Chantry House is a classically elegant Grade II listed Georgian house full of charm and character. The current owners have significantly enhanced the accommodation with the addition of a light and airy principal reception room to the rear of the house. The juxtaposition of the more intimate original rooms with the new addition works wonderfully well creating
A welcoming entrance hall which gives access to a well-proportioned sitting room on the left and a good-sized dining room on the right. Both are graceful and elegant rooms with original fireplaces. The superb, principal room at the rear of the house, has bi-fold doors – giving the feeling of bringing the garden into the house. Sky lights provide an abundance of natural light. What better place could there be for family gatherings or more formal entertaining.
The generous kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of bespoke wall and floor units, including a central island and modern integrated appliances. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a fitted utility room with cloakroom. Stairs from the utility room descend to a generous cellar.
The spacious master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Also on the first floor are two further bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a sizeable, contemporary family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower. The property’s two remaining well-proportioned bedrooms and a second family bathroom are situated on the second floor, with lovely roofscape views across the town.
Conveniently located in the centre of the historic town of Sandwich, Chantry House stands about 150 yards from the river and the picturesque quayside within the Conservation Area of the ancient Cinque Port.

Westwood Cross provides additional shopping and leisure facilities and a full range of amenities can be found in Deal and Canterbury. There are excellent educational facilities in the area, including the Sir Roger Manwood's School.
Being just a few miles from the Kent coast and Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve, the property's location provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy the surrounding countryside with wonderful walking and excellent cycling routes. There are numerous quality golf courses locally, including Royal St George’s.
The local station offers High Speed connections to London, and the A256 joins the A2/M2 and M20/A20 at Dover. The area has good access to the Continent.
The enclosed walled garden, of excellent proportions for a townhouse has side access from the High Street. The garden has been landscaped with a Mediterranean planting scheme in mind – with trees and shrubs giving shade but more importantly creating an oasis of privacy and tranquillity in the centre of the town.
A large paved terrace across the full width of the house provides the perfect spot for entertaining and al fresco dining. A pizza oven adds to the lure of eating outside! There is a useful garden shed
