Chestnuts House, 398, Hoe Street E17 - Waltham Forest

Substantial detached house of circa 1745-7 in stock red brick with red dressings. Elaborate stucco interiors survive along with original panelling and cornices. The house fell out of use several years ago and has since been occupied by live-in guardians. However, the condition of the roof and rainwater goods is deteriorating, with consequences for the walls and plasterwork, and extensive vegetation to the rear threatens further damage. The Local Authority is developing plans for the repair and re-use of the building, including urgent works, and is in discussion with Historic England.
