Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

Wyatts is a superb example of a Georgian property built circa 1795 for the rector, Mr Brock, and is listed in Hasted’s historical survey of Kent as being “a parsonage house near the church, in a handsome style after a design by Mr Wyatt”. James Wyatt was a contemporary of Robert Adam and the house is built in his neo-classical design and style. James Wyatt is renowned for many famous buildings including Sheffield Park in West Sussex, The Radcliffe Observatory in Oxford, Heaton Hall in Lancashire and Fonthill Abbey in Wiltshire, to name a few, he also extensively remodelled Windsor Castle for George III.

This outstanding house retains many period features including a superb full height Regency Bay on the rear of the property, open fireplaces, ceiling roses, deep skirting boards, window shutters, plaster friezes and ornate cornicing. Wyatts has been the subject of a careful restoration programme by the current owner and now provides well arranged, spacious family accommodation. Points of particular note include:-

• The elegant Drawing Room with its distinctive curved Regency Bay with original shutters, original fire surround, open fireplace and ornate plaster frieze and egg and dart cornicing.

• An impressive full height arched doorway leads to the Dining Room, formerly the Library, which is double aspect and enjoys delightful outlooks over the garden. There is an attractive fireplace with slate hearth and original window shutters.

• The Kitchen/Breakfast Room is extremely well fitted with a range of wall and base units including a tall larder unit and extensive beautiful blue pearl granite work surfaces. Integral appliances include a Neff double oven and grill, an AEG induction hob, Neff fridge/freezer and Bosch dishwasher. In addition there is an attractive matching dresser unit with glazed display cabinet and an ornate feature period fireplace.

• The Principal Bedroom is double aspect and directly opposite is a luxuriously fitted bathroom with freestanding bath, separate shower, Heritage style twin pedestal wash basins and a original Georgian style fireplace.

• The lower ground floor is comprised of a series of five generously proportioned rooms, one being the former kitchen with its original bread oven. This whole area offers enormous potential for further development, subject to the necessary consents, and could be converted into a cinema room or even self-contained accommodation as it has its own independent entrance.
