Three Kings is an intriguing Grade II Listed townhouse. Historically the property was one of the many pubs in Sandwich, from which it takes its name. Although modest to look at from the front, the house extends up most of Three Kings Yard and provides really spacious and elegant accommodation, which was significantly updated and improved about 12 years ago to provide very comfortable living. There is a charming walled garden and a detached garage with further parking.
The bright, high-ceilinged reception hall leads to a charming study/library with fitted bookshelves on two walls. The hall continues to the lovely drawing room, with a heavily beamed ceiling and a deep inglenook with fitted wood-burner; west-facing windows flood the room with light. There is a door to stairs down to the cellar with fitted strong room. Beyond the drawing room is the elegant dining room, with exposed timber beams and west-facing windows. Glazed double doors open to the adjoining conservatory.
Steps lead up to the adjacent well-appointed kitchen, which is well fitted with a range of wall and floor cupboards as well as ample integrated appliances, including sleek induction hobs and Neff double ovens. There is access through to the garden. The conservatory provides a splendid extra dining, entertaining or relaxing space, with handsome natural plaster walls and doors opening out onto the beautifully stocked garden.
Two sets of stairs lead up to the first floor. Centrally sited is a bright sitting room with a large brick-built inglenook fireplace and wood-burning stove. A useful preparation kitchen/utility room is close by and sits adjacent to two of the three well-proportioned and charming bedrooms. The bedrooms are served by the family shower room. The principal suite is to the rear and has its own en suite shower room, as well as a luxurious dressing room with bespoke built-in wardrobes. Stairs lead up to a large attic room with potential for a number of uses.
The property is set back, with a charming paved front terrace enclosed via a low brick wall with cast iron railings.
The private rear garden has been professionally designed and provides a peaceful haven. Rambling and climbing roses, together with a variety of shrubs and herbaceous plants, give year round colour and interest. A paved terrace adjoining the conservatory has plenty of room for an outside table and chairs the perfect spot for alfresco dining with friends or family.
At the end of Three Kings Yard is a detached single garage and parking space.
