THE PROPERTY

MAGNIFICENT ARTS AND CRAFTS HOME IN THE HEART OF THE VILLAGE WITH GLORIOUS VIEWS ....... The White House forms the principle half of the original Arts and Crafts property, believed to have been built between 1891-1896 (Buckland Parish Records) and is reminiscent particularly of C.F.A. Voysey with its sweeping roofs, soaring chimneys, tile hanging, multiple gables, leaded lights, exposed timbering and the hand crafted details. The original oak staircase leads to a magnificent first floor landing, which extends to some 32 feet in length. The current owners have made some positive improvements, including installing a superb kitchen, whilst opening this room into the dining room to take advantage of the southerly aspect and the wonderful outlook of the gardens. The majority of the rooms enjoy a superb aspect over the established grounds, which in turn backs onto open countryside, with beautiful far-reaching views to the south and southwest, with the Surrey Hills being visible on a clear day. The grounds are an outstanding feature of The White House and have been well-maintained over many years, consisting of broad sweeping lawns, numerous established trees and shrubs. Just to the rear of the house, there is a verandah, which gives way to a substantial sun terrace making for a delightful seating area. To the front, the driveway provides ample parking and also leads to the two garages. In all, the grounds extend to about 2/3 of an acre.
