Property description

'Warm, homely and happy'. That's how the current owners describe this lovely property, which has been their home for over 30 years. And it's little wonder that they have grown so attached to the house and the area.

Built in 1927, the period house retains much of the grandeur you would expect from a 20's property. It is particularly attractive from the outside, with red brick work, decorative stonework and a striking front door that's framed with large columns. Surrounded by gardens and hedging, the property has a welcoming, green exterior. Inside, the tall ceilings and large windows hark back to the 1920s. There are some lovely quirky windows throughout the property, including a large bay window, an arched window and sash windows. It also has a particularly large and open entrance hallway, which is so rare in contemporary properties today.

Back in 1927, the property was built by a builder as his own home, and his keen attention has made the property extra special. Attractive teak wood is a particular feature throughout the property. The staircase, many of the floors and the doors are made from this fine material, and have been so well-preserved. It's also clear that it has been designed to comfortably suit a family. The dining room leads straight from the kitchen, the large formal sitting room has enough room to host a gathering of family and friends, and there are three double bedrooms sharing two bathrooms. Upstairs, all of the bedrooms have double windows to make the most of the panoramic views around the property, and you can even see all the way down to the sea.

Over the last 30 years, the current owners have made significant improvements to make the property even more enjoyable for a family. They've completely renovated the property from a dilapidated state, added a cosy window seat in the sitting room and converted a garage into a peaceful snug. Having such great reception space on offer is ideal for families, providing so much versatility. Christmases, post-wedding parties, birthday parties and dinner parties have been aplenty in this house, and this is thanks to the wonderful space on offer.

Outside, the gardens wrap all the way around the property. To the rear, the garden is laid to patio with simple raised flowerbeds, making it very low-maintenance. To the front and side, there's a luscious lawn area, and the other side is home to the large driveway. The gardens are home to some sizeable trees and shrubs, creating excellent shelter and a pretty, green aspect.

Tankerton, and this street in particular, is a superb place to call home. The current owners love the area so much and are keen to stay nearby, having enjoyed raising a family here. The property is in an enviably convenient location: It's only a one street away from the seafront and you can walk to the train station, walk to the shops and catch a bus just down the road. Tennis courts, a swimming pool and bowling alley are also right on the doorstep. Plus, it's also only six miles from historic Canterbury and four miles from buzzing Herne Bay. With it's pretty beach huts, pebble beach and green slopes, Tankerton really is a quintessential Kent coastal town.
