A fine example of a late 1920's detached home with far reaching sea views
A fine example of a late 1920's detached property which has been fully restored and updated by the current owners. Far reaching panoramic views towards the south across the Thames Estuary stretching to the North Kent coast on a clear day.
Arranged over three floors, the internal presentation and restoration soon becomes apparent upon entering the property. The house enjoys a modern feel, whilst still retaining much of the original charm from the period. Enjoying just under 3000 sq. ft. of accommodation the ground floor comprises three reception rooms, a bespoke kitchen, utility room and cloakroom.
The first floor is approached via a return staircase and features an original feature stain glass window. The master bedroom offers fantastic views across the estuary and benefits from en-suite and built in wardrobe facilities. Three further bedrooms and family bathroom also occupy this floor, with one of the bedrooms allowing access onto a sun terrace. An additional bedroom with built in storage and en-suite shower room is situated on the upper floor.
The outbuildings, formerly a Chauffeurs Cottage, are currently arranged as an office, garage and games room which can be restored back to an annexed dwelling. These are versatile as to how one would use them and have electricity, water and broadband connected. The carriage driveway is secured by electric gates and full CCTV is installed. This is approached via the adjacent road known as Gloucester Terrace. The driveway offers parking for a number of cars and access to the garden would allow storage for large items such as a boat or caravan.
