House is packed with period charm
The Walnuts at Arnesby presents a dramatic contrast of Tudor charm and contemporary style.
A picture in black and white, the traditional, gabled cottage fronting St Peter's Road dates from 1590, making it one of the oldest houses in this pretty south Leicestershire village.
Unfurnished and available from October, the Walnuts offers stylish family living in a sympathetically refurbished, five-bedroom cottage. Grade II-listed, it is bristling with original beams and there's barely a straight line in sight.
Today's accommodation has been creatively refurbished to enhance the original period features, dark, exposed timbers and whitewashed walls forming a stunning backdrop for the winning combination of classic and contemporary design.

The oak front door leads into a generous entrance hall, boarded in oak and with a French door onto the rear terrace.
Leading round at the back is the bespoke breakfast kitchen, slate floored and refitted in oak, with a central island, granite and beech worktops and a Rangemaster cooker. A separate utility room with Belfast sink leads off.
The formal dining room features oak flooring and an arched brick fireplace.
The spacious, split-level lounge also includes a brick feature fireplace and there are French doors onto the rear terrace, with circular decked areas for lounging and al fresco dining.
With its low ceiling the snug/family room is perfect as a cinema room and there is also a study.
First floor bedrooms lead from a long, light landing and ceilings are vaulted in line with the A-framed building.
The master bedroom is spectacular, both in look and dimension, with a luxury, open-plan en-suite bathroom including raised slate tiled floor, freestanding bath and sunken, walk-in shower.
Outside the large rear garden is landscaped and lawned, with safe play for children and there's a detached double garage with generous eaves storage.
