Designed and constructed by the award winning Octagon Developments in 2006, High Trees is a handsome, detached house of quality, located in a premier position within the sought after William Webb Garden Estate. With imposing exteriors reflecting seventeenth century architecture, the house has large, multi-pane sash windows with stone lintels, a stone portico and red brick quoins. Internally the spacious accommodation is laid out over three floors with features including tall ceilings, under floor heating to the ground and first levels and a sweeping oak staircase. Reception areas are gracious with ample space for family living and entertaining, whilst the kitchen/breakfast room opens to an orangery style area for casual dining and is comprehensively furnished with a range of wall and floor cabinets, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances.

The property is located on the prestigious William Webb Estate, now designated as a Conservation Area. The Webb Estate was laid out between the end of the 19th Century and the early 20th with the roads gently curving to give the best possible plots for William Webb's principal of "Gardens First".
