Property DESCRIPTION

This substantial detached Edwardian residence was built in the early 1900's at the height of the Arts & Crafts movement, believed to be designed by the well known Edwardian architect Rupert Davison and his father Raffles who together were instrumental in portraying and promoting the notion of the 'Ideal Home'. Spurred on by events like the introduction of the Daily Mail Ideal Home Exhibition, the Davison family bridged the gap between the extremes of plain functionality and the necessity for artistically appealing exterior and interior design. You are immediately charmed as you approach this elegant home with the imposing open porch and magnificent solid oak entrance door, as you step inside you will not be disappointed as the charm continues with many original features such as herringbone parquet flooring, beams and the beautiful wide staircase leading to the semi galleried landing. The property has been sympathetically extended, successfully maintaining good natural light throughout and now totals to 4352 Sq ft of accommodation arranged over three floors. On the ground floor is a substantial drawing room with bifolding doors to family room overlooking the rear garden and giving access to a recreation room, the sitting room has dual aspect and the separate dining room is of good size, the L-Shaped fitted kitchen with range cooker opens to a breakfast room and gives access to the utility room and walk-in pantry. In addition on the ground floor is a self contained guest suite with a lounge and kitchenette, bedroom and a shower room. Over the first and second floors are seven double bedrooms, six en-suites and a family bathroom. The enclosed, beautifully maintained landscaped rear garden creates a tranquil setting to relax and enjoy alfresco living and a safe space for children to play. There is a pretty garden to the front and ample off road parking is provided. A great life style location for all the family within a short stroll to Tankerton's parade of shops, restaurants and cafes, along with the delightful Tankerton slopes and seafront. Regular bus services available 250 yards at Tankerton Road to the quaint Harbour Town of Whitstable with it's distinctive character, vibrant atmosphere and delightful range of independent retailers and eateries (approx. 1.1 miles) and the Cathedral City of Canterbury (approx 8.2 miles).
