A panelled front door leads into an entrance vestibule, which leads into the study at the front of the house. This room has a Georgian influence with original box-shutter window, feature fireplace with Georgian-style surround and polished steel inset and deep fitted cupboards to each side. From here there is a corridor with stairs leading to the first floor and which leads into the dining room. This wonderful room opens to full ceiling height with exposed timbers and a window looking into the pretty courtyard. The feature of this room is an open brick fireplace with bressumer beam over with a gas point; the lovely exposed beams give an enormous amount of character. From here one step leads into the beautifully fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces over, and fully equipped with fridge freezer, Stoves double oven and microwave, Miele 5-ring gas hob with filter hood over, deep stainless steel Franke bowl with granite work surfaces to each side and space for a slim line dishwasher. A door leads out to the courtyard and a further door leads into a corridor with a well-fitted shower room, half tiled with shower cubicle, wash basin, WC, utility cupboard housing washing machine, and various fitted cupboards.

At the end of the corridor, a further door leads into the main reception room, a lovely double aspect room with patio doors leading to the courtyard and a second set of patio doors leading into the garden. There is a cast-iron, boxed fireplace and deep hearth. Just off the sitting room is a door leading into the Master suite, comprising a dressing room with range of glass fronted hanging cupboards and a door into the generous en suite bathroom with half tiled walls, WC, bidet, wash basin and bath. A further door leads into the master bedroom with patio doors leading to the garden and one wall with a range of glass fronted hanging cupboards and fitted shelves to one side. *error*

Stairs to the first floor are reached off the corridor from the study. These lead to a half landing where there is a cloakroom with wash basin and WC and bedroom 2, a lovely character room with exposed brick and timbers to one wall, exposed ceiling timbers and deep fitted wardrobes. From the landing the stairs continue to the second floor where there is a further bedroom, open to full height with stripped timbers and a deep store cupboard.

o Wingham is a thriving village with a range of local amenities and shops including post office, greengrocer, village store etc. Canterbury is 5 miles to the west and provides a wide range of educational, recreational and shopping facilities.

o The A2 can be joined at Barham, (c. 5 miles south), which gives access to the M2 at Faversham and remaining motorway network. There is a railway station at Adisham with a stopping service to London but, for more frequent services to the City, the service from Faversham (c. 13 miles) takes approximately 70 minutes or from Canterbury about 90 minutes.

o The Channel Port of Dover and the Eurotunnel at Folkestone are both within 12 miles, and Ashford International Station (15 miles) offers a regular service via the Eurostar to Paris and Brussels.

Approached via the kitchen and sitting room is a large paved courtyard with raised flowerbeds. The rear garden has been cleverly landscaped into a series of \"rooms\" with heavy accent on Mediterranean style plantings. Immediately to the rear of the house is an al fresco eating area. Mature banana and palm trees dominate the first \"room\", and a paved path winds across a lawn through a topiaried hedge to a second room, where there is a catalpa tree and shaped beds with varieties of exotic and more traditional summer plantings. To the right is a gravelled seating area. A wisteria-clad arch leads to the final room where there is a greenhouse, a magnolia grandiflora and a further catalpa tree. A path leads to a carport capable of housing two small or one family size car. Beyond that is further parking for at least two cars.
