The Old Alms House is a spectacular Grade II listed, 15th-century Medieval former almshouse having been sympathetically renovated and extended. The property accessed via a quiet country lane now provides a stunning home in an enviable rural setting with grounds extending to approx. 1 acre (0.40 hectares) with a separate detached cottage, The Granary which is a completely self-contained property that could be ideal as an annexe or can provide a substantial letting income. The accommodation of The Old Alms House incorporates an impressive array of exposed timbers and brickwork. On the ground floor is a large kitchen/breakfast room comprehensively fitted with a range of bespoke units and cabinetry. There is spectacular living accommodation with an attractive south facing sitting room having exposed brick fireplace and chimney breast. The property has then been impressively extended to the side forming a large, south facing, living/dining room constructed principally of a reclaimed oak wagon lodge with stunning vaulted ceiling and exposed timber-work. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, one with an ensuite facility plus the family bathroom. Much of the ground floor has impressive limestone flooring with underfloor heating. On the first floor are two further bedrooms both with well-equipped ensuite shower rooms. The property benefits from gas fired central heating via a 2000 litre Calor gas tank with an 'automatic' service setting for an uninterrupted supply situated underground to the front of the property.

The Granary
An impressively appointed detached cottage situated in the grounds with its own driveway and garden. On the ground floor is an open-plan living/dining room/kitchen area attractively and comprehensively fitted with a range of integral appliances and French doors opening onto the garden. There is a bedroom and shower room also on the ground floor whilst on the first floor are two further bedrooms and the bathroom.

From the road, vehicular access is gained onto the driveway from which The Granary driveway is in turn accessed. The drive then extends past The Old Alms House, through a five-bar gate onto a shingled parking and turning area with access to the triple bay open fronted oak-framed garage building. There is also an adjacent former stable building. The Granary has a concrete drive and lawned garden with timber shed, bin store and picket fence to the side. To the front of The Old Alms House is a lawned garden with the underground LPG tank, former well (with safety grill) and a path with timber pergola and mature wisteria leading to the house. There is inset lighting and a path extends to the side with a paved and bricked seating area adjacent to the living room and opening onto the garden. The garden then extends into the former paddock which is predominantly grassed and could be reinstated as a paddock if required and to the rear it links to the stable area and garage/driveway.

The property is set in an enviable location, situated in a quiet country lane, in the small rural Hamlet of Wingham Well surrounded by lovely farmland and countryside providing pleasant walking, riding and cycling. The nearby village of Wingham has a comprehensive selection of local facilities and a highly regarded primary school. There are two pubs in the village and the surrounding countryside provides lovely walking and cycling. Easy access can be gained to the Cathedral City of Canterbury, the A2 to Dover and the Channel Ports plus the M2 and M20 motorways.
