Warwick Road, Cliftonville
A substantial late Edwardian, four bedroom, terraced home, just a short stroll from the beach and the amenities, in the bustling seaside town of Margate. With a character split landing and cellar space, the house also benefits from the large, high ceiling rooms of the period and a number of original features, as well as a pleasant walled rear garden.
A lovely, original front door, with more recently installed, attractive, leaded stained glass and a fanlight, opens into a spacious inner porch. From here a half glazed wooden door opens into the high-ceilinged entrance hallway. With the stairs to the first floor ahead, the hallway also gives access on the right to the bay fronted, through living and dining room. With the kitchen/breakfast room to the rear of the hall, there is also access to the useful cellar space underneath the stairs.
The impressive space of the bay fronted living room has original moulded coving throughout and a gas fire with marble hearth and surround. The dining area to the rear of the high ceilinged room has its own door to the hallway as well as wooden framed French doors to the rear garden.
The cupboard under the stairs has brick steps leading down to a practical and compact cellar. Occupying the area underneath the entrance hall it houses the utility metres and is ideal for wine and beach paraphernalia.
Beyond the door to the cellar a door opens to the spacious kitchen breakfast room. This triple aspect room has numerous wall and base units, with ample roll top work surface areas and space for white goods. A frosted double glazed door opens, from the rear wall of the kitchen, to the charming established walled garden.
To the first floor, a split landing is illuminated by a skylight window and gives access initially to a wc, then a bathroom with basin and wc. Beyond this is a separate walk-in shower and then the door to a dual aspect, double bedroom overlooking the rear garden.
On the upper section of the galleried landing, towards the front of the house, there is a large, useful, original linen cupboard. Opposite this, doors to two double bedrooms. One, overlooking the rear garden and the other, a well appointed bay fronted, master bedroom overlooking Warwick Road. Adjacent, also with a window to the front of the house, is a good sized fourth bedroom.
To the front of the property a practical, concreted space is open to the path and bordered on either side by a low brick wall. A useful rain awning sits above the front door.
The pleasant, established walled rear garden is approximately 46ft long. A patio area wraps round the kitchen and flowing back to the French doors from the dining room. Beyond the patio an artificial grass lawn has raised beds and established borders to the right, and well placed, mature trees to the left. To the rear, there is a practical shed next to the useful back gate.
Cliftonville is a Victorian seaside resort, located on the Thanet peninsula, in the south eastern corner of Kent. Just fourteen miles from the university city of Canterbury, it is dominated by Victorian architecture with some fine examples of the period, many of which can be found in the town centre, where there are covered pedestrian walkways which are so reminiscent of that bygone era.
The beautiful Westbrook Bay beach is less than three quarters of a mile away, where the sand stretches for over a kilometre. The mainline station at Margate is under a mile away and has high speed rail service to London St Pancras in just over 1 hour 30 minutes. There is a secondary school nearby and numerous infant & junior schools.
The popular seaside town of Margate is only a mile away and is a British seaside icon. Three main factors have been key to Margate's renaissance over the past few years. Firstly, in 2011, the Turner Contemporary opened on the seafront the exact spot where Turner himself had lived. The location of the gallery was a coup for the area and brought much-needed attention to Margate's better qualities. At the same time, the local council was helping to regenerate the historic Old Town quarter, encouraging independent businesses to open. And finally, in 2015, after a decade of campaigning, Margate's famous old theme park, Dreamland, reopened for business.
The vibrant city of Canterbury also offers a wide choice of amenities including a fantastic range of High Street and independent retailers, restaurants, pubs, leisure facilities and the very popular, recently refurbished Marlowe Theatre. It has an excellent selection of both state and independent schools, along with three universities, two mainline railway stations, two hospitals and a very good bus service.
There is a regular rail service to London Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street and the high speed rail link connects with London's St. Pancras from Canterbury West station in just under one hour.
