This attractive detached former care home is understood to have been built in the 18th Century and boasts plenty of period features. It is situated on a site measuring 0.42 hectares (1.06 acres) with surrounding gardens and a large car park. This substantial building offers potential for continued use; sub-division into self-contained flats or, perhaps, an alternative scheme, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.

It is located in a desirable area with good access to the A2 and is situated equidistant between Dover and the city of Canterbury.


The main building comprises 20 bedrooms, the majority with en-suites, offices, kitchen and communal areas, as well as a self-contained two-bedroom flat on the second floor.
