THE PROPERTY

An historic house dating from the 15th century with outstanding views.

This beautiful period property occupies a slightly elevated position on the eastern end of the Hoo peninsula in open countryside with magnificent panoramic views across farmland and the Cliffe Pool Nature Reserve. Just on the outskirts of the village of Cliffe, this is an almost forgotten backwater of Kent, yet it is just 35 miles from London and there is easy access to the A2/M2 and Rochester. An important example of domestic architecture dating from the 15th century with later additions. This fine timber framed hall house has a wonderful interior which has retained many of its original features including evidence the original aisle layout and an early inglenook fireplace in the main reception room. The house has remained remarkably unspoilt and has been the subject of an in-depth report by the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England. The accommodation is spacious, in all about 2,685 sq.ft., and includes a large sitting room, formal dining room with doors leading to a conservatory, a good size kitchen/breakfast room, a separate utility room and a ground floor bathroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, each full of character, and two shower rooms. The fifth bedroom is on the second floor and has commanding views out across the Thames estuary. A dry cellar runs under part of the property. There is a mature walled garden which has been richly planted with a mix of shrubs, roses and herbaceous plants in borders and island beds which surround the well-maintained lawn. It offers great scope for anyone keen on gardening; there is a paved terrace suitable for alfresco dining and plenty of space for entertaining or for young children to enjoy. In all the property occupies approximately half an acre. Viewing is strictly by appointment through the sole agents Jackson-Stops either through their offices in Sevenoaks or London 020 7664 6646
