The White House is a beautiful late Regency double fronted house situated on the ever popular Common in the heart of Cranleigh Village. The property has been refurbished in recent years by the current owner and is stylishly presented throughout with wonderful light on both levels. At the rear is a fabulous garden backing onto Cranleigh School playing fields measuring over 250ft in length.


The White House is set back from Cranleigh High Street on The
Common, a sought-after address within the Village. Cranleigh is known as England's largest village and offers extensive facilities often found in a small market town. Within Cranleigh itself are many local independent shops and supermarkets, including an M&S food hall. Cranleigh Arts Centre hosts regular films, theatre, bands, comedy and children's shows.

The highly regarded fee paying Cranleigh School (boys and girls 7-18) is located close to The White House. The Village also has several other primary and secondary schools.

The Surrey Hills are located just to the north and is an area of
outstanding natural beauty, well known for its rural feel and fabulous countryside. The area is perfect for walking, riding and cycling with several pretty villages nearby. The larger county town of Guildford is around 9 miles away and has extensive shopping facilities with a House of Fraser department store. Guildford mainline station has a fast and regular link to central London (37 minutes).


The White House is a wonderful double fronted late Regency house which has been carefully refurbished by the current owners. Upon entering via a central hall, the drawing room offers a double aspect to the front and rear with a door onto the garden and an attractive gas fireplace with marble surround. Opposite, is a sitting room to the front which is open to a dining room and overlooks the front driveway. A door leads through to a fabulous family kitchen with a beautiful Smallbone kitchen with a central island and tiled floor. This room is bathed in light being south facing to the front and with a large window to the rear.
From the kitchen, doors lead through to a cleverly designed utility area with built in pantry and guest WC. Access is also provided onto the garden from both the kitchen and utility area. Also on the ground floor is a useful study off the hall. Stairs lead up to the first floor with the master bedroom suite on the right-hand side of the property. The suite consists of a fabulous bedroom with two large sash windows to the front and a large sash window to the side, a spacious en suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe. Accessed via the fifth bedroom, which could also be used as a dressing room if needed. To the front are two similar sized double bedrooms overlooking The Common. There is a modern family bath/shower room at the top of the staircase used by both bedrooms. A door leads off the hallway and along a private corridor to a guest bedroom suite which offers double aspect to the front and rear with an en suite shower room and built in wardrobes.

Outside, the rear garden is extensive and larger than expected. Measuring around 250ft in length the landscaped garden is separated into areas of level lawn, a fruit orchard, herbaceous borders and beautiful trees, a utility area with potting shed and workshop and a children's play area at the very end of the garden. Next to the house is a timber framed summerhouse with built in log fire which can be used for a variety of purposes.

Attached to the house is a garage with an office to the rear. This office was previously connected to the master bedroom above via a secondary staircase and could be reinstated if required. Further parking is provided on the front carriage driveway.

The White House is installed with a uniquely efficient heating and hot water system called FlowSmart. FlowSmart comprises an 'A' rated Alpha condensing combination gas boiler that includes Zenex's patented GasSaver and Superflow technologies. The installation also includes a pumped, secondary circuit, that ensures hot water is quickly available to all draw-off points. The FlowSmart system was installed in August 2014 and has been annually serviced by a local plumbing company called CJB and is under manufacturer's warranty until August 2019.
