We picked out The Downings as a featured property in our Whitstable Times’ advert this week. There’s lots to like about this home and we wanted to take a moment to talk about this property.
When you’ve been driving along the Old Thanet Way have you ever noticed the windmill on the horizon? That’s the area where this home is located. The Downings is a quiet road away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront, but within easy reach of the A299 and bus routes.
Inside and out, this is a beautifully presented, contemporary family home. There’s a few clever ideas in here that we really like.
The home office in the hallway. This is how to have a useable office area, but still keep the spacious calm hallway for visitors.
Glass panelled double doors to the living room. This really creates a feeling of space as well as bringing more light into the central hallway. How do you like that fun use of signage to the kitchen? We like it – it’s charming and inviting.
The living room has a neutral colour palette. Zingy lemon is a fresh modern colour, but it would be to switch up the throw cushions and refresh the look.
Heading into the kitchen, this is a spacious and very effective kitchen diner. We love the breakfast bar for speedy morning meals. This family have put a table for family meals in the second half of the kitchen. However, we think this space could alternatively accommodate squishy, comfy chairs or a sofa for enjoying the view through those full-width, bi-fold doors.
Heading upstairs, we love how the family kept floors clear, but still found a way of putting a bookshelf on the upstairs landing.
There are three large double bedrooms – master bedroom, guest room and a twin bedded children’s room. Even the single room is a good size, with flexibility to be turned into a study, perhaps.
The family bathroom is in good condition. This is probably the room that would most benefit from updating to suit the new owner’s own style.
Heading out the garden…
Landscaped and ready for planting. There’s a great sun terrace for entertaining. Great thought has been given for how a family needs a garden to play, grow and socialise.
