THIS GRAND PROPERTY OOZES THE CHARACTER AND CHARM OF A PREVIOUS ERA, FROM THE ORIGINAL VICTORIAN FLOOR TILES TO THE REFURBISHED FIREPLACES.
Comparable in size to a detached bungalow and conveniently located moments from the train station and opposite the green space and flower beds of Kingsnorth Gardens, the flat is also just a short walk to the seafront and high street yet tucked away with minimal passing traffic. The property was originally built in 1899 and has had a colourful journey over the past century, most notably being the birthplace of Churchill's private secretary & father to the Archbishop of Canterbury.
With an extensive program of improvements and skilled craftsmanship throughout, the current owners have gone to great lengths to restore the property back to its original style and grandeur.On top of the home improvements the owners have also acquired the land behind the kitchen. Currently used for parking the area comes with consent from the freeholder to extend the property subject to planning permission.
As you approach the property through the period garden gate and into your expansive landscaped private garden you are met by the grand Victorian porch and entrance hall. Inside the central corridor connects the living spaces with something new for the eye to enjoy at every turn. On the left hand side is the bright living room with bay window and door leading out to the garden. The central focus of this room is the restored fireplace with woodburner and vintage tiles. Further along are three double bedrooms, the master of which boasts a stylish en-suite shower room. Bedroom two, currently used as an office, gives access to the cellar, which has electric and has been tanked with a 10-year guarantee. To the rear of the property is a modern family bathroom with rolltop bath and bright kitchen/breakfast room with an impressive 3.5m picture window.
