Tenure: Freehold

This four bedroom Neo Georgian house is defined as an executive home but the word that truly describes the house is tranquil. Situated in a beautiful location, only a stone’s throw from Westbrook Royal Esplanade which has ¾ mile of grassed cliff top. Directly opposite the house is a cutting that leads to the sea, Promenade and beach. There is also a slipway to launch a boat for either fishing or water-skiing. The promenade which stretches for miles is great for cycling, walking and fishing and is void of traffic.
The property has a unique character, the very spacious rooms offer vast amount of storage spaces and beautiful views of the sea. The master bedroom comes with an en-suite bathroom. But the room that really catches your attention is the lounge at 31ft, its been designed to enjoy cosy nights by the fire, yet is ideal for dinner parties and entertaining. A double and single garage are both adjacent to the property providing extra space that can also be used for extra storage or a home gym.
The property is extremely light and has a delightful galleried staircase with French windows to a balcony to watch “Turners” famous sunsets. One of the biggest selling points of this house unquestionably is the garden. Whilst the front has two sets of double gates and a sweeping drive which offers extensive space for parking, the rear garden is the ultimate relaxing setting. The garden has an abundance of trees and shrubs which welcome a myriad of wildlife, from blue jays, blackbirds, jackdaws, doves and a family of squirrels. There is also a large raised patio and outdoor bar and is perfect for intimate dining yet has hosted on many occasions, weddings and parties in excess of 60 people.
Westgate village is located within a mile away providing access to children’s nurseries, two well regarded academies, shops, restaurants, cinema, a garden centre and railway station with direct access to London. The area is a favourite for people looking for the quiet life and the community is made up of a nice residential mix including entrepreneurs eager to find peace and tranquillity .
When asked about the house, the owner said with emotion: “It has been a dream house especially when we had young children being so close to the safe promenade to play, and delightful for entertaining. The house is now too big for just my wife and I and we want to downsize. However it is going to be difficult to find somewhere that will replace our current home”.

The location of this property is key, being just 33 yards from the Westbrook Promenade and blue flag award winning bays and beaches of Westbrook. Situated under a mile from the centre of Westgate on Sea, a desirable seaside town with its Victorian canopied local shop which provides a wide range of shopping facilities, restaurants, cinema and mainline railway station. The A299 is approximately 4.7 miles away providing road links to London via the M2 with Westgate and Margate railway stations both a 1 mile away, providing direct links to London Victoria as well as the high speed Javelin service to London St. Pancras.
