This is a magnificent five-bedroom detached residence, uniquely positioned to overlook the 12th fairway of the majestic Mount Juliet Estate golf course. Widely regarded as being one of the finest in the world, the championship course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and holds firm international status.
The property was built by the current owners in 2002 – 2003 on a site extending over half an acre. The exterior architecture forms adhere to the Palladian style of design and the frontage modestly exudes grandeur. Interior features include delightful ceiling cornices and central roses; the Kitchen and Main Lounge fireplace also reflect Georgian-style architecture.
The house enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and its dual bay windowed façade makes for remarkable presentation. It extends to 5,760 sq.ft / 535.25 sq.m and comprises extensive living and bedroom accommodation. There are five bedrooms, eight bathrooms (five ensuites), four reception rooms, a games room, conservatory and a south-facing sun balcony, which overlooks the golf course.
Externally, there is a double-garage, outhouses and a private tennis court (Number 2 is the only house on the Estate with a tennis court).
There are a number of patios and barbecue areas and the landscaped grounds are masterfully planted. The overall property is very private. 2 The Walton’s is one of only three large detached houses built in this prime location on the Estate.
The heating is powered by gas with an easy-to-use underfloor system in the kitchen, conservatory, hallway, gallery and ensuites; the house has superb insulation throughout.
2 The Walton’s is undoubtedly one of the finest properties on the Mount Juliet Estate. Its location is convenient to the five-star Manor House Hotel (home to the Michelin Star Lady Helen restaurant) and to numerous other amenities also on the Estate. The Hound Restaurant and Bar at Hunter’s Yard, Jack’s Bar in the clubhouse (a new addition, named after Nicklaus), the Health Centre and the Equestrian Centre are all within a short distance. The Estate is professionally managed and to a very high standard.

A feeling of period opulence is present in all of the reception rooms in Mount Juliet House. The panelled walls of the Tetrarch Bar recall a glorious equestrian past. The award winning Michelin Star Lady Helen Dining Room is unique both for the panoramic views it enjoys over the Estate and the River Nore, and for its outstanding cuisine.
