We are delighted to offer for sale Grapevine Cottage which has been owned by the same family since 1945! This charming and quirky cottage, which has accommodation arranged over three floors, has a wealth of period features and the deceptively sized accommodation is very welcoming. The external flint walls, tucked away basement, original latch doors, double staircase, exposed timbers, stone flooring and a wonderful inglenook fireplace are just a few delights to be found at the quintessential cottage. The charm does not finish with the cottage, as the gardens which surround the property are extremely well stocked and have been lovingly nurtured and carefully planned out, and offer secluded seating areas which allow you the time to enjoy these lovely surroundings. There is ample off road parking via a five bar wooden gate which in turn leads to a large double garage/workshop. This detached building would lend itself perfectly as a potential annexe subject to obtaining the appropriate planning consent. Although the cottage has been very well maintained, it is now ready to be sympathetically restored and updated back to its former glory. The property is situated in St Peters where local amenities include a post office, primary school and church. Nearby is Broadstairs town centre which offers a wide range of amenities including supermarkets, independent shops, banks, Post Office, chemist, doctor’s and dentist’s surgeries, restaurants and public houses. There is a good range of schooling for all ages and abilities in Broadstairs. Broadstairs railway station connects to London Victoria or alternatively the high speed service goes to St Pancras.
