Property description

Location

The property is set in just over an acre of gardens and small woodland just 2 miles to the north of Norwich city centre. The pretty village of Old Catton retains much of its community and dates back to the Domesday Book. To the east of the house is 70 acres of listed parkland with buttercup meadow providing delightful parkland walks. Just to the north of the house is a deer park where Anna Sewell lived when she wrote her famous novel Black Beauty and there is good local schooling and a selection of shops within the village.

Norwich, the cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, has a vibrant arts and business community and is the regional centre for shopping. There is a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafes and schools in both the public and private sectors. Norwich International airport is approximately 2 miles to the north and there is a mainline railway station approximately 3 miles away with an electrified line to London Liverpool Street with the fastest journey time of 1 hour 50 minutes.

Description

The White House is an elegant Grade II Listed family home within the village of Old Catton on the edge of Norwich. It has beautifully restored gardens including a coach house and is situated opposite Old Catton Hall Park.

The original part of the house is believed to date from 1742 with a large rear addition built about 1850. The house retains many fine period features including oak panelling and a fine moulded ceiling in the games room. There is refurbished oak parquet flooring in the drawing room and games room and some of the oak mullion windows have fine cornicing.

Within recent years the property has undergone a lavish refurbishment and restoration programme with meticulous attention to detail. Major works include the replacing of the entire roof with new insulation, new boiler with twin pressurised tanks and a new central heating system including some under floor. Further works include new electrics, replacing some and refurbishing all of the windows, a new local handcrafted Eric Bates kitchen and utility together with new sanitary wear throughout.

These restoration works were complimented by a total redecoration programme which includes wallpapers by Mulberry, Zoffany Villers, Nina Campbell and Cole & Son.

Some of the more exquisite finishes include handcrafted 60mm granite worktops in the kitchen and utility to match, along with travertine flooring. The master bedroom suite which comprises 2 dressing rooms and bathrooms has a wall of handmade cherry wood wardrobes with 2 of the doors opening into one of the en-suite dressing rooms and bathrooms. The property has 3 main reception rooms, one of which is a magnificent drawing room looking out over the mature gardens at the rear of the house and a games room which could easily be used as a dining room with original oak panelling and fine plastered ceiling. We draw your attention to the floor plans for a full explanation as to how the accommodation is arranged. In addition, the property has a security alarm system with smoke detectors throughout and hard drive CCTV system with internal and external cameras.
   
Outside
The property can be approached by vehicle via 2 entrances, both with electric gates, leading to a large in and out driveway with ample parking for many vehicles. We would suggest for viewing the property that you access it via the entrance from George Hill where there is a security entrance pad to announce your arrival. A former coach house is situated to the south side which comprises double doors opening onto 1 large ground floor room with stairs leading up to a loft room above. This building has the benefit of planning permission to convert into a 2 bedroom annexe if required. In addition to this outbuilding there is a newly constructed 3 bay garage with slate roof and 3 remote electric powered doors with power and lighting. Leading out from the house on the southern side is a small courtyard area with built-in mains gas bbq unit, brick paved with low picket fencing dividing the courtyard from the drive and main gardens.

The beautiful mature gardens on the southeast side enjoy woodland and hedged boundaries providing seclusion and privacy. The house overlooks wide lawns with shrub borders and an attractive corner loggia which has been refurbished with a new pitched slate roof and partly glazed with the original flooring to enjoy the views of the garden. There is also a WC. The open side of the loggia is draped in a very old wisteria. Beyond the loggia is a further area used for storage with the old original curved high brick wall.

Along the side of the garden a gravel pathway leads via a 10 foot original wall and there are some fine mature shrubs and trees giving very much a feeling of a country garden within a small woodland area at the side. The land in all extends to 1.09 acres (est).
