Ganly Walters is proud to present The White House to the market. Built in 1964 and further developed in 1984 by the current owners, The White House is a substantial 6 bedroom detached family home, full of character and a magical charm that is truly special and unique. Set over three levels on a secluded 2 acre elevated site, surrounded by rich woodland and terraced gardens in a most picturesque setting. The property stands an impressive 420 sq.m (4520 sq.ft )approx. Architecturally delightful with design by a team that included the renowned Duncan Stewart, evoking echoes of a bygone era, while encompassing an indoor outdoor living theme.

The property floods with natural light by the banks of windows and French doors, enjoying picture windows in every room capturing generous and expansive views.
