For those desiring a large property project, the Grade II-listed White Horse pub in Hitcham may fit the bill.

Dating back to the 16th century, the property has planning permission for conversion to residential use and would make a large family home or a bed and breakfast, or could continue to be run as a public house.

In addition there are three income-generating B&B cottages, built in 2011.

Fine & Country is holding an open house tomorrow, June 27 for potential buyers to get a closer look.

In the main building, the entrance hall leads into the dining room, currently the main dining area and lounge bar. Open studwork leads to a second dining room with brick fireplace.

A reception room currently used as the main bar has stairs leading down to the cellar/stock room.

A rear hall leads to the gents WC, while the ladies WC is accessed from the entrance hall.

The kitchen is currently fitted as a professional kitchen, and there is access to a kitchenette/store from a rear hall.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a sitting room for the pub, and a family bathroom with roll top claw foot bath and separate shower.

There is a fifth bedroom on the second floor.

The three self-contained cottages, built in a block, all have ensuite shower rooms. One is furnished as a single unit, one as a twin and one as a double.

Subject to relevant permissions, the cottages could be converted into an annexe.

Outside, there is a timber framed freezer store, a small store and a garage.

A strip of land approximately 10ft wide in front of the pub is owned by the property, but the ‘layby’ where most customers park is not.
