An elegant two bedroom, two bathroom first floor apartment set within a stunning Grade I listed mansion house, with 16 acres of maintained grounds including tennis courts, heated swimming pool, formal gardens, private garaging and parking, located in a wonderfully private rural setting just 4 miles south of the market town of Faversham.

This magnificent property was built in 1654 and originally owned by the Sondes family. The Mansion House was converted into luxury apartments some 30 years ago. Upon arrival at Lees Court, a private driveway from the village of Sheldwich Lees leads through meticulously tended landscaped grounds leading to a visitor parking area and the entrance to the stable yard complex. 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 13, one is greeted with an entrance hall with large windows and access to all well-proportioned rooms including a light and airy 17'10” x 19'1” drawing room and dining area with 9'6” high ceilings, fitted kitchen, a 19'8” x 14' master bedroom which enjoys an en-suite shower room, 19'6” x 8'6” second bedroom and a 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.

Fast road networks are easily accessible by car with junction 6 of the M2 motorway being just 1.5 miles to the north, providing access to the capital and north Kent coast.

Sheldwich and Sheldwich Lees are situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a village church dedicated to St James, dating back to the eleventh century and having been extensively restored in 1888.
