5 bed Semi-detached House
Willesborough, Ashford, TN24
Guide Price £450,000 - £475,000. Hewitt House is a grand, grade II listed, Edwardian property with Victorian additions and a fascinating history believed to date back to the 18th Century. The earliest mention of the house suggests it was once a B&B which served soldiers returning from World War II. The building was then purchased and used as a school until approximately 19 years ago. Those that aspire to Edwardian and Victorian buildings would completely appreciate the period features which are in abundance throughout the property. Over a seven year period this glorious house has been entirely refurbished to a very high spec with the co-operation of the Conservation officer and strict building control every step of the way. The restoration, with the finest attention to detail, has taken in quality reclaimed materials which have been sourced locally. The entire roof has been removed and replaced with Kent Peg tiles, all oak timbers are English oak recovered from the storm of 1987. The property has been rewired and replumbed with a new heating system which has mains pressure to serve the new bathrooms. A magnificent reception hall with original ornate plaster coving leads to three reception rooms and a superb kitchen/diner, whilst the first floor has five double bedrooms. There is a modern en-suite, a separate shower room, upstairs WC, ground floor WC and a separate family bathroom.
