The House

This is a 10-bedroom former children's home, a detached house on a reasonably large corner plot. Inside, there are a number of good-sized bedrooms, plenty of communal space downstairs, and other facilities. The house bears the scars of its former institutional use, but is very flexible: it's on a corner plot with good sized gardens at the front, back and sides.

The house is within walking distance of Walthamstow Central station, which is the northern terminus of the Victoria Line (zone 3). Kings Cross is just under 20 minutes away, and it's 25 minutes to Oxford Circus. Overground trains run to Liverpool Street - also a 20 minute journey - and call at Hackney Downs. Alternatively, to avoid the walk, buses from the main road at the end of the street go to Blackhorse Road station which is also on the Victoria Line, and has an overground service to Haringey Green Lanes and Upper Holloway.
