Grimston Avenue, Folkesone, CT20 - £995,000

DESCRIPTION
Tower House is a 'one off' not to be missed. A truly unique prospect to acquire an exceptional property in a prime West End location. This handsome period house which dates to circa 1900 has been in the current owners hands for some twenty years during which time they have extensively renovated the property including restoration of the windows and stone mullions, re-rendering, rewiring and plumbing, the restoration and reinstatement of period details such as fireplaces, joinery and decorative architectural mouldings. Much of the interior has also been replastered. However, this is where the restoration of the property has come to an end leaving any intending purchaser a wonderful opportunity to lavish the house with their own cosmetic preferences, decorate to their own taste and choose kitchens etc tailored to suit their own requirements.

Behind the handsome façade the house boasts 4300 square feet of elegantly proportioned accommodation with a wealth of original (or faithfully replicated) features throughout. this includes a grand entrance hall with beautiful original staircase, three wonderful reception rooms all with open fireplaces, a generous kitchen/breakfast room which is quite literally ready for the kitchen of your choice, a utility room and cloakroom. Over the first and second floors are six bedrooms all of a generous size and three bathrooms. At the top of the house is what was originally designed as a billiards room, a cavernous space ideal for those working from home or for use as a cinema room, teenager's den or studio.

The property occupies a generous plot on the westward side of Grimston Avenue and overlooks the beautiful private gardens before it, part of the 'Lord Radnor Estate'. It has a wide frontage to the road with a deep front garden and wide driveway providing off road parking for a number of vehicles and access to the garage. To the rear the garden is walled and enjoys a westerly aspect.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
