Property description

Beautifully situated at the end of the exclusive Marine Drive private road on the seafront at Botany Bay and adjacent to the North Foreland Golf Club on the outskirts of Broadstairs, this superbly refurbished and extended detached property provides everything you need for a delightful permanent family home or the ultimate holiday retreat. It has recently been redesigned to provide light, bright and spacious open plan accommodation on the ground floor with vast picture windows throughout to make the most of the truly stunning and uninterrupted panoramic sea views and views across the golf course to Kingsgate Castle, that simply take your breath away. Approached via a virtually horseshoe shaped 'in and out' driveway incorporating a central lawn, you are immediately aware of the large windows and the attractive front door. Once into the hallway that is open to the fascinating living room you are faced with two sets of bi-folding doors to the easy-to-maintain large lawned and secure garden and wraparound decked terrace. The house has been designed with entertaining in mind and nowhere is this more apparent than in the gorgeous and extended L shaped kitchen/dining room. This is every cook's dream with its large central island, three built in ovens and microwave, induction hob, dishwasher, two integrated fridges and a freezer and a vast array of fitted units. There are also two sets of bi folding doors to the garden and terrace so when these doors and those in the hall are open you can really sense that you are bringing the outdoors indoors. The ground floor also includes a 'snug' with an inset for a large flat screen TV, that could be an additional bedroom if required as well as a charming office where you can sit and enjoy the views over the garden. Upstairs there is a contemporary family bathroom and four double bedrooms all with even more amazing views than on the ground floor, including the master with fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There is a very large cabin in the garden with its own decked terrace that is well insulated and has lighting, heating and electrics. It is currently divided into two areas and being used as a gym and games room.

What the Owner says:
"The house was originally built by one of our grandfathers in 1959 as a holiday home so this is the first time it has ever come on the market. Apart from wanting to be beside the sea he chose the position because he was an avid golfer and, at the time, he included a gate straight onto the golf course! He also liked the fact that being at the end of a small private road there is no passing traffic so it is extremely safe, quiet and peaceful and, with three young children, we find that aspect equally important.
Over the more recent years the house became somewhat neglected so when we decided to move from London about six years ago and live here permanently we took on the task of renovating the place from top to bottom and we are very proud of our achievements. However a new direction means we need to move so we hope that another family will be able to enjoy the fruits of our labours and the facilities that are available nearby. You can get to the Blue flag Botany Bay beach very easily, while if you are looking for a very quiet sunbathe or swim nearby Kingsgate Bay is ideal while surfing enthusiasts can go to Joss Bay. You can enjoy an evening out at the nearby Botany Bay hotel or stroll around the golf course to the Captain Digby for a family lunch party. There is a useful convenience store within walking distance and the town centre is only a five minute drive.
We will still live in Broadstairs as we love the area."
