About this property

  • The White House is a spacious property with eminently flexible accommodation and the potential to create an annexe from one wing. It offers the highly sought-after combination of tennis court, stables and paddock. The house is south-facing and benefits from light and bright rooms throughout.

    The entrance hall, with wooden floorboards, offers access to the dual-aspect drawing room, with fireplace, French doors onto a south-facing terrace and also a large bay window overlooking a raised west-facing terrace and the Wylye valley beyond. A sitting room, with wooden floorboards and a fireplace, has French doors onto the terrace. The adjacent dining room, again with wooden floorboards, has a walk-in larder and French doors opening into a south-facing conservatory, with doors onto the terrace. The practical kitchen benefits from an oil-fired AGA and integrated appliances, including a Neff oven and hob, a dishwasher and a fridge. A large utility room/laundry has further units, a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, a water softener and a door to the back garden/access to the gardener's WC and boot room. There is also a door through to the integral single garage, with electric roller-shutter door and access to the rear lobby. Completing the ground floor is a study with a fireplace and also a cloakroom.

    Upstairs, the dual-aspect principal bedroom is accessed via one of it's dressing rooms. Its has far-reaching views over the gardens, paddock and countryside beyond. This principal suite also has a second dressing room and an en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, in addition to a family shower room and separate WC. One of the bedroom suites has it's own staircase down to a door to the driveway, hence the option of creating an annexe, possibly incorporating part of the large utility room below it.

    The house is approached down a quiet no-through lane, onto a driveway with parking for numerous cars. In addition to the integral single garage, there is an attractive timber-framed double garage.

    The owners have created a delightful garden, with an abundance of shrubs and mature trees. There is an extensive vegetable and fruit garden, which includes asparagus beds, a greenhouse, a garden shed and wood store. Both the paddock and the garden benefit from fruit trees and a pretty mill stream, with marsh marigolds growing at the water's edge, runs along the southern boundary of the paddock.
    The hard tennis court is approximately 20 years old and was re-surfaced in 2014.

    The property has a large stable yard, with direct access to both the lane and into it's paddock. The timber stable block incorporates three loose boxes, a tack room and a store room and opens on to hard-standing.

This is a wonderfully light house and I love the gardens and tennis court.
