The Property

Church Walk House is one of only 6 other bespoke village properties built by Hopkins Homes in 2014. These distinctive houses are built to a neo-Victorian design and although being essentially new, the properties form part of the established village scene with views onto the grounds of Stoke College. As one would expect from a new build, the house combines all the ‘mod cons’ but offers many characteristics and charm of a period home. This, coupled with the property’s discreet yet convenient central village location heightens its overall appeal.

A gabled storm porch leads into the welcoming entrance hall with solid oak flooring which continues through to the triple aspect Aga kitchen/family room which is stylishly fitted with solid granite worktops and kitchen island together with a comprehensive range of cupboards and display cabinets. Via the dining area, full height French windows lead onto the private rear terrace and garden.

The two front reception rooms overlook the pretty front garden which is defined by wrought iron railings. Being an attractive focal point to the room, the triple aspect sitting room offers a central redbrick fireplace with wood burner.

The first floor has a practical and pleasing layout with the bedrooms set around a central landing. Both front bedrooms (with master ensuite and dressing room) provide the most far-reaching views over the surrounding college grounds via ornate gothic arched windows, which are a distinguishing feature to these houses. Bedroom two, which is to the rear of the house, overlooks the entire rear garden via a central bay window which is ideal for a dressing table.


Being comparatively unusual for a modern property, the house is set within some 0.2 of an acre of private and thoughtfully designed gardens which are principally to the rear. A rear boundary wall gives the garden an established feel together with a line of mature sycamore and ash trees. A side and rear terrace leads onto an area of lawn which is defined by well stocked flower borders. A further patio is positioned centrally within the lawn which is bordered by lavender. To one side, the property offers ample off road parking which leads up to the detached garage (3.68m x 6.04m) with power and lighting. A modern bunded oil tank is discreetly positioned behind the garage, screened by a wicker fence.
