Garden, Sandgate High Street, Sandgate, CT20

This unique period property offers spacious and versatile accommodation which exudes charm and character throughout with a wealth of original features and an interesting history with its roots in the 1700's when it was believed to have been a public house known as the Rose Inn. The property has been extensively improved by the current owners and is now presented in excellent order throughout.

The accommodation, which totals some 1600 sq ft, comprises an entrance vestibule leading to the sitting room with its polished floorboards, open fire and pretty bay window overlooking the garden. From here there is a door to the inner hallway and a 'secret door' to a stunning double height space with a mezzanine floor used as a music room from where a flight of steps leads down to the dining room/snug. There is also a well fitted kitchen and a cloakroom on the ground floor. The first floor comprises four double bedrooms, two with views of the sea, a bathroom and shower room.

The house enjoys a pretty west facing, secluded garden making it the ideal environment in which to relax and dine alfresco. Whilst there is no parking at the house, on street parking is readily available, the current owners rent a nearby space and believe that this may be an option for the purchasers and it is possible to purchase a permit for a nearby carpark.
