STUNNING DIRECT SEA VIEWS...
This substantial semi-detached home dates circa 1890 and enjoys an enviable position with stunning direct sea views over ‘The Downs’, a location argued to be the very best in Herne Bay.
Although in need of some updating, the property provides an excellent blank canvas to create that dream family home on the seafront.
With all rooms of elegant proportions, accommodation is arranged over three floors and is currently informally divided to provide a one bedroom apartment to the ground floor with a three/four bedroom home to the first and second floors.
As one large property, five bedrooms and two reception rooms are on offer with an en-suite to the master bedroom and a further bathroom and shower room.
Many original features are still in situ, with period fireplaces, high ceilings with cornices and exposed timber floors.
A south facing rear garden provides a nice sense of privacy, and endless coastal walks are enjoyed from the doorstep.
Properties with this amount of potential are rarely found on the seafront, we therefore urge an early viewing appointment to avoid disappointment. Call the exclusive sole agents, Kent Estate Agencies on 01227 367441 for further information.
