5 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
Situated in the heart of this attractive North Norfolk Village, White House is a beautifully presented and substantial Grade II listed house with wonderful south facing gardens of half an acre (STMS). Whilst the house has an elegant and traditional road frontage, it is approached via the secure electric gates to the side that give access to both the garaging and the gravelled parking at the rear. Having been lovingly restored and extended by the current owners, what is immediately obvious on entering the house is the welcoming abundance of living and entertaining space that flows throughout the ground floor. The main entrance hallway doubles up as a morning room and central library off which all the principal rooms lead. To the front is the 'L' shaped formal drawing and dining room, to one side is the boot room and utility room with a separate door out to the garden, whilst to the other side is the perfectly proportioned kitchen breakfast room with French doors out to the covered and sheltered patio garden. In addition and tucked away to the end of the older part of the house there is a delightful snug with inglenook fireplace and with the downstairs WC and shower room this could easily double as a downstairs bedroom. There are two sets of stairs in the house, one that leads up into the older part of the house and gives access to three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and the other two served by a family bathroom whilst the other set of stairs lead off the entrance hall and give access up to the grand master bedroom suite with shower room, walk in dressing room and bedroom with far reaching views south over the roiling countryside.
Outside there is a separate home office with outdoor WC, a large garage with workshop to rear and an open sided cart shed with three bays. The garden is open to the south and mostly laid to lawn.
To the rear of the garden is a post and rail paddock that extends to approximately 1.5 acres (STMS) with a two bay stable block with tack room and feed store, all of which is available by separate negotiation. The paddock has a second separate access gate giving access from the road, as well as from the rear of the property, if required.
The White House was lovingly refurbished and thoughtfully extended into what it is today, a period home but perfectly arranged for modern family living with the added benefit of excellent equestrian facilities.
RINGSTEAD Ringstead is a small village slightly inland from Hunstanton. The village has a good village shop combined with a large antique centre. There is a garden centre and the Gin Trap pub and restaurant. The village is near to the North Norfolk coast with its many attractions. The Hunstanton Golf Club and the Royal West Norfolk Golf Club are both relatively close-by.
