What the seller says:
What do you love most about your home?
Our home feels like a complete escape from the city, quiet and peaceful with no passing traffic. The golden light that streams in from the garden in the mornings gazing out at so much nature whilst cooking big breakfasts. Watching the children climb higher and higher in the apple tree, and collecting apples to make pies and cakes. In the evening the sunset turns the walls bright pink, with views from the hilltop across Walthamstow. The house has always felt so comforting, warm and bright.
Why are you moving?
We were heartbroken to leave the house just as we were making it into our dream home, but my husband's job relocated us to the US.
What do you love about the area?
It is just a short walk to Epping Forest, so wonderful for the kids to climb trees, collect autumn leaves, explore. In winter when it snows the sledding is incredible. Wood Street is fabulous for a wander, so many independent shops, markets and cafes. Wandering to the Brewery or the Village on weekends and knowing almost everyone we saw. Such quick connections into town via the rail to Hackney or the tube to central London, as well as the proximity to Stratford with it's huge Olympic park and Westfield. The community is so welcoming, creative and fun. There's always local events, pop ups and parties to attend. Lloyd Park is just a short bus or cycle away for skateboarding, summer festivals and lounging with friends, as well as the gorgeous William Morris Gallery, endless interiors inspiration. It's also extremely quick to escape London for trips via the A406, we loved how easily we could get to the countryside without sitting in hours of traffic.
