Westbroke House is a fine and elegant country house with great presence. Set in a secluded position just outside historic Lydd on Romney Marsh, the property provides an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of this unique landscape. Though of uncertain historical...

origins, the house has evolved over the years to become a wonderful and significant property. The classic Georgian appearance of the front façade is coupled with a Dutch gable to the rear, typical of the early Georgian period or before. Together with the pretty period outbuildings, the house and environs have an enchanting feel. Owned by the same family for many years the house would now benefit from, and is deserving of, some extensive renovation, giving the new owner an opportunity to update and cherish this impressive and special home. The accommodation is arranged off a central hall from which an impressive staircase rises to the top of the house. The principal reception rooms in the form of a drawing, sitting and dining room are accessed from here. The drawing room has French doors to the gardens as does a study; the rooms enjoy high ceilings and large sash windows as well as original fireplaces. The kitchen is served by a utility room and there is a boiler room. The first floor offers extensive accommodation. The principal bedroom has a dressing room as does one other of the seven further bedrooms. There is one family bathroom, with potential, given the plentiful number of rooms, to balance the accommodation and create further facilities. The second floor has two more bedrooms. With loft space in-between, a secondary staircase leads to interconnecting attic rooms. The property is approached via a drive, which continues to the outbuildings and provides ample parking. The stables form a delightful courtyard with garaging and a cottage either side. The cottage has undergone some recent refurbishment and provides a self-contained living space. Opposite, a carport sits next to the granary, with storage on the ground floor and external stairs leading to a room above.The garden lies mainly to the southeast and has been laid out to give a formal structure to complement a house of such substance. Clipped hedging and topiary frame the paths and terraces and a summer house sits to one corner. There are many mature trees and a wooded walk gives further interest. A sheltered vegetable garden has a superb greenhouse tucked behind the granary. To the northeast are paddocks providing pasture land.
