Tim­ber-framed house drip­ping in history

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

A re­stored four-bed­room house on the mar­ket is on one of the long­est rows of tim­ber-framed build­ings in the coun­try.

Tem­per­ance House, at Strand Street, Sand­wich, is for sale with Strutt & Parker.

The skil­fully ren­o­vated, Grade ll-listed, 16th-cen­tury town­house has a wealth of pe­riod fea­tures. There is a bright re­cep­tion room, cur­rently used for din­ing and en­ter­tain­ing, which is en­tered through dou­ble doors from the street.

A door from here leads through to the exquisitely re­stored draw­ing/sit­ting room, with wood pan­elling along one wall be­lieved to date to the 16th cen­tury.

The spa­cious kitchen has been re­stored to its for­mer glory with a work­ing bread oven and a re­stored flint and rag­stone wall.

On the first floor, the spec­tac­u­lar mas­ter bed­room is open to the eaves and has an en suite shower and dress­ing area.

Across the land­ing are a spa­cious dou­ble bed­room and a gen­er­ous shower room.

The sec­ond floor com­prises two fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms and an of­fice space with plumb­ing, giv­ing po­ten­tial for con­ver­sion to an en suite, if de­sired.

The picturesque south­fac­ing court­yard gar­den has space for a ta­ble and chairs for out­door en­ter­tain­ing. There is a use­ful gar­den store and a gate to the rear gives ac­cess to neigh­bour­ing Love Lane.

Can­ter­bury is 13 miles away and Deal is six miles away.

Tem­per­ance House is on the mar­ket for of­fers in the re­gion of £575,000.
