This historic Wealden farmhouse has been thoughtfully updated and renovated to create an exceptional home with a unique blend of period charm and contemporary design. Walnut Tree Farm is approached over a broad drive, past a four-bay cart barn and parking for several cars.
A gallery hallway links the ground floor rooms. The spacious formal dining room with a woodburning stove forms the heart of this characterful home, whilst the principle focus of the adjacent double aspect sitting room is its impressive redbrick working fireplace. The 17th century bakehouse has been cleverly incorporated to create a practical modern kitchen with an Aga, which leads in turn to a contemporary breakfast room and through double doors to the private garden and grounds. The ground floor accommodation also incudes a stylish shower room, a large utility or second kitchen, a study and a snug.
A uniquely styled wooden staircase leads up to the first floor landing and three bedrooms, one with a walk-in dressing room, and the family bathroom. The versatile second floor has an impressive bedroom including a seating area which leads through to a further bedroom or dressing room.
The impressive grounds wrap around the Farmhouse with a large expanse of lawn, fruit trees, flower beds, vegatable garden and a gravelled pathway giving access to the barn with double doors a side gate with separate, vehicular side access. Steeped in history in 1933 the barn became the site of one of the oldest scouting units in the country. EPC-N/A
