6 bed Detached House
Preston Road, , Manston, Ramsgate, Kent
This property is an impressive Victorian residence that has instant kerb appeal from the moment you pull up onto the newly created driveway. Whether it is the symmetry of design or the arch shaped sash windows along the front, inset into deep bays on the ground floor, you will be impatient to see what lies beyond the beautiful stained glass front door. No expense has been spared and no detail omitted in the renovation of this lovely family home yet it has been sensitively undertaken and retains the imposing period features designed in a bygone era of elegance including fireplaces, cast iron radiators and coving. From the entrance hall with its plaster arch and stairs to the first floor, you are drawn into the magnificent L shaped lounge & family area with its ornate archway separating the two. It includes an exquisite marble surround fireplace with a slate covered chimney breast, ornate plaster coving and a large ceiling rose as well as access to the annex. Anyone who enjoys catering will be bowled over by the contemporary and spacious kitchen/breakfast room with its myriad of kitchen units, curved end island breakfast bar with a wine cooler and cupboards. There is an inset range cooker, fridge, freezer and dishwasher and doors to the well fitted utility room and cloakroom. In the separate dining room your guests will be able to appreciate the high skirting boards, ceiling rose and coving as well as the attractive fireplace. The large sitting room includes another fascinating fireplace with log burner and you are able to wander out through the French doors onto the covered terrace on a warm summers evening. There is also the large double integral garage on the ground floor together with a games room that would make an excellent hideaway or potentially a fifth bedroom. On the first floor you will find a large modern family bathroom with a bath and separate shower together with four double bedrooms including two with en suite facilities.The secluded rear garden is surrounded by a wall and fencing and is mainly laid to lawn.

“When we bought the property it hadn't been lived in for about 15 years so was in a somewhat dilapidated state. Over the past 18 months it has been lovingly restored and enhanced and we have made every effort to retain or repair all the beautiful period features that give this superb property its special character, yet also provide everything needed for modern day living.
It is delightful to live down a country lane with fields at the front and countryside around, yet we are only about five minutes drive from the Westwood Cross Shopping Centre and leisure complex with its high street stores, restaurants, Vue cinema and casino and it is only eight minutes to Ramsgate station for the high speed train to London and Canterbury. For golfing enthusiasts we are less than a mile to the Manston Golf Centre and within three or four miles of the Stonelees and St Augustine's golf clubs while for wild life aficionados there is the delightful Pegwell Bay nature reserve. For younger children there are excellent primary schools at nearby Monkton and Minster or Wellesley prep school in Broadstairs and both Broadstairs and Ramsgate offer very good grammar schools and the St Laurence College public school.” Room sizes:Reception Hall: 14'6 x 8.2 + x 14'4 x 5.3 (4.42m x 4.37m)Dining Room: 14'5 into bay (4.40m) x 12'7 (3.84m) narrowing to 11'4 (3.46m)Lounge Area: 19'0 (5.80m) x 15'4 into bay (4.68m) narrowing to 11'5 (3.48m)Dining Area: 10'9 x 9'1 (3.28m x 2.77m)Sitting Room: 15'5 x 13'2 (4.70m x 4.02m)Kitchen/Breakfast Area: 15'8 (4.78m) x 13'6 (4.12m) narrowing to 12'6 (3.81m)Utility Room: 7'6 x 7'1 (2.29m x 2.16m)Rear LobbyCloakroomWine Cellar: 14'3 (4.35m) x 12'4 (3.76m) narrowing to 6'7 (2.01m)Storage AreaSplit Level LandingBedroom 2: 21'4 x 12'8 (6.51m x 3.86m)En-Suite Shower RoomBedroom 3: 12'5 x 11'2 (3.79m x 3.41m)Bedroom 4: 11'5 x 9'8 (3.48m x 2.95m)Family Bath/Shower Room: 12'7 x 6'8 (3.84m x 2.03m)Master Bedroom: 14'7 x 13'3 (4.45m x 4.04m)En-Suite Bath/Shower Room: 12'7 x 6'8 (3.84m x 2.03m)BalconyBedroom 5/Study: 21'7 x 8'9 (6.58m x 2.67m)Rear GardenFront GardenDrivewayDouble Garage: 21'6 x 16'8 (6.56m x 5.08m)
