The White House is a substantial detached family home located in the popular village of Kenn. The house maintains many period features including flag stone floors, shutters, sash windows and stone inglenook fireplaces. Although in need of some minor cosmetic improvements, which is considered in the price, the property has the potential to create a fantastic family home. With some reconfiguration, we believe the property could benefit from an annexe, ideal for a dependent relative, or even a source of letting income.
The ground floor comprises three spacious reception rooms; a sitting room (which could be reshuffled to provide a kitchen overlooking the gardens), living room and dining room, together with a large kitchen/breakfast room and separate utility; conservatory style rear porch and downstairs cloak room. Upstairs are six bedrooms, the master having its own suite comprising bathroom with shower cubicle, separate cloakroom and large bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a dual aspect over the garden. A back staircase leads down to the kitchen.
Outside the gardens are a wonderful feature of the property with large lawns, mature trees and established shrub borders, as well as a wildlife garden with pond and mature willow tree. There are plenty of storage sheds to the rear of the house with a log store and boiler room.
Kenn is a popular village close to the A38 dual carriageway and thus providing excellent road links to Plymouth and Exeter. The village has a beautiful parish church, a village stores and a thriving traditional local pub. Kenn has a well regarded local primary school and award winning pre school, whilst the cathedral city of Exeter some 6 miles away offers some excellent private schools.
From the A38 dual carriageway from Exeter turn left as sign posted to Kenn and Kennford. Follow the road past the Shell petrol station, and at the top of the hill before the fly over turn left as sign posted to Kenn and Kennford. Follow this country lane down the hill and The White House is the first property on the left as you enter the village. We would suggest parking by the timber double gates at the bottom of the garden.

From the village road a drive leads to timber double gates which then lead through to a good sized parking area with OFF STREET PARKING for several vehicles. A wildlife garden is found beyond the parking area with a large pond stocked with various reeds and a willow tree providing shade. There are mature trees and various fruit trees as well as a composting area.
A path leads to the front garden which is of good proportions with well stocked flower and shrub beds, a timber summerhouse provides storage for gardening tools. To the side of the property is a secluded al fresco dining area with a door into the kitchen/breakfast room, whilst to the rear are three storage sheds, one being a log store, and one housing the oil boiler. The gardens form a true feature of the property and need to be seen to be appreciated.
