Situated on the outskirts of this popular village, within easy commuting distances of Wisbech, Kings Lynn and Peterborough, this charming property has in the past been a successful livery yard and riding school, but currently White House Farm is a comfortable family home with classic period features of white rendered elevations under a slate tiled roof and having traditional well stocked gardens. As well as the excellent equestrian facilities there are also barns, garaging and to the rear of the house is a courtyard leading to a long red brick outbuilding currently a garage and stores but could with the right permissions be converted to annexe accommodation if desired.
This large farmhouse is approached off the private driveway into the spacious side conservatory, used as a sitting are and breakfast room. From here a door opens into the dual aspect sitting room with feature brick fireplace having an inset multi fuel stove and the sitting room is open plan to the kitchen. Doors off lead to the front porch and entrance door which is rarely used and a further door opens to the large dining room, also having a feature Victorian fireplace and archway back through to the kitchen which is over 27’ in length and is galley style with a propane gas range cooker set in a brick inglenook to one end, door to rear porch in the middle and a door to the inner hall which has stairs which turn and rise to the first floor. Off the inner hall is a third reception room used as a study with access from here to the utility room, cloakroom and timber lean to conservatory on the side. On the first floor are four good sized double bedrooms, some with built-in wardrobes and the principal bedroom having an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is large and has a period style roll top bath with claw feet, wash hand basin, fitted shower cubicle and a WC.
The property is set well back off the road behind a very private, mature front garden and to the rear is a paved courtyard with brick built double garage and stores which include a heated tack room, feed room and rug store having plumbing for washing machines. The private driveway is to the side of the property and a wide farm gate opens to a large vehicle parking area where there is a modern timber built larger than average double garage and access to the equestrian facilities. Beyond the main stabling in a private setting is a large stocked fish pond bordered by lawns interspersed with fruit trees and shrubs.
Located behind the house are the stable blocks providing 17 stables of various sizes plus there is a tack room, rest room with windows overlooking the manege which is 50m x 30m having a separate lunging area to the front and a winter turnout area/small sand arena to the side. There are also two large useful barns and a twin tractor store which could also be used for additional stabling.
Paddocks & Land
A central grassed avenue leads between the well maintained post and rail paddocks, having field shelters and water to drinking troughs. To the front are three smaller paddocks and the furthest paddocks are used for hay and to the rear via a gate is access directly onto an extensive bridleway. In all the paddocks are approximately 15.2 acres, subject to a measured survey.
