A splendid, Grade ll Listed double fronted townhouse situated in a prestigious, beach-front position, enjoying spectacular and uninterrupted sea views in DealÂs bustling conservation area. The property offers spacious and highly versatile accommodation, spread over four floors, with some fine period features throughout.
Formerly a bistro restaurant and coffee house, the property offers an opportunity for anyone looking to run a business, with living accommodation above. However, the current owners have applied for a change of use, from mixed use, back to full residential, which would enable this once grand period house to be restored to a substantial family home.
The front door opens into a spacious sitting room, with exposed beams, two, tall sash windows and an exposed brick fireplace with a wood burning stove. The sitting room opens into a large, open plan kitchen/dining room, with exposed beams and floorboards and French doors to the courtyard garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of bespoke, traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around granite worktops and space for appliances.
An inner lobby leads to a cloakroom/WC, whilst a staircase descends to two cellar rooms below. These both have a brick floor, exposed beams and one serves as a useful storage room and the other as a Âteenagers denÂ.
On the first floor, a central landing leads to two, generously proportioned double bedrooms and a family shower room. The master bedroom is an impressive double bedroom, with an exposed brick fireplace and two tall sash windows which afford spectacular sea views.
Another staircase rises to a central landing on the second floor. This leads to three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
There is a small, yet private courtyard garden, which is mainly paved and sheltered by a covered pergola, which also provides additional storage.
The property is ideally located, right opposite the beach and just a short walk from both the town centre in the bustling town of Deal.
Deal is a popular seaside town which lies eight miles north-east of Dover and eight miles south of Ramsgate. It is a former fishing, mining and garrison town. Close to Deal is Walmer, steeped in history, and a possible location for Julius Caesar's first arrival in Britain.
Deal became a 'limb port' of the Cinque Ports in 1278, and grew into the busiest port in England; today it is a seaside resort and its quaint streets and houses are a reminder of its history along with many ancient buildings and monuments. In 1968, Middle Street was the first Conservation Area in Kent. The coast of France is approximately twenty five miles from the town and is visible on clear days. The impressive Tudor castle was commissioned by King Henry VIII and has an unusual rose shaped floor plan.
There is also a non-League football club, Deal Town FC, which plays at The Charles Sports Ground and a rugby club, Deal & Betteshanger Lions, who play at the old RM Drill Field off Canada Road.
There is a farmerÂs market on Wednesdays, which sells local produce, as well as a well-established market on Saturdays. The town has a strong independent retail sector along with a number of more widely known shops in the town centre. The popular Astor Theatre in Deal offers musical performances, live theatre, exhibitions, movies, classes and clubs.
