This charming Edwardian villa is a delight from the moment you turn into the spacious driveway. It has great kerb appeal with its arched porch, wide original front door, sash windows and first floor balcony. You will be impressed by the sensitive refurbishment undertaken by the owners combining attractive period features from a bygone era such as ornate coving, large central ceiling roses, fireplaces and square bay windows with everything required for 21st century living. The entrance hall is redolent of Edwardian elegance and leads to all the rooms on the ground floor including the contemporary kitchen/breakfast room. It has porcelain floor tiling, underfloor heating and bi-folding doors to a large decked terrace that is ideal for al fresco entertaining. The modern kitchen area has a good sized central island, contemporary units and high quality appliances. There is an elegant lounge and a light and bright dining room for more formal occasions. The dining room not only has a similar ceiling rose, coving, engineered oak flooring as the drawing room but also includes an impressive working fireplace and bi-folding doors to the terrace. On the first floor is a contemporary family bathroom, access to the balcony and four double bedrooms including the master suite with a lovely large square bay window, a dressing room/nursery/fifth bedroom and an en suite double shower room. The walled rear garden includes a lawn and is easy to manage while at the front of the house there is plenty of off street parking.
What the Owner says:
“We have thoroughly enjoyed updating this house and not only restoring it to its former glory but also incorporating contemporary aspects to make it suitable for modern day living. Having refurbished the house from top to bottom it is now just ready for new owners to walk straight in without having to do anything and, as it is chain free, this can be achieved very quickly. Herne Bay is a great place to live and the house is only a few minutes walk from the seafront and not far from the town centre where you will find a bustling seafront and historic pier as well as a wide variety of restaurants, individual shops and attractive buildings. You can enjoy the coastline, nature and wildlife on walking and cycling trails through the Reculver coastal park or visit some of the museums and art galleries along the cultural train. For water sport enthusiasts there is sailing and jet skiing and for golfing aficionados the options are endless: As you are in easy reach of Sandwich with three stunning Championship Golf Courses including Royal St Georges (British Open venue) or indeed the beautiful parkland layout at Faversham. There are some good primary schools including Herne Primary rated by Ofsted as Outstanding as well as the Herne Bay High school and a number of secondary grammar and private schools in Canterbury, Broadstairs and Sandwich, while commuters can catch the train from Herne Bay station or get the fast train from Canterbury West".
