Walthamstow has become one of the most quirky and popular areas in London over the past few years. Before that the Village was traditionally the only area in demand; properties outside of it weren’t as well sought-after. This all changed thanks to restoration and regeneration work plus the performance of local schools. These factors added up to a younger crowd and attracted more businesses too. Now this is one of the best locations in Waltham Forest.
The property scene in the area is quite interesting. There are the typical Victorian and Edwardian properties, each offering space and their own gardens. Newer houses are set to arrive in the near future. Before Christmas permission was granted for 500 homes to be created.
The purpose-built Victorian flats in the area are among the most highly regarded. They were designed by Thomas Courtenay Warner. He built the properties on the land himself in the 19th and 20th centuries rather than selling it off.
The properties are unique because they are split into two flats, each with its own front door and garden. The quality of the design has been highly regarded for many years. In particular people appreciate the bold coloured bricks, gables and tiled roofs. Some of the homes have recessed porches and bay windows.
There are Warner style homes across Waltham Forest. The largest concentration is located near Lloyd Park though. This is a wonderful area with plenty of facilities available in the park including a play area, cafe, sports courts, formal gardens, and a designated area where dogs can be let off leads. The park was extensively redeveloped in 2012.
If you are considering property investment Waltham Forest will have likely appeared on your list. Walthamstow is one of the best areas in the Borough and has plenty of great things to offer. It is definitely worth considering, especially if you want properties like the Warner homes that have always been praised for their quality.
