Full description

A beautiful five bedroom 1850’s townhouse seconds from the seafront - just a short walk to the station or into Margate Old Town. The owners have restored the home, maintaining a wealth of original features, working fireplaces, high skirting boards and ceiling roses, whilst adding modern elements of motion and smoke alarms, sprinkler system and double-glazed sash windows. As you open the front door you are greeted by high ceilings, beautiful decor and original wooden flooring.
The heart of the property is on the lower ground floor - a stunning Smallbone’s kitchen and open dining area. Hand-made terracotta floor tiles and a wood burner add to the atmosphere of this amazing communal area.

On this level there is a WC and utility room.
To the first floor is the family bathroom with an Aqualisa shower and French bath. The master bedroom boasts a working fireplace and double doors to the renovated balcony looking down to the sea. The second bedroom has its original fireplace, built in cupboard and large sash window.
The top floor has a further two double bedrooms with fireplaces and cupboards, a third single bedroom and large landing area with access to the loft. The current vendors have added a modern shower room and WC to this floor ensuring facilities on all floors.

The Vendor's View - This is the perfect seaside home! We love everything about this house. Literally seconds from what locals consider to be the best family beach, yet just a stroll into the heart of Margate. Whether it’s a day on the beach, a swim in the sea, exploring on the rocks or a bike ride to Reculver, this house has it on the doorstep! If it’s culture you’re wanting, the Turner Contemporary, galleries, bars and restaurants of Margate’s Old Town are a 15-minute stroll along the front. The iconic Dreamland is ten minutes away as is the lovely Carlton independent cinema. Schools, shops and the station are all incredibly convenient.
We love socialising and the fantastic communal spaces here are just ideal. The kitchen/dining area is a dream and we spend most of our time here, with the wood burner blazing in the winter and the door to the garden open through the summer. We love the versatility of the living rooms – one grand space for Christmas and celebrations or two beautiful rooms for relaxing and entertaining.
Our main bedroom is light and tranquil and we love an evening drink on the balcony as the sun goes down over the sea. Bedrooms and bathrooms abound – and are needed with all the visiting family and friends!
Living in this house is a real pleasure and we will miss everything about it.
