3 bed Detached Bungalow
Halliday Drive, Deal
An impressive and unique Grade ll listed property in the sought after location of the Cavalry Barracks, Walmer in Deal. We understand 'Victoria House' has the largest plot on the Cavalry Barracks and dates back to 1795 and was originally one of a pair of cook houses built to supply food to the main accommodation blocks. It was extended between 1872 and 1898 with its twin being demolished in the second half of the 20th century.
As you enter the property you walk into the spacious living room with its high ceiling that reaches an impressive 30ft in the centre. The unique octagonal shape derives from the fact Military cooking was done by supporting large pots over trenches filled with burning coal. A common arrangement was to have a series of eight trenches radiating outwards from a central vent. Further parts of the property were added between 1909 1934 creating this extremely spacious three bedroom home.
The master bedroom is large with steps up to the sleeping area and boasts a corner en-suite shower unit. The second double bedroom at the far end of the property benefits from having a dressing room, which has previously been used as a home office but also has the potential to be converted into another bathroom. There is also another third double bedroom, family bathroom, dining area and kitchen.
Externally the property has plenty of outside space with a good sized lawn area which must be one of the largest in the barracks with wonderful rear views across the local rugby club and playing fields, plus you have the choice of two courtyards to enjoy too. There is also a gated driveway with off street parking for two vehicles.
Close by there is a good range of local amenities, including Walmer railway station, along with the famous Walmer Castle and Gardens. Within walking distance is an excellent primary school and Deal and Betteshanger Rugby Club. The town of Deal offers a wide range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities and high-speed train services run from both Deal and Walmer railway stations to London St. Pancras.
