Grade II listed, and believed to date to circa 1800, Preston House is a superb family home offering beautifully presented living space.
Set within a pleasing, symmetrical, Georgian façade, the house is approached through a pillared entrance portico where a panelled front door opens to a reception hall. To the left is the elegant dual-aspect drawing room with unusual triangular bay windows set to either side of a fireplace, which houses a wood- burning stove. Across the hall is the large study, with built-in shelving and a further fireplace.
To the rear of the hall is the kitchen/breakfast room, a generous and practical space for family living, arranged around an Aga and with ample room for a dining table. A door leads to a useful boot room/utility room with a further door leading outside to a kitchen garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is a comfortable sitting room with a fireplace; double doors from here open to an impressive conservatory which, in turn, connects back to the kitchen. These spaces work beautifully together to provide an excellent day-to-day living area. There is a cloakroom and access down to the cellar store rooms.
The attractive principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. A dressing room is situated across the landing. There are three further well-proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom with a roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. Throughout, large sash windows flood the house with light.
The charming detached Coach House sits next to the house offering superb accommodation for guests, with a generous sitting room, a further ground floor room, an attractive kitchen, two good-sized bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. At the end of the garden there is a summer house style gym and a fantastic former Drill Hall providing 1,400 sq. ft of indoor leisure space.
Planning consent has been granted for a swimming pool (Dover District Council ref: 21/01397).
This property has 0.9 acres of land.
