Sandwich is home to some magnificent properties, but rarely does the opportunity arise to create a brand new home in this ancient setting. Our clients, the well regarded MillChris Developments Ltd, were fortunate to acquire this large site adjacent to Mill Wall, a section of the historic town wall, and the Delf Stream, and have created Fifty Nine New Street to the very highest of standards. Using the finest materials, high levels of craftsmanship, and an imaginative design that makes the best of the generous garden, which is surrounded by a number of wonderful specimen trees including a 350 year old copper beech, they have created a home that will stand the test of time.

The house is set back from the road, and enjoys a large, walled garden. Behind the generous parking area at the front of the property the front door leads to a glazed entrance hall which opens to the vaulted sitting/dining room. This has a central fireplace, by J C Bordelet, the French fireplace company, with the chimney dramatically suspended above the fire place which rests amongst the wide gauge exposed engineered Douglas Fir floor which runs throughout most of the house. Bi-folding redwood doors take up much of the wall and open to the garden, providing wonderful vistas into the garden. Like the other windows which are also of redwood they are triple glazed. The kitchen (which opens through to the garden room) shares these views of the garden, and opens seamlessly from the sitting room. These two rooms enjoy a Buscott limestone floor and underfloor heating runs throughout the house. Fitted with a high quality German kitchen with volcanic stone veneer doors installed by LWK Kitchens, under quartz surfaces, this provides an indulgent space for catering and entertaining. Many of the quality appliances are by Siemens

A large study/bedroom 4 (with en-suite shower room) and very generous utility room (which also serves as a boot room) with American style fridge, freezer and dishwasher, fitted to the same high standard as the rest of the property, complete the ground floor accommodation.

The stairs rise in two easy flights to the first floor landing. This space is lit from above and has cast iron handrails. Bespoke, sleek black doors, lead to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom is vaulted to the full height of the roof, and the en-suite shower room is elegantly fitted. The family bathroom is luxuriously fitted, and the additional bedrooms are of spacious proportions. A combination of fittings from Roca Hudson Reed and Vado have been used to achieve the desired quality of presentation, and the luxurious Lusso Stone bathtub is of limestone and resin finish.

Antique lighting has been sourced for the property, which is wired for smart TV and media and has a fully up-to-date unvented heating and plumbing system.

Sandwich offers a variety of facilities, including well regarded schools and specialist shops. The coast is close by, as are a selection of golf courses. Westwood Cross provides additional shopping and leisure facilities and a full range of amenities can be found in Canterbury. There are excellent transport links. The local station has High Speed services to London St Pancras International, and the A256 joins the A2/M2 and M20/A20 at Dover. The area has good access to the Continent.

The walled garden has been laid to lawn, and is framed by shrubs and trees, allowing the incoming purchaser to design and create a garden to match the quality of the house. Much of the wall has been rebuilt under supervision of English Heritage and it provides a great degree of privacy.
