Homebuyers wanting a house with a unique selling point could be hard pushed to find one better than this five bedroom, beamed property.
Built in the 13th century, Harfleet House is part of the longest unbroken stretch of timber-framed buildings in England, and sits in the Cinque Port of Sandwich.
For sale through Regal Estates for offers in the region of £925,000, at one time the Grade II listed property was owned by wealthy wool merchant, William Harfleet.
Standing on Strand Street, the jettied design of the buildings allowed merchants to make the most of the floor space on upper levels, without blocking the passage of carts and goods on the quaysides.
More recently used as bed & breakfast accommodation, it is spread over three floors plus an under croft (a stone cellar) which dates back to Norman times and has exposed beams throughout, with a King Post vaulted ceiling and some charmingly uneven floors.
