Property Description

Full description

Description
With immediate grounds of 0.75 acres and private mature woodland of 2.5 acres, White Croft is an extremely well proportioned mature detached family home. It has design features typical of the 'Art-Deco' period which is when the property was originally constructed. More recently it has since benefitted from a substantial double storey extension and attic conversion. It offers 5 main bedrooms, plus a box-room, which has been used as a single bedroom (6). The master bedroom has its own en-suite shower room with wc and the family bedrooms are served by a large fully tiled house bathroom. There are two lovely reception rooms, both offering period fireplaces with open fires. The kitchen is particularly spacious. It offers plenty of room for breakfast /dining facilities. It is well fitted and incorporates a range of integral appliances. There is also a generous utility/boot room with connections for laundry equipment. The property is double glazed and a new Potterton Gold electric central heating system is installed.

Location
Within its mature tree-lined boundaries White Croft enjoys considerable privacy yet it is within only 150 yards walking distance of Pleasington Priory and the main part of the village. To the north side of the property there are approximately 2.5 acres of natural woodland which is a real haven for local wildlife. Deer are regularly seen foraging amongst the trees. Pleasington is an ideal residential location. The immediate area is distinctly 'semi-rural' yet within 15 -20 minutes you can access a choice of motorways [M65, M61 & M6] which promote excellent commuting opportunities across the region. Within the village there are two excellent local pubs [both with 'real ales' and crown bowling greens] and the regionally renowned Pleasington Golf Club, where new members are always welcomed.

A space heater is fitted. It makes a super additional bedroom (6) or perhaps a studio or an office for a home based operator.

Outside
Whitecroft occupies an elevated position above Sandy Lane. Its driveway is best approached from the Priory side. At the top of the driveway there is plenty of parking space for family/visitor vehicles. There is also a substantial detached double garage with an electronic vehicle entry door and a side personal access door. This garage is also the perfect 'man cave' and designed for any car/motorcycle enthusiast wanting a proper workshop and hobby amenity. It even has an inspection pit.

The garden becomes level across the front of the house and to the south side is a walled patio area which can be directly accessed via the French windows from the lounge. There are two externally accessed general storage areas within the rear extension.

The rear garden is terraced and mainly grassed. Towards the top is a level area affectionately called the 'football pitch' by the present vendors family. Many happy hours have been enjoyed playing up here.

Woodland
A few years ago the owners had the opportunity to acquire the adjoining section of mature woodland, which amounts to approximately 2.5 acres or thereabouts. Not only has this area been the ultimate natural playground for growing children it is a wonderful unspoilt green space which is a real haven for local bird and wildlife. The deer feel so safe they can regularly be seen throughout the day. How special is that?!
