Throwley House is listed Grade II* and is an impressive Regency house set in park-like gardens and grounds of the highest quality. It is understood that the principal house here was rebuilt in the early 19th Century on the site of an older 17th or 18th Century house. The principal facades are of painted brick and mathematical tile beneath a slate roof and the typical symmetrical fenestration on the front elevation of the house features typical Georgian glazed sashes which are emphasised by the shutters and continuous veranda on the westerly and southern elevations.

The quality of the architecture continues internally, where the reception hall and the principal reception rooms are all of the very finest proportions and retain a wealth of period detail, including fireplaces and cornices of the highest quality. Large windows lead from the sitting room and drawing room to the gardens, and the dining room is of majestic proportions. The kitchen/breakfast room is of generous proportions with ample space for a table. The utility room and study are found above the cellars which include generous wine stores and store room.

The first floor landing is of elegant proportions and is lit from above by a large lantern. Six bedrooms and four bathrooms are found in the principal accommodation and there is access to a large roof terrace.

Secondary stairs return to the ground floor and beyond the kitchen on the ground floor is the swimming pool and conservatory, adjacent to which access can be gained to the extensive garages and tractor store which are found on the ground floor of the North Wing. Above is a large games room with a 7th bedroom with en suite bathroom. Also situated in the North Wing is a generously-proportioned staff flat, which is arranged with a large kitchen/ breakfast room on the ground floor and two bedrooms, a bathroom and a sitting room on the first floor

Throwley House is set on the outskirts of the popular village of Sheldwich, about 3 miles south of the market town of Faversham. Sheldwich village is centred around an attractive green which is home to a local cricket club and a well respected primary school. Faversham provides a range of shops and services for day-to-day needs.

Communications:
Faversham railway station provides services to Victoria, Cannon Street and, via the High Speed link, St Pancras all taking a little over one hour.

Ashford International, to the south, provides good fast access to London via the High Speed service, taking approximately 37 minutes.

Schools in the nearby area include:
The Kings School, Canterbury, St Edmund's School and the Simon Langton grammar schools.

Throwley House is set in gardens and park-like grounds of the highest quality. The house is well screened from the road by trees and its principal outlook is to the south and west across its own gardens. Beyond the gardens lie the paddocks which contain a large rubber manege and the paddocks are enclosed by post and rail fencing.
