About 1.25 acres

Homestall House is built of mellow brick under a clay tiled roof. The principal elevation is in the early 19th century neo-classical style, with a panelled front door with an open modillioned pediment on a frieze with sheaths of corn, and with attached Doric columns.

The spacious reception hall with pine floor boards gives access to the three cellar chambers. The sitting and dining rooms sit either side, both with elegant fireplaces, high ceilings and flooded with light from the tripartite sash windows. The kitchen has an Aga, slate floor tiles, and a range of pine cabinets, and opens to the family and breakfast area, with wood-burning stove.

The drawing room is in the older part of the house, with some lovely exposed timbers and an inglenook fireplace. An office, large utility room and shower room complete the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor is reached by front and back staircases, and has seven double bedrooms in total with two bathrooms. The mixed age of the house gives a varying character to the bedrooms, and there are fine views over the garden from many.

Homestall House is located in Goodnestone, a small hamlet situated between Faversham and Whitstable, close to the coast and Faversham creek. Whitstable is a charming seaside town with a good range of facilities; Canterbury is easily accessible and provides a full range of services.

There are excellent road and rail communications in the area with the M2 just 2 miles away. Trains from Faversham to London Victoria take approximately 70 minutes and to St. Pancras via the High Speed link just 65 minutes.

Ashford International station and The Channel Tunnel terminal at Folkestone offer regular services to the Continent.

The house is approached over a shingle drive bordered by lawns, with a parking and turning area at the front and spur drive to the side leading to the garage. This substantial building (18m x 15m approx. external at ground floor level) has stairs to a first floor room with roof lights.

The principal gardens are at the rear, with a brick paved terrace leading to a walled garden with brick and timber sheds and greenhouse. There are many mature trees and shrubs providing year round interest.
