About this property

  • Walnut Tree Cottage is a charming detached Grade II listed Tudor property with a wealth of character. Understood to date from the 16th Century, the cottage offers light, flexible and well proportioned living accommodation arranged over two floors, together with a cellar. This historic family house is coming to the open market for the first time since the early 1920s, offering the purchaser scope to update and refurbish (subject to the necessary consents). The property sits in about 1.2 acres of wonderful gardens and grounds enjoying a rural outlook, and benefits from garaging and ample off-street parking.

    Character features include exposed beams, fireplaces, multi-paned casement windows, painted brickwork, wooden panelled doors and wooden floors.

    The spacious entrance hall enjoys a sightline and access to the rear garden terrace. A staircase rises and turns to the first floor. There is also an adjoining cloakroom and hatch to the cellar.

    The two reception rooms comprise a formal dining room with a striking inglenook fireplace and triple aspect sitting room, which also has a fireplace.

    The generously proportioned kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of wall and base cupboards. Work surfaces incorporate a 1½ bowl sink. Space for cooker, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher. There is also access to the rear garden.

    The master bedroom is arranged over the first floor with an outlook to both the front and rear garden. There is an accompanying modern en suite bathroom with an adjoining dressing room/study, which provides access to one of the bedrooms with an adjoining store room.

    There are two further bedrooms with a modern ‘Jack and Jill' bathroom, completing the accommodation.

    The property is approached via a pedestrian pathway leading to the front portico entrance, flanked to both sides via an area of lawn and herbaceous borders.

    There is a driveway to the side of the property providing ample parking, which leads to two separate garages, one of which has two attached store rooms.

    The well established rear garden acts as a wonderful backdrop to the property, and backs onto farmland and enjoys rural views. It comprises a split level paved terrace, ideal for al fresco entertaining, which is bordered with planted beds and a blossom tree.
