Originally dating from the 1930s era this INDIVIDUAL DETACHED RESIDENCE has been thoughtfully extended to include 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms together with a detached Studio Home Office within a highly respected location.
Set within an enclosed corner sited garden plot, fronting sought after “tree-lined” Falmouth Avenue this attractive looking family house offers wonderful living accommodation and the advantage of its own separate Home Office Studio with facilities!
Falmouth Avenue is one of Highams Park’s established locations just a short walk from some delightful forest walks and Highams Park Lake. Village facilities close by include a wide range of shops, a large Tesco store, popular restaurants and cafes, together with a mainline station connecting with London Liverpool St., Walthamstow Central and the Victoria line. Sought after schooling for all ages is also within close distance.
The house itself probably dates back to the mid 1930s period, and has in recent years been carefully extended to provide a very spacious arrangement of living accommodation, which includes a large reception hall, cloakroom wc, bay fronted sitting room, study, superb open plan living dining room opening up to a fitted kitchen, separate utility room, all on the ground floor, whilst the first floor features 4 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms! This property benefits from a deep frontage providing off street parking facilities and with pedestrian access on both sides, leads to a neat rear garden. Here there is also access to a marvellous home office studio, which provides independent working space from the main house.
