Property Information

Kent Estate Agencies are proud to present this utterly gorgeous and imposing Victorian home to the market. Located on Beacon Hill, this property enjoys some of the best sea views that Herne Bay has to offer as well as being walking distance to the town centre.
Dating back to circa 1890, the property is palatial in size and arranged over three floors offering a surprisingly diverse range of living accommodation. As you enter the property you will be greeted by a large entrance hall adorned with stained glass windows, Victorian cornicing and an abundance of light flooding in from the bay window on the half landing.
The lounge and dining rooms are currently open through to each other and benefit from Victorian fireplaces and further cornicing. A large bay window frames the sea view found to the front of the room and adds to the already regal size.
A cosy family sitting room can be found tucked away offering further sea views and a log burning stove, perfect for admiring the views on a less-than-sunny day.
The art studio can be entered from this family sitting room and again, offers sea views and wonderful space to operate from home either painting, writing or working.
The family kitchen is great in size and provides ample work space and storage as well as a full sized AGA to cook from. A utility room can also be found next to the kitchen. Whether you would use it as a second dining room, possibly a breakfast room, or maybe even a garden room, a further space can be found off of the kitchen with another fireplace.
The first floor of the property comprises five bedroom and two family bathrooms. Three bedrooms including the master bedroom enjoy fantastic sea views from the front of the property. The middle bedroom to the front also offers access to the balcony with panoramic sea views.
Bedroom six provides access to the loft space which in our opinion would be perfect to create a stunning master suite with incredible elevated sea views.
The south facing walled garden provides a private space to relax and entertain and is accessible from several points making it extremely usable.
A large driveway provides ample parking to the front of the property and there is access to the garage.
