Full descriptionA rare opportunity to own a piece of History as well as an impressive period home situated within the heart of the market town of Sandwich and just yards away from a wealth of local amenities.
'Harfleet House' is steeped in history and dates back to circa 1250. Originally a wealthy merchants house and now a Grade II listed dwelling boasting an array of period features and oozing character.
This superb example of a medieval hall house is amongst the best surviving merchant houses in the whole of England offering impressive and practical accommodation over three floors plus an under croft (Stone cellar) which dates back to Norman times.
Set within Strand Street in the historic Cinque port of Sandwich which has the longest row of timber framed houses in Europe and claims to be 'the completest medieval town in England', the property has been modernised internally by its present owners, whilst retaining many original features, including fine timber framing and exposed beams throughout, with an amazing 'King Post', vaulted ceiling and some charmingly uneven floors.
'Harfleet House' offers a great versatility in terms of the configuration of rooms and is currently used as a five bedroom home with plenty of options and possibilities to give the new owner.
In the past few years the current owners have enjoyed being hosts and the property has been a successful bed & breakfast which can be lucrative and provides an extra income.
There is some historical information about the medieval market town of Sandwich and a further selection of photographs on the 'Harfleet House' website which the owners had used for their B&B business, take a look at www.harfleethouse.co.uk
