    About this property

    • Whitelands is a most delightful well proportioned family home, on the market for the first time in 53 years with no onward chain and offering light and airy accommodation approaching 3,000sq ft. The principal accommodation is positioned to make the most of the south facing rear aspect and benefits from full height windows and sliding doors. The property sits within lawned gardens of about 0.61 of an acre and provides a wonderful tranquil setting.

      Principal reception rooms comprise a triple aspect sitting room with sliding doors leading out to the terrace, a feature fireplace and fitted shelving, a dining room of superb proportions and a family room, both dual aspect with full height picture windows. Altogether they offer an excellent suite of rooms for entertaining and all enjoy views over the south facing gardens.

      The kitchen/breakfast room is comprehensively fitted with a range of wall and base cupboards with worktops, several integral appliances and a dishwasher. There is a larder cupboard, access to a useful second front porch and an adjoining utility room with space for appliances and incorporating a downstairs cloakroom.

      A conservatory linked to the kitchen/breakfast room via bi-fold doors provides access to and views over the gardens.

      The principal bedroom is well-proportioned and enjoys southerly views and benefits from an en-suite bathroom.

      There are four further bedrooms. Two have southerly garden views, one has an en suite shower and basin and one is currently used as a dressing room for the principal bedroom.

      The family bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

      Whitelands is approached over a generous driveway which provides ample parking and leads to the detached double garage. There are established shrubs to the perimeter and an area of lawn to one side. Stone steps lead down to the front of the property.

      The gardens are a particular feature of the property and are mainly laid to lawn and south facing. To the rear is a paved terrace spanning the width of the property, which is adorned with wisteria, providing an ideal area for al fresco entertaining. There is a pond to one side and two sets of stone steps leading down to the lawned area which is bordered by mature, well stocked beds incorporating a variety of established evergreen shrub, trees and hedging to including acers, ferns and roses, which frame the view over the grounds of the neighbouring private Dene Park estate.
