5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Marine Parade, Dovercourt

5 2

Guide Price £550,000 - £575,000. A wonderful four/five bedroom detached home with far reaching views over Dovercourt's blue flag beach.

Beautifully positioned in the heart of the delightful town of Dovercourt is number 5 Marine Parade, a wonderfully presented and well-appointed family home that boasts quite magnificent views over Dovercourt's blue flag beach. "There were so many things that attracted us to this property when we came across it almost eighteen years ago, and they are all things that we still undeniably love to this day," says the owner. "Having moved from Dorset to set up our home with a new-born son, we were familiar with a seaside setting and the property offered us a comfortable home from home feel" continues the owner.

The unique, architect designed property was originally commissioned by the Kettle family in the 1920's to cleverly incorporate views of the sea from every bedroom. The Kettles were local lemonade manufacturers within the town and in the 1970's Miss Ida Kettle taught dance lessons in the main drawing room of the property, giving it a real sense of community history.

The owner has lovingly cared for the property over the years, retaining its period features and character. The wonderful master bedroom has views of both the seafront and estuary at the other side of Harwich peninsula. Whilst each of the bedroom windows have the advantage of sea views, the second bedroom arguably has the best of them with the added benefit of French doors opening on to a balcony. "we often sit here and enjoy the views, there is a real serene feeling of calmness and it offers the perfect place to sit and have a coffee or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day".

"It's hard to choose my favourite room; the front sitting room is beautiful on a sunny summers day and also really cosy in the winter and I enjoy listing to music and relaxing there, whilst the main drawing/living room provides a great family space and is ideal for entertaining".

"The property has served us well as a perfect family home in which my son has grown up, we have all developed and extended friendships and associations within this wonderful town in which my partner has lived almost all his life and been long been associated with one of the local Sailing clubs. We have made many friends in our seventeen years here and will take many fond memories with us of our time in this happy home". 

LOCATION Dovercourt is a pretty seaside town within the Tendring district. The blue flag beach is adjacent to the home and there are many activities for a range of ages. From watching the ships sail in with a bag of chips at the front, to fine dining at the renowned Harwich Pier Restaurant and Thai Up At The Quay which has been rewarded best restaurant at the Essex Awards. Dovercourt Town offers an array of amenities from small independent shops to larger chains. There are two railway stations close by, both of which offer links to London Liverpool Street. Primary and secondary schooling is also with easy access. There is a wide range of clubs including two sailing clubs, sea scouts, swimming and sports centre to name a few. During the summer Harwich hosts a number of festivals which really ignite the community spirit, providing enjoyable days out for all of the family. The Electric Palace cinema, Harwich, is one of the oldest purpose-built cinemas in the country and regularly shows films and live streamed events.

The A120 is approximately a 5-minute drive away and offers access to the A12/A14. Harwich International Port provides convenient access by ferry to neighbouring Netherlands and visit Holland, home to the famous Gouda cheese and historic architecture.
