Property Description

An exceptional home of quality, providing extensive facilities of over 7000 sq. ft, situated in mature landscaped grounds of just under two acres, with two separate dwellings and a Staddle barn which can all provide additional income or annexes. Please quote reference DM0223 when enquiring.

Cradled cosily by the village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe, Wallett's Court is surely one of East Kent's most elegant and important residences. The Grade II listed building, which was once a 17th-century Jacobean manor house with much earlier origins, has a real sense of authentic history, which is all part of the living experience here. That’s not to say that it’s stuck in its ways, though; to the contrary, the property is a perfect marriage of the contemporary, retaining some breath-taking period features throughout.

This wonderful residence benefits from well-proportioned reception rooms and is well suited as a family home with spacious and flexible ground and first floor accommodation, adaptable to varying domestic requirements.

The inviting entrance hall gives access to the main reception rooms, including the original Jacobean staircase. The hall leads on one side to the 32 ft sitting and dining area with impressive features such as the large inglenook fireplace. There is also a further lounge/diner including two impressive carved floor to ceiling beams. This leads through to the breakfast room with steps down to the magnificent garden & sun room areas, that has a vaulted and beamed ceiling.

The kitchen is currently laid out as a semi-professional kitchen and includes a range cooker so that if new owners want to develop a bed and breakfast business they have the facilities to do so. There is also an adjacent utility room and cloakroom.

There are three different cellars with three separate staircases. The cellar under the kitchen is an industrial fridge, the cellar under the sitting room is a wine cellar and there is a large games room as well as a storage room.

Walking up the main historic staircase is an impressive gallery landing. Doors then lead to a kitchenette and the three bedrooms all having en suite facilities with fine views across to the historic church. A corridor leading to the other wing of the house includes rare and very old murals from the 17th century as well as a cloakroom. Beyond is a double bedroom and stairs up to two smaller bedrooms on the second floor. There is also a further double bedroom and a family bathroom together with a secondary staircase that goes down to the morning room.

‘The Fallen Roof’ is a two bedroom detached dwelling boasting an open plan sitting room with a dining area, a contemporary Wren kitchen with granite work surfaces and upstairs there are two bedrooms each having en suite facilities.

‘The Stables’ is a single storey one bedroom detached dwelling and consists of a large sitting room, bedroom and shower room as well as a kitchenette.

'The Staddle Hut' includes a sitting room, small kitchen area and shower room as well as a bedroom platform above.

Both cottages and Staddle hut could be used for holiday lets and self-catering for anyone looking to have an additional income.

A true feature are the stunning grounds this property has to offer. Landscaped beautifully. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn which has been interjected by numerous plant beds, terraced seating area, all weather tennis court and an attractive ‘Arctic Cabin’ that incorporates a barbecue, seating up to 15 people.

The village of St Margarets at Cliffe offers local shopping, post office, doctor's surgery with pharmacy, newsagent/general store, health club with swimming pool, primary school and churches, whilst The Bay itself is sheltered for bathing, fishing, sailing etc. The cliff top to either side of The Bay is mainly in the care of the National Trust and offers some delightful walks. There are golf courses at nearby Kingsdown and Deal with St George's at Sandwich (the venue of the British Open).

The Cathedral City of Canterbury offers an excellent shopping centre together with leisure interest, theatres and county cricket. Excellent links to the continent via the Port of Dover, the Channel Tunnel and Eurostar from Ashford and the high speed train to London (St Pancras), 75 minutes from Martin Mill station (approx. 2 miles).
