An outstanding home of magnificent period features and huge proportions boasting seven bedrooms, four bathrooms and four reception rooms. Originally built as a detached ‘villa’ residence in the early 19th Century and later converted to a school house, this Georgian property has been restored to its former glory by respected Kentish developers, Jenner. The house retains a number of restored, original or replicated features throughout including decorative cornicing and ceiling roses, sash windows and beautiful period fireplaces.

The property boasts in excess of 4,000 square feet of accommodation and every effort has been taken with no expense spared to retain or restore as many period features as possible. The developers have given the house a modern facelift whilst remaining sympathetic to the original architectural style and feel of the property.

The very generous accommodation is arranged over four floors and is accessed from street level at the front leading to a wide and welcoming entrance hallway with large kitchen/breakfast room to one side, living and dining room to the other and cloak/WC to the rear.
