Staple House, a Grade II listed property was built, we understand, during the reign of Queen Anne in the early 1700's. It was originally a farm house forming part of a hop and fruit farm, since then it has also been a bed and breakfast. This large spacious property offers a variety of uses subject to the necessary planning consents both commercially or residential.

There are a number of attractive features including beamed ceilings and walls, stripped doors and floors, natural brick walls and feature fireplaces to name but a few. To the ground floor there is a large open plan L shaped lounge, study area, family room, a separate formal dining room, kitchen and access to a two-room cellar. There is also the original ladies and gents toilet/annex building from the properties pub days (formerly The Three Tuns public House) which could be converted to extra accommodation subject to planning consents. To the first floor there are five bedrooms, three of which have en-suites. There is also a separate annex accommodation which boasts a bedroom, kitchen and cloakroom with stairs to the second floor having a lounge and two further bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms.

Outside there is off street parking for numerous cars, a small courtyard and a paved area to the rear with a good sized, mainly lawned garden to the side.

Staple is a picturesque village with its own village hall, church and public house whilst further amenities are found in the nearby villages of Wingham and Ash. The Cathedral City of Canterbury is approximately 9 miles away where you will find a wide variety of shopping, dining, cultural and educational facilities as well as a high-speed rail service to London St Pancras.

The Vendor's View - I was first attracted to the characterful atmosphere of this wonderful historic property, dating back to 1702 with all of its original features, such as the exposed brickwork and beams. It has a warm, country house feel, and is very welcoming.

Without doubt, my favourite part of the property is the open-plan living area downstairs, being such a large flexible space, you can really lay it out to suit whatever purpose you need it for. It’s equally lovely to cosy up in front of the television, or to entertain family and friends, and I’ve held many parties and gatherings in this space over the years.

The location of this property offers the best of all worlds in my opinion, set in a countryside village, just 5 minutes from Sandwich and 10 minutes from the city of Canterbury in the other direction. You have all the convenience of living near a city and yet you’re able to enjoy the tranquillity of a countryside position, with lovely seaside facilities nearby.

The way that the property is set up with separate annexes and work areas means that it is spacious enough to suit a whole variety of uses, and while it’s a perfect family home, it could also be used as somewhere to work from home, a B&B etc. We have really appreciated being able to accommodate multiple generations here, enjoying each others company, but also all able to have our own private space.
I will most certainly miss the size, space and character of this unique property that has been our home for the past 13 years.
