Property Information

A detached country cottage standing on 1.7 acres of land and surrounded by picturesque rolling countryside. Despite its tranquil setting, it is situated just 2 miles away from the sandy beaches at Margate & Westbrook Bay and just 1.8 miles away from Westwood Cross Shopping Centre.
The current owner has cherished this property for 41 years, and it offers a fantastic opportunity for equine enthusiasts, as it comes with two paddocks, five stables, a tack room, and a large courtyard.
While the house itself requires some updating, it provides an excellent blank canvas for creating the perfect family home in the countryside. On the ground floor, you will find two reception rooms, a double bedroom, a bathroom, and a conservatory that overlooks the garden and paddocks. The first floor presents three superb double bedrooms and a shower room with a sauna and WC. The elevated views from the bedrooms are truly breathtaking.
In terms of parking, the courtyard can accommodate multiple vehicles, along with the added convenience of a double garage. It's worth noting that properties with equestrian facilities in such close proximity to the coast are extremely rare in this area, making this cottage a unique find. Given its desirability, we highly recommend scheduling an early viewing appointment to avoid missing out on this remarkable opportunity.

The property is situated down a quiet country lane with very little passing traffic and a short distance from Margate and Westwood Cross shopping centre, offering a convenient location with excellent local amenities. The property is also near the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother (QEQM) Hospital, making it convenient for healthcare needs.
Central Margate is easily accessible by a short drive and offers a range of attractions. The Turner Contemporary art gallery is a world-class gallery that showcases contemporary art exhibitions. The 'Old Tow' area of Margate features a vibrant piazza, as well as a variety of restaurants, cafes, and a reinvigorated harbor, providing a charming atmosphere. Margate itself is a fantastic seaside town, encompassing the surrounding areas of Cliftonville, Garlinge, Palm Bay, and Westbrook. The town exudes an energetic atmosphere and offers a range of attractions. In addition to the Turner Contemporary art gallery and the revitalized Dreamland pleasure park, Margate boasts stunning sandy beaches and sparkling bays, providing ample opportunities for relaxation and leisure activities.
Another nearby destination is Ramsgate, which is increasingly becoming a popular choice for visitors. It is notable for its Royal Harbour, the only one in the country, and its impressive Georgian architecture. The extensive marina is surrounded by numerous restaurants and bars, offering a great dining and entertainment experience.
Both Margate and Ramsgate have railway stations that provide high-speed rail links to Kings Cross St. Pancras, allowing for easy access to London. In addition, there are good road connections to London via the A299 Thanet Way and the M2 Motorway.
