Property description

Tower House is an elegant and most unique period home, commanding a prominent seafront position with spectacular sea views across the estuary and beyond.This substantial property covers 3058 sq ft (284 sq m) sprawling over three floors with an array of interesting features and rooms palatial in size. An opulent entrance hall provides an immediate sense of grandeur and leads to three principle reception rooms. The main sitting room with its attractive turret boasts direct sea views framed by the colourful beach huts that run along the esplanade. The sea facing dining room with its beautiful fireplace is perfect for formal entertaining and a separate family room is found to the side. The impressive kitchen/breakfast room lies to the rear of the property with extensive fitted units and stunning granite work surfaces. The kitchen spills into a large conservatory, providing an incredibly sociable entertaining space. A very handy utility room and a downstairs WC concludes the ground floor.An attractive balustrade staircase rises to a spacious landing, presenting a separate WC, family bathroom and four superb double size bedrooms, each with a feature fireplace and sea views from three rooms.The master bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom and panoramic sea views are enjoyed from the turret. There is certainly no compromise in the family bathroom with both a bath and separate double walk-in shower cubicle. You will then find two vast attic rooms, one of which features the cone of the turret, providing an excellent vantage point with extensive views along the coast and across the town. Other features include original cornices, underfloor heating to the kitchen and conservatory, gas fired central heating, a water softener, air conditioning and double glazed windows.The paved south facing rear garden basks in sunshine throughout the day in spring/summer months with established flower beds to the perimeter. A separate screened area also provides privacy for a hot tub. Ample off-road parking is provided to the side of the property via a driveway providing a screened parking area and access to a garage with workshop space to the rear.What The Owners Say:Our whole family has loved living in Tower House for the last 8 years. It is light, bright, sunny and has a warm, cosy yet spacious and inviting feel as well as being a great party house. The location is fantastic; amazing sea views and located on the beautiful Hampton side of Herne Bay. However, at night it is so quiet you could be in deep countryside. Herne Bay has plenty of leisure opportunities - coastal cycling, walking, running and fitness centres as well as some top class restaurants. We are planning to move on to a smaller house because our youngest son is about to leave school and we no longer need all these rooms.Location:Western Esplanade is a premier sea front location in Herne Bay which is an extremely popular coastal town benefitting from a range of local amenities including retail outlets and educational facilities. There are also a good range of leisure amenities including rowing, sailing and yacht clubs along with a swimming pool and cinema. An array coffee shops, independent eateries and good restaurants are found within the town centre. The mainline railway station (approximately 1 mile distant) offers fast and frequent links to London Victoria in approximately 85 minutes as well as London St Pancras in approximately 87mins. The property also offers excellent access to the A299 which gives access to the A2/ M2 motorway network. The working harbour town of Whitstable is only 5 miles distant which enjoys a variety of shopping, educational and leisure amenities including sailing, water sports and bird watching, as well as the seafood restaurants for which it has become renowned. The City of Canterbury is approximately eight miles distant with its Cathedral, theatre and cultural amenities, as well as benefiting from excellent public and state schools. The City also boasts the facilities of a major shopping centre enjoying a range of mainstream retail outlets as well as many individual shops.
