    a little history..

    Built in 1906, as new premises for a preparatory school,called Doon House School.

    The school was closed in the early part of the Second World War and the property requisitioned by the military as an officer's mess for nearby Manston airfield. In 1946 it became the headquarters of the British Legion Homes, Maurice House. The home moved to new premises in nearby Broadstairs, the building became the head office for a construction company and then, in the mid-1980's a nursing home.
    A large neo-Georgian property set back from the road with substantial gravel approach and grounds. Constructed in red brick with stone dressings it comprises of a central projecting gable flanked by two of similar design to the left and right of the property.

    A tiled roof with central glazed timber lantern and six dormer windows to the front elevation. Three round windows with decorative brick surround to the gable ends with decorative timber soffit and corbel.
    To the centre of the building to the first floor is an impressive leaded window the upper portion divided into four parts. These contains the coat of arms of colleges that two founders and original masters of Doon House School attended. The main entrance, which is situated below the leaded window, has a fine stone arched broken pediment surround terminated with two well-detained Corinthian columns.
