A stunning Grade II Listed farmhouse with a number of outbuildings

*No Onward Chain* Vendors moving due to family circumstances.

Set back from the road at the bottom of a long part gravelled driveway, White House Farm is a stunning Grade II Listed Farmhouse offering spacious, light and beautifully presented accommodation throughout. With a wealth of period features and character, such as exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces, the property offers flexible space ideal for modern family life.

A welcoming entrance leads through into the two main reception rooms; a large, triple-aspect sitting room and spacious dual-aspect dining room, both with exposed timbers and an inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove. In addition, both rooms benefit from double doors leading to different parts of the garden. The newly refurbished kitchen is fitted with a number of wall and base units, with central island and Aga. A further room downstairs is currently utilised as a bedroom, but would also serve as a useful study or playroom if required.

There is also a utility room, a rear boot room; with access to outside, and a cloakroom. To the first and second floor are five double bedrooms, two family bathrooms and an ensuite. Of particular note, the top floor could be utilised as a principle or guest suite, and much of the house enjoying views over the tranquil gardens and countryside beyond.

The long driveway, which sweeps round to the rear of the property, leads to parking and turning for a number of vehicles. Immediately surrounding the house are the more formal gardens, comprising a south-east facing terrace, ideal space for al fresco dining and entertaining; an area of lawn bordered by mature plants and shrubs and a beautiful pond. To the front aspect is the paddock, surrounded by post and rail fencing. In addition is the substantial barn, with mezzanine floor, and stables with tack room and kennel, all of which offer a great opportunity for storage, and subject to the necessary consents, could offer potential for conversion to ancillary accommodation or home offices.
