Over the last few years, the house has been modernised throughout to include a newly fitted kitchen, new bathroom and the windows have been replaced throughout.

Downstairs benefits from a large kitchen/breakfast room on one side and a large sitting room with wood burning stove on the other. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a newly fitted family bathroom.

Outside, the entrance to White Hart is under a very attractive covered entrance which opens out through to a shared courtyard with 2 other properties with the cottages on one side and 2 White Hart benefitting for a gravelled parking space opposite. There are three garages at the far end, the one in the middle belonging to 2 White Hart and beyond are the elevated gardens for all three cottages. A low-lying brick wall runs across the frontage, providing a part enclosed and part covered private front terrace, which opens into the house.

The gardens are split into two areas, with a shared pathway running through the middle, however, 2 White Hart benefits from being the last of the three meaning it is completely private with none of the other cottages needing to walk through to gain access to their own garden.
