Set in the heart of the hamlet of Dargate, Plantation House is a handsome 19th century property nestled in pretty, wooded countryside inland from the Swale estuary.

The accommodation radiates off a central hall approached via an entrance porch. The sitting room and dining room sit to the back of the house overlooking the gardens towards the paddocks. Both are bright rooms with large sash windows and open fireplaces. Beyond the dining room is a study/garden room with glazed doors leading to a courtyard at the side. A fantastic feature of the house is the generous kitchen/family room which forms the hub of the house and provides a wonderful everyday living space. Arranged to one end, the kitchen cleverly incorporates an old well into its layout; the remainder of the room has ample space for a dining table as well as a seating area, all set in front of a large fireplace, which houses a wood-burning stove.

The master bedroom is a bright room with two sash windows and fitted cupboards across one wall. A second good sized bedroom is adjacent and bedroom three is found off the half landing. There is a family bathroom. A guest bedroom with a neatly fitted shower room and French doors to a sunken terrace is found at a slightly lower level.

Dargate is a charming and peaceful hamlet set amidst a beautiful area of countryside between the well serviced towns of Faversham, Canterbury and Whitstable. Together they offer a comprehensive range of leisure, shopping, cultural and educational facilities. In Dargate itself is The Dove, a well-regarded public house.

There are excellent road and rail communications in the area. The A299 (1 mile) provides fast access to the M2. Trains run from Faversham to London Victoria in around 80 minutes and High Speed services to London St Pancras are available from Faversham (65 minutes), Canterbury West (54 minutes) and Ebbsfleet International (18 minutes).

Plantation House sits well in its grounds giving a wonderful level of protection and privacy. The house is approached via an electric five bar gate leading to a drive which passes the house and arrives at a good sized parking area. Set off the drive are a useful outbuilding and stable block.

The gardens extend to the front and back of the house and are laid to large expanses of lawn. Beyond the garden to the south are two paddocks. Plantation House has a lovely outlook over the neighbouring countryside which rises to woodland in the distance. A fabulous breeze hut is well situated to enjoy the surroundings.
