Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming Victorian terrace house along the seafront at Herne Bay is virtually opposite the pier. It has uninterrupted sea views and is being run as a successful guest house but would make an equally delightful family home. The owners have updated the property to provide for modern day living but have retained some period features such as ceiling roses, picture rails and fireplaces. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the sitting room with its large bay window overlooking the sea. This room has ‘hidden' double doors in the wall attached to the next room that is currently in use as a large double bedroom with an en-suite shower. However if the doors were re-opened these two rooms would create a large lounge/dining room.

Beyond the staircase is the refurbished and extended part of the property. This includes a very large room that is currently the guest dining room with dado height panelled walls, storage cupboards and ceramic tiles that flow through to the extension. This area could also make an excellent family space as it is adjacent to the new kitchen that was only installed a year ago. This includes attractive modern units housing a range cooker and other appliances and leads to a superb bed/sitting room and contemporary bathroom. This room has french doors to the rear courtyard so has independent access to the property.

There are six further double bedrooms all with en-suite showers on the second and third floors. Two of these are larger and currently promoted as ‘family' rooms with panoramic vistas along the Kent coastline. For anyone considering continuing to use the property as a guest house much of the furniture and furnishings would remain including zip link beds and bedding. There is a large cellar running the width of the property as well as a garage and a charming courtyard at the front of the house where you can sit and enjoy the view.

What the Owner says:

“We bought the property about 13 years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It has been a delight to refurbish and extend the house and we are extremely proud to have built up such a successful business over the years. However we feel it is time for us to retire and to let new owners take over the baton. Whether you are looking for a seaside retreat or a new business opportunity we feel this house offers a variety of versatile opportunities.

Herne Bay is a charming seaside resort with some delightful independent shops and lovely restaurants as well as the beach and seaside activities. At the same time the high speed train can get you to London in well under an hour and a half. You can enjoy the coastline, nature and wildlife on walking and cycling trails through the Reculver coastal park or visit some of the museums and art galleries along the cultural trail. For water sport enthusiasts there is sailing and jet skiing and golfing aficionados can enjoy the nearby Whitstable and Seasalter course or the Chestfield golf clubs or the championship courses at Sandwich if you want to go slightly further afield. There are some good primary schools in the vicinity including Herne Primary rated by Ofsted as Outstanding as well as the Herne Bay High school and a number of excellent secondary grammar and private schools in Canterbury, Thanet and Sandwich”.
