A beautiful five bedroom 1850’s townhouse seconds from the seafront - just a short walk to the station or into Margate Old Town. The owners have restored the home, maintaining a wealth of original features, working fireplaces, high skirting boards and ceiling roses, whilst adding modern elements of motion and smoke alarms, sprinkler system and double-glazed sash windows. As you open the front door you are greeted by high ceilings, beautiful decor and original wooden flooring.
