Property Summary**Guide price £600,000 - £650,000**
A recently refurbished and extended property with its own workshop and gardens and now offering an extensive kitchen/diner, two house bathrooms and a master bedroom with wet room.
Within easy reach of amenities in Walthamstow, the house is less than a kilometre from the Zone 3 Blackhorse tube station and not far from good schools.
On a street comprising mostly semi-detached and terraced homes set back from the road, the property is located a short walk from the A503 Forest Road connecting Walthamstow and Tottenham. Services from bus stops under 200m from the property run to Wood Green, Hackney and Ilford while the Zone 3 Blackhorse Underground Station and overland train station are approximately 800m away, offering connections to stations on the Victoria Line as well as trains to Gospel Oak and Barking.
Other local amenities within easy reach include a choice of supermarkets, including a Tesco and a Co-op, an off-licence, a newsagents, a laundrette, two petrol stations, two pharmacies, a medical centre and dental surgery, a hairdressers, a number of cafes and the dog-friendly Lord Palmerston pub, which serves lunchtime and evening meals and boasts a beer garden, disabled access, a smoking area and big screen TVs.
Greenleaf Primary School is under 350m from the property and was rated as outstanding school by Ofsted in 2007. Hillyfield Primary Academy is under 450m from the property and was rated as an outstanding school by Ofsted in 2014.
Set a little back from the road, the white-painted house is separated from the pavement by a low, brick-built wall with access to the front garden by a latched timber gate. With a high hedge to one side offering screening for neighbouring homes, a flagstone courtyard leads to the covered front door with a separate timber gate also allowing access to the rear of the property.
Here, a newly-laid flagstone patio and path divide a garden awaiting green-fingered new owners - a blank canvass cleared and ready for planting either with a lawn or shrubs and trees. Other features include a stout, lockable steel outhouse which could easily be used as a workshop or hobby room, a storage locker and access to the propertys detached single garage.
The front door opens onto a reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor to the left, with under-stairs storage beneath. Internal doors to the right lead to the lounge and open-plan, extended kitchen/diner while another ahead opens onto the fully-tiled ground-floor bathroom, equipped with panel bath with a shower above, a wall-mounted hand basin, a WC as well as a matching chrome towel shelf and rail.
However, perhaps the propertys most eye-catching feature is the extensive dining room-kitchen, more than big enough for a three-piece suite as well as a dining table and chairs adjacent to the generously-proportioned preparation and cooking area, equipped with an oven and gas hob beneath an extractor; space and plumbing for a washer-drier; room for a free-standing upright fridge/freezer and central kitchen island; and a granite sink with a drainer beneath a separate window overlooking the rear garden. Base and wall units in white offer ample storage while ceiling-mounted, recessed, LED spotlights supplement the light from the three-quarter-length patio doors opening onto the rear garden.
The stairs to the first floor lead to two double and one single bedroom - all fitted with stripped-wood floors and wall mounted radiators as well as the second house bathroom, which has been refurbished as a wet room and includes a shower with glass splash screen, pedestal sink with chrome mixer tap beneath a wall-mounted mirror, overhead LED spotlights, WC with dual flush and wall-mounted, heated towel rail.
The stairs continue from the landing up to the second-floor master bedroom, equipped with roof windows, a wall-mounted radiator, substantial under-eaves storage and its own en-suite wet room, also equipped with a shower, WC with dual flush and pedestal hand basin with a chrome mixer tap.
With some loft insulation and double glazing, the property includes a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with separate thermostat and individual controls on all radiators, helping to ensure an E rating on its EPC.
