THE PROPERTY

Whites Farm in part dates back to 1622 and exhibits many period features expected of a house of its age, including many exposed beams, cruck beams and a plank and muntin screen in the cross passage hall. The house was substantially enlarged in 2003, with the works carried out to a meticulous standard, to blend perfectly with the original dwelling, much of the work being carried out by Carpenter Oak. An oak entrance porch and panelled front door leads in to a reception hall with slate flagstone floor and continues through to the cross passage hall. A delightful sitting room has double aspect with leaded light windows, deep sandstone sills, a fireplace with heavy Bressumer beam and a Burley wood burning stove. The dining room also has an impressive fireplace with magnificent beam, two bread ovens, a wall of oak book/display shelves and a wood burning stove. The kitchen was refitted by the present owner to a particularly high standard, designed and fitted by Hatchery Kitchens. It includes floor mounted panel fronted cupboards, topped with granite, a central island with an AEG induction hob and oven below, an oil fired four oven AGA, a built-in American style fridge freezer and a built-in dishwasher. There is a boot room, utility with a range of shelving, pantry with a walk-in larder and a cloakroom to the eastern end of the house. A turning staircase with timber arches leads to the first floor landing and gives access to good sized bedrooms, the principal bedroom being particularly of note with a range of oak built hanging cupboards and a double aspect enjoying the glorious views. Both the bathroom and the shower room have been particularly well designed and fitted to a high standard with ceramic tiling, walk in showers and stylish sanitary ware. In addition to the main house, there is a pretty stone cottage and includes a well fitted kitchen/breakfast area, an open plan sitting room with an inglenook style fireplace with wood burning stove. There are two bedrooms, one with en suite and a well fitted bathroom.
