About this listing
Welcome to our large, quiet 3 bedroom house with lovely garden.
Located a 15 minute walk from Blackhorse Road tube station with fast/direct links to central London and walking distance from Walthamstow Central/Village.
The house is family friendly with a large front lounge, a bright, open kitchen area backing onto a private garden with patio for outside dining. There are two ponds with fish and frogs, and apple and pear trees with delicious fruit in autumn. It is generally an extremely homely environment and being detached and in a cul-de-sac, it is exceptionally quiet. In the same way, you can relax about listening to music as the neighbours won't be disturbed. We've checked!
Upstairs there is one master bedroom with a kingsize bed and a smaller spare room with a single bed. Downstairs there is a brand new master bedroom with ensuite bathroom being built and will be ready by March.
Downstairs in the lounge extra guests can sleep on the sofa or mattress on the floor if needed. You must be comfortable with this as the living room is open plan and will need to be made and put away each morning and night.
The upstairs bathroom is big with bath + separate shower. Downstairs is a small ensuite shower and toilet.
The kitchen has a monster six burner cooker, large fridge-freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. Heaps of storage space and a dining table to seat 4-6.
You will have access to the whole house and garden, except the office which will be locked.
Interaction with guests
We will not be in the house during your stay but will hopefully be there for the initial handover and then leave you to enjoy it as your own.
We have friends close by with spare keys if you require assistance and we will be contactable 24hrs during your stay.
We will leave concise notes on any specifics to do with the house.
Walthamstow is quickly becoming one of the cool new hotspots in London with lots of boutique coffee shops & galleries. Blackhorse Road Workshop is our particular favourite and a 3 min skip and a hop from our house. Brilliant for families, creatives, meetings, or working in the days and serves excellent coffee and sandwiches.
The house is situated on a very friendly & quiet residential street, about 15 minutes walk from quaint Walthamstow Village and The William Morris Gallery in Lloyd Park . There are plenty of parks and open space for walks close by.
15 minutes walk to Blackhorse Road tube station (Victoria Line). Walthamstow Central is around 20 minutes walk or St. James street is 20 mins with overland trains to Liverpool Street. There are also bus connections to central London and to any of the above stations from outside our house.
We tend to ride bikes everywhere. Shoreditch is around 30 minutes bike ride away and you can ride along the canals almost all the way there.
We assume everyone uses GPS for getting around but please tell us if you don't and you would like us to leave you maps etc. This can be arranged.
Other things to note
We have a great security system which we ask visitors to learn how to use and be vigilant in activating it whenever they leave the house and also at night. Keep good care of the key fob as they will cost £50 to replace if lost.
No smoking inside and no parties please.
We are new home owners and love our house. It's taken a lot of work to get it up and running so we really appreciate people respecting it as if it were there own. It would be so nice to have repeat visitors who invest their love in it too.
