The White House is a fine detached Victorian house circa 1865, with elegant proportions and many original features, however, offers great potential for expansion, reconfiguration, and sympathetic restoration. The house occupies an idyllic no-through road position just off the village green and is set within wonderful gardens and grounds extending to about 1.1 acres including a paddock that could easily accommodate a pony/ponies. The accommodation comprises a long reception hall that spans the length of the property with stairs to the first floor, a door to the rear lobby, and a cloakroom WC and shower room just off. There are four reception rooms including an elegantly proportioned sitting room with a feature fireplace and hand-crafted book shelving. This room opens to a generous dining room with a skylight and in turn, gives access to the garden room. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke solid pine cabinetry with space for a fridge/freezer, washing machine and oil-fired Aga. Upstairs, off the landing, there are five bedrooms, plus a family bathroom.
Outside, a generous gravel driveway provides parking for multiple vehicles and leads to a detached garage and double cart lodge (requiring repair). The formal garden is laid mainly to lawn with well-stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, a rose garden and a wildlife meadow area. The garden is flanked by mature trees and bushes and a paved pathway leads to the rear garden where there is access to the paddock which is currently laid to pasture. All extends to about 1.1 acres and enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion with far-reaching undulating countryside views beyond.
