Man­sion with a wartime se­cret

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

You’ll need nearly £3 mil­lion to be the next proud owner of this man­sion which has views across the Ken­tish Weald and a wartime se­cret.

St­ede Court at Har­ri­et­sham is on the books of Jack­son-Stops & Staff, com­plete with a site his­tory that dates right back to the Bat­tle of Hast­ings.

On the crest of the North Downs, the main house at St­ede Court has de­vel­oped over sev­eral cen­turies and has the clas­si­cal Pal­la­dian frontage which was pop­u­lar in Bri­tish ar­chi­tec­ture from the early 17th cen­tury.

The house was req­ui­si­tioned by the army dur­ing the Sec­ond World War and is un­der­stood to have been a meet­ing place for Win­ston Churchill and Field Mar­shal Mont­gomery.

For the guide price of £2.8 mil­lion the new own­ers will have the run of five re­cep­tion rooms, eight bed­rooms and an in­door swimming com­plex.

Land­scaped grounds of 25 acres have sweep­ing lawns, clipped box hedg­ing, top­i­ary and well-filled shrub­beries. There is an im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of ma­ture trees un­der­planted with spring bulbs.
