5 bed End of Terrace House
Albion Place, , Ramsgate, Kent
This stunning Regency Grade II listed four storey townhouse, overlooking Albion Gardens and across the sea to France and Belgium, is a superb example of the delights of a bygone era sensitively intertwined with the ultimate in modern day living, created by renowned interior designers. Indeed, it was even featured in the Isle magazine as an ‘Object of Desire’ and includes a variety of historical features such as high coved ceilings, a myriad of fireplaces, refurbished sash windows and shutters. Marrying the old and the new is particularly well illustrated in the large and beautiful kitchen/dining room where at one end you have an elegant dining area with its impressive fireplace and wood burner and a place you can enjoy both family life and the opportunity to entertain guests for meals. However at the other end of this double sized room is a kitchen that will take your breath away. Whether it is the burnished copper hand built units, the two amazing integrated Smeg ovens and their additional accoutrements, the specialist hob with its inbuilt deep fat fryer, the upcycled Peugeot lamps with their Lalique style glass interior above the central island or even the fact that it has two wine coolers, this kitchen is something special. Not to mention the fascinating and very unusual shutters in front of the windows. Also on the ground floor is a walk in store room and cloakroom and access to the basement with its separate holiday flat. On the first floor the landing includes an interesting and imaginative wall covering of decorative buttons handmade by removed wallpaper designer Tracy Kendall, and leads to the vast and attractive lounge and study. This has two lovely fireplaces, one with a wood burning stove, a coved ceiling and a ceiling rose. But the crowning glory is three sets of french doors that lead to a gorgeous wrought iron balcony. Here you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea sitting outside in the sunshine revelling in the panoramic view not only across the Grade II listed Victorian gardens and the Channel but you can also watch the boats bobbing up and down in Ramsgate Royal Harbour’s marina. The second floor is made up of the magnificent master bedroom with yet more stunning views – there is even a walk in dressing room with a sea view! However the real wow factor is reserved for the bath and walk in shower room with its vast bath and separate wet room shower area. What the Owner says:
"We bought this property two years ago because of the stunning location and the amazing interior that was designed with no expense spared by highly respected interior designers. We had expected to stay here for many years but our lives are taking a different turn so it is time to pass custodianship of this wonderful property to someone new. The house has everything we wanted but we have obtained planning permission to knock down and replace the existing garage to create more space, and to include a bin store and a shower room so anyone coming home from the beach or walking the dog can get rid of the sand before going into the house. One of the great things about this house is its location. As well as the impeccable views and access to Albion Gardens it is only a stone's throw from Harbour Street and the town centre as well as the marina and Harbour Parade with its plethora of charming pubs, bars and restaurants. If you have children it is just a short stroll to the sandy beaches while you can enjoy walking or cycling along the East Cliff or see a show or film at the nearby Granville Theatre. Commuters can be in London in about an hour and a quarter from Ramsgate station and there is easy road access to Canterbury and Dover. For older children there is the excellent Chatham House and Clarendon Grammar school as well as St Lawrence College and for younger members of the family there are a number of primary and prep schools".
