Minnis Road, Birchington, CT7

7 bedroom Character Property - Detached for sale

Guide price £550,000 For Sale

An opportunity to acquire a historic Grade II listed building in the heart of Birchington. Set within its own grounds Gore End Farmhouse occupies a desirable plot within easy reach of the village shops and amenities in one direction, and the award winning Minnis Bay beach in the other.

Originally part of Upper Gore End Farm, it is thought that there has been a dwelling on this site since at least 1642, and that this was one of only two dwellings outside of the village of Birchington in this direction until the introduction of the railway around 1863. Full of period charm and character, in our opinion properties of this nature are rarely available.

In need of modernisation, the accommodation itself is arranged over four floors. The ground floor is comprised of four reception rooms, a kitchen, store, boot room and WC. The first floor boasts 5 bedrooms and a bathroom, whilst the second floor completes the picture with two further bedrooms. Further benefits include a cellar with two rooms, a garage, gated entry, and an enclosed garden surround. Being offered with NO FORWARD CHAIN.

N.B. The purchaser will be under an obligation to erect a 6 foot close boarded fence adjacent to the barn in the front garden as well as having to brick up the gateway in the wall on the side of the farmyard.

Purchasers should note that the adjoining land is allocated for residential development within the Thanet Local Plan.
