There is nothing more delightful than waking up every morning looking out over the sea. However if you can add to that the view of an impressive 15th century castle fort it really is something special and that is the sight that greets you when you look out of the windows of this beautiful early Victorian marine town house and see Deal Castle spread out before you.
The aptly named Keep House is in a Conservation Area and is spread over five floors. It has been beautifully and sensitively refurbished to the highest standards to provide everything needed for today’s discerning owners. However it still retains many of the period features that provide the charm and elegance of a bygone era including spacious rooms, high and coved ceilings, picture rails, fireplaces, high skirtings, sash windows, panelled doors, wood flooring and ceiling roses. On the ground floor there is a large, light and bright formal dining room with its painted wood flooring and wide bay window. Here you can entertain at least a dozen guests to a supper party or a family celebration while the attractive adjacent snug is just the place to relax with a good book and a cup of coffee. Also on the ground floor is the ultra modern kitchen with its range of glossy white unit and a selection of built in appliances including an oven and induction hob, two sink units and a multi purpose Zip tap with boiling and filtered cold water readily available, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and American style fridge freezer. There is also a stable door access to the charming courtyard at the rear of the property where you can enjoy a drink or a barbecue during the summer.
On the lower ground floor there is an impressive contemporary family bathroom with a stand alone claw foot bath and separate shower as well as two bedrooms including a very large double with plenty of fitted cupboards and a lovely bay window. On the first floor there is a very spacious double aspect sitting room created to take advantage of the stunning views across the castle to the sea. It has a wonderfully ornate Victorian fireplace, a bay window and a host of other period features providing a delightfully elegant atmosphere. This split level floor also includes a guest room with an en suite shower and a very useful study for anyone wanting to work from home.
The fascinating master suite on the second floor is a real haven for privacy and relaxation. It includes a lovely bath in the bedroom as well as a very large fitted dressing room and an en suite shower room. While on the top floor you will find another very large bedroom with fitted dressing area and an en suite shower room with panoramic views – ideal for a teenager looking for a bit of privacy and independence.
“I have lived here for the past four years and absolutely love it but sadly business commitments mean I need to move elsewhere. I really enjoy being able to walk to the beach in less than a minute and to be able to look out over the sea. During the past year or so the property has been completely renovated and is just ready for new owners to walk straight into it without having to do anything but put the kettle on.
Deal is considered to be one of the prettiest seaside towns in the South East, with its plethora of period properties, 19th century pier, wonderful independent shops, excellent restaurants, Astor community theatre, long seafront and beaches. There is also a vibrant market every Saturday as well as the Tides swimming pool, tennis and fitness complex for families and sports enthusiasts and the mainline station provides access to the high speed train to Ashford and London.
There is the Kingsdown and Walmer and the Royal Cinque Ports golf clubs for golfing enthusiasts and if you want to go slightly further afield there is also the championship course at Royal St George's as well as Princes. If sailing is your interest there is the Downs Sailing Club with its clubhouse along the Strand – so not far to go and if you enjoy cycling there is a cycle path and promenade along the side of the beach leading to the town centre. Should education be an important issue you will find a number of good primary schools in the area including Downs Primary and the Kingsdown and Ringwould C of E primary rated Outstanding by Ofsted, while Dover, Canterbury and Sandwich offer excellent grammar school facilities with top class private schools in Dover and Canterbury.”
