Named after the large coastal wading bird, the whimbrel, the Grade II listed home is in Wingham, near Canterbury. It is now on the market with Charles Bainbridge Estate Agents priced at £235,000.

It has an external door leading to a small lobby. On the ground floor there is a 13ft double aspect sitting room with inglenook fireplace, woodburning stove and a bressumer beam. The sitting room has a door to the garden. A second door from the sitting room leads to a well designed and pretty kitchen with units built to suit a sloped ceiling. The up-to-date units are cream, the floor is tiled and an integrated oven and extractor hood is set into a corner.

Head up to the first floor to find a light and airy dining room with a fine fireplace.

Also on the first floor is one of the bedrooms and the family bathroom, which has a separate shower cubicle.

On the top floor are the final two bedrooms, both built into the eaves and with sloped ceiling. This floor has lots of useful built-in storage. The house is exceptionally well maintained and is in very good decorative order. It is in the centre of Wingham, set back from passers by.
