About this property

  • Whitstable is a popular coastal town about 8 miles from Canterbury, famous for its oysters which have been collected in the area since Roman times and perhaps more so for the beautiful sunsets that have been captured by artists including J M Turner. Whitstable harbour houses a renowned fish market and every year the town holds a three day Oyster Festival. Tankerton, 0.7 of a mile to the east of the town, is a sought-after residential area with Tankerton Bay, Beach and Tankerton Slopes being classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

    The White House, 10 Marine Parade is an elegant five bedroom property dating from circa 1926 and occupying a prime seafront position in Tankerton and commanding fabulous sea views. The house has been superbly refurbished and interior designed, with the emphasis on attention to detail and specification and is presented in excellent decorative order, with the principal accommodation of over 4,700sq ft being arranged over three floors and with a number of the rooms enjoying the sea views.

    Features include sealed hardwood double glazed windows, some with shutters, oak wood flooring with underfloor heating and individual thermostatic controls, custom-made interior doors with reclaimed handles, intricately restored and replicated stained glass windows and panes. Principal rooms are equipped with an audio entertainment system, recessed ceiling speakers and individual wall control panels.

    Elegant reception rooms together with the impressive reception hall and formal dining room provide superb areas for formal entertaining. Double doors open to the south-facing kitchen/breakfast room/sitting room, a wonderful open area over two levels, which has been cleverly designed to separate this excellent space into three individualised areas, each having a set of French doors that open to the terrace and landscaped garden.

    The stylish kitchen is by John Lewis of Hungerford, and equipped with a range of cupboards and central island. Appliances include two Gaggenau electric ovens, a Miele dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine and wine fridge. To one end the sitting room features a bespoke fireplace with Global gas fire whilst to the other, several steps lead up from the kitchen to the light and airy breakfast room, a versatile space, with automatic Velux skylights. Completing the ground floor is a utility room, a boiler room housing the tanks and water softener and a WC.

    A turned staircase leads to the first floor where there is a 30ft drawing room with three sets of doors opening to the balcony and affording outstanding sea vistas. On the remainder of this floor are three beautifully presented guest bedroom suites, each with balconies and two featuring electric sky lanterns. They all incorporate fitted cupboards and luxuriously appointed, fully tiled shower rooms with sanitary ware by The Water Monopoly and LeFroy Brooks. There is a further bedroom (5) currently used as a gym and a sleek family bathroom.

    Arranged over the entire second floor is the principal bedroom suite with its own balcony, fabulous sea views, walk-through dressing room with bespoke fitted cupboards and stunning bathroom.

    Accessed via two sets of electric gates there is a gravel driveway to the front and an integral garage and electric car charging point. The garden lies to the rear of the house and has been landscaped incorporating structural planting, with box hedging and various shrubs and roses around a lawned area with raised borders. There is a southerly facing terrace spanning the length of the house with outdoor kitchen and a garden store.
