Period features, if you want them, The Pantiles 1930s four-bedroomed detached house in Ramsgate, Kent has then in abundance. It even packs a 60ft deep wartime air raid shelter, so no doubt added a few years after construction.
According to the agent, the house is an individual architect-designed art deco house in the Westcliff area of Ramsgate, with manta of the original features of that design still present – the windows, the fireplaces, doors, staircase, solid oak flooring, stained glass, oak window seats – even a set of bells for calling in ‘help’ from around the house. See a shot of that on the listing page.
But most interesting of all is that air raid shelter, which has a hatch in the garden and is sized at 60ft. It’s also concrete-lined and still accessible. What would you do with it? Who knows, but no one will hear, whatever you do!
In terms of accommodation, the hallway leads to a sitting room, conservatory, lounge, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, garden/family room, utility room, store room and a boiler room.
Upstairs, you’ll find a galleried landing, four bedrooms, one en-suite bathroom, a family bathroom, a garage and large landscaped grounds with external lighting, revolving summerhouse, pond with fountain and garden room.
If all of that appeals, £470,000 is the asking price.
