The White House is well placed, in the heart of the attractive sought after north Northamptonshire village of Clipston. The village has a friendly, active community life and contains two churches, public house, riding school, pre-school nursery and the well regarded Clipston Primary School. Clipston is close to Naseby and shares parts of the historic battle sites of the 1645 Civil War which saw Cromwell’s ultimate defeat of King Charles 1st.

Facilities in the area are excellent. The town of Market Harborough is some four miles away and contains a comprehensive range of shops, commercial centre, theatre, leisure centre and golf club. Both the city of Leicester and the town of Northampton contain an extensive array of commercial and leisure amenities and thriving shopping centres. Water sports are available at Pitsford Reservoir and Rutland Water.

The A14 is approximately three miles to the south with the M1 and M6 to the west providing good motorway connections. A main line rail link between Market Harborough and London St Pancras International takes just over one hour, whilst, a connection from Kettering is available under the hour. International air travel is available at East Midlands Airport, Birmingham, Stansted and Luton.

The area offers many sought after preparatory schools, Maidwell and Spratton nearby, whilst secondary schools are available at Guilsborough, Rugby, Uppingham, Oundle, Leicester and Northampton.

The White house is a characterful detached house which takes full advantage of its history, the white finish exposing a timber and red brick frame, supporting a slate roof placed in the heart of the popular village of Clipston. This theme of retaining the buildings authenticity and charm is echoed inside with prominent inglenook fireplaces, rustic wooden doors, tiled flooring and further beams create a warm cottage feel whilst still accommodating modern comforts. Included in this: a new fully fitted kitchen, a sitting room, dining room, sun room, an entrance reception room, 4 bedrooms, 2 with en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom.

There are two entrances to the property if travelling by car one can enter through a five bar gate, a gravel driveway leads past the side of the house and a side door leads into the kitchen. Alternatively on foot, a main entrance is framed by an extended porch which again is wooden framed supporting a slate roof, leading into the main reception lobby. The reception room contains a distinctive fireplace, adorned with a bressumer beam then leads out into the south facing sun room and hall. Also on the ground floor there are the well-proportioned dining and sitting rooms which mirror each other in appearance, both displaying the house’s exposed timber. Leading through the hall lies a good sized kitchen, which is newly fitted and topped with a white Styrostone work surface. It includes a new range oven with hob and dishwasher . A light filled sun room on the south face of the house fully embraces its position with an impressive floor to ceiling glass window with French doors opening on to the terrace and private garden. In the sunroom a rich wooden spiral staircase takes you to a mezzanine landing. From which leads a principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, two double rooms, a four piece family bathroom and a further single bedroom which may also lend itself to being a good sized office/study. Each bedroom has fitted cupboards and there is further storage in a generous linen room.

Outside, the property has neat garden divided by the driveway, one side containing a modest vegetable patch, the other a terrace area with herbaceous borders. Included in the garden at the end of the drive there is a prominent timber, slate roofed, two bay garage and studio space.
