In this neighbourhood

In the heart of Walthamstow Village. A leafy historical and family friendly area. The setting has a cobbled courtyard and is set back from the Beulah Road, tucked behind the pedestrianised row of independent shops and local amenities on Orford Road. Access to nature in St Mary’s 2 minutes away. Local children’s parks just a 5 minute walk away making daily outings very accessible and safe.

What others are saying about this home...

Cath Fairlam

Our family have known Jess for 2 years as our son's class teacher. Our son has an Autism Spectrum Condition and severe learning difficulties. In her capacity as class teacher she communicated regularly with us and was always friendly, approachable and professional. He still fondly remembers stories she read to him over zoom during lockdown. I have no doubt that whatever Jess does professionally will be a success and working with young and vulnerable children is something she excells at.
