Whether you are newly arrived in Whitstable or a Whitstable-native, most of us can agree that is a multi-layered town. One of the great delights about living and working in this harbour town, is that there’s always more to discover.
The prettiest little cottages can be located just a hop and skip from Harbour Street (including this one on Albert Street). However, these are not the only lovely cottages in town. For quieter locations that quite literally the other side of the tracks, there are the charming ‘county’ streets of Suffolk, Norfolk, Kent and Essex streets.
We are currently marketing a terraced cottage on Suffolk Street. The property has some very welcoming Wisteria growing around the door and windows. Wisteria by the way, can survive and flourish after pruning – this is a very manageable plant!
Inside, this house has been gently restored, ensuring that it has bags of charm and character in its wooden floors, brick walls and open kitchen layout. The white walls provide a calming back drop for the textured exposed brickwork – giving a contemporary edge to this period cottage.
A new owner might choose to extend the kitchen into the side return. However, having opened up the kitchen with a wide arch, this home already achieves the open plan kitchen diner that many families and sociable homeowners are looking for.
Upstairs are two double rooms and a fresh, white bathroom. Check out that chair by the window – that’s a savvy styling touch to show how this is a bathroom to relax in.
Have you got the feeling of a characterful, welcoming home yet? Because we have. Its all to do with the floorboards – even where these are painted white in the bathroom, they seem to bring a great personality to every room in the home.
New owners, guests and children would all be very happy in this home. Even, the sun trap garden is inviting. Happily, because the house is in good condition, a green fingered new owner would be free to create the perfect small garden for this pretty home.
