Individually designed and built in the early 1990s in the traditional Cotswold style, The Walled Garden is a substantial, detached, four-bedroom family house with well-proportioned accommodation, making for a spacious and comfortable family home. In the heart of Filkins, it is approached through an imposing stone gateway with wrought iron gates and shared gravelled driveway, with a double garage and parking space for several cars.

A storm porch over the front door leads into the entrance hall with downstairs cloakroom and stairs up to the first floor. Glazed double doors lead ahead into the dining room, overlooking the garden to the rear, and left into the sitting room. With a window to the front and attractive bay window to the side, this comfortable room features an attractive fireplace with inset coal-effect gas fire. Beyond, through glazed double doors, is the conservatory, opening into the rear garden. To the right of the front door overlooking the front garden is a good-sized study. At the other side of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room, and beyond a family/garden room with access via double doors to the rear garden. The kitchen is finished with white ceramic floor tiles and fitted a range of oak wall and base units, with tiled work surfaces and splashbacks, integrated double oven, gas hob and dishwasher, and space for an under-cabinet fridge/freezer. Beyond is the utility room with space for washing machine and dryer. A back door leads to the side of the house and paved pathway to the double garage. Stairs from the hall rise to the first floor and the large, galleried landing with four good-sized double bedrooms, two of which have ensuites, and a separate family bathroom.

Outside, the house is set within its own grounds, with an open aspect to the front and secluded, private south-west facing garden to the rear, totally enclosed by a stone wall - as the house's name suggests. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with shrubs and trees. Across the rear is a terraced patio - an attractive area seating and al fresco dining area.
