Overview

About the property

Sleeps Up To 12. A 6 Bedroom, 6 Bathroom Period House With Stunning Sea Views

This house is a large and well equipped Victorian town house arranged over four floors. We renovated the property in 2013 and this included new bathrooms, kitchen, heating, decoration etc.

We hope the pictures give a flavour of the high standard to which the the property has been renovated.

The house sleeps up to 12 people in 6 bedrooms. However the house is arranged so that it is also possible to be used as 2 fully separate units:

Firstly, a 2 bedroom apartment, complete with 2 ensuite shower rooms, a large open plan sitting room/kitchen and a small self contained rear courtyard.

Secondly, a 4 bedroom house with 2 ensuite shower rooms a family bathroom and further shower room and cloakroom. The house also enjoys a large dining room opening into a modern kitchen, a large and elegant first floor sitting room (with covered verandah and sea views) and a separate family TV and games room, which opens out to the rear garden.

There is an full internal staircase which links the house when used as a whole but which can be locked off top and bottom when the apartment is not rented with the main house.

As well as a generous first floor living room, there is a well appointed kitchen leading into the dining room. There is also a ground floor play room and a door leads out from this room into the garden.

Practicalities

Please note that the property is laid out over 4 floors with the sitting room on the 1st floor.

There are steps up to both the front door and down to the door to the lower ground floor apartment

The house is well equipped for children of all ages and there are two travel cots to use during your stay. In addition, there is a highchair, booster seats and toys suitable for toddlers, which means that you don’t need to completely fill the car with babies’ or children’s bits and pieces!

For older children, there are games and puzzles as well as a separate ground floor family room equipped with large flat screen TV, video and games console. The room is tucked away at the rear of the house and has its own access into the rear garden

Living Space

Main Living room - This high ceilinged sitting room is at the front of the house, on the first floor. It is a bright and spacious room with superb sea views and French doors leading to the verandah. It is furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs providing a relaxing place to unwind.

The room also has the benefit of a large screen TV, DVD player, and hifi system with Ipod dock.

Family Room - There is also a separate family room on the ground floor which comes equipped with large flat screen TV, video player, games console and sofa. There is also a table football and surround sound hifi system with ipod dock

Kitchen & Dining

For many, one of the main hearts of a house is the kitchen. This is certainly so at the Sea View House, with the spacious modern kitchen providing the hub and connecting to the equally spacious dining room through large double doors. The kitchen is well equipped and includes:

Gaggia automatic espresso coffee machine

Food processor, toaster and kettle

Microwave oven

Large American style fridge freezer with automatic ice maker and separate wine & beer compartment

There is also a plentiful supply of pots pans utensils bowls etc to ensure that you really can cook almost anything during your stay.

Outside there is an outdoor table and chairs to ensure that you can make the most of warm and balmy days on the coast.

Adjoining the kitchen and accessed via interconnecting double doors is the dining room. This room has a large modern table which seats 12 people comfortably. There is also sufficient crockery cutlery serving dishes and glasses to accommodate even the largest groups

Kids & Equipment

With 3 children of our own, we know how stressful holidays can become if the children’s requirements are not met. We also know how difficult it can be to travel with everything needed, particularly for toddlers and babies.

That’s why we have tried to include a variety of things to make your stay easy. As well as the well equipped family room, you will also find (if you need them):

2 X travel cots

2 x High chairs

About Jacqui Barwood

Welcome to our family friendly holiday home. With 3 children of our own, we understand what makes the difference on holiday and so we have equipped the house as a real home from home. As well as a separate family games and TV room, the house is equipped with everything you need for younger children including 2 high chairs, 2 travel cots and lots of children's games and toys

Jacqui Barwood purchased this house in 2012

Why Jacqui Barwood chose Westbrook

We fell in love with SeaView House as soon as we saw it. With stunning views out over the sea and a Blue Flag beach at the bottom of the steps, it is perfect for family holidays.

We spent almost 2 years restoring this Grade II listed Victorian town house back to its former glory.

The house is full of original Victorian charm complete with a large and elegant first floor sitting room with a covered verandah to enjoy the sea air.

Outside, it's straight onto the coastal footpath - turn left to Westgate on Sea and right to Margate with the Turner Contemporary Gallery and charming Old Town, complete with galleries, cafes and restaurants.

At the rear is a lovely secluded garden.

What makes this house unique

Our house is large and well equipped. It is possible to sleep up to 12 people. However the house is arranged so that it is also possible to be let as 2 fully separate units:

Firstly, a 2 bedroom apartment, complete with 2 ensuite shower rooms, a large open plan sitting room/kitchen and a small self contained rear courtyard.

Secondly, a 4 bedroom house with 2 ensuite shower rooms a family bathroom and further shower room. The house also enjoys a large dining room opening into a modern kitchen, a large and elegant first floor sitting room with covered verandah and sea views and a separate family TV and games room, which opens out to the rear garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in many holiday houses and this was definitely one of the best. The house is beautiful and finished to such a high standard - it was a real treat to stay in and very spacious. The highlight had to be the location. It was fantastic to be able to walk down to the beach (where we spent all day playing on the Saturday) and not having to get in the car all weekend.

Great house in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my 70th birthday celebration to include all my family and children. We all had a memorable time - the sun shone, we all loved the spacious house with all possible amenities, kitchen equipment and plenty of toys to keep the children happy.

I was very impressed by the fact that Jacqui Barwood responded to my emails very promptly, answering any questions I had.

An occasion to remember and treasure

Thank you Jacqui

A Lovely Time

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week being so close to the sea. It was a real treat to see it as soon as you wake up and not having to use the car to get to the beach. The house is very comfortable and the sun shone most days!

A lovely holiday.
