Situated on a quiet residential street in Walthamstow Village is this wonderful double-fronted Victorian apartment, arranged over two levels and with car port and private garden. Internal accommodation extends to approximately 1,300 sq ft and has been beautifully renovated to an imaginative design by Widger Architecture and the current owners.
The property has an independent entrance accessed via the private parking area, through which a staircase ascends to the split-level first floor. At the front of the building is an incredibly bright, open living/dining room with wood burner and dark engineered-oak flooring. The same flooring is used in the kitchen and study, which has a concealed utility area and stepped access to the private paved garden. Also on this level is a family bathroom and double bedroom with en-suite shower room.
Occupying the second-floor dormer extension are two large bedrooms with underfloor heating and built in storage, one with an integrated desk space. The upper level is clad entirely in Birch-faced plywood with exposed end-grains on banisters, architraves, door and window frames. The consistency of the material achieves a satisfying serenity and is contrasted with matte black fixtures and an external cladding of burnt Siberian larch, visible through window recesses. Shadow gaps above the bespoke narrow-plank oak flooring present the walls with a sense of weightlessness, and windows at both aspects cast shadows that mimic the structural contours and angular window frames.
Maynard Road is located close to the centre of the sought-after Walthamstow Village, one of east London’s most desirable areas.
