Valerian Lodge is a Grade II Listed property dating to the 1820s, with an extension having been added around 1870. Steps lead up to the main porch and a glass panelled front door opens into the entrance hall. To the left is a cloakroom and next to this the kitchen/breakfast room, a fantastically light room with large windows. There are plenty of built-in storage units, an integrated fridge/freezer, an oven with hob over, space for a range cooker and dishwasher. The room has wooden floorboards and there is ample space for a large table and chairs.   A door opens into a lobby where there is a door to the garden.

The dining room is a spectacular double aspect room with sash windows fitted with internal shutters, original floorboards and a fabulous fireplace with marble surround. The drawing room is a considerable size and has at one time been split into two rooms and then combined back into one, hence its two entrance doors. It is a beautiful double aspect room with large sash windows and fireplaces with marble surrounds at each end, one with inset gas fire and the other being a working fireplace.

To the end of the hall is the snug with a large fireplace with inset gas fire and marble surround. Stairs from the hall lead to the lower ground floor. There is a large under stairs cupboard, opposite which is a study with built-in shelving and a fireplace. Adjacent is a utility room with space for white goods and a door to the outside from where steps rise to the side of the property. There is a store cupboard with slate shelving (the original larder) and a further stone floored store room. The family room has built-in store cupboards, an original range cooker and a built-in dresser, a door from here leads to a wine store.

From the ground floor, stairs rise to the bright first floor landing, a vast arched window flooding the landing and stairwell with light. The master bedroom is a large room with stunningly high ceilings, windows to the side and a fireplace with marble surround. Bedroom 2 also has high ceilings, a built in wardrobe cupboard, a fireplace and views of the garden. Bedroom 3 is another good size room with views of the garden, built in wardrobe and fireplace. Bedroom 4 is double aspect and has two sets of French doors opening to a balcony. A link door leads to bedroom 5, a single room again with fireplace; the room has French doors to a further balcony. The accommodation is completed by two family bathrooms.


Located on the East Kent coast, Ramsgate is noted for its fine Georgian architecture. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the town was a well-known destination for affluent families to 'take the sea air'. The architect Augustus Pugin frequented Ramsgate in search of 'the delight of the sea', and went on to design and build himself a family home and St Augustine's Church here. The harbour is especially picturesque and the area offers a good range of facilities including a Waitrose, together with stores at the Westwood Cross shopping and leisure complex, approximately 2.5 miles distant. Further leisure, cultural and educational facilities can be found in the Cathedral City of Canterbury approximately 16 miles away.

Ramsgate station is within walking distance and provides access to connecting services to London, with the High Speed service taking about 80 minutes to St Pancras. The nearby A299 Thanet Way gives good access to the M2. There is a cross-channel service to Ostend and a wider range of services to the Continent from Dover and Folkestone. Eurostar services are available from Ashford International station.


Valerian Lodge is entered through wrought-iron double gates into the driveway and parking area with space for approximately six cars. The driveway is bordered to one side with a mixture of established plants and shrubs.
The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a picturesque pergola running through the centre and to one corner there is an oak summer house. The garden is surrounded by a delightful flint stone wall which is hugely attractive, and there is an excellent variety of mature trees, including mulberry, lime, horse chestnut, sycamore and copper beech.
