Quite simply, this detached house on Cornwall Gardens in Cliftonville is magnificent. Itâs the sort of house you dreamt about living in as a child; it is as close to a perfect family home as you will find anywhere, in ahmâs humble opinion. The combination of beautiful period features (which include exposed wooden floors, stunning stained glass windows, nearly three metre high ceilings on the ground floor and window seats in the main living space) and a clever modern extension to the kitchen, make this the ideal home in which a family can thrive. TheÂ ownerâs impeccable taste in art, graphic design and vintage flea market finds is in abundance and the house is warm, welcoming, bright, relaxed and fun.
The principal rooms on the ground floor are voluminous and have a real connection to the garden. You enter the building from the side of the plot, with the double fronted aspect of the house facing south, as is the garden. The house is just under 3000 sq ft internally and on the ground floor there is an office, a double reception room, the kitchen which opens to a dining area, a pantry, a plant room, a cloakroom and a guest cloakroom. The first floor features the main bedroom (interconnected to another room which could be used as a bedroom or dressing room), two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor are three further double bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate WC.
Externally the garden boasts a vegetable patch and there's off street parking for a number of vehicles. If that wasnât enough there is a double garage in the garden, which would make an incredible studio/office or garage!
This gorgeous property is well located for Margate station, providing convenient connectivity to London, and just a short stroll to the sea. In October 2022, Cliftonville was voted the "8th Coolest Neighbourhood" by Time Out magazine. They describe Cliftonville as "buzzing with a different kind of energy and home to one of the UK's most thriving artistic communities. This up-and-coming district is home to a slew of record shops, cafÃ©s and conscious grocery shops, as well as innovative community-funded venues like queer bar CAMP and gallery Quench."
