Believed to date in parts from the mid-14th century and converted from two original cottages, Walnut Tree is a handsome timber-framed property offering over 2,800 sq ft of light-filled flexible accommodation arranged in an L-shaped configuration over two floors. It retains many period features including exposed wall and ceiling beams and original fireplaces.
The spectacular drawing room with inglenook fireplace has dramatic views, as does the spacious sitting room. The dining room has some lovely timbers, a polished wood floor, heavy wooden doors and staircase to the first floor. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large kitchen/breakfast room recently refitted with a range of contemporary wall and floor units, an Aga and modern integrated appliances. The kitchen also features a walk-in pantry, space for a table for more informal dining, French doors to the garden and a boot room with access to the rear drive.
On the first floor the property offers a large triple aspect principal bedroom with built-in storage, a fitted dressing area and an en suite bathroom with freestanding bath. There are five further well-proportioned bedrooms, all with fitted storage and one with a feature exposed brick chimney breast and fireplace, together with a generous family bathroom with separate walk-in shower.
This property has 4.1 acres of land.
Walnut Tree is approached through a five-bar gate over a tarmacadam driveway giving access to the two attached garages.
The sizeable garden surrounds the property on all sides and is laid mainly to level lawn with a wealth of mature shrubs and trees. There is also an all-weather tennis court and a gate to a neighbouring paddock, the whole enjoying far-reaching views over surrounding countryside
