Birchington £500,000

Property Specification

Offered with NO ONWARD CHAIN.

This is truly an amazing opportunity for the lucky purchaser to acquire a piece of history! This 4/5 bedroomed semi detached Grand Georgian Villa is filled to the brim with character, charm and original features. This wonderful home has been under the same ownership for the past 46 years and in that time has been beautifully cared for, loved and maintained.

The ground floor of this spacious property boasts three large reception rooms (one of which is being used as the fifth bedroom), good sized traditional style kitchen with scullery off this plus an outside 'outhouse' cloakroom. The first floor offers three large double bedrooms and a single, with the master having an en-suite shower room facilities and a family bathroom. There are also two good sized cellar rooms that can easily be converted into office space, gym, wine cellar or even additional receptions to complete the living accommodation.

We believe that the jewel in the crown of this property is the 110ft garden, it truly is a flint walled secluded little piece of the country in the heart of Birchington. It also has a two storey detached wooden garage/workshop that was once the coach house to the main house with the 'stableman bothy' with its own fire and chimney (in need of repair). We have been informed that the property is in a conservation area but not listed*

Situated just a short stroll from Birchington town centre with its eclectic mix of shops, bars and restaurants. The mainline train station takes as little as 1 1/2 hours to get to London and the A299 Thanet Way is just two miles away, this gives you easy access throughout Kent. Birchington lies on the coast facing the North Sea, east of the Thames Estuary, between the seaside resorts of Herne Bay and Margate. As a seaside resort, the village is a notable tourist attraction and destination as well as having outstanding schools, public transport and amenities. The village's Minnis Bay is attached to Birchington and has the most wonderful family beach with attractions such as sailing, windsurfing, a paddling pool and coastal walking routes. Its three smaller beaches are surrounded by chalk cliffs, cliff stacks and caves
