The White House is a rarely available Grade II Listed village house, being conveniently yet rurally located in Sheldwich Lees. The village provides a peaceful setting, with a strong community, surrounded by beautiful countryside yet being exceptionally well placed for access to roads and train links. Whilst The White House is at the heart of the village, its extensive gardens afford great privacy. The house has been comprehensively refurbished and remodelled to create a stunning home with extremely comfortable, well-appointed accommodation, whilst retaining all the character and charm of a Listed property.

Approached from a drive to the side of the house, a door gives day-to-day access into a hallway with a cloakroom set off it. A wood-burning stove to one end is double sided, and wide openings lead to both the kitchen and sitting room which combine to provide a wonderful living space. Thoughtfully extended by the current owners, the kitchen is a bright room with French doors open to the garden. The pretty sitting room is double aspect and a tiled floor flows throughout the space.

Across the hall is an elegant double aspect drawing room. This very calm and light room is arranged around a brick fireplace with an open fire. Across a lobby, into which the front doors opens, is a dining room with a door returning to the kitchen. The downstairs accommodation combines well for entertaining, with the kitchen and adjacent sitting room at the heart of the house for everyday living. A good sized cellar provides a useful utility room.

Stairs rise to a lovely, large landing. The master bedroom to the back of the house has extensive fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. This is cleverly designed to be Jack and Jill with the landing for greater flexibility. Two further bedrooms sit to the front of the house one of which is en-suite. All of the bedrooms are well off for cupboards and wardrobe space

A striking glass link joins the house to an excellent fourth bedroom providing a bright and airy guest suite with an open plan bedroom and study space on the first floor and a shower room on the ground floor. The link itself provides a peaceful garden room in which to sit as if ‘outside’, and at the same time it effortlessly connects the two traditionally styled buildings.

The White House is situated in the delightful village of Sheldwich Lees, with its Ofsted “Outstanding” primary school, cricket ground, active village hall and church. There is easy access to the M2 (Junction 6) and to Ebbsfleet International, which offers High Speed trains to London St Pancras as well as Eurostar services; the Eurostar can also be accessed via Ashford International.

Faversham with its medieval market square has a very good grammar school and a mainline railway station providing commuter services to London. The cathedral city of Canterbury provides for cultural interests, and offers an excellent shopping centre and highly regarded schools, colleges and two universities.

The gardens of The White House are as immaculately laid out as the house itself. The house is set well back behind a brick wall with a path leading to the front door. A gravel drive is approached via a five-bar gate leading to plenty of parking to the front of the garage. Two adjacent buildings provide storage.

A terrace to side of the house is flanked by flower borders and gives way to a large lawn. A path leads to a vegetable garden and greenhouse, overlooked by a summerhouse to one corner. A further expanse of lawn extends behind the house where there is a pond and a further summerhouse. Shrub and flowerbeds provide colour and structure. A well maintained tennis court sits neatly to one corner of the garden, well screened from the house.
