Tenure: Freehold

This imposing 1920's period home is arguably one of the largest and finest properties in the centre of coastal Herne Bay.
Northdown House offers an incredible 3827sq ft of accommodation (355.5 sq m) with rooms of palatial proportions and abundance of period features throughout.
Enjoyed by the current vendors for nearly 15 years, this is a house they had always dreamed of owning, naturally attracted to the beautiful façade and large plot of 0.27 acres.
A 22ft reception hall immediately provides a sense of grandeur and the sheer amount of space on offer soon becomes apparent.
The study area is just off the reception hall with its original feature fireplace and large bay window to front; an area where the butler once sat to meet and greet guests.
There are two principal reception rooms, both superior in size and extremely elegant. The 23ft dining/lounge overlooks and opens out to the secluded south facing rear garden whilst the sitting room lies to the front of the house.
The kitchen with solid wood work surfaces has been updated over recent years with attractive, traditional units and is adjacent to the breakfast room which completes the ground floor.
The first floor presents four great size double bedrooms and the master bedroom is no exception, measuring an impressive 23' 8 x 16' with a freestanding claw foot bath proving to be wonderfully artistic feature.
Two of the bedrooms benefit from en-suite facilities and a luxury family bathroom concludes the first floor.
The second floor is equally as spacious with two enormous size bedrooms and a separate bathroom with access to extensive eaves loft space.
Externally the property sits nicely within its plot, well screened behind a double height border wall and approached via two gated driveways.
The large rear garden enjoys sunshine throughout most of the day, benefitting from a southerly aspect and providing an excellent degree of privacy.
A 22ft garden room which could also be a studio or fantastic home office boasts double glazed UPVC windows and a stunning log burner. A large detached garage with workshop to is also found.
Northdown House really is a special family home and we strongly advise an internal viewing appointment. Call the exclusive sole agents, Kent Estate Agencies on 01227 367441 for further information.
