Full description

To really appreciate everything this stunning period family home has to offer you need to cross the threshold. Once through the lovely front door into the porch with its charming stained glass windows and into the welcoming entrance hall you can begin to feel that, while the property has the convenience of being on the village high street, it is indeed an oasis of peace and tranquility. It includes a separate annex that was the village forge and was constructed around the same time as the original cottage that was believed to have been built in the 1700s. A large extension was added in Victorian times so the house has plenty of character features with old fireplaces, sash windows, high ceilings, ornamental coving, high skirting boards, pine flooring and an impressive Victorian staircase with a fascinating double arch access. There is a very elegant drawing room with a cast iron fireplace and a gas effect fire and opposite is a living room that could be a dining room where you can seat at least a dozen people for more formal entertaining. In the original part of the house there is a cosy lounge that could always be used as a study. It has a gorgeous inglenook style brick backed real fire and french doors to the garden, access to the back stairs as well as to a large utility room that also has a door to the garden. A large morning room with fitted cupboards leads through to the superb contemporary light and bright kitchen/breakfast room that has been created from an attached barn and includes exposed beams and wood flooring. It has a selection of modern units, a double butler's sink, a large island breakfast bar, a range cooker and dishwasher and plenty of room for a sizeable dining table and chairs. Up the main staircase you will find an attractive landing leading to the family bathroom with its stand alone bath and triple sized shower and three double bedrooms. These include the light and bright master with its bay window, fitted cupboards and large en suite shower room, a 2nd bedroom with double aspect windows including another bay and a lovely bedroom leading to a good sized dressing room/additional bedroom and through to an en suite shower room, so makes an ideal teenager's suite where they can entertain friends. In the original part of the house and also accessed via the back staircase are two further double bedrooms serviced by a newly installed shower room while in the basement there is a very useful games room and wine store.

What the Owner says:


“We have loved living here for the past 18 years and renovating the whole property over the years has been a labour of love. However with the children growing up we feel it is now time to downsize. At the same time we absolutely love the location and are currently building a separate house on adjacent land. Our plan is to move into the new house once it is completed however if a potential buyer would like both properties we are prepared to sell the new house as well.
Eastry is a delightful and friendly place to live. It includes a convenience store, two hairdressers and a beauty therapy centre as well as a pharmacy and post office. The village hall is regularly used by many local organisations, including the local theatre company, the Horticultural Society and health and fitness classes. You can enjoy a drink or a meal at the delightful Five Bells country pub and there is a local primary school as well as the excellent Northbourne prep school nearby while for older children the St Roger Manwood Grammar School in Sandwich is very well respected and there are a number of very good private and state secondary schools in Canterbury, Dover and Thanet. It is easy to get to the historic Cinque Port town of Sandwich with its vast array of fascinating medieval properties, individual shops, restaurants and bars".
