Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally built in the early 19th century, Wingrove House is an unusual and impressive 6/7 bedroom Grade II listed residence in Church Street, Walmer. With its plethora of multi-pane sash windows, period front door and arched skylight you immediately feel the ambience of its Georgian history. Once across the threshold you can appreciate the well-proportioned rooms that are full of character features such as cast iron fireplaces, original shutters, coved ceilings, central beams and panelled doors providing a wonderful basis for the creation of a superb family home.

Spread over three floors as well as a basement covering the entire footprint of the property, there is plenty of space for a growing family. Alternatively, it could be an excellent opportunity for someone looking to develop a bed & breakfast business or a small guest house. There is a lovely large lounge area with two fireplaces and a formal dining area adjacent to the fitted kitchen/breakfast room, with direct access to the walled garden and stairs to the first floor as well as to the basement.

The first floor includes a vast landing area that makes an excellent study space and leads to two large double bedrooms with one en suite and a family bathroom accessible via a fascinating pair of curved doors. One of the these rooms is currently being used as a first-floor sitting room to take advantage of the views and is open to bedroom 5 while, on the second floor, there are four bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside, there is a large garden and parking for two or three vehicles, in addition to a garage.

What the Owner says:


Now our daughter has left home we feel it is time to downsize. The accommodation is very flexible and would suit a variety of requirements. For instance, the accommodation on the top floor could be upgraded to provide three en suite bedrooms, while the large basement might be converted to a kitchen/dining room and living room/games room or a suite of offices for anyone wanting to run a business from home. Church Street is a delightful street in Upper Walmer and we have some very welcoming and friendly neighbours who have all lived in the street for many years. The location has always been a big plus as we love to be near both the coast and the countryside. At the same time we are only about 20 minutes from Canterbury and Sandwich and not far from the lovely town of Deal with its individual shops, weekly market and restaurants. Dover and Folkestone are easily accessible for trips to the Continent and we can be in St. Pancras in just over an hour and a half from Walmer main-line station.
