Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

Location is everything. Combine that with a beautiful period property with distant sea-views and this charming two bedroom apartment really is a wonderful opportunity which will appeal to the most discerning of purchasers.

Surrounded by trees and a towering flint wall, this grand Georgian building is steeped in history. The vendor has advised us that the main house was constructed in circa 1767. In 1868 Dr Tait, the then Bishop of London, purchased this as his summer home after which he was appointed Archbishop of Canterbury. In 1950 Stone House was registered as a Grade II listed building and in 1972 it was converted into sixteen luxury apartments. The apartments with six Mews cottages and a converted Chapel are set within two acres of established gardens and woodlands, this offers a unique oasis of privacy within one of the most sought after coastal locations on the Isle of Thanet.

Less than a ten minute walk away is Stone Bay, a beautiful, unspoilt beach with a wide sweep of sand interspersed with chalk rocks. The heart of Broadstairs with a fabulous selection of restaurants and independent shops is also within easy walking distance.

In good order, this first floor apartment enjoys two reception rooms with original style sash windows and impressive views over the communal gardens and sweeping driveway with the sea in the distance. There is a fitted kitchen, two bedrooms with built in wardrobes and a four piece bathroom suite. There is also a garage en bloc and parking for both residents and guests.

A management company has been appointed to ensure the highest standards are maintained. Escorted viewings can be arranged by the sole agent, TMS. We are open 7 days a week. 01843 866055. NO CHAIN.
