Chislet House is a substantial former vicarage, generously proportioned and with a lovely southerly aspect. Set on high ground, the property is quietly located on the edge of a charming rural village, whilst also being close to Canterbury. An in and out driveway with electronic gates leads directly to the front door.
An enclosed entrance vestibule opens into a large, welcoming hallway, from where all the principal rooms are accessed. The drawing room is a well-proportioned double room with doors out to the rear terrace. Adjacent is the equally splendid dining room and beyond that the breakfast room and sun room. These three rooms all interconnect with sliding doors to allow the creation of a magnificent entertaining space. With the benefit of all the rooms facing south, they are flooded with light and all enjoy views over the extensive, lawned grounds.
Situated off the hall, adjacent to the drawing room is the study, and a short passageway opposite leads to the well-fitted kitchen and utility room. Beyond the kitchen and breakfast room are two further rooms, a sun room and a “freezer” room. This has independent access from the main house and, together with the secondary staircase and large bedroom above, could easily combine to create a self-contained annexe. A door from the sun room leads down to the wine cellar.
A wide staircase rises to the first floor landing. As with the ground floor, all the bedrooms have a bright southerly aspect. The largest bedroom is at the end, with an adjoining bathroom. Three further double bedrooms at this level share two bathrooms, the larger of the two being very sizable. On the second floor there are two more bedrooms, one of which has a sauna en-suite, and two attic store rooms.
Chislet House is a rare home of distinction and offers an opportunity for the successful purchaser to acquire a substantial property with plenty of scope for creating a fabulous family home.
The gardens provide a high level of privacy. Set to one side of the drive is an attractive Kentish barn, currently used for garden implement storage. The driveway leads to a large courtyard area, where the brick built triple garage is situated. This has an adjoining workshop.
The main garden is to the rear of the house, and here swathes of lawn interspersed with trees provide a pastoral setting for the house. An area of orchard is situated to one side of the garden and has separate access from the lane. Within the garden is the swimming pool building.
