    About this property

    • The White House is a handsome family home, extended over time to provide spacious and adaptable accommodation, with the potential for further improvement.

      The rooms are light and spacious, with good ceiling heights throughout and stylishly presented with oak flooring to the entrance hall and period features including parquet flooring and a wide brick fireplace with wood burning stove to the sitting room. There is a modern open plan feel to the interlinking and generously proportioned living space comprising a family room, conservatory opening out to the garden, a breakfast room and a country-style kitchen, complete with an Aga.

      The accommodation currently incorporates a self-contained ground floor annexe, with scope for updating or re-configuring the layout to suit individual requirements, or perhaps to amalgamate with the main house. The annexe currently provides two bedrooms, a small kitchen, a bathroom and a store room.

      The White House is set within an enclosed garden with an area of lawn to the rear flanked by a brick wall and herbaceous border to one side and panel fencing and the rear elevation of a neighbouring outbuilding to the other.

      To the side of the property is a gated driveway entrance, with a parking and turning area, walled courtyard, a raised fish pond and a to the front a small hedged area of garden providing privacy.

    A deceptively spacious house with great potential and enjoying an excellent tucked away position in one of my favorite villages.
