of wining and dining spots, from the cosy gastropub charms of The Castle to the bistro chic of Eat17 and the artisanal hedonism of Mother's Ruin. You're bound to find a new favourite place, no matter the mood or occasion.


- The glorious open greenery of Epping Forest is less than ten minutes’ walk away, ideal for morning jogs or evening strolls. Explore a little further for the tranquil blue waters of Hollow Ponds.
- Walthamstow Central station is twenty minutes on foot, and will get you straight to Oxford Circus just as quickly via the Victoria line.
- Local schools are excellent and plentiful, with seventeen primary/secondaries rated 'Outstanding' or 'Good' by Ofsted all less than twenty minutes away on foot.

a word from the owner...

"We have loved developing the house to what you see today, whilst growing businesses and raising our two sons here, it has been a joy to have done the work over the past 12 years. With our eldest son now in secondary school and our youngest going into school next September this is a perfect time to relocate and sell the home we have poured so much time, love, money and energy into. We will of course miss our winter nights by the fire and equally our evenings in the summer cooking outside and lounging under the pergola watching movies untill we all fall asleep in the garden. We are selling the house with planning for the kitchen extension, complete with structural drawings and steel calculations. Our builder, who has done all our work in our house over the last 12 years is ready to go for the new owner if this is wanted to be taken up. We would love to see what people do with the kitchen space, something we were dearly looking forward to doing. It's a great family home, in a wonderful location with open plan living and a dream top floor for a couple to continue to raise or start a family. When we moved here there was nothing really going on on Wood Street but now it's a vibing high street with great coffee shops, pubs, craft beer houses and much more. The schools in the area are epic, our eldest benefitted from going to Henry Maynard which is a short walk and now is at Forest which is just 5 minutes away as well. However, St Mary's which is only 50 yards away is an outstanding Church of England Primary which is really a wonderful place of learning for the younger kids. Transport links to central London are amazing via Wood Street Station and if you want to get out of town the the a406 and the a12 are both just moments away. I really think it's a special part of London that we will miss a lot."

Our Local Guide:

Chestnut Avenue North, Walthamstow — Stow Brothers

Situated on the edge of spacious Epping Forest, but every inch urban London, Walthamstow is one of those rare locations where you can have your (artisan) cake and eat it too. 

Built from proper East End roots, the rapidly expanding community has transformed the area into a buzzy, creative hub and destination in its own right, making Walthamstow’s close proximity to central London less relevant than it perhaps once was (although if you must leave, it’s only a short hop on the Victoria line or London Overground). In fact, these days you’re more likely to see daytrippers coming into the area, keen to sample its varied offerings of food, drink, culture and green space. However, lucky locals get the added benefit of being part of a genuinely cheery community – and amongst the first to know about that latest hot new opening.
