The Property White Gates is a Grade II Listed house noted as dating from the 17th Century and this is the first time it has been on the market in over 60 years. Much of its original character is revealed including chamfered ceiling timbers, period doors and large inglenook fireplaces in the two reception rooms. It is a bright house with quite spacious rooms and it is fair to say the house has been well looked after over the years but some of the fixtures and fittings are now a little dated in style, most notably the kitchen and bathrooms, and this gives a new owner the opportunity to make their own mark on this lovely family home.

Outside The house is set some 250m back from the road in a quiet location and is set within 4.77ac of garden and paddocks. The drive is tree lined and leads past the three grass paddocks up to the surrounding garden of the house. The grounds contain a number of mature trees, well stocked flower beds giving year round colour, and roses adorn the front of the house. To the side is a sheltered courtyard area flanked by the period barn which has been used just as storage but has potential for various other uses such as an annex or home office area (subject to planning). Also within the grounds is a pond and a double garage, orchard, vegetable garden, potting shed and greenhouse.

Services Mains water (not metered) and electricity are connected. Private drainage to a modern package treatment plant. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators
