A charming edge of village house, enjoying a south facing position with delightful gardens and grounds.
The White House is a charming period house, believed to date back to the late 18th century, enjoying a peaceful edge of village position, set in delightful mature gardens.
The house has been sympathetically improved to make use of all space and its south facing position, with plenty of natural light. The main entrance is onto the rear hall, which leads into the open plan kitchen/sitting/breakfast area. This is a lovely room, dual aspect to the east and south and with oil fired Rayburn, and providing a dining area, seating area, and then kitchen units. Further to this main room is a separate dining room leading into the drawing room, with fireplace and window seat with shutters. The ground floor accommodation includes further useful rooms including utility and WC.
Stairs lead up to the first floor landing, with fine views of the garden, and leading to all rooms. There is a well proportioned master bedroom suite, incorporating a bath in the main room and an en-suite shower room. There are a further two bedrooms, and family bathroom.
The house is in good order having recently been the subject of a redecoration programme, with under floor heating to the ground floor and bathrooms.
Adjoining the house to the southwest is the traditionally built Old Stables, which is currently used as storage, and is a large space of approximately 22ft x 14 ft, and suitable for a variety of uses which could also be incorporated into the main house subject to gaining the necessary consents.
Separate to the house is a timber studio, with windows.
The White House is approached from the east, onto a gravelled drive through wrought iron gates flanked by wrought iron park railings, to a gravelled parking and turning area. There are parking for a number of cars, and this area adjoins the Old Stable, studio and house.
The gardens and grounds are a particularly attractive feature of the house, and have been well arranged and improved to create different areas of interest. The main area of lawn is to the south of the house, sweeping round to the east of the house, with a paved seating area adjoining the house from the kitchen and dining room and separated from the lawns by rose and lavender beds with box hedging. The house is clad in wisteria, with an established fig and mature apple also to the south.
To the east of the house is the kitchen garden, with square beds bordered in part by box hedging, with kitchen and cutting garden, espaliered fruit trees, many shrubs and greenhouse. A path leads round to the north where there is a courtyard garden, partly paved, and wood store with picket fence and gate back onto the gravelled parking area. A further area of shrubs and well stocked herbaceous borders are to the west of the main lawn, leading into a wooded area, and with a path through wrought iron park fencing back to the parking area.
There is a further area of garden and wooded area to the west of the parking area, adjoining the studio.
