    About this property

    • White Hill Farmhouse is likely to date back to the 18th century and extended in later years, now providing spacious, well laid out accommodation over two floors. This handsome property has predominantly stone and brick elevations under a slate roof, is not listed and has been sympathetically refurbished in recent years retaining some attractive period features including exposed brick, timbers and open fireplaces. There are some nice rooms including a spacious drawing room with fireplace and double doors to the garden, a large reception hall, well fitted kitchen with AGA and adjoining dining room with inglenook fireplace and a second reception room with book shelves currently in use as a study. On the first floor are five good size bedrooms many of the windows enjoying views over open country.

      White Hill Farmhouse is approached from the lane via a private gravel drive that sweeps round to the north east of the house where there is parking for several cars and access to an attractive double car port and garage. The garden is principally laid to lawn interspersed with some fine mature trees, and shrubs. To the south is a gravelled area and terrace and on the west outside the kitchen is an area of decking. On the other side of the drive, to the north is the paddock with post and rail fence and mature boundary hedge. To the north east the ground rises towards Bulbarrow Hill, an impressive local land mark from where there are breathtaking views over the patchwork quilt of the Blackmore Vale.
