Fairfield House is an architecturally rare property, as evidenced by its Grade I Listing. Believed to date from the 14th Century, the house is built in a style more frequently seen in the Weald of Kent and some significant features are still in evidence, including several dragon beams and Wainscott panelling in the dining room.
An ancient doorway, with panelled and studded front door, leads in to the hallway. To the left is the dining room, an interesting room with significant period features. From here a door leads into the drawing room, which is a lovely light room with windows on three aspects and magnificent beamed ceiling with two dragon beams. To the right of the hall is the study/snug, affectionately known as the Butlery, and this room also sports a dragon beam. The ground floor accommodation is completed by the kitchen/breakfast room, a cloakroom and a large utility room/ pantry. A useful cellar is accessed from the pantry.
There are two staircases to the first floor. The principal staircase rises from the pantry and leads to three bedrooms and the family bathroom. Accessed from a staircase rising from the drawing room, the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. From the landing, a door opens into the second bedroom.
Fairfield House is situated on the outskirts of the village of Eastry. The village offers a range of local facilities including shops, a pub, doctor and baker. The ancient medieval Cinque Port of Sandwich has a further range of specialist shopping and other local facilities, as does Canterbury. Both Sandwich and Canterbury have a good range of schools in both the independent and state sectors.
The local area is well served with transport links with the Eastry Bypass linking the Channel ports of Dover and Folkestone to the arterial routes of the A2 and A20 at Dover. These, in turn, link to the M2 and M20 giving access to the motorway network and Eurotunnel vehicle shuttle to the Continent; Ashford International (29 miles) offers regular Eurostar services to the Continent.
To the front of the house is a secluded garden with a tall conifer hedge giving good levels of privacy. There is a parking space to the front. A driveway to the side, shared with an adjoining cottage (not owned), leads to the garage and pedestrian access to the rear garden. The rear garden is simply arranged and laid to lawn with a wide terrace running the width of the house. Steps lead up to the lawn which is bounded by wide shrub beds.
