Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Walnut Tree House is thought to date from between the wars and although it has been beautifully modernised in recent years it still retains those gorgeous features which make properties of this period so appealing. By way of example, the hall has beautiful oak flooring as well as a panelled staircase and part galleried landing. The oak flooring flows through the drawing room and the dining room as well. The doors are typical of the period and have art deco style brass levers. Improvements in recent years have included the installation of UPVC sealed unit double glazed windows giving a light and airy feel to all the rooms. On the ground floor the charming hall has a door direct through to the double garage, ideal for unloading shopping and the like. The drawing room has a corner set fireplace as well as a quality bookcase and cupboards. There is a traditional dining room and a sitting room which is accessed directly off the kitchen. All the reception rooms enjoy the southerly aspect and views over the garden. The kitchen is traditionally fitted with plenty of cupboards, drawers and worktops. The utility room doubles as a side hall and has a ventilated larder. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, three of which are provided with built in or fitted wardrobes. There is a guest bedroom with an en-suite WC and wash hand basin and a beautifully fitted bathroom and separate shower room. There is a folding ladder up to a useful loft space.

In summary this is a well appointed light and airy house.

There is a gravelled driveway with parking at the front of the house and a double garage. The front garden is attractively laid out and colourful and focused on a mature walnut tree from which of course the house takes its name. Most of the garden lies to the rear where a semi circular terrace gives on to a level sweep of lawn flanked by wide borders filled with flowering bulbs, specimen shrubs and small trees. Each border is so wide as to have a pathway running through which taken together with the bottom of the garden make a lovely perimeter walk. At the bottom of the garden is a screened kitchen garden area.

On the opposite side of the house to the garage is a screened storage area with garden workshop. In all the plot extends to approximately half an acre.
