A Grade II listed detached village home set in 1.6 acres with an outdoor swimming pool set in a no through private road.
The White House was originally a barn dating from the C17th, later divided into two houses probably in the mid C19th, and then converted into one home in 2003. The property, which has been in the same family for generations, is built in brick with painted and timbered elevations under a thatched roof. Listed Grade II the property was extensively refurbished in 2007/2008 including damp proofing, re-wiring and re-plumbing.
The property was rethatched in Turkish reed in 1998/1999 and the ridge of the thatch was replaced in 2019. There are a wealth of period features throughout the property including timber latch doors, exposed beams and working fireplaces. At present the accommodation is based on three reception rooms across the front of the property, with a large kitchen breakfast across the back, overlooking and opening onto the gardens.
As the property was previously two cottages there are still two staircases to the first floor, each leading to two bedrooms and a bathroom. The property may therefore lend itself to buyers looking for annexe or similar, potential. The property sits off the no-through private road with ample parking and a detached garage with workshop space, and power and light. There is also a large aluminium framed greenhouse, timber summerhouse and timber shed housing the filtration unit for the swimming pool. The swimming pool measures 32' x 16' with a depth from 3ft to 9 feet. The gardens are a lovely feature being laid to lawn with an orchard area and bordered on one side by the River Isbourne. The total area extends to 1.6 acres. The property is offered with NO ONWARD CHAIN.

The space of this garden was such a surprise, and being this close to a town but away from passing traffic is so unusual, its a great setting and a lovely home full of character.Catherine Anderson
