PERIOD SEAFRONT HOUSE WITH NO FORWARD CHAIN!
With beautiful sea views over 'The Downs', this large period home is situated within arguably the most desirable location of Herne Bay.
In need of some improvement, this four bedroom home is most deceptive, and upon entering the property you'll be struck by the grand 11ft entrance hall with original balustrade staircase and period style fireplace.
The main sitting room with its original wooden floorboards and beautiful period fireplace boasts a direct sea view via a large bay window.
The large separate dining room is perfect for dinner entertaining and also features original exposed floorboards and a brick fireplace whilst French doors open out to the sunny rear garden.
A good size country style kitchen and a downstairs shower room completes the ground floor.
The first floor presents four bedrooms, the master looking seaward with another large bay window taking advantage of those stunning sea views.
Bedroom Three which serves perfectly as a study or snug, opens directly onto a balcony with far reaching views along the coast enjoyed.
The bathroom is reminiscent of the property's era, featuring a freestanding roll-top bath and high flush WC.
A large high pitched loft space offers further potential to extend, where even better views across 'The Downs' would be enjoyed.
The 52ft rear garden benefits from a southerly aspect, enjoying sunshine throughout the day and has been landscaped with low maintenance in mind. Here will also have access to the detached garage which found down the left hand side of the house.
Ample off-road parking can be found to the front via the driveway.
Properties with this amount of potential are rarely found and we therefore urge an early viewing appointment to avoid disappointment. Call the exclusive sole agents, Kent Estate Agencies on 01227 367441 for further information.
