Property description

A substantial detached house enviably positioned on the Southern side of Joy Lane, one of Whitstable's most coveted locations, just 500 metres from the beach and within walking distance to Whitstable town centre and station (1.1 mile distant).

This impressive family home provides 1826 sq ft (167 sq m) of accommodation, and now requires refurbishment and modernisation throughout. There is considerable scope to extend and remodel the house (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained), which once complete would result in a truly exceptional home. The current accommodation comprises an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, four double bedrooms and a bathroom.

The South facing gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property, and extend to 124ft (38m). A detached garage and driveway provide off road parking for a number of vehicles. No onward chain.
