Norfolk House, a fine Grade II listed Georgian property, stands sentinel on the High Street proudly proclaiming its architectural importance to the surrounding period houses.
Steps lead up to a fine pedimented doorcase with a fielded panelled door and an ornate fan light over. This leads to an inner vestibule and thence into a light and spacious dining room. One wall is fully fitted with bookshelves and a focal point is the open fireplace with a marble surround. Opposite the dining room is the sitting room, with lovely high ceilings, dado rail and a welcoming open fire within a substantial marble surround.
The hallway leads to an inner “staircase hall” from where an elegant staircase rises to the first floor.
A light and airy kitchen with a door to the garden offers ample space for a table and chairs for informal dining. Beyond the kitchen is a good size utility room with an original Victorian cupboard along one wall. An understairs cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
The wide staircase leads up to the bright first floor landing. At this level there are two generous bedrooms and the family bathroom. The stair s rise to the second floor where two further bedrooms and the second bathroom complete the accommodation.
Conveniently located in the centre of Sandwich, Norfolk House is close to the picturesque quayside within the Conservation Area of the ancient Cinque Port. Long held as one of the finest medieval towns in England, Sandwich has all that one would expect of a thriving and prosperous town, and the property has easy access to a wide range of shops and cultural attractions.
Westwood Cross provides additional shopping and leisure amenities, with a broad range of services found in Deal and Canterbury. There are excellent educational facilities in the area.
Being just a few miles from the Kent coast and Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve, the property's location provides ample opportunity to enjoy the surrounding countryside with wonderful walking and excellent cycling routes. There are numerous quality golf courses locally, including Royal St George’s.
The local station offers High Speed connections to London, and the A256 joins the A2/M2 and M20/A20 at Dover. The area has good access to the Continent.
The walled courtyard garden to the rear offers a high level of privacy and is amply sized for alfresco entertaining. Lovely old brick and flint walls and a former fireplace add immense character and charm. A gateway to the side of the garden leads into a passageway to the High Street.
