Full description

Tenure: Freehold

North Sea Lodge is situated on a tree lined private road in Birchington-on-Sea, within walking distance of both the seafront and train station. It is believed to have been built by Delissa Joseph in the 1880s and is an early example of an Indian Lodge. One architectural feature of Indian lodges is a tower with high windows that apparently the owners used to view the tea ships coming in from the Thames. The property is entered via the tower and this then leads to a large L shaped hallway. The property is incredibly flexible and is currently set up as eight bedroom accommodation, however, this includes a separate lobby with access to two double bedrooms which have been subdivided to create four single rooms. The drawing room is dual aspect with a large bow window at the end of the room, Corinthian columns and an ornate fireplace. The other main reception room, currently being used as the master bedroom, also has a large bow window and a beautiful, decorative and unusual fireplace. At the rear of the property is a large kitchen/diner with a good range of units, built-in gas oven, grill and dishwasher. There are both a utility room and a conservatory from this room, giving access to the garden. The property sits approximately in the middle of about a quarter of an acre plot. A retaining wall encloses a driveway with parking for many cars leading to a large garage (241 x 143) with an up and over door. There is a pretty front garden with a lawn, mature conifers, flowerbeds and yew hedging. The rear garden has a large expanse of lawn, again with mature trees, a rockery area and flowerbeds.
