EPC For Bledington, Chipping Norton, Gloucestershire


Walnut House is a wonderful family home in a splendid position on the edge of Bledington towards the end of a no through lane. It benefits from spectacular views over the unspoilt countryside and enjoys a quiet location. The property was constructed approximately 16 years ago using Cotswold stone under a Welsh slate roof with distinctive red brick chimney stacks. The windows are timber casements and the appearance is traditional of many Cotswold stone houses.

The current owner purchased the property 14 years ago and during this period he has provided great care not only in maintaining the property but has also extended it to include a garden room, veranda and a greenhouse. The bathrooms have been refitted with Matki shower units and a new bespoke kitchen has been installed. In addition limestone flooring has been fitted throughout the ground floor and oak flooring to the first floor (excluding the bathrooms). Internally the property is well presented and has an excellent arrangement of rooms well suited to family living. The property has a surprisingly large rear garden and orchard that adjoins open pasture, part of the Evenlode Vale. From both the house and gardens, there are pleasing rural aspects with a high degree of privacy.

The arrangements and measurements of the rooms can be seen on the accompanying floorplans, but in brief comprise a welcoming entrance hall with oak faced staircase to first floor accommodation. There is a substantial drawing room with a stone cut Tudor arch fireplace housing a wood burning stove. A pair of glazed doors extends through to a charming double aspect garden room with French doors to the garden terrace. There is a well proportioned double aspect dining room with French doors leading out to the veranda and garden terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is a special feature of the property and incorporates extensive handmade oak lined cupboards and drawers with polished granite work surfaces and upstands, integrated Miele dishwasher, double fridge and double freezer and a traditional cooking range by Everhot (150 Series) set beneath an attractive canopy containing extractor and cooker LED spotlights. Additional features include a central island unit, a handmade double bowl ceramic sink with mixer tap and a separate utility room with superb storage. The utility room connects with the kitchen and in turn leads to the garden. Also on the ground floor is a study and cloakroom.

On the first floor accessed from an attractive landing with space for occasional furniture are four double bedrooms. The master and second bedroom have their own dedicated en suite facilities. Bedrooms two, three and four are situated at the rear of the property and enjoy Cotswold views. The luxurious family bathroom has a separate bath and shower and a French console style basin.

The Planning permission granted in 2012 for the construction of the garden room (constructed in 2014) also permitted conversion of the garage to a living room and the construction of a chimney at the rear to accommodate a wood burning stove and that unused part of the permission still exists.
