Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set in the heart of the medieval town of Sandwich, Harfleet House is a truly outstanding, historic period property. Originally a medieval hall house owned by the monks of Christ Church, Canterbury, the reception space is remarkable throughout, with great volume and character. The property also benefits from a garden studio, garage and off-street parking. In its time the house has been a hotel, tea room and restaurant and could suit a variety of business/commercial uses subject to any necessary consents.

The front door opens into the bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with a door to the courtyard. The adjacent “Grand Dining Room” is set to vast proportions with extraordinary ceiling height, a charming leaded ‘galleon’ window overlooking the courtyard and an inglenook fireplace with carved oak surround. Twin staircases either side of the fireplace rise to the sizable drawing room with ornate wood panelling; a split level landing off the second staircase continues to the first floor.

The “Grand Hall” on the first floor is an exceptional room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams featuring a King post and chequer pattern painted floorboards. A door to one end leads to the master bedroom, which has an en-suite bathroom, a fireplace and two large sash windows, allowing ample light into the room. The family shower room sits adjacent, together with a staircase to a substantial space above the master bedroom, currently arranged as one large room with a vaulted ceiling, which could be used as a bedroom or family/cinema room.

Stairs from the opposite end of the grand hall descend to a further bedroom, a shower room and a generous landing with wrought iron spiral staircase leading to the kitchen. Two bright double bedrooms, both with chequer pattern painted floorboards, are on the second floor.

The wonders continue with an ‘Undercroft’ approached off the courtyard via stone steps. The room has exposed beams with stone and flint surround and provides an ideal space for a home gym/office, hobby room, music room, etc.

Harfleet House is conveniently located close to the picturesque quayside within the Conservation Area. Regarded as one of the finest medieval towns in England, Sandwich offers all one would expect of a thriving, prosperous town and the property has easy access to a wide range of shops and cultural attractions together with excellent educational facilities.

Westwood Cross provides additional shopping and leisure amenities, with a broad range of services found in Deal and Canterbury.

The local station offers High Speed services to London, and the A256 joins the A2/M2 and M20/A20 at Dover. The area has good access to the Continent.

The pretty central courtyard garden is enclosed and private, serving as an outdoor reception space. A passageway leads to the sheltered rear courtyard, the perfect area for al-fresco dining.

The garden studio has French doors opening to the rear courtyard. A gate leads to the garage and parking area
