FULFIL your New Year’s resolutions in this stunning six-bed property that predates the Domesday Book and comes complete with a gym and swimming pool for a cool £4.5m.
Incredible images show the 20,000-square-foot, Grade II-listed main residence and the 20-acre grounds from above, the separate three-bed Victorian lodge house and the well manicured lawns and water features that adorn the gardens.
Other striking shots show the huge dining room, cosy living rooms and a private bar as well as a home gym, pool and sauna.
Ringleton Manor is located in Woodnesborough, Sandwich, Kent and is currently listed by Strutt and Parker for £4.5m.
“Mentioned in The Domesday Book and set in a little known and relatively undiscovered part of rural East Kent, The Ringleton Manor Estate is located in gently undulating countryside between Canterbury and Sandwich,” states the listing.
“Approached over a quiet country lane that terminates at the automatic gates of the house, a long, private drive with well-tended parkland on each side leads up to the principal house. This estate offers a wonderful opportunity for the purchaser to acquire a compact, manageable estate with excellent ancillary accommodation.
“The main house is a most handsome Grade II Listed building, the core of which dates from the 17th century and which was significantly extended and improved in the 19th century with the addition of the glorious symmetrical red brick façade on the south eastern elevation.
“Set in the middle of the estate, the house benefits from high levels of privacy and seclusion. Arranged to provide excellent family accommodation and with a fine range of reception rooms there are many opportunities for entertaining on both a formal and a more informal basis.”
Ringleton Manor could be the perfect place to fulfil those New Year fitness resolutions thanks to its extensive gym, pool and sauna areas.
“Ringleton Manor has been the subject of extensive expenditure over the past 40 years and has one of the most outstanding leisure complexes,” continues the listing.
“Built to resemble a traditional Kentish Barn the principal area is given over to a magnificent Roman-style heated, mosaic lined, 17m ozone swimming pool that does not require significant chemical treatments. To enjoy the pool to its maximum the complex is equipped with twin changing rooms, a kitchen, Nordic sauna and Turkish Bath, sun room and spa pool.”
