Church Street is a small road that leads to the Market Square. With Waltham Abbey Church and its grounds adjacent to the street the property sits on, it has the area’s most iconic surroundings on its doorstep. Once inside, a small lobby gives you access to the main house along with a basement currently used for storage. From here you enter the entrance hall, a large room that could be considered an additional reception room complete with an ornate fireplace and hearth. An opening takes you into the largest reception room, currently used as a lounge diner. The    incredibly high ceilings, exposed beams and large fireplace give this characterful room a bright and airy feeling, coupled with views of the Abbey and its gardens. A door to the rear gives you access to the walled courtyard garden.

The kitchen has a range of base and wall mounted units spanning the length of the room. As with many of the rooms in the house, the feature fire place retains the character of the period.

On the way to the staircase you will find the forth bedroom along with the welcome benefit of a downstairs cloakroom. The staircase and landing are   impressive, with a high ceiling and exposed timber frames and a window that brightens up the area. From here you have access to a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom. 

The largest of the rooms measures 20ft in length and is currently used an additional reception room; with its front aspect the room enjoys those stunning views as does the second  bedroom. The third bedroom can also be considered a double room. The bathroom is a sizeable room complete with a three piece white suite and a feature fireplace.
