Victorian Manor House in Gravesend Reimagined as Luxury Homes for Sale

Luxury homes are still available for purchase at the site of the former Fawkham Manor Hospital in Longfield, Gravesend.

The Victorian manor house, which also served as a private hospital, closed its doors to patients in June 2019 due to financial concerns. However, a new opportunity has emerged for those seeking an elegant and historic place to call home.

In the summer of 2020, a planning application was submitted to Sevenoaks council to revitalize the property. The initial proposal included converting the listed manor house and demolishing the hospital wings to make way for 32 new homes. Despite receiving Grade II-listed status in November 2020, the plans were rejected just three months later.

However, a revised proposal was submitted by DHA Planning on behalf of V&N Properties Ltd. The new plan reduced the number of homes to 26 in order to preserve the character and integrity of the manor house. In August 2021, the revised proposal was approved by planning officers.

The homes range from two to four bedrooms and include both apartments and townhouses. Eleven of the 26 homes are still available for purchase, with prices ranging from £475,000 to £700,000. Each home boasts open-plan living spaces, fully-fitted kitchens, and luxurious bathrooms. Residents also have access to communal gardens, courtyards, and a private woodland.

The manor house, designed by Victorian architect Edward Buckton Lamb, is a stunning piece of history that has been carefully restored and converted into eight apartments. The hospital’s modern additions have been demolished and replaced with an L-shaped block of mews houses.

The location of Fawkham Manor is ideal, situated between Longfield and New Ash Green, near Gravesend. The development offers two allocated parking spaces per home and access to communal electric vehicle charging points.
