From a Dutch gabled home to an attractive contemporary oast, Kent’s top properties on the market this month

Graveney £700,000

Sandbanks Court is a charming Dutch gabled family home that’s full of space and light throughout. It’s had a major overhaul and was significantly modified after the current owners purchased in 2002.

The bright and airy entrance hall leads to the triple-aspect drawing room with a lovely brick fireplace. The dining room sits between the kitchen/breakfast room and drawing room and gives access to both, as well as having French double doors which lead out to the rear garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room is a large, airy triple-aspect space with a door leading out to the side of the property.

The light and spacious feel continues onto the first floor; the landing gives access to the generous en-suite master bedroom, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

On the second floor are two double bedrooms, one of which is currently used as an art studio.
