Property description

Entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom. Three bedrooms and bathroom. 40' cartlodge with lean-to. Gardens and grounds extending to nearly half an acre. 

Location White House is located within the small hamlet of Owls Green, between the villages of Dennington to the south and Laxfield to the north-east. Dennington benefits from a primary school and a popular public house, The Dennington Queen , which is well known for its excellent food. Laxfield also offers a primary school, a Co-op village store/post office, hardware store/garage and two public houses, including the Kings Head, known locally as the 'Low House'.

The historic town of Framlingham lies about 6 miles to the south where there is further schooling in both the state and private sectors as well as an excellent range of shops and restaurants. The Heritage Coast, with the popular centres of Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich, is about 15 miles away. Diss, with mainline Inter City rail services to London's Liverpool Street Station, lies about 14 miles to the west. The County town of Ipswich lies about 25 miles to the south. 

Description White House comprises a charming period cottage that occupies a delightful rural location within the hamlet of Owls Green. A former farmworker's cottage that has been let for many years, White House has had some minor improvement works undertaken in the past including the replacement of the windows for double glazed alternatives, but the property now warrants complete renovation and refurbishment throughout. Given the size of the plot, White House also lends itself itself to be extended to create a much larger dwelling, subject to the necessary consents.

Outside the gardens and grounds extend to nearly half an acre in all and comprise areas laid to grass, formal vegetable patches and well stocked borders. There is also a large pond. To the west of the property is the cartlodge, together with a parking area. This building offers tremendous scope for alternative uses, but again subject to the necessary consents.
