This grand, Grade II Listed, Georgian townhouse overlooks leafy Hawley Square in the seaside town of Margate, on Kent's east coast. With four floors and upwards of five bedrooms, it offers an incredibly versatile space. Its location puts you right in the centre of Margate, within easy reach of the newly created ‘arts district’, the cobbled old town and just a short walk from the sandy beach.
The house is currently split into three self-contained flats, but it would take very little work to return it back to the original, grand five bedroomed house it once was. Both the basement and ground floor are individual flats, with their own bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. The ground floor, which boasts grand, high ceilings and its own courtyard garden, is a generous one bedroom/studio space. And the basement a one-bedroomed flat with its own street entrance. The most striking of the apartments, and currently the owner’s own residence, is on the first and second floors of the building. It has its own terrace, a separate family bathroom and two generous bedrooms – one of which has an ensuite and its own dressing room.
The property's location is right in the centre of Margate, moments from the charming old town, with its independent restaurants, cafes, galleries and shops, and a short walk to the area's sandy beaches and the Turner Contemporary art gallery. The Carl Freedman Gallery is closer still, as is the soon to open Tracey Emin gallery. The Centre Margate and the High Street are just a minute's walk away.
Margate recently received confirmation of £22 million funding as part of the Government’s Town Deal programme, so the area is on course for continued renovation across its creative, heritage and wellbeing sectors. With the fund, historic buildings such as the Winter Gardens and Dreamland Cinema, are set to be refurbished, whilst better connections throughout the town will be implemented, making walking and cycling routes more attractive. Facilities and access to the coastline will also be improved, including that of Walpole Bay tidal pool - a favourite spot amongst locals.
Margate train station is a 13-minute walk away, just the other side of Margate Beach. London can be reached directly in 1 hour and 24 minutes by rail. The nearby coastal towns of Broadstairs and Ramsgate are easily reached by car, bus or train, whilst slightly further afield are the charming seaside draws of Whitstable, Deal and Sandwich.
