The Manor House is a handsome Grade II Listed house lying in unspoilt undulating countryside to the north of Canterbury.

Dating from the late 17th Century the house has had significant additions over the years. Originally a timber-framed farmhouse, the property was extended and altered in the 18th Century with the addition of the southern wing. As a result, the house has huge charm and character with very obvious detailing from Georgian times, such as the elegant staircase and hall, and the lovely cupboards in the drawing room, as well as exposed timbers in the dining room and kitchen.

A door to the right of the hall leads into the beamed dining room with an open brick fireplace. Opposite the dining room is a door to the sitting room, a bright room with a communicating door to the drawing room. This is a double aspect room with lovely Georgian features, an unusual curved back fireplace and doors to the garden. The hall leads through to a rear hall where there is a utility room and a separate shower room.

The farmhouse kitchen is a welcoming space with a two-oven AGA and a traditional fitted dresser to one wall. From here a door leads into the magnificent ?music? room. This is a wonderful room for entertaining, with glazed doors opening on to the garden. The focal point of the room is a magnificent brick inglenook fireplace with the chimney head exposed to the full height, along with exposed ancient and contemporary timbers to the ceiling.

An elegant staircase rises to the first floor where there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms. A discreet door on the landing gives access to the second floor, which has been converted into a magnificent space with a variety of potential uses, including playroom, secondary bedroom, etc.

Set a little way back from the road, the house has an in and out driveway. The gardens are informally laid out and set principally to the rear and side of the house. A driveway leads to a delightful thatched barn that incorporates a garage and secondary storage. Behind the barn is the heated swimming pool. A picturesque area of garden to the side of the barn is centred on a charming pond with a bridge traversing it.
