With ample room to extend to 4-5 bedrooms, this two-bedroomed dormer/chalet bungalow, which is believed to have been built in 1926, is located in a quiet area, in an elevated position overlooking Draper's Windmill (with a distant sea view from the lounge/dining room), and within easy walking distance of The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital (QEQM), schools and buses. The house is 1.9 miles from Margate railway station, which is serviced by high-speed trains to London, 1.4 miles from Margate Old Town (with its cafes, and antiques and art shops), the Turner Contemporary and the beach, and 2.5 miles from Westwood Cross with its very wide range of shops, restaurants and entertainment.
Originally built as a three to four-bedroomed home, over the last seven years the house has been refurbished by the current owners, including re-wiring, new gas central heating, double-glazing, re-plastering, cavity wall insulation, and mains water inlet. A twin-coil cylinder has been fitted as part of the heating system, allowing for the installation of solar water-heating panels.
The property comprises a large entrance hall with wooden floors and understairs cupboard, large lounge/dining room, fitted kitchen, separate utility room, downstairs WC, shower room (with basin and WC), and two double bedrooms (one with wooden floors). Most of the rooms have the original wooden doors. There is plenty of eaves storage space and a further small attic above the upstairs landing.
Outside, there are private gardens containing a good-sized driveway with ample parking, and a brick-built garage (requiring some attention). Additionally, there is a large, modern, timber building measuring approx. 32' x 7'.
The house is sited on a good-sized plot with lots of room for development to the side, and it is thought that there is very realistic potential for enlargement to a 4-5 bedroomed property (although potential purchasers should make their own enquiries with the local planning authority).
