1/127 The White House
(formerly known as Vagg Farmhouse)

- II

Farmhouse, early C19 (possibly a rebuilding of that date), in the style of a
villa. Rendered with stone plinth (all colourwashed), with pyramidal Welsh
slated roof (now Turnerised) having wide bracketted soffites and central brick
chimney stack. 2-storeys, 3-bays on each face. The main (East) elevation has a
central 6 panelled door (of which the 2 upper panels are glazed) up four steps,
set in a plain opening but with flat hood on plain corbel brackets: there are
smallish 12-pane sash windows on both sides at both levels, the centre first
floor bay being blank. To the basement (barely visible above ground) stone
hollow chamfered mullioned windows suggesting the presence of earlier work. The
garden (South) elevation is similar, but has added 4-pane sashes on either side
of 2-ground floor windows, and a central doorcase (partly masked by a porch)
with pairs of slender non-classical columns supporting an open pediment. The
interior not seen. In the grounds of this house the Vagg Farm Granary (q.v.).
