Estate agent Strutt & Parker suggests it would be ideal for an extended family, or to develop as a bed and breakfast or holiday lettings business.

Buyers will love that while the house is well maintained, the 1930s features are untouched, including large sash windows, stained glass, high ceilings, high skirtings, picture rails and decorative ceiling roses.

Oak and leaded light glazed doors from the porch lead into the large hall with a beautiful oak staircase.

Drawing room, dining room and a sitting room, all with original fireplaces look out over the back garden and have original fitted cupboards.

The kitchen is at the front of the house and leads to a pantry, laundry room, boot room and cloakroom.

The house has gas central heating.

There’s a double garage accessed from an in-out driveway and a modern swimming pool is in an orangery. The garden is very private, with a summer house and mature trees.

Folkestone West offers High Speed services to London St Pancras in 52 minutes as well as services to Charing Cross and Waterloo.

Joe Charlton, of Strutt & Parker, says: "Bromlegh is a superb example of a classic 1930s property, with substantial and elegant rooms, large sash windows providing ample levels of natural light, and fine detailing inside and out.
