A beautifully renovated Arts & Crafts house standing in mature grounds on the edge of a village.
Located on the edge of the village Whitewalls is set within its own grounds and approached via a sweeping driveway. This leads through electric gate and sweeps through mature trees to a parking and turning area at the front of the house. The house stands in grounds of just under one acre.
It is a substantial and handsome house with accommodation arranged on three floors. In recent years it has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of repair and modernisation with the result being an impressive and tastefully presented home ideal for modern family living. Despite its age and the extent of the recent work the building retains many architectural features of the period, including the wonderful Crittall windows.
A panelled front door opens to a hall with wood block flooring and stairs to the first floor. On the ground floor are three impressive reception rooms, including a spacious drawing room with parquet flooring and a fireplace, a dining room and sitting room leading to a conservatory. In addition, there is a high quality contemporary kitchen with a tiled floor and range cooker, a utility room, study and cloakroom. The study links to a workshop and double garage, with a carport beyond. There is underfloor heating in both the kitchen and utility.
On the first floor is a principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms, two further bathrooms and separate WC. On the second floor are two further bedrooms and a sitting room/play room. There is underfloor heating to all bathrooms.
Outside there is a large store shed (formerly the original garage of the family who built Whitewalls) and there is a separate coal store.
The grounds are well planned with a variety of mature trees, lawns, beds and borders stocked with numerous shrubs and plants. At the rear is a paved dining terrace. It has its own functioning flagpole and original rotating sun house on a circular monorail.
The quality of the finish here is simply wonderful - it is a fantastic family home.Charlie Kannreuther
