"This amazing house has been in our family for the past 45 years and it was a wonderful place to grow up. Over the years it has been a great place for entertaining friends and family. We have had memorable celebrations in the gardens such as a wedding, christenings and even a village fete for more than two hundred people. Sadly it is time for us to pass on the baton and we hope that new owners will enjoy developing the property and bring it back to its former glory.

The village of Staple is a very friendly place and includes a village hall and recreation ground as well as the lovely old quintessential English Black Pig pub and restaurant with rooms. The attractive village of Wingham is not far away with its good primary school, pubs and shops while Gibsons farm shop can equal Harrods and Selfridges food hall in terms of the quality of produce available and wine enthusiasts can visit the award winning Barnsole Vineyard. We are less than five miles from the medieval Cinque Port town of Sandwich with its mainline station, championship golf courses, bars, restaurants and individual shops and only nine miles from Canterbury with its historic buildings, theatres, high street stores, three universities and a selection of top class private and grammar schools".

Historical Note:

The original plans drawn up by the architect Harry R Newton, (son of Sir John Newton, miniature painter to William IV and Queen Victoria and a collateral descendant of Sir Isaac Newton) are available to be viewed. The Rectory represents the birth of the Victorian architectural housing design which is still alive in modern housing today. Newton ingeniously designed his building around a ‘Zig-Zag concept that can be seen today. He was influenced by Pugin who built The Grange in Ramsgate 20 years previously and was best known for his design for the interior of the Houses of Parliament.
