Miles & Barr are extremely pleased to be offering this historic house located only yards from St Mildred’s Bay, Westgate. Believed to have been built in 1870 by John Greavson, Bertha Cottage (formerly Beach Lodge but recently reverted back to the original name on the founding stone) is thought to be one of the earliest properties to be built in Westgate. Old Boundary Road is named as such due to it marking the original eastern boundary of Westgate-on-sea. This charming home currently requires full refurbishment having remained within the same family for many decades and being recently stripped out in readiness for development.

The property itself offers spacious and versatile living accommodation arranged over three floors and is currently set up to boast six bedrooms, four reception rooms and a bathroom. Externally there is a westerly facing sunny aspect rear garden with full access around the property.

In our opinion this property would make the perfect project for any growing family or for those wishing to restore something to its former period glory! The house is perfectly situated not only with the beach at the end of the road and tennis courts almost opposite, but also sits within walking distance of Westgate’s Victorian canopied shopping parade, main line train station and popular local schools. Cliff top walks into Margate are also on your doorstep with access to good bus and road links both in and out of Thanet too. An early internal viewing is essential to fully appreciate all that is on offer.

N.B. The property also has planning permission granted for change of use from single dwelling to 2No 2 bed semi-detached dwellings together with the erection of a 3 storey rear extension and the insertion of 2 dormers windows to the rear - planning ref: F/TH/21/0753
