Property Description

The White House is a sensational semi-detached Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse believed to date back to the 18th Century. The front façade is both striking and beautiful with sash windows and steps up to the recessed front door. The current owners have cherished this home for the last five decades and it is very much a home with soul and character.

Upstairs, the first floor comprises the sitting room which is a generously proportioned room with sash windows and open fireplace.
