High Street Walkern is a truly unique offering, a beautiful grade II listed Edwardian period home. Walkern is a highly desirable village with ideal access to mainline train stations with excellent commuter links to London, highly regarded schools and local shops and amenities.

Situated on an elevated plot with beautiful views from the upper levels the property is entered via a gated entrance with a gravelled driveway that provides off street parking for multiple vehicles but also lead to two useful outbuildings. It is only when you approach the property from the side that you realise the substantial size of the property on offer.

Entering via the main entrance you are immediately greeted by the beautiful original tiled floor, just one of the delightful period features that this home retains that complement some of the updating that has been done throughout the years. You will also see wooden beams, sash windows, stunning feature fireplaces with wood burning stoves and strip wooden floors. High ceilings are also a common theme throughout that give you a great feeling of space and combining with the large sash windows this home feels extremely homely yet spacious.

Accommodation on the ground floor has flexibility of use and each room is well proportioned. At the front you have a large sitting room with a beautiful Inglenook fireplace and as you go the rear of the property you have a study/family room, large dining room, utility room and kitchen/breakfast room that overlooks the rear gardens, this gives you access and just steps away from the two outbuildings. Also on this floor is a sun room and very useful utility room. Two staircases lead you to the equally impressive first floor accommodation.

On the first floor you have a split level landing with strip wooden floors that give you access to five excellent sized bedrooms, a shower room with period fittings and also a large more modern family bathroom that also has an area to sit and relax. The first floor also gives you access to the second floors two loft rooms that give you flexibility of use such as bedrooms, storage or office space. The choice is yours.

Going outside you have two outbuildings both with more space that give you flexibility of use and with potential to make more of if you wish. One barn is currently used as large garage and storage that has vaulted ceiling space and the other is used as a pottery workshop and further storage but was originally a stable. The rear garden that directly joins the rear of the property and is extremely private and generous in size is currently lawned with hedging and mature fruit trees.

To view this delightful home that offers so much and is rare to find on the market today please call selling agents Fine & Country and we would be delighted to organise you a private viewing.
