Built in the early 19th Century and Grade II listed, Walton House exudes period charm with its classical façade of handsome painted stucco and portico entrance. The current owners have undertaken a 'nut and bolt' restoration and have created a blend of Georgian grandeur and sophistication, tastefully infused with the warmth and style of a modern family home.
Standing within the sought-after residential area of The Park, with its verdant tree lined roads and green open space, the property has a wealth of character features such as a stone staircase, polished stone floors, exposed floorboards, decorative plasterwork, sash windows and panelled doors. Arranged over four floors the entire house has an abundance of natural light thanks to the sizeable working sash windows and the light, yet calming, tones of the carefully selected décor.
Walton House is approached via wrought iron gates and railings, set between octagonal piers. The pathway leads, via the off-road parking and front garden, to stone steps and the portico entrance.
The entrance vestibule, ideal for raincoats and muddy boots, leads into a grand reception hall with original polished stone flooring and stone staircase, with wrought iron balustrades and wooden handrail, to the first and lower ground floors. The light and spacious ground floor accommodation flows effortlessly with the drawing room leading onto the family dining room, each with a marble fireplace, and a wonderful sun room with access to the rear garden via a wrought iron staircase. Finally, there is a beautiful family kitchen, with an island and range cooker, which promises to be the hub of the home and a place to entertain family and friends. The cloakroom, together with a good sized butler's pantry and rear steps down to the garden complete the ground floor accommodation.
To the first floor is an impressive master bedroom, flooded with natural light, which has a door to the main bathroom enabling it to be used as an en-suite, if desired. The bathroom benefits from a free standing, claw foot bath with separate shower and under floor heating. There are two further large double bedrooms, a second bathroom with under floor heating and a useful utility room with laundry cupboard.
The second floor is accessed via a doorway to a staircase which leads to a large double bedroom with fitted storage and a smart en-suite shower room.
The versatile accommodation to the lower ground floor has been arranged by the current owners as a separate apartment although it could be re-integrated into the main house as the connecting stairs and door are still in situ. With a living/dining room, kitchen, shower room, master bedroom with en-suite shower room and second double bedroom the space would also be ideal for an elderly relative, nanny, teenage children or to provide additional income, subject to the relevant consents.
Externally the property benefits from off-road parking to the front elevation with a smart garden and separate entrance to the lower ground floor, while to the rear is an immaculate, landscaped, walled garden with a lawn, raised borders with specimen plants and fruit trees, a patio seating area and gated pedestrian access.
