A stunning three storey Grade II listed maisonette with a rear garden is available in the highly prized Nelson Crescent, overlooking the marina in Ramsgate. This superb Georgian property was originally built in the early 1800s and has probably one of the best views in the town. Set high overlooking the harbour the panoramic vista from some of the rooms is fantastic and on a clear evening you can even see the twinkling lights of Calais and Cap Gris Nez in the distance across the Channel.
The property has recently undergone a complete programme of refurbishment and is ready for new owners to walk straight in without having to lift a finger other than install their own furniture. It has been sensitively renovated by the owners who have retained some wonderful original Georgian features including the lovely staircase and sash windows, while ensuring there is everything required for comfortable modern day living.
On the first floor there is a superb drawing room with two sets of French doors that open to the newly renovated balcony where you can sit and admire the views of the yachts, pilot boats and lifeboats while drinking your coffee or enjoying a glass of wine. This room is full of period features including high skirting boards, a cast iron fireplace, arched recesses either side of the chimney breast, ornate coving and a ceiling rose with a fascinating lampshade. There is a large archway through to the dining and kitchen area, providing a contemporary open plan feel. The well fitted kitchen has a high quality work surface and a range of virtually brand new and integrated appliances including an oven, induction hob, dishwasher, fridge and freezer.
The property is approached by the front door and its own private entrance. The staircase up from the ground floor entrance hall initially takes you to the first floor half landing. Here you will find a good sized double bedroom or study/sitting room with a charming bay window and adjacent fully refurbished family bathroom. There is also a small utility room leading to the external staircase that goes down to the walled courtyard garden. This includes raised borders with shrubs and an impressive bay tree as well as storage facilities and a back gate to the rear access.
The second floor consists of a large double bedroom overlooking the marina so you can sit up in bed and enjoy the sea view. An adjacent double bedroom with built in cupboards has views over the garden. On the half landing you will find another double bedroom with an adjacent modern family shower room. The top floor incorporates the magnificent master bedroom with double aspect through three sash windows providing even more dramatic vistas over the sea. Adjacent is a superb brand new bathroom with a bath and separate double shower.
"We bought this property as a holiday home about 15 years ago because of its great location and large rooms with stunning sea views. Ramsgate has a much more up-market feel than most other seaside towns, and for us it had the advantage of being closer to London by road than many other seaside resorts. Our children enjoyed their time here as there is lots to do, for example they learnt how to sail dinghies and ride bikes. When we bought the house it was in a very parlous state. Since then we have spent a great deal of time, money and thought in creating the welcoming home you see today. Our builders have renovated it from top to bottom with completely new plumbing, central heating and electrics, including wired ethernet and terrestrial and satellite TV cabling to the principal rooms. We have put in modern bathrooms and a contemporary kitchen, new carpets and even completely renovated the balcony on the first floor. Although its canopy is still the original which was constructed by a local boat builder years ago. However, our children have grown up so it is not used very much, hence our decision to sell while the property is in pristine condition. Even the kitchen and bathrooms have rarely been used and the carpets hardly walked on since we completed the renovation in mid 2019.
Ramsgate is a very vibrant place with its association with Georgian and Victorian royalty in the past and its contemporary ‘cafe society’ of today. For anyone who enjoys a meal out there are some excellent restaurants within a minute's walk while Waitrose and the town centre are very close by. There are numerous bars, cafes and eateries along Harbour Parade and if you have young children the long sandy beaches are within easy reach. As well as the marina, sailors can enjoy the Royal Temple Yacht club that is only a stone’s throw from the house. The town also includes a weekly market, a cinema and theatre as well as the lovely George VI memorial park and wide greensward clifftops that are a delight for walking the dog and cycle rides.
Commuters can be in London in about an hour and a quarter from Ramsgate station and there is easy road access to London, Canterbury and Dover. For older children there is the excellent Chatham House and Clarendon Grammar school as well as St Lawrence College private school and for younger members of the family there are a number of primary schools including Newlands and Holy Trinity Primary schools both rated Outstanding by Ofsted together with Wellesley and St Lawrence Junior prep schools."
