This handsome semi-detached, 3-bedroom Victorian house is located on the much sought-after Madeira Road in Cliftonville. Sympathetically renovated by the current owners, it blends modern finishes with abundant original features, including sash windows to the front and double wooden doors that open onto the garden at the rear. Spread over two split-level floors and decorated in a palette of calming shades, its welcoming and well-proportioned rooms make this the perfect family home.
Internally, a long hallway with space for coats and shoes leads to the main living space. This includes a lounge area with a shutter-clad bay window, oiled wooden floors and a working fire, plus an adjoining dining room thatâs currently used as an office/playroom. A short flight of stairs down leads to a concealed toilet and a bright and airy kitchen with porcelain herringbone tiles and underfloor heating.
A light-filled stairwell leads to the second floor where a marble-tiled family bathroom with contemporary fixtures and underfloor heating sits next to a quiet double bedroom that offers far-reaching views over Margate and its famous sunsets. Another short flight takes you to a second double bedroom with cast-iron fireplace and the spacious main bedroom, which easily incorporates a king-size bed and wall-to-wall storage. Back on the landing, a ceiling hatch gives access to a generous boarded roof space, which has the potential to be converted (note, the current owners replaced the roof tiles just a couple of years ago).
Outside, a low-maintenance front garden separates the house from the street, while a gated driveway provides off-street parking for one small car and side access. Surrounded by mature trees and full of established planting, the south-facing walled garden to the rear feels sheltered and secluded. Split over multiple levels, it cleverly delineates different zones for dining, relaxing and barbequing, while a generous shed provides excellent storage for tools, bikes and other paraphernalia.
Primely situated between the green spaces of Dane Park and the cafes, restaurants and shops of vibrant Northdown Road, this home is also perfect for popping into Margateâs Old Town or down to the beach (both a 10-minute walk away). Within the catchment area for a number of primary schools (including Cliftonville Primary, rated Outstanding by Ofsted), it's also a short drive/cycle to the train station.
