    An historic house of considerable architectural importance – one of the oldest inhabited houses in the countryEntrance hall3 Reception roomsKitchenCellar4 Bedrooms, bathrooms and shower roomOutbuilding comprising office and utility roomGardenGarage and parking areaEntrance hall \ Drawing room \ Dining room \ Family room/study \ Kitchen \ Cellar \ 4 Bedrooms \ 3 Bathrooms \ Shower room \ Outbuilding comprising office and utility room \ Garden \ Garage \ Parking areaThe Old Canonry has a fascinating and intriguing history and is Grade I Listed. In 1282, Archbishop Peckham founded Wingham College and The Old Canonry is believed to have been used as accommodation for minor canons; the undercroft and part of the house dates from that period. The bulk of the remainder of the house is believed to date from the 15th Century and is a good example of Tudor architecture. The interior is equally impressive, with magnificent timber framing and a particularly fine dragon beam in the drawing room. The dining room is a light room, a great place for intimate or formal dining. The kitchen is to the rear of the house and has lovely views over the garden.Off the kitchen is the family room, a relaxing space – ideal for teenagers – with a door to the outside. The hallway, off which is a bathroom, has access to the first floor, where there is a bedroom and a “jack and jill” bathroom, which is shared with the master bedroom. This is a magnificent room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed crown post; the room has its own private staircase from the drawing room. Bedroom 3, another characterful room, and bedroom 4 are accessed off a staircase that rises from the dining room. There is a further bathroom at this level.Outside, a newly converted outbuilding provides an office and a utility room. The gardens are a delightful haven, giving high levels of privacy. Recently landscaped, there is a wide terrace immediately to the rear of the house giving onto an area of lawn. Well stocked raised beds give a good display of colour throughout the seasons. To the side of the house are a very useful, secure parking area and a good sized garage.
