Walthamstow remains a Hotspot for those moving from Zone 2 postcodes, that have become unobtainable in the last few years for many first time buyers and tenants. Walthamstow (#awesomestow) offers a lot for those moving to the area, on top of affordability and traditional Victorian Terraces and Ex Warner style flats.
An easy commute into Central London, a vibrant nightlife and many schools rated as Excellent/outstanding mean that the area remains popular with both young professionals looking to take their first step onto the busy East London property ladder and families looking for their ‘forever home’. With a one bedroom flat typically starting from around £350,000 and one bedroom flats to rent starting at around £1250 per month.
The area is a hotspot for independently owned shops, bars and restaurants, this being most noticeable around The Village area (where you’ll find Eat17 – famous for their Bacon Jam). There is also plenty to keep residents entertained at the weekend, from The William Morris gallery and the food market situated in Lloyd Park to the Vestry House museum that is situated in Walthamstow Village.
2019 has been an exciting year with Waltham Forest being the first ever London Borough of Culture. The award from the Mayor of London will ensure arts and culture is placed at the heart of our communities. The year will explore the theme Radicals, Makers and Fellowship in a collaboration between local residents, artists and creatives producing a once in a lifetime celebration of the place we call home.
