Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An historic Grade II listed home for sale close to New Romney High Street.

A beautiful and gracious home with links going back to 1610 in a quiet location yet within walking distance of New Romney's characterful and convenient high street, a short drive from the sea and Littlestone Golf Course and the open spaces of Romney Marsh.

In the early 17th century the house was put in trust by Jonas Adams, one of the Governors of the area and originally acted as a schoolroom for a small number of children. A later owner of the house sold it along with four almshouses at the other end of New Romney and the proceeds went towards establishing Southland School. The house is listed for its special architectural and historic interest.

There is a pleasant and convenient flow to the rooms with flexible and spacious accommodation.

The Reception Hall has solid wood parquet flooring and a huge original inglenook fireplace. The former schoolroom now forms a spacious and light filled Dining Room. Adjacent to the Dining Room is the large Kitchen with bespoke fitted units, range cooker, walk in pantry. There are French doors from the Kitchen to a York stone paved sitting and eating area. There is a downstairs cloakroom and boiler room, which also houses the domestic consumer electrical unit. The Living Room is filled with light from the sash windows, which still have their original shutters. Both the sash windows and the shutters have been fully restored. Solid wooden floor. Steps down to a Study. French doors lead to the sunny garden.

A solid oak staircase leads to the First Floor with three good-sized bedrooms and a Family Bathroom with walk-in shower.

A semi open staircase leads to the characterful and recently restored room in the eaves of the house.

Above the Garage is a converted space currently made up of two rooms, which could be used as a Home Office, Guest Suite, Studio or Gym. There is a private sunny roof terrace. Outside loo.

The Governors House is available with no onward chain.
