A stunning example of a Grade II listed 16th century country house boasting a wealth of character, exposed heavy timbers and feature fireplaces, with beautifully landscaped gardens of 0.4 of an acre, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty atop the North Downs.

This property was originally built as a school house and later converted into smaller cottages then subsequently back into the exceptional country house that stands today.

The generously proportioned and flexible accommodation is arranged over two floors comprising an entrance hall, dining room with feature stone inglenook fireplace, drawing room with feature stone inglenook fireplace, snug with wood burning stove, kitchen breakfast room with large Aga, utility room and downstairs cloakroom, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, the well-maintained grounds extend to 0.4 of an acre and surround the property with an impressive lawn stretching away from the front elevation, whilst an intimate rear patio area makes the most of the evening sun, ideally suited to al-fresco dining.

Off road parking is provided by a gravel driveway for several vehicles and a detached garage/workshop.

The property lies in a small country lane next to St Michael's & All Angels Church in the centre of the sought after rural hamlet of Throwley, a delightfully pretty location completely surrounded by farmland and rolling countryside with amazing walks and cycle/riding routes available from the front door.

Despite the rural setting, the market town of Faversham is just five miles distant providing a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities along with well-respected schooling options and Faversham Golf Club is just one mile away. The seaside town of Whitstable with its annual Oyster Festival and Regatta are just 12 miles north-east of the property. The Cathedral city of Canterbury lies 12 miles to the east providing a more comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and dining facilities in addition to a broad spectrum of schooling choices and the University of Kent at Canterbury offering further education options.

The property is situated four miles south of the M2 motorway (junction 6) providing access to London and the Kent coast. For the commuter, main line rail travel to London Victoria is available at Faversham, also providing the high speed Javelin service for fast travel to London.

Quality country houses such as this are rarely available on the open market and interested applicants are strongly advised to make immediate arrangements to view to avoid any disappointment.
