Occupying an enviable position in the sought after village of Bishop’s Sutton, White Friars is an outstanding period detached village house of considerable character with later extensions
beautifully blended to the original building. The house has a huge amount of charm and historical associations and yet is unlisted which has many benefits. The fabulous kitchen/breakfast room forms the heart of this wonderful house with an amazing space for family and entertaining and views across the gardens to the side. It has a
yorkstone floor and 4 door AGA, with doorway through to the informal family room, perfect for day-to-day living, with French doors and views down to the river. The kitchen also opens
directly onto a sizeable utility room with gorgeous views of the garden and excellent storage space.
The dining room and drawing room both have excellent proportions and open to each other, they make a wonderful more formal space for entertaining larger numbers for social
occasions. The drawing room has a quite exceptional open working fireplace, a vaulted high ceiling and oak panelling. The study down the hall is a spacious room with a delightful outlook
to the gardens.
An enchanting bifurcating staircase leads from the reception hall to the first floor. The master suite has an impressive en-suite bathroom and two dressing rooms and benefits from good natural light and views of the gardens. There are two
further suites with their own bathrooms, one with a particularly delightful view down the rear gardens towards the river.
The second guest suite also has its own dressing room.
There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
