Property Information

The Manor is an incredibly unique find. This Grade II Listed Regency property which covers 3766 sq ft (349.8 sq m) sits central within a secure 1 acre plot and was built in 1832.
When the current owners first visited The Manor, they instantly felt they belonged and it is easy to see why – this impressive home welcomes you, appearing through the trees as you travel along the sweeping driveway via electric gates.
Despite being built in the Regency period, the architecture is undeniably Georgian. The yellow brick elevations aren’t a common feature of the area and give the property a stylised, bespoke finish. The white marble doorsteps of Italian origin lead to the portico which features the original cast iron filigree gates and front door – this home really does offer an opulent segment of history.

There are four grand reception rooms. The ‘Drawing Room’ is one of the most lived-in rooms in the house. With the Fitzwilliam Fireplace and lovely views over the grounds, enjoying a cup of coffee in this elegant room is a great start to any day. This space encapsulates a certain era, and in fact this property as a whole offers respite from the rush of modern life, introducing more appreciative pace. The 'Parlour' is a calming room with a reclaimed Georgian fireplace and box bay window seat, again enjoying a pleasant outlook of the south gardens. The formal Dining Room is the perfect place for dinner parties whilst the study/garden room is currently being used as a gym.
A kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, boot room and a stunning bathroom conclude the generous ground floor.
An attractive balustrade staircase with luxurious Axminster carpet rises to the first floor which presents five double bedrooms, all with wonderful views of the gardens. The 'Master Bedroom' has a 'Jack & Jill' en-suite with a rolltop, clawfoot bath and view of the water fountain, whilst the 'Guest Suite' is on it owns floor, accessed from the half landing with a shower room and separate WC.
The cellar offers versatility and amazing potential with three rooms, two of which are large in size and currently used as a workshop and a snug. This room would make a great cinema room as the ceiling has already been sound proofed.

A focal point of The Manor is the bespoke cast iron ornamental fountain positioned at the front of the property, suiting its age and grandeur. The centrepiece, which features two cherubs, was imported from Italy. With four characterful, landscaped gardens there is ample opportunity to enjoy the outside space. You can enjoy decadent afternoon teas by the fountain, read a book in the north garden enjoying the smell of roses and the bubbling water, or play with the children as they run wild in the rear garden. For the barbeques, summer evenings entertaining or relaxing in the hot tub, move up to the porcelain paved terraces in the south garden.
There are a plethora of outbuildings that include a larger than usual double garage with great potential for a first floor room (subject to usual consents being obtained). ‘Ye Old Workshop’ is a large outbuilding lined with solid oak and is thought to be the Tabernacle for the farmers in the surrounding area in 1832. In addition, there is an original dairy, mower shed, large log shelter building and a teenager den which run alongside the rear of the kitchen and workshop.

The Manor has recently undergone extensive, yet sympathetic restoration resulting in a truly remarkable home. Professional decorators were contracted with the use of Farrow & Ball specialist Casien Distemper Paints, that have a breathable permeable structure suited to period homes. The Georgian bar windows were meticulously restored and the installation of column radiators throughout continue the theme.
The garden grounds have also benefitted from significant investment which now compliment the opulence of The Manor. When landscaping the gardens, the owners were mindful of creating a secure and ambient landscape as well as preserving the condition of the healthy the ancient trees, including a Yew Tree in the driveway dating back over 250 years. The trees line the perimeter providing the ultimate seclusion.

All in all, a truly unique opportunity is on offer. Call the exclusive sole agents, Kent Estate Agencies to arrange your viewing appointment.



Location:
Being a mere 9 minutes from the sandy beaches at Minnis Bay, the location has given the current owner a great deal of pleasure.
