Chislet House is a substantial former vicarage, generously proportioned and with a lovely southerly aspect. Set on high ground, the property is quietly located on the edge of a charming rural village, whilst also being close to Canterbury. An in and out driveway with electronic gates leads directly to the front door.

An enclosed entrance vestibule opens into a large, welcoming hallway, from where all the principal rooms are accessed. The drawing room is a well-proportioned double room with doors out to the rear terrace. Adjacent is the equally splendid dining room and beyond that the breakfast room and sun room. These three rooms all interconnect with sliding doors to allow the creation of a magnificent entertaining space. With the benefit of all the rooms facing south, they are flooded with light and all enjoy views over the extensive, lawned grounds.

Situated off the hall, adjacent to the drawing room is the study, and a short passageway opposite leads to the well-fitted kitchen. Beyond the kitchen is the utility/boot room, and beyond the breakfast room is the sun room with access to the wine cellar. The utility/boot room has independent access from the main house and, together with the secondary staircase and large bedroom above, could easily combine to create a self-contained annexe.

A wide staircase rises to the first floor landing. As with the ground floor, all the bedrooms have a bright southerly aspect. The largest bedroom
is at the end (and has independent access/
staircase from the main house) with an adjoining
bathroom. Three further double bedrooms at this level share two bathrooms, the larger of the two being very sizable. On the second floor there are two more bedrooms, one of which has a sauna en-suite, and two attic store rooms.

Chislet House is a rare home of distinction and offers an opportunity for the successful purchaser to acquire a substantial property with plenty of scope for creating a fabulous family home.

The coastal towns of Herne Bay (6 miles) and Whitstable (9 miles) are within easy reach, with extensive educational, shopping and leisure facilities being found in Canterbury. The well-regarded Chislet (CE) Primary School is close by.

Transport links are good, with the A28 and A299 connecting with the M2. Rail services to London are available from Herne Bay and Canterbury with Canterbury West offering a High Speed service to St Pancras in under an hour. The Eurotunnel and Ashford International (both within 30 miles) provide services to the Continent.

The gardens provide a high level of privacy. Set to one side of the drive is an attractive Kentish barn, currently used for garden implement storage. The driveway leads to a large courtyard area, where the brick built triple garage is situated. This has an adjoining workshop.

The main garden is to the rear of the house, and here swathes of lawn interspersed with trees provide a pastoral setting for the house. An area of orchard is situated to one side of the garden and has separate access from the lane. Within the garden is the swimming pool building.
