Mentioned in The Domesday Book and set in a little known and relatively undiscovered part of rural East Kent, The Ringleton Manor Estate is located in gently undulating countryside between Canterbury and Sandwich.

Approached over a quiet country lane that terminates at the automatic gates of the house, a long, private drive with well-tended parkland on each side leads up to the principal house. This estate offers a wonderful opportunity for the purchaser to acquire a compact, manageable estate with excellent ancillary accommodation.

At the mouth of the drive is Ringleton Lodge, a detached two/three bedroom Victorian lodge house. The main house is a most handsome Grade II Listed building, the core of which dates from the 17th century and which was significantly extended and improved in the 19th century with the addition of the glorious symmetrical red brick façade on the south eastern elevation. Set in the middle of the estate, the house benefits from high levels of privacy and seclusion. Arranged to provide excellent family accommodation and with a fine range of reception rooms there are many opportunities for entertaining on both a formal and a more informal basis.

A wide, panelled, elegant front door leads into an impressive entrance hall, dominated by a series of beautifully crafted timber archways opening into a delightful reception area with a gorgeous Georgian style fire surround; the joinery here is exceptional. All the principal reception rooms are reached from the hallway, and a beautifully turned oak staircase leads to the first floor. The feeling of quality is evident from the start and is enhanced by the silk wallpaper found throughout the hallway and reception rooms.

Beyond the hall, located in the oldest part of the house, is a second sitting room/family room, which is double aspect and has an open Georgian style fire. Running the rear of the hallway is a wide passageway with a half glazed door with original shutters; this leads directly into the Amdega conservatory with marble tiled, underheated flooring. There is access to a secondary cellar in this area.

The stylish drawing room is a lovely, light room of elegant proportions, with tall ceilings and deep sash windows with shutters on two aspects; double doors lead into the conservatory. There is an open fireplace with log-effect gas fire set within an ornate marble surround and hearth, and tall windows on either side fill the room with light. There is fielded wooden panelling to dado height.

A passageway runs to the left of the hall, off which is sited the morning room, an attractive room with a door leading directly into the reception hall. It has a central fireplace with ornate Georgian-style surround and inset log-effect gas fire. A dining room is at the end of the passageway, a beautiful room fully panelled in lime pine with a centrally sited open Georgian-style surround and fitted log-effect gas fire with beautifully crafted illuminated display niches. There is a deep hatch leading directly into the kitchen. This room is double aspect with fitted shutters.

Close by the dining room are the two kitchens. One utilised for day-to-day purposes and the other for when more extensive entertaining is called for. The main cellar is accessed via a door between the two kitchens.

Beyond the kitchens is the superb reception hall, currently used as a second larger formal dining room. Other useful rooms lead off here, including two utility rooms, an informal seating area and an office. A small lobby leads directly to the gym. From here there is direct access into the pair of double garages and adjoining workshop. The leisure facilities can also be accessed from here.

The first floor is approached via an elegant turned wooden staircase, which leads to a galleried landing with an archway to the library, which has custom built book shelves and forms a quiet reading area. The library benefits from its own cloakroom.

The master bedroom is an elegant, bright double aspect room with deep sash windows, fitted shutters and a raised bed area. This room is fully fitted with Smallbone handmade wardrobe furniture. Double doors lead to a concealed en-suite shower room with steam shower, wash basin and WC. A dressing area off the main room has matching Smallbone furniture and leads through to a magnificent en-suite bathroom with marble tiled floor, twin wash basins in marble surround, bidet and WC, and large Jacuzzi bath, all with gold-plated fittings. On the opposite side of the passageway are two further double bedrooms.

A matching passageway on the western side leads to two further double bedrooms and two further bathrooms, both equipped to a high standard with marble floors and surfaces, gold-plated fittings. Bedrooms 6 and 7 are approached from a small rear landing with a staircase down to the secondary kitchen. Bedroom 6 is a bright, spacious double room that has been recently refurbished with concealed wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.

Leisure Complex:
The main entrance to the leisure complex is via external doors reached from within the enclosed courtyard in front of the garages. This is an impressive building by any standards.

Ringleton Manor has been the subject of extensive expenditure over the past 40 years and has one of the most outstanding leisure complexes. Built to resemble a traditional Kentish Barn the principal area is given over to a magnificent Roman-style heated, mosaic lined, 17m ozone swimming pool that does not require significant chemical treatments. To enjoy the pool to its maximum the complex is equipped with twin changing rooms, a kitchen, Nordic sauna and Turkish Bath, sun room and spa pool. Above the pool complex is a large games room/office, which has a small landing with a cupboard housing kitchenette facilities. The games room/office has windows on all four aspects and three internal doors over
