Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Only a stone's throw from Dumpton Gap Bay and South Cliff Parade with its wonderful greensward clifftop, this original 1913 coach house has been virtually rebuilt from scratch and extended by the owners but still incorporates some charming features. It has been constructed to a very high standard with a great deal of love and care and is totally at one with its environment, so will make an ideal holiday retreat or a permanent home. There are some special wow factors in this property including the vast array of bi-folding doors that open from both the kitchen/dining room and the lounge area onto an enormous decked terrace, providing a lovely light and airy ambience as well as creating an amazing entertainment space and a wonderful indoor/outdoor feeling.

Just inside the attractive oak front door is a cloakroom and a very useful study designed for two to work in, so you can see anyone arrive while you are working and business visitors do not need to go through the main part of the house. Alternatively this would make an excellent den, TV or hobby room. There is a vast amount of storage space throughout the property including a wall of built in cupboards in the attractive lounge area with its oak flooring. This leads to a well fitted and fascinating kitchen/dining room with its vaulted ceiling, red oak beams, terracotta floor tiles and green mosaic wall tiling. There are plenty of fitted units including some with glazed panels and internal lighting as well as an integrated oven, hob and dishwasher.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a charming family bathroom. The master bedroom is in the old part of the property with its high curved ceiling, large walk in dressing area and an en suite shower room. This provides another wow factor with its clear pyramid skylight above the shower, enabling you to shower under the stars at night while in the daytime the pyramid refracts the light like a prism channelling the light down through the water. There are two further double bedrooms and a single with some of the bedrooms having sea views. However plans exist to change the configuration of the upstairs if needed.

What the Owner says:


“We used to live in London but on a visit to Broadstairs in 2003 we fell in love with the beaches and the town and decided this is where we wanted to live. We then found an old coach house that was a bit of a wreck but was in such a fantastic location as it is only five minutes walk to the sandy beach at Dumpton Gap in one direction or the lovely George VI Memorial park on the other. So we decided to buy it and develop it initially as a holiday home but ultimately it became our permanent family base and where we have brought up our children. As we were creating it for our own use we took plenty of time to build it to a very high standard, using top quality materials and eventually moved in during 2007. It was designed with entertainment in mind and it is always full of people over Christmas and during the summer months, when it really comes into its own. This particularly applies to the terrace where there are plans in the pipeline to have it covered but these have not as yet been approved. We will be sad to leave the house we have created but we are about to start a new chapter in our lives so we hope that another family will be able to enjoy it as much as we have.

Broadstairs town centre with its wide range of individual shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and beaches is not far away and we are only just over half a mile from Dumpton Park Station although journey times are a little longer than if you go to Ramsgate station.
