About this property
White Cottage dates back to Victorian times and has evolved over centuries to become a delightful family home with well-balanced and flexible accommodation spread over two floors.
To the front of the property is an elegant front door which opens into a spacious hallway. However, in typical country style, visitors and friends are usually greeted at the back door of the house and welcomed into the warmth of the kitchen rather than the more formal front entrance. The arrangement of accommodation certainly has flexible family living at its very heart.
On the ground floor there are three reception rooms plus a home office and a large kitchen /breakfast room with conservatory style wing. There is also a utility room and downstairs cloakroom.
Overlooking the gardens both to the front and rear is an elegant bright drawing room with a working fireplace. French doors open out onto the rear garden making this room both a cosy place to sit during winter as well as the perfect spot for summer entertaining. There is a beautifully presented formal dining room with a fireplace to the front of the house which has been opened up onto the hallway. There is also a family room which is equally suited to a TV room or playroom. The kitchen / breakfast room is presented with delightful country style cabinets and granite worktops arranged around a large central island unit and Aga. Usefully the Aga can be switched off during the summer months and there is a hob and built-in oven for use during this time. There is also an integrated microwave and space for an American style fridge freezer.
Under the conservatory roof is a breakfast area with space enough to accommodate at least 8 to 10 people. French doors open out onto the large flagstone terrace which makes for an ideal spot to have breakfast or casual suppers. Overlooking the garden at the rear of the house is a study which is perfect for those working from home or simply a quiet place for the children to catch up on their homework. There is a guest cloakroom and fitted utility room with space for laundry machines, a useful Belfast sink and ample storage space.
On the first floor of the house there are four bedrooms and two
bathrooms. The principal suite consists of the bedroom, a dressing room with fitted cupboards and an en-suite bathroom with separate walk-in shower. There is also a charming balcony with space enough to sit down and enjoy early morning tea watching the sunrise. There are three further bedrooms which share a family bathroom and are perfect for guests and children.
Set behind high hedges and specimen trees the gardens are an absolute delight, displaying a riot of colour. A true testament to the owners’ hard work and imaginative planting, this oasis of calm wraps around the house on three sides making for both the perfect refuge for grown-ups and their guests, and an area for kids to play.
Separate from the house is a detached double garage and stable block with ample storage space. This has the potential to be converted to provide additional accommodation or home-working space subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
Behind gates located at the side of the house leading to the garage is an extensive graveled driveway providing parking for several cars.

Nestled in the picturesque hamlet of East End Green is White Cottage, a welcoming four-bedroom family home set in glorious gardens.
Located in a peaceful rural setting, this property is less than an hour’s commute to Central London, and within easy reach of the major local towns and amenities of Hertford, Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City.
This charming property is located close to several excellent schools including Stormont, Lochinver House, Queenswood, Haileybury and Dame Alice Owens.
East End Green is known locally as one of The Five Greens, a series of hamlets with a rich history traceable as far back as the Domesday Book, each of which consists of houses surrounded by protected Village Greens.
The area is ideal for outdoor lovers with ample opportunities for walks from just outside the property itself and the attractions of Panshanger Park and Hatfield House just a short drive away. Bike riding and horse riding are
also both popular in the area and there are several excellent local golf courses to choose from.
Although distinctly rural in feel, the property is minutes from the A414, which feeds into the major local roads network, including the M25 and A1M. Local shops are all within 6 miles, including a Tesco Superstore and retail park, Waitrose, John Lewis and Marks and Spencer. Both Luton and Stansted airports are also within reach.
