CHECK OUT THE AERIAL VIDEO! A spectacular medieval hall-house, originally owned by a wealthy merchant, with generous and versatile accommodation spread over three floors and situated in the heart of the historic Cinque Port of Sandwich. Merchant Hall dates back to circa 1470 and displays some exceptional period features, including a wealth of exposed beams, fireplaces and a breathtaking monastic wall.

The property has been lovingly restored and sympathetically refurbished by its current owners to create a delicate blend of modern luxury with rich heritage and tradition and is impeccably presented throughout. The owners used the services of a Farrow and Ball consultant to select colours that complement the age and style of the house.

The front door opens into a spacious reception hall, with ample storage cupboards, exposed beams and a lovely chequered tiled floor. To the front of the property is a beautifully fitted kitchen and breakfast room with contemporary shaker style units, integrated appliances and a central island and breakfast bar. The modern and stylish luxury of the kitchen creates a striking contrast alongside some fine period features such as the bressumer and exposed brickwork of the chimney breast.

Beyond the reception hall, an exquisite inner hallway with many exposed beams and an ancient flint wall with an inset stone font, provides access to the garden. The clever addition of bespoke seating along the base of this splendid, monastic wall transforms this feature into a peaceful and atmospheric yet welcoming space.

Also to the rear of the property is agenerously proportioned, open plan sitting room and dining room, which looks out over the pretty courtyard garden. This room has some wonderful period features, including a grand inglenook fireplace with Lancastrian Rose emblems set above it.

On the first floor, there is a most beautiful room professionally styled with lovely exposed beams and an exposed brick fireplace with a flagstone hearth and a wood burner effect gas fire. This vast space is currently used as a drawing room, however has previously been used as a bedroom and could easily be used as such again. Also on this floor, there is a small double/comfortable single bedroom (currently used as a study) and a well appointed family bathroom. This has been fitted with a traditionally styled white suite, including a bath and separate large shower enclosure, and has been finished with attractive porcelain tiling alongside several original exposed beams.

On the second floor, there is a spacious double bedroom with river views to the front of the house, with bespoke, high quality contemporary styled bedroom furniture. A spectacular central landing with beautifully carved medieval leaded windows leads to the master bedroom at the rear of the house. This has a wonderful beamed and part vaulted ceiling and a small en suite, however we understand that consent does exist to significantly enlarge this en suite. In addition to this, there is a vast roof void which could, subject to the necessary consents be converted, creating an additional floor if required.

OUTSIDE:

The rear garden is a wonderful courtyard garden, with attractive and well stocked beds and a useful brick built shed. The garden is enclosed to all three sides by tall, historic flint walls which afford a surprisingly high degree of both privacy and sound proofing, making this an oasis of calm within the heart of this thriving town.
