About this property

  • White House is a charming Grade II listed village home of mixed ages dating from 1550s with later additions situated in an elevated position in the centre of this popular village. The house offers well-presented and proportioned accommodation retaining many period features complimented with modern embellishments including a bespoke kitchen, multi paned sash windows, exposed floorboards and attractive fireplaces. Of particular note is the impressive orangery which was added in 2011 together with the annexe within the garage created in 2006. Also of note are the delightful gardens which surround the house and have an open outlook to the rear over adjoining farmland.

    The principal reception rooms provide excellent areas for both formal entertaining and family living. The spacious double aspect drawing room has an open fireplace and double doors leading to the orangery which has an impressive vaulted ceiling and direct access to the garden. The dining room has a charming outlook to the front, a fireplace with fitted cupboards to either side and open studwork to the kitchen/breakfast room.

    The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of bespoke wall and base cupboards by Woodwork with a matching island unit providing a breakfast bar, and integral appliances including an electric Aga.

    The well-proportioned study has an outlook over the front garden, a bank of fitted bookshelves and access to a space attic.

    Arranged over the first floor are five double bedrooms, all with an attractive outlook over the gardens and beyond. One is served by an en suite shower room and four have fitted wardrobes.

    The well-appointed family bathroom with separate shower cubicle completes the accommodation.
