The lure of a superb sea view combined with the charm of this historic Cinque Port town make this home a wonderful choice! Create a roof terrace, like the neighbours are, and it becomes incredible! (subject to planning of course)
The sea has an eternal lure, it is an intrinsic part of our lives and full of incredible historic significance. Standing here by a window, looking out over the rippling waves, there is a calmness that settles upon you, an effortless relaxation that seems to envelop you, something to banish the stresses and strains that often flutter around everyday life.
This four-storey home is positioned upon The Marina, a road stretching along the seafront and, here, you are just on the edge of, but outside Deal Conservation Area.
The location means you seem to enjoy a little more peace and quiet in general, far enough away to avoid the bustle but walk just around the corner and you enter Kent's first Conservation Area and a fascinating stretch of period homes, full of charm and history.
Deal has a lovely character, one that has drawn people through the centuries. The vast stretch of promenade along the water’s edge takes you past period homes, a pier, fishing boats and a castle.
Explore the town centre and Cafes, bars and restaurants vie for your attention, in amongst the narrow lanes and winding streets are a variety of charming shops of varying sizes offering a cornucopia of products. You can shop in a local butcher, purchase fresh fruit and veg from a stand or admire art and curios to your hearts delight.
The high-speed service from St Pancras has made Deal even more of a destination and has simplified the commute for many locals. It is a town of romantics, of artists and one with a pride in its history, one that dates back long before it became a member of the Cinque Ports Confederation.
This home is one that allows you to enjoy the best of Deal.
Over four floors you will find a home that belies its exterior. The rooms facing the sea are the ones you will love the most yet, as you move to the upper floors, from the rear windows you will enjoy a different vista looking inland over the town.
This is somewhere that will make a perfect residence for anyone wanting to focus on the sea, people with lives that take them away often and don't wish to worry about maintenance of a garden. It is somewhere to welcome visitors and can make a brilliant holiday home and even became a favourite in the age of Air B'n'B.
There are so many options of how to use the space here. The first floor sitting room gives a wonderful vantage point from which to enjoy the best of the view, some may choose for it to be a bedroom. The ground floor living room makes for a fun and relaxing family space, just step out, cross the road and you are on the promenade and the beach. Upstairs the bedrooms are lovely sizes with a suite of rooms in one instance and of course you walk up to that fabulous 'attic' room, one upon which you may wish to lavish attentions akin to those the neighbours are entertaining.
Next door is carrying out striking improvements and, looking at the plans, you will see they are making a wonderful roof terrace to capitalise on the stunning aspect over the sea.
It's a project any new owner here may wish to emulate, subject to planning of course, the end result would make that view we have enjoyed from the top of the house all the more 'everyday practical'.
Throughout the home the rooms feel generous in proportions, light streams in to the living room and bedrooms and, for those who will take the handful of steps and egress through the top window, the roof top vantage point provides stunning views, easy to understand why next door have embarked upon that lovely project.
This is a home that is about views, they are fabulous. There is a tiny enclosed inner ‘courtyard’ and a door from the utility room provides side access.
