  • Self-contained one bedroom Coach House
  • Tennis court
  • Approximately 1 acre

Once described by The Telegraph as 'Property Wreck of the Week', Kings End Farmhouse now stands beautifully proud displaying the years of hard work culminating in this now, stunning and enchanting farmhouse. Grade II Listed and believed to date back as early as the 15th century, the house was subsequently gentrified in the 17th century. Set within approximately 1 acre of finely manicured gardens, including a paddock, the first noticeable feature of the property is the impressive catslide roof. Internally, the house does not disappoint and maintains a wealth of renovated period features with inglenook fireplaces, oak flooring, traditional wooden latched doors, exposed timbers and vaulted ceilings. With a wonderful diverse mix of contemporary with period, there are high vaulted ceilings with glass panelling and heating via Bisque radiators. The generous sized family room enjoys views across the sun terrace and gardens with a further snug/sitting room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, wet room and boot room on the ground floor. The first floor accommodates an impressive master suite with separate dressing room and spacious En-suite shower room with two further good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the first floor. The vast attic space has been converted to provide two further bedrooms, a snug/sitting area and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom incorporating a wonderful large Corian bath. In addition to the main house, there is a stunning, self-contained one bedroom Coach House, ideal for extended family members or perhaps a rental opportunity. Attached to the Coach House is a further good sized office/utility room/games room. Kings End Farmhouse is surrounded by farm land, and is a stones throw away from Richborough Roman Fort and Amphitheatre. The Cinque Port town of Sandwich is approximately 3 miles distant and offers a range of amenities including supermarket, shops, banks, post office, chemist, doctor and dentist surgeries, restaurants, public houses, choice of schools and leisure facilities, with a mainline station having high speed services direct to London St. Pancras and frequent trains to London Charing Cross. Sandwich is also well known for its golf courses with Royal St George’s which will host the 149th open in 2020.
