East Court Manor, Chalk, Gravesend, Kent
East Court Manor is situated just on the eastern outskirts of the small village of Chalk and occupies a rural position, a short distance east of the larger town of Gravesend, at the edge of upland which borders the Thames Marshes to the north. East Court Manor stands with frontage to a rural lane and is within a short distance of the A226 running between the Medway Towns and Gravesend. Both provide a significant range of facilities and amenities including connections to the A2(M) and links to the south-eastern motorway network. Mainline railway stations are within easy driving distance at Ebbsfleet within 5 miles, which provides high speed links to London, the Kent coast and Gravesend.
East Court Manor is an elegant double fronted Georgian Manor House believed to date from around 1725 and is Listed Grade II as being of architectural and historic importance. The house is constructed with elegant, pointed brickwork elevations under hipped pitched roofs with valley gutters. The main window openings are fitted with sliding sashes, typical of the period and large dormer windows provide light to large, spacious rooms throughout the ground, first and second floors.
The Manor House is dated throughout but provides large, light and airy living accommodation extending in total to 4,865ft². Exposed timber ceiling beams feature throughout rooms on both the Ground and First Floor adding to its character. The house is entirely liveable although utility services, fixtures and fittings are not up to modern day requirements. The house has large, spacious rooms throughout and spans over three floors. Please see the Property Particulars for details of accommodation and Floor Plans.
Outside there are lawned and landscaped gardens to the front, side and rear of the property with an in/out entrance drive to the front of the house. There are various outbuildings to the east which include Stables & Stores (1,288ft²) and a Garage (1,825ft²). Both of these buildings are situated to the east of the Manor House and have potential for conversion into either ancillary accommodation, office or general development to benefit the residential amenity of the property, subject to the necessary planning consents. Please note, the Stables and Stores are likely to form part of the Grade II Listing due to their age and their link to the Manor. Please see the Property Particulars for layout details and Floor Plans.
