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. Emergency repairs to the roofs and rainwater goods have addressed the worst of deterioration and water ingress, but extensive vegetation to the rear continues to threaten further damage. The Local Authority continues to develop plans for the repair and re-use of the building, and is in discussion with Historic England.
