Vicarage Farm has been the subject of a major restoration and modernisation programme over the past few years. Purchased by the current owners in a derelict state, the house has been transformed into a wonderful country home full of character, light and appeal. Set in a little known and unspoilt part of East Kent where gently undulating hills meet the sea, the house stands in an elevated position and enjoys unexpected and distant rural views over adjoining countryside towards the coast.

Believed to have been built around 1870, the house is set at right angles to a quiet country lane and approached over gravelled drive. A deep, wide porch leads in to the welcoming hallway. A lovely sunny double aspect dining room sits to the left and adjacent is the magnificent and splendidly proportioned sitting room. A lovely stone fireplace with inset wood-burning stove is a focal point at one end, whilst the opposite end is dominated by a low, wide window which gives delightful views over the garden and fields beyond.

The kitchen is equally well proportioned and beautifully styled; it is fitted with a range of custom made furniture and has enough space for a large dining table and chairs. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a generous study/fourth bedroom and a cloakroom. A door leads down to a useful two room dry cellar.

A wide staircase leads up to a spacious landing. Here there are three further bedrooms. The two bedrooms at the back have lovely views over the garden and the master bedroom has double doors onto a balcony. All three bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. The well fitted family bathroom and separate WC adjoin the master bedroom.

West Langdon is one of the smallest and least changed villages in the county, with houses surrounding the village green and set amongst rolling countryside. Nearby Whitfield offers a range of day-to-day amenities with Sandwich, Canterbury and Dover offering a broad range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities.

The A2 at Whitfield links in to the wider motorway network, and High Speed trains reach London St Pancras from Ashford International in 37 minutes. The area has good access to the Continent.

The gardens and the outbuildings have similarly been beautifully restored. There is a detached garage and a lovely old fashioned lean-to greenhouse faces on to the main lawn at the rear of the house.

The grounds have been sympathetically landscaped to take full advantage of the semi-wooded location. The area immediately to the north of the house has been designed as a “walled potager” style of garden with raised beds and a large fish/lily pond to one side. To the rear of the house is a level lawn bounded by clipped box hedging. The remaining garden is lightly wooded with informal pathways cut through to create a pleasant walk.
