WITH A 145 FT GARDEN, DOUBLE GARAGE, THREE LIVING ROOMS, FOUR BEDROOMS, TWO EN SUITES & STYLISH FAMILY KITCHEN, WHITE HART HOUSE IS A FINE RESTORATION OF A PERIOD VILLAGE HOME. Having undergone a comprehensive restoration by the current owners, White Hart House offers the character and charm of its historical past with the benefits of a modern-day home. In the past eight years improvements include a newly tiled roof, repointed chimney, new pressurised central heating system, new gas boiler, rewiring, reconditioned and new period style double glazed windows with many rooms replastered and new decoration throughout. Whilst improving the property the owners have been careful to retain and enhance the character with ledged and braced oak doors, feature fireplaces with inset living flame fire and log burners along with herringbone woodblock and engineered oak flooring. The layout is ideal for modern living with an impressive reception hall/dining or study area leading to two further reception rooms and a good size shaker kitchen /breakfast room forms the heart of the house. Whilst on the first floor there are four bedrooms and the rare feature of two en-suites and bathroom, all with stylish period sanitary ware. Externally the space is echoed, having a 145ft garden and a double garage with additional parking. A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the careful restoration and lifestyle that White Hart House now offers.
