Full property description

A magnificent and utterly unique Grade II Listed barn conversion, offering over 3400 sq. ft of spacious and versatile accommodation in the idyllic village location of Ickham. This characterful five-bedroom residence has a wealth of quirky features and reflects the current owners love for art and reclaimed original pieces. The property offers vast open plan spaces, huge windows, and vaulted ceilings to create an incredible sense of light and space.

The main entrance brings you through the pretty garden to a solid wood front door which opens into a wonderful open plan entrance hall with an exposed brick wall and stone flooring that runs throughout.

To the right, original French doors open onto a spectacular vaulted kitchen/breakfast room. This area feels particularly sociable with lovely views over the garden, a wood burning stove set around some casual seating and a breakfast bar. The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive array of traditionally styled cherry wood wall and floor units, set around a range of integrated appliances, including a double cooker set beneath a beautiful bressummer.

To the left of the entrance hall, you will find additional living space with wonderfully high vaulted ceilings and an impressive oak spiral staircase. Although this beautiful room is open plan, it has been divided to create areas for formal dining, enjoying music and a sitting area perfect for relaxing. Here you will find a stunning inglenook fireplace that encompasses a large wood-burning stove, twinned with the underfloor heating over the oak flooring, this area is wonderfully cosy.

Off the main living area there are two additional rooms, each with their own bathrooms. One is used as an elegant study whilst the other is a charming guest room. The main bedroom on the first floor reached via the feature staircase, is a striking room with views over the garden. There are bespoke wardrobes, and a luxurious en-suite with a double marble vanity sink.

Original stone steps descend into the west wing of the house, which could potentially offer a self-contained annexe to a relative or older children who are looking to be more independent. This area has a separate access, and offers a bathroom, reception room and a small utility room. Stairs rise to the first floor where one will find a further two double bedrooms.


The garden combines a mixture of stone patio and neatly laid lawn, bordered by sleepers that contain pretty shrubs and herbs. Seating areas are dotted around the garden allowing you to make the most of this south facing sunny garden. This landscaped garden is perfectly square and is approx. 40ft x 40ft. A garden shed sits to the side of the garden and access to the parking spaces at the rear where one will find a gravelled driveway.


The Treasury is situated right in the heart of highly regarded Ickham village, which lies 5 miles southeast of the city of Canterbury. This picturesque location has many well-preserved listed buildings, with an interesting mix of architecture, including the 11th-century church of St. John the Evangelist. There is a popular dining pub, the Duke William, and a Spa retreat. Ickham also has a village hall, used as a venue for a range of activities, and a regular bus service to and from Canterbury. The village is surrounded by some beautiful countryside, with numerous footpaths, making this an ideal location for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits.

The adjoining village of Wickhambreaux also has a church, a public house (The Rose Inn) and a well-regarded primary school, rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted. The larger village of Littlebourne just a mile away, benefits from a post office, shop, a primary school, a church, and a GP practice, whilst nearby Bekesbourne is home to Howletts Zoo, along with a mainline train station which connects with Canterbury East station.

The cathedral city of Canterbury is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, with a thriving city centre offering a wide array of High Street brands alongside a diverse mix of independent retailers, cafes, and international restaurants. The city also offers a fine selection of sporting, leisure, and recreational amenities, including the refurbished Marlowe Theatre.

Canterbury has an excellent choice of educational amenities, ranging from Grammar schools to well-regarded private schools and three universities. Canterbury offers a regular rail service to London Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street and the high-speed rail link connects with Londons St Pancras from Canterbury West station in just under one hour.
