Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Manor House is a beautiful detached period residence, with lovely sash windows set within a red brick façade and beneath a Kent peg tiled roof. The property sits comfortably within a generous plot on the fringes of the exclusive Orchard Gate development.

The property’s interior is somewhat dilapidated now and consequently Manor House presents an ideal opportunity as a complete renovation project, particularly in view of the property’s unlisted status.

On the ground floor there are currently two reception rooms, both with fireplaces, one with a dual aspect and the other with its original fitted storage cupboards.

To what was originally the rear of the house (but would most likely become the front of the house upon redevelopment) are three rooms which could be rearranged as a large kitchen/breakfast room and utility room (subject to the necessary consents).

On the first floor there are three very well proportioned double bedrooms and a family bathroom (with a newly installed combination boiler for the central heating).

However, in addition to the main house there is a further two storey section which currently can only be accessed externally. This has a lovely old brick floor and even the original copper and bread oven. Potentially, this section could be knocked through and incorporated into the main house adding a fourth bedroom and additional living space (subject to necessary consents).

Outside Manor House is approached via a timber five bar gate which opens onto a large parking area which (once properly surfaced) would provide parking for numerous vehicles and a newly constructed cart barn garage. There is an area to the front of the house which measures approx. 40ft x 17ft and is currently paved with an area of exposed soil which, once laid to lawn would make a lovely front garden.

A side gate leads to the rear garden which measures approx. 55ft x 50ft and is currently a mix of exposed soil and hardstanding, with a mature tree and two newly planted trees. The garden is fenced to two sides, with hedging to the third and a pedestrian gate which opens onto Staplestreet Road.


Manor House is situated on the edge of the exclusive Orchard Gate development with a pedestrian access onto Staplestreet Road. This pleasant country lane overlooks fruit orchards and is surrounded by some lovely farmland and countryside including the nearby Mount Ephraim Gardens.

The village of Dunkirk is approximately three miles east of Faversham and five miles west of Canterbury and is situated next to Blean Woods which have been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and cover more than eleven square miles. Dunkirk has a new village hall, garden centre, farm shop and the Red Lion public house. Its neighbouring village of Boughton-under-Blean has a long main
street with a post office, village store, well regarded primary school, doctor’s surgery and other independent traders. The villages are very closely linked and have a real sense of community.

The nearby towns of Faversham and Canterbury offer a wide selection of shops both high street and independent, restaurants, leisure facilities and excellent education amenities including both State grammar and private schools.

Dunkirk is close to the A2 which gives easy access to the motorway network. The nearest railway stations are at Canterbury and Faversham, these offer fast services to both London and the coast. There is also a regular bus service from Dunkirk to Canterbury, Faversham and other local villages.
