An attractive Grade II listed detached stone and Collyweston house (1765) with gated driveway and parking, with a substantial stone outbuilding providing garaging
An attractive Listed period property, Walnut Tree Cottage originally formed a pair of separate dwellings. The combined house offers elegantly presented and well-proportioned accommodation over three floors that manages to combine a modern layout and flow with an abundance of period features and charm.
The headline accommodation comprises three formal reception rooms, a modern dining kitchen and four first floor bedrooms which are served by three bath or shower rooms. Two of the bedrooms are particularly generous, with well-appointed en suite bath and wet rooms. What was presumably originally a fifth bedroom and now a dressing room has a staircase that rises to a fifth attic landing room and bedroom, which offers a buyer an obvious opportunity to create a fabulous three room principal suite.
The garden lies to the rear of the house and is largely laid to lawn and fringed by mixed species trees including the walnut tree from which the house takes its name, yew, eucalyptus, evergreen and cherry species trees, which ensure a high degree of privacy within the garden. The gravelled driveway with electric gates, leads to a turning sweep in front of a large
stone outbuilding, which currently provides garaging for several cars and basic storage, to which a terrace area adjoins, orientated for the late afternoon sun.

I have sold this property before in my career and have always been taken by it. I love its attractive appearance, the versatility that the barn offers and the privacy of the garden, coupled with the village setting within the city. I find it a compelling home.James AbbottProperty agent
