    About this property

    • Ye Walnut Tree is a charming Grade II listed cottage believed to date from the mid 17th century with later additions, situated in this popular village. The well-presented and versatile accommodation is arranged over three floors and combines character features with modern embellishments, ideal for both family living and formal entertaining. Salient points include a country-style kitchen, exposed wall and ceiling timbers, an impressive inglenook fireplace, some exposed original floorboards, wooden doors with thumb latch fittings and multi pane casement windows with attractive wrought iron window furniture. Also of note is the impressive, detached barn with implemented planning permission to convert to ancillary accommodation, together with the extensive gardens and grounds, and ample off road parking.

      The main reception rooms comprise a generous sitting room with a charming exposed brick inglenook fireplace and a dining room with an outlook and door to the rear. The study/snug adjoins the sitting room, with a wall of built-in shelving and an attractive view to the front.

      The double aspect, country-style kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units with space for appliances, a Range cooker and a butler sink with a delightful view to the rear.

      A cloakroom and coats cupboard complete the ground floor.

      Arranged over the first floor are three double bedrooms, one with a double aspect and a bank of built-in storage cupboards.

      A well-appointed family bathroom completes the first floor.

      Arranged over the second floor are two interconnecting double bedrooms, one of which has been utilised as a dressing room, with built-in storage and a walk-in cupboard with potential to create an en suite, subject to the necessary planning consents.

      Ye Walnut Tree is approached beyond a five-bar wooden gate with a driveway flanked with lawn to either side and culminating at the house and barn, providing an attractive entrance to the property and ample off road parking.

      The extensive west facing gardens to the rear of the property have been impressively established and maintained, with landscaped lawns interspersed with a variety of majestic trees including apple, oak, walnut, birch, cob and chestnut, the majority of which have been under-planted with spring bulbs. There is a beech hedge-lined walkway leading to an enclosed area with an attractive pond adorned with aquatic planting. There are two timber framed garden implement stores, both with power connected and one providing a well-equipped workshop. The gardens amount to about 1 acre in total.

      The detached oak framed barn is a real feature with implemented planning (ref: 10/00630/FL) ‘Conversion of former barn to create a single bedroom residential annex to “Ye Walnut Tree.” The barn was converted in 2015 and is fully insulated, offering a versatile space with an impressive vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, providing the incoming purchaser the opportunity to complete the ancillary accommodation to their preference.
