Property of the Day: The Old Rectory, Kent

A converted Georgian rectory in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

THE PROPERTY: A Grade II-listed Georgian rectory that has undergone an extensive refurbishment over the past decade.

THE LOCATION: Surrounded by beautiful parkland, the property is situated in Acrise – a rural and unspoilt corner of east Kent that is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are local amenities in the nearby villages of Elham and Lyminge, or more extensive leisure and shopping opportunities in the city of Canterbury.

THE INTERIOR: The drawing-room is ideal for indoor-outdoor living, thanks to its triple-aspect sash windows and doors that lead out to the veranda. Other particularly attractive spaces include the entrance hall, which is painted in a trompe-l’œil panelled style; the cosy library with fitted bookshelves; and the handcrafted fitted kitchen.

WHY WE LOVE IT: The veranda is perfect for alfresco dining on a summer’s day, and the wisteria-clad entrance makes for a lovely approach.
