The Strand, , Walmer, Deal, Kent
If you are looking for a modernised period property on the sea front with uninterrupted views across Walmer Green and the bandstand to the sea, this delightful property in The Strand could be just the answer. Whether you are looking for a permanent home, weekend retreat or a holiday let investment, this attractive double fronted house is charming and offers a lot more surprises than you might imagine once you get beyond the elegant front patio with wrought iron railings and the front door. The building was originally a bank and therefore retains many of its original features including a desk and drawers as well as vaults in the cellar. There is a spacious open plan lounge and dining areas with wood flooring, an attractive fireplace, bay windows with shutters overlooking Walmer Green including one with an unusual built in banquette and shelving in both the lounge and dining areas. This room leads to a very useful study area with an integral desk and shelving and access to a cloakroom and lean to that opens onto a courtyard as well as stairs down to the large cellar – just the place for storing your precious wines. There is also a fitted kitchen that opens onto the courtyard and includes a built in oven, microwave and hob. Upstairs there is a large family shower room and three double bedrooms. Two of these have wonderful views across to the sea including one with a bay window, lovely tiled fireplace with cupboards and shelving either side while the master includes a vast en suite bathroom and a Victorian fireplace. From the courtyard there is a garden store cupboard and a back gate leading to a space for off road parking behind the property and adjacent to York Road. The courtyard also provides access to the two storey annex with its lounge/kitchen area on the ground floor and bedroom with an en suite shower room on the first floor. This would be ideal for staff if you wanted someone to look after the place when you were absent or it could make an excellent guest suite or holiday let. What the Owner says:
“We have thoroughly enjoyed this lovely house as a holiday home for many years but circumstances are such that it is time to relinquish it and hope that another family will be able to get as much pleasure out of it as we have. The best thing about the place has always been the wonderful view and the fact that we can be on the Green or the beach in a couple of seconds. We also have a cafe, bakery and DIY store adjacent so we can always get breakfast or a cup of coffee without going very far.
Deal is quite close by with its wonderful shops, seafront and restaurants while Tides swimming pool complex is not far away. There is the Kingsdown and Walmer and the Royal Cinque Ports golf clubs for golfing enthusiasts and if you want to go slightly further afield there is also the championship course at Royal St George's as well as Princes. If sailing is your interest there is the Downs Sailing Club with its clubhouse along the Strand – so not far to go.
There are a number of good primary schools in the area and both Dover and Sandwich offers excellent grammar school facilities while the mainline station provides access to the high speed train to Ashford and London.”
