A charming period home in an idyllic setting offering excellent leisure facilities with a pool, tennis court and just under 4 acres of formal gardens and paddock.
This charming period home is Grade II listed and is, in parts, believed to date back to the 17th century. Extended over the years, to connect with an adjacent barn, the accommodation offers excellent family living space, with a wonderful aspect over landscaped gardens.
On the ground floor a central entrance hall gives access to the principal reception areas which include a dining room with exposed beams and ornamental inglenook fireplace, drawing room, snug, west facing conservatory and a fitted study. The kitchen breakfast room has a traditional range of fitted cupboards and an Aga. There is also a utility / boot room and guest cloakroom.
Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en suite). One of these rooms has its own staircase, accessed off the snug. There are some lovely fitted wardrobes and bathroom cabinetry by Smallbone.
Outside, White Pastures is set within grounds of 3.81 acres, split between the formal landscaped gardens and paddock area. The gardens themselves have been tastefully planted to provide much interest, with a wonderful selection of borders, specimen trees, shrubs and fruit trees. An ambling wisteria clambers over the front of the house. Sitting in the conservatory, you have a great view over the garden and the paddock beyond.
The paddocks have their own entrance off the lane.
The leisure facilities are exemplary with a heated swimming pool, tennis court and games room. To the side of the pool are changing rooms, a summer house and plant room.
There is parking for several vehicles in front of the double garage.
