Elegance and real quality
his elegant and well presented four-bedroom attached Queen Anne townhouse is in a prominent position in the heart of Staplehurst. Understood to date from 1703 it is a Grade II listed house which underwent gentrification in the early 19th century. It was described in James Turner’s autobiography Seven Gardens for Catherine, and was also mentioned in Pevsner. There are many period features including sash windows with original shutters, moulded skirtings, ceiling roses and attractive open fireplaces with richly embossed and moulded surrounds, and elegant staircases. There is a pretty back garden and secure, gated parking for two cars. Jeremy St Clair George of Calcutt Maclean Standen said: “Vine House is an exceptional and unspoilt period town house brimming with fine period features, where elegance and quality are second to none.” For more details contact the agent on 01580 713250.
