5 bed Detached House
Hengist Road, , Minnis Bay, Birchington, Kent
With its large chimney stack, triple gables, magnificent brickwork with herringbone patterned inserts, individually designed leaded light windows and covered arched entrance porch, you could be forgiven for thinking you were looking at an Elizabethan country house when you first set eyes on the outstanding Reculver House. This stunning detached property can be found at Beach Haven – a charming enclave of five elegant marine residences tucked away at the end of a short cul de sac adjacent to the local sailing club and only a stone's throw from the seafront at the renowned Blue Flag Minnis Bay. Once through the impressive entrance and into the long reception hall you can begin to appreciate the quality of build and the attention to detail that has gone into the construction and fittings of this property. It includes oak doors, engineered oak flooring, underfloor heating and ceramic floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. The internal design is ideal for both family life and for entertaining. There are double doors into both the large lounge and attractive dining room from the hall as well as double doors between the two rooms, providing an excellent space and ambience for dinner parties and family celebrations. To add to the welcoming atmosphere there are fireplaces in both rooms suitable for wood burning stoves as well as two sets of patio doors from the lounge to the terrace and large secluded rear garden, which is not overlooked from any direction. There is a good sized study that could also be used as a music room and a ground floor cloakroom as well as the large kitchen/breakfast room with a peninsular breakfast bar and full length windows and double patio doors to the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room has a vast array of attractive Nicholas Harris Interiors storage units and a range of Neff appliances such as a double oven and induction hob, dishwasher and fridge freezer and an adjacent utility room with the same style units as in the kitchen and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

"When we first saw the site we realised how lucky we were to have access to such a spectacular location – quiet and peaceful yet so close to the miles of sandy beach at the Blue Flag Minnis Bay and the newly refurbished Minnis Bay restaurant virtually on the doorstep. It is extremely rare to find somewhere that special and we realised we needed to build some very impressive houses to reflect the location and that is what we have worked hard to achieve. After all you can be on sitting on the beach in under a minute so the family can be swimming, sunbathing and building sandcastles all day in the summertime or going for a walk along the beach in the winter.
There is a parade of shops nearby for basic requirements and the village of Birchington offers everything you could wish for from a mainline train station to individual shops and supermarkets as well as hairdressers, nail bars, vets and a medical centre. There are some excellent restaurants and pubs in the vicinity plus Quex Park with its museum and outside complex that includes a garden centre, leisure activity areas, craft shops and a livery stables while Quex Barn offers wonderful food shopping in its farmshop and a great eating experience in the restaurant.
The local Birchington primary is a good school and there is also King Ethelbert secondary school and the Ursuline College available in Birchington and Westgate while grammar and private schools can be found in nearby Broadstairs and Ramsgate."
