Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A grand and imposing Victorian residence, with over 2000 sq. ft of generous and well presented accommodation over three floors, including a superb ground floor annexe wing.

The property is set within an unusually large, gated plot in the seaside town of Herne bay, with an in and out driveway, landscaped gardens and numerous outbuildings.

The property has retained some lovely period features, including picture rails, fireplaces and its distinctive bay windows, however it has also seen numerous improvements in recent years as well.

The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with wood effect Amtico flooring & stairs to the first floor. The Amtico flooring continues into a wonderfully light and airy, dual aspect, open plan sitting room and dining room, with two bay windows, picture rails, a cast iron fireplace and a wood burning stove.

The kitchen/breakfast room is a good size room with double glazed French doors to the garden and ample space for a table and chairs. The kitchen has been fitted with a good range of traditionally styled wall and floor units set around granite effect work surfaces, integrated appliances and ceramic wall tiles.

Beyond this there is a superb modern addition with a cloakroom, a utility/kitchenette, a shower room and a large sitting room with two sets of double glazed French doors to the garden.

On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to three double bedrooms and a well appointed family bathroom. This has been recently refitted with a contemporary white suite including a jacuzzi bath with a shower over it.

The master bedroom is a particularly impressive room with picture rails and a square bay window which drenches the room in natural light.

The second bedroom is also a large double room with picture rails, a cast iron feature fireplace and a double glazed door which opens onto a superb roof terrace. A further staircase rises to another spacious double bedroom on the second floor.

OUTSIDE:

The house sits within generous grounds, which measures approximately 67 ft (at its widest point) by 213 ft deep and, whilst an irregular shape, it is still an unusually large plot. To the front of the plot there is a wide gated in and out driveway which provides parking for numerous vehicles.

A secure side gate leads to a large side garden with Indian sandstone paving, raised decking and a lovely koi carp pond and water feature. This side garden enjoys complete privacy and a southerly aspect.

The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with remote controlled lighting, a gravelled patio area adjacent to the house and a mature tree with a treehouse and slide.

There is also an excellent range of outbuildings including two large workshops with power and lighting connected and a timber shed.

SITUATION:

The popular coastal town of Herne Bay has a wide range of amenities with good shopping facilities, a selection of schools including a specialist sports college, an excellent choice of leisure activities and an historic pier. The town also boasts a rowing and sailing club, a football club in the Kent league, a local cinema and a swimming pool.

The picturesque Memorial Park also has tennis and basketball courts, a small lake, a children’s play area and a sports field. There is a mainline railway station with a regular service to London Victoria and St. Pancras and the town enjoys excellent road links with the A299 (Thanet Way) providing access to both the coast and London via the A2/M2.

The town is situated just one mile from the sought after harbour town of Whitstable and only seven miles from the beautiful Cathedral City of Canterbury. The bustling seaside town of Whitstable is famous for its seafood and annual oyster festival held at the vibrant harbour and picturesque quayside.

The town has a variety of independent shops and boutiques, as well as high street names. There are good local primary and secondary schools, numerous pubs, restaurants, excellent leisure facilities and a mainline railway station.

The nearby cathedral city of Canterbury offers an even wider range of shopping and leisure amenities including vibrant High Street with a diverse mix of independent retailers alongside mainstream brands, the White Friars Shopping Centre and the Marlowe Theatre. The city also offers an excellent range of both state and private schools, three universities and two hospitals.
