One of only 20 Grade II listed properties in the area, White Cottage is a testament to architectural design and tradition.
Based upon the revival of mediaeval hall houses, the property includes a vast 46ft, south-west facing living space that overlooks a 90ft rear, walled garden. Replete with considered architectural and design features, the property is a fine example of the ‘arts and crafts’ style. Core characteristics of this movement included a belief in traditional craftsmanship that stresses the inherent beauty of the material, the importance of nature as inspiration and the value of utility.
Entrants to the property are greeted by a good sized entrance hall with a characterful oak wooden staircase, in keeping with the quality of materials used throughout the home. The drawing room, including a raised stage with stained glass windows, sets the tone for this charming and truly unique period house.
Direct access to the rear garden, with a pavilion, is provided through an elegant conservatory fitted with dark wooden beams and oak lead framed windows. The architect’s meticulous attention to detail is still preserved in its original forms of door handles, hinges, windows and door latches. Facing the courtyard, a dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room connects to the wine cellar.
The Master Suite is on the first floor, with three more double bedrooms and impressive Victorian bathroom featuring twin basins, oak wooden flooring and arched decorative plaster ceiling. This magnificent Tudor house represents an opportunity to own a piece of English heritage.
