Full description

An attractive semi detached Georgian house situated well back from the road, enjoying a mature gardens setting and parking for five cars, beyond a perimeter wall topped with iron railings. This substantial period house is situated amongst homes of a similar character, in a very convenient location just a few hundred yards from the beach and about half a mile from Deal Town Centre.

Internal inspection promises to reveal extensive living accommodation with generously proportioned rooms and high ceilings. Front bedroom windows have partial sea views and there is a clear view of Deal Castle, the beach and sea from the fifth bedroom window on the third floor. Much of the original character has been retained; features include period fireplaces, stripped pine doors, sash windows and decorative plaster cornices.

The accommodation is also very versatile and would suit a variety of family situations for example there is ground floor annexe suite which has access to the rear garden, comprising a living room with kitchen facilities, a bedroom, and shower room. The property has approximately 90’ long gardens to the front and rear, the width of the rear garden widens to about 50’ across the boundary furthest from the house.

The property is within easy distance of the town centre shopping and Deal railway station. The journey time from Deal to London’s St Pancras station is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes whilst the journey times for trains into St Pancras from Dover Priory are about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Road commuters will be pleased to find quick access to A2/M2 and connections to the Kent motorway network, Channel Tunnel and Dover Port.

There is an excellent choice of schools in the area both in the state and Independent sector and leisure amenities are particularly well catered for. The nearby coastline offers a wide range of water sports, which includes excellent sea angling and clubs for rowing and dinghy sailing. The surrounding countryside offers pleasant walks, cycle routes and a selection of golf courses.

What the Owner says:

“This is a wonderfully quirky old house, packed to the rafters with character and it seems to live and breathe a homely atmosphere. Whatever the season, we can always be assured the house will provide a warm welcome and it really comes to life during the spring and summer, when friends and family descend upon us for days by the sea.”
“It is a superb home for entertaining, having masses of rambling accommodation, providing plenty of space for family and friends to spread themselves around. We are never short of visitors as one can literally walk to the beach in less than a minute and then stroll along the sea front into the town centre, which has many friendly pubs and restaurants. This is when our annexe becomes so useful as a place where guests can stay and enjoy their own privacy without disrupting the rest of house.”
“One of our favourite rooms is the garden room, it is such a versatile space, where we tend to spend much of our time relaxing and enjoying the garden. It really is a lovely room, full of sunlight from mid morning to late evening with French doors opening onto our sun trap terrace. It is a perfect secluded spot for alfresco meals and watching spectacular sunsets. We are fortunate to have such a large garden so close to town and have cultivated it in a way that requires minimal maintenance, whilst rewarding us with a pleasant cottage style vista of plants and shrubs.”
