Property Information

PRESTIGIOUS PRIVATE SQUARE LOCATION... St Margarets is a truly unique period bungalow situated on a private green just a stone's throw away from the seafront and town centre.
Oxenden Square with its bespoke collection of charming properties of varying ages and designs, was gifted to its residents by Sir Henry Oxenden in 1882 and St Margarets holds a prime position within this beautiful enclave. The private green at the centre, paints a picturesque scene that could easily grace the front of a postcard.
As you step inside St Margarets, you'll discover a harmonious blend of original features coupled with a modern, yet classic decor, creating a home of real distinction. Prior to the current owner's tenure, the property provided three bedrooms, but now has two bedroom with the ability to be reverted if required. Both current bedrooms are large double rooms as are both reception rooms. The luxurious family bathroom is absolutely beautiful with an enclosed wet room and freestanding bath complimented by elegant, brushed gold fitments and stunning tiling. A spacious kitchen/breakfast room and a separate WC concludes this characterful home.
The huge loft space offers incredible further potential and has lapsed planning permission, catering to the practical needs of a growing family. Gardens encompass the property with the main garden enjoying a southerly aspect and boasting a large, raised patio area where you can bask in sunshine throughout the day.
St Margarets is a link detached home, with the slightly adjoining property being a quaint bungalow, which once served as servant quarters for the St. Margarets, adding a touch of historical significance to the property.
