A delightful period house well-positioned in a rural hamlet with mature gardens and paddocks of about 7 acres
White Ladies is a charming detached period house which is understood to be several hundred years old, evidenced by the impressive timber framing revealed in the original part of the house. It is said that the house is named after a herd of white cattle that used to graze there. The current owner has been in the property for 48 years and has extended the house creating well-proportioned family accommodation. Particular features include exposed beams and timbers throughout the original part of the house, an open fireplace with stone surround in the drawing room and lovely views over the garden and paddocks.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a good range of white units and corner bench seat whilst the family room and study both benefit from doors opening out onto the southerly terrace.
On the first floor the main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a walk through wardrobe to Bedroom 5/dressing room. There are a further four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
