Yes this beautiful house has been on the market for some time at a price of £2.4m though valued in 2011 by HSBC at £2.8m. Due to personal reasons we decided yesterday to reduce the price to encourage a quick sale and a price to sell at £1.75m with no negotiations. Most of the furniture will be included as well.
So about the house. Originally built in 1616 by the DeBois family it is a Jacobean Manor house based in the village of Willesborough very close to Ashford in Kent. Just 36 minutes to central London on the high speed train service, five minutes from the M20, 30 minutes to the beautiful Kent coast and just two hours from Paris with Eurotunnel and Eurostar on the doorstep.
The house sits in three acres of beautiful gardens. The house has ten bedrooms and ten bathrooms, a reception hall, dining hall, drawing room, bar, office, kitchen, separate small dining room, utility room. cellars, conservatory. Around 10,500 sq ft
The conservatory also has a swimming pool but it is currently covered with a removable wooden floor all pumps are still working so reinstatement work is minimal.
There is a huge brick built Victorian stable block that is almost 2,000 sq ft and has lapsed planning for conversion into a house, easily reinstated or indeed could be converted to around another eight bedroom suites or a spa ……………….
There is a walled garden that is also prime for further development.
We are selling as residential but we used to run a wedding business and boutique hotel along with corporate days for some prestigious Kent based businesses. We did little marketing but soon became voted Kents best wedding venue two years running and were awarded five stars from the AA. We closed the business some time ago but have retained all the licenses and all planning so if that is what you want you can start again from day one.
We are not selling a business but we are happy to discuss potential but we will not enter into deals for a business that we no longer have. That has been the problem for us, we are selling a house, all interested parties seem to want to run a business and that is fine but we are not part of the deal neither will we take ‘part payment’ as has recently been offered by international buyers. We simply want to sell.
This is a bargain an absolute no brainer…. if you want to discuss further with any questions please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 07854 067912.
Happy to talk and to answer any questions I just want to sell……
