This is a rare opportunity to holiday in a beautiful Queen Anne beach house in the lovely seaside village of Sandgate. The rooms are luxurious with French inspired antiques combined with lots of modern touches to make your Kent holiday a memorable one.
This Kent holiday house has been lovingly restored offering timeless beauty with a wonderful fusion of old and new. A particularly stunning addition is the modern curved extension, built to reflect the shape of a wave. It is mostly made of glass with concertina doors that can be folded back to bring the decking overlooking the sea into the living space. Four luxurious double bedrooms, or twins should you request it, all with their own ensuite bathrooms complete the scene.
All in all this Kent holiday house has real wow factor, pretty as a picture, spectacular uninterrupted seas views and a convenient location within 90 minutes drive of London and 45 minutes on the High Speed train.
