Walton occupies a commanding position in one of the most beautiful areas of Essex. Overlooking Epping Forest in the open and undulating countryside.

Overlooking its own manicured gardens and further grounds with the privacy provided by a perimeter wall. The Gardens have a lovely view of the Church next door. The property has been beautifully and respectfully modernised throughout.
The land and original house were given by Queen Victoria to General Arnold Richard Marter of the Hassars for the services to Britain. Subsequently promoted and becoming an Equerry to the Queen. Major General Marter demolished the original rectory and built the present house in 1903. Being a cavalry man he paid particular attention to the standard of the stables and the other facilities which largely remain in their original form. Members of the Marter family continued to live in the house until 1964.
Adjoining the property on the western side is a double garage. To the north west side of the forecourt there is a brick built stable block under a peg tiled roof which includes four traditional loose boxes, paneled tack room, triple garage with loft over part and a garden shed to the one end.
Walton is set in beautiful gardens and grounds. The front door looks out onto a walled garden with herbatious borders and fruit trees. Continuing around the house the ornate shrubs and further borders lead to the front entrance with stone balustrading. From the rear terrace a set of steps lead down to the lawn and moated brick lily pond. From this point the formal grounds, which lead down to the two paddocks, with views through a pretty wrought iron gate frame these paddocks perfectly and give further views over the surrounding countryside.
