Property Description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

Guide Price £500,000 - £550,000. Preston Hall is a stunning Grade II listed manor house dating back to 1102AD set in 2.5 acres of beautifully manicured and landscaped gardens. In 1848 Edward Ladd Betts purchased Preston Hall and demolished the former Manor House and commenced construction of the current Preston Hall in circa 1850. The manor house was owned by and resided in for over 400 years by the Culpepper family who were renowned for their royal connections. Part of the estate became the Royal British Legion Village in the 1920s and the hall itself was used as a hospital after World War II. Its most notable resident was the author George Orwell who is reputed to have spent time recuperating within the hospital. The hall was converted into 36 high spec apartments and mews houses in 2015. Varied in their layout, each property was meticulously finished and presented to the highest standard. The Heart of Kent Hospice also occupies a site on the property which opened in 1992. The grand entrance hall is simply stunning featuring ornately carved cornicing, beautiful roof lantern, oak carved staircase and galleried landing. The space is welcoming with sofas, tables and chairs to relax and entertain guests. The apartment itself is on the first floor but unattached to the other apartments with two apartments beneath it. Within, the property has been enhanced with a high spec modern kitchen featuring granite worktops, wall mounted lights all on a dimmer switch and integrated appliances including hob, oven, microwave, washing machine, fridge freezer and dishwasher. The living room has wooden flooring, a feature corner fireplace with marble effect surround and stunning views over landscaped gardens and the North Kent Downs and beyond. The main bedroom has fitted mirrored sliding wardrobes and its own en-suite shower room. There is a further single bedroom and a bathroom with shower over the bath.
