Three of the best period homes for sale in the Garden of England


offers in excess of £1,000,000

Manwood Court is a Grade II Listed building considered to be one of the finest examples of Tudor architecture in the town. Built in 1563 as the Free Grammar School of Sir Roger Manwood of Sandwich, when the school relocated in 1895 it was converted into two substantial houses standing in beautiful, mature walled gardens.

The original construction shows a strong Dutch influence, particularly in the brickwork and gabling.

The flexible accommodation could be used either as a substantial residence or a home with a self-contained annexe. There are six bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms and a large conservatory, an open-plan kitchen leads to the dining room and there are separate utility rooms and a boiler room, two store rooms and a downstairs cloakroom.

Outside, the walled front garden with double wrought-iron gates opens on to a lower paved area inset with many small borders surrounded by box hedging. Past the front door is a Gothic arch and gate leading through to a smaller patio garden and

a secondary entrance to the house, or if required a separate entrance to the annexe. Extensive mature walled gardens lie to the rear of the house and there’s a cedar summerhouse, a timber garden shed and an aluminium-framed greenhouse, ideal for the keen gardener.

Wateringbury £865,000

Westbury is a charming family house believed to date in part from the 1820s with attractive weatherboarded elevations under a half-hipped and pitched tiled roof with

shaped barge boards.

The present owners have carried out many improvements including partial re-wiring, partial re-plumbing, loft insulation and replacement windows. An extension in 2001 linked the house with an outbuilding to create a guest bedroom suite.

Reception rooms include a dining room with an attractive fireplace with cast iron insert and decorative ceramic tiling, an elegant triple-aspect sitting room with a wood-burning stove on a flagstone hearth, and a double-aspect kitchen/breakfast room.

There’s also a spacious tiled utility room.

Upstairs there’s a double-aspect master bedroom with attractive views over farmland and an en suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
