Owners comment

"White Oaks has been a wonderful home for our growing family, centred around the spacious open plan living areas. The sunny garden merges with the house in summer, great for hosting barbecues, whilst the log burning stove in the kitchen and dining room makes it cosy and welcoming in winter. We have enjoyed walking and cycling in the New Forest from the house and have made some great friends in the area."


The covered entrance with timber front door opens into the entrance hall with slate flooring, a useful storage cupboard and cloakroom with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier. A glass panelled internal door opens into the reception hall which boasts French doors to the side garden, an open feature staircase to the first floor with handy understairs storage cupboard, and double doors through to the sitting room. The fitted modern kitchen enjoys an outlook to the front aspect and boasts cream gloss fronted base units with a solid oak work surface. A dishwasher is integrated within the units and space is available for a range style oven with a stainless steel extractor hood over. With light emanating from two velux windows in the vaulted ceiling, French doors to the rear garden and an attractive log burner, this impressive dining area creates a wonderfully social open living space. The sitting room is generously proportioned and benefits from a gas fired log effect stove and sliding patio doors to the centrally heated conservatory with access to the enclosed rear garden.

The tiered open staircase leads to the galleried landing and serves the three bedrooms with the master situated at the rear of the property affording ample space for free standing wardrobes and has attractive wooden window shutters.
