Walnut Tree Cottage is a delightful detached family home occupying a rural position within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Originally two workers cottages in the 1860s that were later joined to form one dwelling, the house has been remodelled and updated and enjoys fine views over surrounding countryside. Attractive period features include rat-trap bond brickwork, latched wooden doors, exposed beams, multi-pane casement windows and open fireplaces. Versatile annexe accommodation could be incorporated within the house or utilised as a self-contained unit. In addition to the beautiful gardens there is a lake and paddock.
