The Dutch House, Broadstairs

£1,250,000

5 Bedroom House For Sale in The Dutch House, Broadstairs

“We bought the Dutch House in 2009 after falling in love with its unique location and set about a complete renovation programme as it was in a completely dilapidated state as the previous owner had lived in one room for many years. We spent the next five years lovingly restoring the property and reinstating period features that give this superb property its special character. At the same time we ensured that we provided everything needed for modern day living. Since then we have had lots of fun times in this house with numerous garden and dinner parties as well as having lots of family and friends to stay. Everyone enjoys the views especially the sunrises and sunsets, while a real treat is seeing the moon reflected on the sea and that is truly magical.

We think that because it has always been a social and holiday venue, that happy atmosphere has pervaded the fabric of the building since everyone who visits us comments on what a lovely feel the house has. Sadly times change and due to the fact that our son is soon to leave for University and we are about to retire, we feel it is time to downsize.

As the property forms part of the North Foreland Estate, we are key holders to its private beach that is accessed via steps and a padlocked tunnel leading through the cliffs. It is the same tunnel that inspired John Buchan to write The 39 Steps during his own stay at North Foreland.

 

It is a delightful place to live with a beautiful beach and country walks all nearby. It is very quiet yet we are only a short distance from the centre of Broadstairs while the renowned North Foreland golf course is on our doorstep. As well as our private beach there is also Joss Bay and Stone Bay so the house is ideal for families who want to enjoy sandy beaches, swimming and surfing in the summer.

Broadstairs is a lovely town with a wide variety of individual shops, beaches, bars and restaurants as well as a cinema and annual events"

Completely renovated from top to bottom the historic Dutch House is a joy to behold. It was originally built around 1906 and was one of the first houses on the North Foreland Estate and, apart from the lighthouse, is at the highest point in Thanet. It started life as the North Foreland Tea House and later became the Dutch Tea House and a stopping off point for visitors to the town. Staff were outfitted in Dutch garb and tea was served on the open terraces and lawns, overlooking the sea. During the war Winston Churchill would pop in and both Vincent Price and Peter Cushing were frequent visitors.During the 1970s the property became the Dutch House Hotel and in the more recent past it had sadly been allowed to fall into total disrepair. However the owners have lovingly and sensitively not only restored it to its former glory but have enhanced it by creating a wonderful and beautifully maintained family home suited to life in the 21st century.If you enter through the attractive gate and walk down the charming path flanked by a pebbled frontage and a raised wild life pond and see the house for the first time, you will be impressed. But once through the front door you can really begin to appreciate the quality of what is on offer from the solid oak flooring to the spaciousness of the accommodation. There is a superb drawing room with a multi fuel burner in the fireplace and panelled... Read more
