This ultimate barn conversion creates a stunning family home that is full of charm with some awe inspiring original features. These give it a unique character and include a plethora of wall, ceiling and wind brace beams from its origins in the 17th century. Having driven about a third of a mile from The Street in Woodnesborough to the end of a private country lane flanked by fields and orchards you sweep into the large driveway where you see the property spread out before you, nestling in 0.8612 of an acre of garden.

Immediately you can begin to revel in the appeal of the exterior weatherboarding and the tall Kent peg tile roof and newly restored window frames. This feeling is enhanced even further once you see the beautiful courtyard with its circular paved areas, raised shrub beds and patio leading to the impressive covered main entrance. However even these delights will not prepare you for the breathtaking sight that greets you when you walk into the superb reception hall. Wherever you look there is something special to see whether it is the virtually triple height vaulted and beamed ceiling with rope lights, the surrounding minstrels gallery, the attractive wood staircase, oak flooring or the floor to ceiling windows and door leading to the rear covered terrace and the original barn doors. From the hall there are double wood doors to the sitting room with its wall beams, modern log burner and built in TV while on the other side there is a very large and attractive dining room that includes part of the minstrels gallery and some original flint floor edging and where you can enjoy more formal entertaining.

This leads through a wide wood and glass door to the large, light, bright and well fitted contemporary kitchen/breakfast room with its wall and ceiling beams, curved central island breakfast bar, oak units and granite worktops. It includes a range cooker, double butler sink, integrated fridge, microwave, dishwasher, space for under counter freezer and wine rack as well as access to the garden. There is a large dining area with a magnificent picture window looking out onto the garden and the fields beyond and from here you can access a beamed corridor with a trendy wash closet, large larder cupboard, coat cupboard, large fitted utility room and boiler room.

Upstairs the U shaped galleried landing is dominated by beautiful wind brace and vaulted ceiling beams that are also charming features in some of the bedrooms. There is a family bathroom and four double bedrooms with lovely rural views as well as the impressive main bedroom with its fitted furniture and modern en-suite incorporating a Jacuzzi bath, ‘his and hers’ basins and a triple shower and great views over the countryside. There is access to two large loft spaces both have been boarded with lighting and insulation, however the larger one has a window and is ready to be converted in to another bedroom with a spiral staircase.

Beyond the rear covered terrace is a secure fenced garden area that is ideal for kids and dogs while the vast lawns lead to a detached L shaped brick outbuilding with a large patio that is currently being used as a delightful bar/games/gym complex with a large TV and a surround sound system. It has wood flooring and includes a sauna, steam room and shower room and could easily be converted to a separate annexe, , holiday let or an office for anyone working from home who doesn’t want to be disturbed by activities in the house. The driveway provides off road parking for at least four or five cars and leads to a double garage with storage facilities above.

“We love the history of the place and even discovered where the horses were tethered in what is now the courtyard and the fact it used to be a plum farm and there are still a couple of plum trees and eating and cooking apple trees in the garden. It is lovely being surrounded by fields and the Kent countryside and we have direct access to a path to the beautiful medieval Cinque Port town of Sandwich, so it is great for a walk with the dog and the children. It is very quiet and peaceful here yet we are close to Sandwich with its vast array of fascinating medieval properties, individual shops, restaurants and bars as well as the station that can whisk you to St Pancras in under an hour and a half. For golfing enthusiasts Sandwich is the 'Mecca' with the championship courses at Royal St Georges and Princes Golf Club while water sport aficionados can join the Sandwich Bay Sailing and Motor Boat Club or the Sandwich Bay Sailing and Water Ski club.”

The hamlet of Woodnesborough is charming and it is only a short distance to a dog grooming parlour and the White Mill veterinary centre for looking after your pets. We are quite near the village of Eastry with its 17th century pub, convenience store, two hairdressers and a beauty therapy centre as well as a pharmacy, post office and a primary school. It is a friendly community with the village hall regularly used by many local organisations, including the local theatre company, the Horticultural Society and health and fitness classes. Ash is also fairly close and includes the St Faith’s prep school. It is also not far to the excellent Northbourne prep school while for older children the St Roger Manwood Grammar School in Sandwich is rated Outstanding by Ofsted. There are also additional grammar and top class private schools in Dover, Canterbury and Thanet”.
