- Download Brochure
Wayborough Manor is a magnificent Grade II* Listed property providing more than 4,000 square feet of beautifully presented accommodation, full of period features. Understood to date to the 15th century, the house was originally four framed bays, later evolving to a classic E shape. Externally the house is most picturesque, having part exposed timber framing with plaster infill underbuilt with brick and flint with mullioned windows.
A substantial wood-panelled door opens to a hallway with flagstone flooring. Through open studworks this gives way to a fine drawing room beyond with a stone fireplace and large windows overlooking the gardens. The room has beautiful exposed timbers, wide floorboards and panelled walls.
Either side of the drawing room are two further reception rooms, a comfortable sitting room with a fireplace and a door leading to the garden, and a double aspect dining room. To the front of the house is a useful study.
The kitchen/breakfast room is arranged around a central island and is fitted with a range of units under granite work surfaces. The room has exposed brick walls and beamed ceilings; there is also a generous larder and a useful utility room.
A splendid staircase rises to the first floor where there are five bedrooms, including the generous double aspect principal bedroom which has a dressing room and en suite bathroom. The second bedroom is also extremely spacious, and has stairs leading to a separate store room and attic which could perhaps be converted to an en suite or dressing room subject to any necessary consents. The three remaining bedrooms are all doubles. There is also a family bathroom.
This property has 1.26 acres of land.
Wrought iron gates open to the driveway, lined with mature yew trees leading to the house and plenty of parking in front of the garaging.
The formal gardens provide a lovely setting for the house being laid to level lawns with mature hedge and tree borders. To one corner of the lawn to the front of the house is a summer house which has power and a cloakroom. A herringbone brick terrace wraps around the south and east side of the house. Low retaining walls and steps lead to a further expanse of level lawn.
Wayborough Manor is situated close to the village of Minster, and within easy reach of the coastal towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs, which offer a wide range of leisure, shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the popular Westwood Cross shopping centre and cinemas. There are a number of good and outstanding-rated schools in the surrounding towns and villages.
