Walnut Cottage enjoys arguably one of the prettiest and private settings in the area, situated down a quiet country lane with a wonderful, elevated aspect over surrounding countryside and over the nearby river towards Croome Park in the distance. Having previously formed part of the Madresfield Estate and believed to date back to the 16th Century in parts, the property was once a Foreman's Cottage and would have no doubt formed an important part of local village life. Its idyllic and attractive gardens surround the property and offer a wealth of mature planting, creating a stunning setting with which to enjoy the situation. Inside the cottage, there is a host of original character and charm, with exposed beams and wooden latch-key doors throughout, delightful ingle-nook fireplace and exposed brickwork. All of theses features combine with modern and classical touches, such as the newly fitted kitchen, en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath and dressing room area serving the main bedroom along with the addition of two conservatories. The property has been sensitively and imaginatively extended over several years to offer increased and useable accommodation space, without losing any of its wonderful history and charm.
