Once inside the property, a grand entrance hallway with its ornate staircase and original clock mechanism for the Mansion House leads to 16 apartments.
Upon arrival at Apartment 14, one is greeted with an elegant entrance hall with large windows and access to all well-proportioned rooms including a magnificent light and airy 19'5 x 14'9 drawing room and dining area with 9'6 high ceilings, contemporary fitted kitchen with a range of integrated appliances, a 19'10 x 14'1 master bedroom which enjoys an en-suite shower room, 19'6 x 8'6 second bedroom and a luxury three piece bathroom suite. The property benefits from gas fired central heating.
Outside, the property enjoys the use of 16 acres of maintained grounds which include extensive lawned areas with floral beds and pathways, an outdoor heated swimming pool, all-weather tennis courts and a courtyard patio to the rear of Apartment 14. Private parking is provided by a single garage and additional parking space. For visitors, there is a dedicated visitor car park.
Sheldwich Lees is a delightfully pretty village lying some four miles south of the market town of Faversham and 10 miles north of Ashford, both with an excellent array of shopping and leisure facilities and main line railway stations providing fast access to London and the Kent coast.
