Elizabethan Manor in Kent with Gardens by Gertrude Jekyll



From Country Life:

Enhancements, alterations and additions include the redecoration of the entire timber-frame house, the upgrading of utilities and bathrooms, the conversion of a rare twin-roundel kiln oast house to versatile secondary accommodation, garaging and store rooms, the addition of a south-facing swimming pool and the landscaping and restoration of the beautifully structured gardens, designed by Gertrude Jekyll for Lady Rhonda in 1925. Encircling the property, the gardens are fully enclosed, with privacy provided by the almost eight acres in which the manor sits, including a large paddock with a stable block to the north of the house.

In all, Stonepitts Manor offers almost 9,400sq ft of elegant accommodation on three floors, including a colourful Great Hall, two further reception rooms, a study, games room, kitchen/breakfast room and various domestic offices on the ground floor, with a sitting room /music room, two bedroom suites, four further bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and a further bedroom suite and attic storage on the second floor.
