Pilgrims Nook offers an outstanding opportunity to acquire a wonderful family home set in a beautiful private location with far reaching views, a newly established vineyard, substantial barn annexe/home office, indoor swimming pool complex and further garaging.
Pilgrims Nook dates from the 19th Century and has been much altered and improved over the years to create an outstanding family home in a very private yet extremely convenient location.
The property boasts excellent reception rooms with beautiful proportions and in all, just under 4,500sqft of accommodation in the main house.
Located a little way from the house and also heated by the biomass boiler is an indoor swimming complex with a changing room and doors opening out onto a terrace, ideal for al fresco entertaining.
Pilgrims Nook is approached via a sliding electric gate leading past the garaging to a parking and turning area to the front of the house. The gardens immediately surrounding the house are sheltered by mature trees with lawns and lead out to the vineyard which has its own access from Strakers Hill. By the entrance is a newly constructed barn with 3 phase power extending to about 3,060sqft (284.2sqm). The vineyard is planted with Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonay with a small area of Ortega grapes. If required, the vendors will reserve a right of holdover to harvest the 2022 crop. The vineyard also has the benefit of a prior approval for the construction of an irrigation pond, drainage and pipework for irrigating the vineyard.
Pilgrims Nook is in a convenient location with excellent access to the A256 Whitstable to Sandwich Road.
