Full property description

A wonderful but rare opportunity to own to own a beautiful Grade II Listed Victorian three-bedroom property with a separate established business which is currently run as a highly successful coffee shop located in the centre of the historic town of Sandwich.

A traditional styled Victorian house brimming with period features such as wood panelling, original fireplaces, refurbished sash windows and intricate architrave that flourish over the 1100sq.ft of accommodation. The character within this home has been embraced by the current owners who have lovingly renovated throughout and updated the kitchen and bathrooms to an excellent standard.

The house is currently used as a very popular holiday let and could offer an excellent investment opportunity but would equally make a wonderful home for someone who is looking for a convenient location in the heart of this medieval town.

The solid front door opens into a lovely entrance hall with an original internal door that leads into a charming sitting room. The ornate gas fireplace sits central to the chimney breast and double wooden doors open into the kitchen breakfast room.

The kitchen has recently been updated and offers contemporary dark units which complement the light work tops and modern tiles, doors open into an enchanting courtyard which is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine.

Stairs from the hallway rise to the first floor where one will find a large landing that leads to three double bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, stylish ensuite bathroom and enjoys wonderful views overlooking King Street and the beautiful gardens in the church grounds.


The caf known as the Goats That Dance, currently number one on trip advisor, has a separate entrance, with inside seating and in addition also operates a takeaway service through the sash window which makes a perfect serving hatch.

This is presently let out to a very successful and enthusiastic individual who has been on a rolling lease contract and could leave with a months notice, she has put her own stamp of this vibrant, bustling coffee shop, however if one was to be looking for a new exciting venture this coffee shop could offer a wonderful opportunity to potential new owners. There is currently an agreement with the church opposite for the coffee shop to arrange their tables and chairs within the attractive grounds, permission would need to be granted for a new owner however there is also seating inside the coffee shop. Produce is sourced locally, allowing this business to work sustainably and ethically.

The coffee shop has a flying freehold above which is the main part of the property and both are on separate titles, there may be the option to sell the coffee shop and house separately.
