A picturesque Grade II Listed timber-framed cottage

Best offers by 12noon Thursday 8th July 2021.

Yew Tree Cottage is set in the heart of the Lees Court Estate close to the original mansion. The popular village of Sheldwich Lees provides a peaceful setting, with a strong community, surrounded by beautiful countryside yet being exceptionally well placed for access to roads and train links. Available on the open market for the first time, Yew Tree Cottage presents a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful home.

Listed Grade II, the cottage is a charming timber-framed property, full of character with delightful painted brick and traditional weather-boarded elevations. The accommodation is arranged off an entrance hall to the west side of the house. On entering, a striking staircase divides to either side and, passing substantial exposed timbers, rises to the first floor.

A good sized kitchen/dining room with an adjoining utility room sits to one end of the house. With a tiled floor, fitted units and a pretty period cupboard to one corner, this bright, double aspect room has ample space for a table in front of the deep brick fireplace. A door leads through to the generous double reception room with exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace; the room has an outlook across the garden. From the reception room there is access to a porch and front door as well as a door returning to the main hall, off which there is a shower room.

Three bedrooms are situated on the first floor. The principal bedroom and adjoining family bathroom are accessed from one staircase and the two further bedrooms via the other.

This property has 2.52 acres of land.


The property is approached off a country lane on to a drive and parking adjacent to a timber garage building. The property has wonderful open views over neighbouring farmland and the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with hedged boundaries and interspersed with trees.

The grounds provide a charming setting for the cottage and include both an area of paddock and woodland providing a superb balance.


The property is situated within the Lees Court Estate, in the village of Sheldwich Lees, with its Ofsted “Outstanding” primary school, cricket ground, active village hall and church. There is easy access to the M2 (Junction 6) and to Ebbsfleet International, which offers High Speed trains to London St Pancras as well as Eurostar services.

Faversham has a well-regarded grammar school and a mainline railway station providing commuter services to London. Canterbury provides for cultural interests and offers an excellent shopping centre, highly regarded schools, colleges and two universities.


From M2 (Junction 6): Exit and take the A251 Ashford road southbound. After 1.8 miles turn left into Lees Court Road. Continue past the village green and the cricket pitch, and the house will be found a short distance after woodland on the right
