About this property

  • A most light and spacious home evoking all the great aspects of the Art Deco period. The White House comprises an excellent lateral house over two floors only with many rooms being double or even triple aspect. The layout would arguably suit many buyers but changes can be made, subject to permission being sought, if desired.

    The exterior was redecorated in 2019 and the house has been meticulously maintained. The ground floor accommodation comprises large entrance hall, drawing room with doors to enclosed loggia, dining room, morning room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, walk-in larder and guest cloakroom. The first floor plan comprises five bedrooms and two bathrooms. A wall could be reinstated to provide a dressing room to the principal bedroom which is currently open to one of the bedrooms. Four of the bedrooms enjoy southerly aspects.

    Outside the house is surrounded by mature gardens with lawned areas, a rose garden, kitchen garden, mature planted beds and specimen trees including Mountain Ash and liquidambar on the south lawn. There are numerous brick-built storage rooms including a gardener's loo, apple store, pram shed, potting shed and double garage. There is also a generous parking area and a fabulous paved terrace to the rear of the house.
