SENSATIONAL VICTORIAN HOME - CHAIN FREE: A three storey, four bedroom terraced house which has been enhanced by a fabulous, high-end renovation.
This brick-fronted home is replete with modern comforts and natural charm. The current owners have successfully accentuated the building's inherent Victorian character with an impressive restoration project which is dynamic, but never over the top.
The pretty tiled path leads to an inviting recessed porch, with a striking Victorian style door. As you enter it is immediately apparent how thoughtful and considerate the design process has been. There is a great feeling of space and light, helped by the high ceilings which are typical of Victorian buildings.
From the parquet flooring, the aluminium windows and the high quality kitchen, you can see that no expense has been spared to make this into a comfortable and luxurious property.
The front reception room with generous bay window comfortably accommodates a large sofa suite, coffee table and dining table and chairs. Set of nicely, by the feature fireplace with wood burning stove which is the rooms main focal point.
The spacious and on trend kitchen is something of a wonder. It boasts an impressive level of cupboard and worktop space and with good quality built in appliances, a keen chef would likely find themselves at home here. The side extension provides a place for the family to gather or a central hub for nights of entertaining. The room flows nicely under the exposed ceiling steels and a family could enjoy their dinners here on a full size dining table and still with space for the kids to run about.
A handy utility room and separate toilet complete the ground floor and with the light timber parquet running throughout the various spaces join together beautifully.
Large French doors lead invitingly to a low maintenance rear garden that is south facing and not over looked.
The first floor offers two comfortable double bedrooms with the larger benefitting from a walk in wardrobes. High quality carpet can be felt underfoot and the neutral wall colour adds to an already sophisticated feel. The family bathroom is outstanding and from the statement cement floor tiling this especially large bathroom is exquisite. High quality brushed brass fittings and wall hung sink unit marry nicely against the gentle grey of the herringbone wall tile. The landing offers a handy storage cupboard.
Further stairs lead to the third floor double bedroom and impressive master bedroom. The walk in double shower wet room is spot on and is a room you would want to be in, first thing in the morning. The top bedrooms are bathed in natural light from the huge windows with the master bedroom being cleverly designed to permit a number of possible layouts.
In every room the attention to detail and high-quality finish are evident. A new slate roof completes the refurbishment leaving the new owner little to do other that unpack and enjoy.
Tavistock Avenue and the Blackhorse Road area need little introduction. A new hub for creatives with more and more young professionals specifically choosing to live in this part of Walthamstow, and it is easy to see why. Some of the local places of interest are the Walthamstow Wetlands where within a short walk one of the entrances can be found. The Tottenham Marshes and the Lea Valley area are easily accessible along the cycle path with the canal close by too. Other notable places include a range of brewery's, street food market and Blackhorse Workshop where various courses can be undertaken. If an even more physical lifestyle is more your thing bouldering and yoga are both available on your doorstep too.
The Blackhorse area continues to improve and with the influx of modern apartments, new bars, new restaurants and even a new music venue on the horizon it is easy to see why the area has become a destination in itself.
