Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

Dream of sunny days ahead in this won­der­ful spot, which has been owned by the same fam­ily for more than 200 years.

The Tun­stall House es­tate at Tun­stall, near Sit­ting­bourne, is for sale as a whole, priced at £2.85m.

This in­cludes the 17th cen­tury seven-bed­room manor house, a fourbed­room sta­ble con­ver­sion, or­chards and a to­tal of 55 acres. Al­ter­na­tively the es­tate could be di­vided into lots, with the prin­ci­pal lot, the manor house, swimming pool and 26 acres of gar­dens and grounds priced at £1.975 mil­lion.

Buy­ers will find a front door set within a large porch that opens to a fine, pan­elled din­ing hall to the cen­tre of the house, dom­i­nated by a mag­nif­i­cent open fire­place.

An el­e­gant dou­ble as­pect draw­ing room and a more in­ti­mate sit­ting room, the smok­ing room are at the front of the house. And buy­ers will love to ex­plore the lit­tle “tele­phone room” and an orig­i­nal “milk room”, which is set on a back court­yard with the kitchen and laun­dry room.

Ed­ward Church, of agent Strutt & Parker, said: “In its 350-year his­tory, Tun­stall House has only been sold twice, with the cur­rent fam­ily hav­ing owned the prop­erty for over 200 years.”
