Property Information

This elegant ground floor apartment commands a prominent and prestigious Tankerton seafront location. Located only a short stroll from Whitstable Castle and Orangery Tea Room this lovely home is ideally located to provide easy access to a range of local amenities. Whitstable's working harbour with its array of seafood restaurants (525 yards) are in one direction with Tankerton's parade of shops, restaurants and cafes in the other. This landmark building is believed to date back to the late 1800's and was sympathetically converted into apartments in 2001, retaining its charm, character and class. The apartment provides light and airy accommodation with its high ceilings and large sash windows, of which the current owners have tastefully updated. The property has cleverly fused timeless period charm with a contemporary twist. The accommodation incorporates a spacious entrance hall, large dual aspect lounge with sea views, separate contemporary kitchen with integrated appliances, two double bedrooms with sea views, modern fitted en-suite and spacious separate shower room. The development is maintained to a high standard and comes with the added bonus of a landscaped and enclosed southerly facing communal rear garden. Allocated parking is located to the front for two cars and there are visitor spaces to the rear.

The fashionable town of Whitstable is ¾ of a mile away with its wide variety of individual shops and eateries for which the town has become renowned. The Cathedral City of Canterbury, approximately 7½ miles distant, is a prominent centre of education and offers a wealth of retail and cultural activities together with a selection of museums, art galleries and The Marlowe Theatre.
