Bossington House

Bossington House, a fine grade II listed property in Bossington, Kent, transforming the

former care home back into a superb family residence.

The character of Bossington House is derived in part from its long history of

alterations. The origins of house are believed to be medieval and the original framed

structure is still evident in much of the house. The impressive brick south façade was

built as part of a major extension programme in the 18th century and further additions

to the house followed during the 19th century.

In 1984 the house underwent an unsympathetic conversion into a care home for the

elderly and a single storey, red brick clay tiled accommodation block was constructed

to the north of the main house, with a conservatory linking the main house with the

new wing.

When LEP’s client acquired the house in 2005 it was in a poor condition and work

focused on restoring the original and 18th century areas of the house.

In addition the project included a major re-ordering of the 20th century accommodation

block to include a gymnasium and guest accommodation serving the main house.
