Eastling House Kent, ME13

about

Originally built around 1545 with later additions, this private estate of around 1800 acres is located just 49 miles from central London.

Included on the site is a chapel, park, cricket pitch and extensive woodland. The house has an authentic interior which has not been subjected to extensive renovation, and contains many of the original furnishings.

There is an extensive library and the ground floor includes a large relatively unfurnished room. Many parts of the house also offer quirky atmospheric backgrounds for creative photography – for instance, the vaulted cellars, the yellow bathroom at top of the tower, the chapel, the cricket ground and pavilion etc.

A grand entrance hall with red carpet sweeping staircase is full of grandeur. A large open fire, the columns, the stained glass window at the top of the staircase, the original portraits that adorn the walls, and the huge ceiling height space all together make for an imposing entrance to this beautiful mansion house.

The formal dining room has a huge tapestry wall which has been beautifully kept to retain great detail with very little wear over the years. An open fire adds warmth to the huge space.

The sitting rooms vary in size and décor. The notable room is the grey room with it’s stone fireplace, open fire, original carpets, gold gilded picture frames, crystal chandelier and large windows.

The pictures provided show only a part of this beautiful property, but they give an indication of the style and feel of the entire house.
