Maelstrom is a truly impressive property, combining traditional architectural detail with striking modern design to produce a discreet yet spectacular living space. A sculptural stainless steel staircase sweeps in to the entrance hall, setting the scene for this breathtaking home.

Maelstrom is centred on an immense open plan living space, open to the full height of the building and overlooked from a gallery. Huge sliding doors look to the gardens and this dramatic space provides the main living area, with a kitchen equipped for entertaining, and a sitting/dining room which flows through to the stunning indoor swimming pool. Observed though walls of glass the pool becomes a focal point looking through to a stone wall, reflecting light and creating a very special environment

A further sitting room is vaulted with massive windows to one end and a gallery to the other. There is also a study/library.

The luxuriously appointed master suite has a full height window overlooking the garden; a sliding door within a wall of glass opens to a galleried landing overlooking the pool, giving easy access to both this and the air conditioned gym. There is a generous dressing room and beautifully appointed en-suite bathroom. Again, vast walls of glass create a wonderful feeling of openness yet cleverly retaining privacy.

There are three more bedrooms on the first floor, each with their own distinctive design details and en-suite facilities. A fifth bedroom has the flexibility of being located on the ground floor with doors opening to the garden.

To the front of the house, located above the garaging, is a generous games room and on the lower ground floor the wonderful leisure facilities are completed with a cinema room.

This property has 2 acres of land.


The house is approached through an electric gate, with the drive arriving at an open courtyard in front of the house and garaging. The main lawn to the rear of the house provides a sheltered level terrace with landscaped banks rising to one side with a stone retaining wall.


Maelstrom House is set in a very convenient location just off Chilham village square. The village, with its attractive castle and grounds, provides a good range of shops and amenities, including a doctor’s surgery on Branch Road. Canterbury - with its excellent shopping centre, cultural interests, and well regarded schools - is also close by.

Ashford International offers frequent services to London St Pancras in around 37 minutes as well as Eurostar services to the Continent. Chilham station offers services between Ashford and Canterbury.

The M2 (Junction 7) and M20 (Junction 9) provide fast access to the southern motorway network, Gatwick and Heathrow airports. The Channel Tunnel terminal at Cheriton and Port of Dover are both within easy reach and offer frequent services to the Continent.


From Canterbury take the A28 towards Ashford. Follow signs into the village and in the square leave on Taylors Hill. Towards the bottom of the hill turn left into a private driveway and the gates to Maelstrom will be seen a little way up on the right hand side.
