Description

The White House is a historic former farmhouse located at the heart of the popular village of Dymock, with its excellent range of local facilities. Grade II Listed, the original property was built in the early 17th century and is believed to be the birthplace of John Kyrle, ‘the Man of Ross’, an English philanthropist famed for his work in Ross on Wye. The property was later rebuilt in about 1770 and extended and remodelled in the late 1800s. Mellow brick elevations under pitched tiled roofs adorn the northerly elevation with a mixture of rendered and exposed brickwork on the southerly elevation. There are an array of timber casement windows and a handsome timber panelled front door with pediment architrave.

The ground floor accommodation is centred by an impressive reception hall which features period lime stone tiling as seen in Gloucester Cathedral, also worthy of note is an original spice cupboard. There is also access to the cellar and a guest cloakroom. The sitting room features an impressive fireplace, exposed beam work, original exposed elm floor and French doors leading to the garden. The dining room has a large inglenook fireplace including a wood burner with stone surround, prominent bay window and exposed wooden floorboards. The kitchen has been completely refurbished with bespoke new units, central island and the latest electric dual control Aga range cooker. There are also 2 large period bread ovens. Adjacent is a good sized breakfast/family room which features a painted original brick chimney breast, there is also access to the garden via a rear porch. The kitchen also provides access to an overly generous laundry/ utility room created from the former diary.
