Believed to date from the 1870s, Beauchamps was designed by the renowned Victorian architect George Devey. Noted for his work on country houses and mansions in the late 19th century, Devey used design aspects from earlier centuries to create interesting and quality homes, and worked on many projects commissioned by the Rothschild family. His style is regarded as a forerunner to the Arts & Crafts school of design. Whilst a programme of refurbishment would now be beneficial, the property offers significant potential. The setting is very tranquil, backing on to farmland and Beauchamps Wood, with mature boundaries offering complete seclusion and privacy.
A weather-boarded, gabled extension on the south-eastern aspect houses one of the reception areas and also offers a second entry-point to the property, in addition to a porch to the north-east. There are three further reception rooms on the ground floor, two having fireplaces, with the dining room being centrally situated at the foot of a timber staircase. The kitchen/breakfast room is adjacent, with adjoining pantry storage, and features an ornate fireplace surround with tiled hearth. A conservatory, a bathroom and cloakroom, complete the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, one with wash basin, as well as a family bathroom and a cloakroom. A second staircase gives access to two attic level bedrooms.
This property has 0.5 acres of land.
With trees to the boundaries of the wrap-around gardens and open countryside beyond, the property is set in an idyllic haven. There are areas of lawn with meandering pathway, and paving adjoins the house, with a stepped terrace just outside the conservatory benefitting from the south-westerly aspect. Borders and beds contain mature shrubs and climbing plants scramble over a timber archway which leads onto an area of garden featuring a decorative, circular fountain.
A gravelled driveway provides parking and gives access to the detached garage, with a good-sized workshop outbuilding just beyond.
Nonington is located in the triangle between Dover, Sandwich and Canterbury and enjoys easy access to all three towns via the A2 and the A256, and together they deliver a broad range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities.
