Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

General information 31 Kings Quay Street is part of a handsome Grade II listed Georgian house which presents gault brick elevations with symmetrical bow windows either side of the central doorway with arched fan light above, set beneath a slate mansard roof . The house is known locally as one of the Captains Houses, because in the early eighteenth century Madison Hunt, Master of the Packets, Captain of the 'Dolphin' and three times Mayor of Harwich lived here. In 1808/1809 the house was rebuilt and enlarged to its present form for John Hobday, a local merchant who died in 1812. When the house was sold at auction it was separated into two houses (31 and 32 Kings Quay Street) and remained that way for almost 180 years.
The house offers elegant and spacious accommodation on five floors, with the accommodation comprising a kitchen and a good-sized living / dining room on the ground floor with access to the front door from the side passage, and a utility room and spacious workshop in the basement. At first floor level there is a family bathroom accessible from a mezzanine landing between ground and first floor, a good sized sitting room, and a fine bedroom with stunning views over the beach, harbour entrance and out to the North Sea. On the second floor is the master bedroom with modern bathroom adjacent, and a further bedroom on the third floor above, all bedrooms having a fascinating sea view'.

To the front of the house across the street is a hard standing providing parking for two cars with a mature shrubbery beyond affording an element of privacy. There is also a small service yard to the rear of the house.
