An exceptional and versatile period seafront residence in a prime position on Deal seafront, offering uninterrupted views of the channel, and within easy walking distance of the eclectic shops and restaurants.
Otters Hatch has a wonderful seafront location, with fine sea views along the coastline and across the English Channel to France. It is also just a short stroll to the eclectic mix of individual shops, restaurants and cafes that Deal has to offer and is in the heart of the Middle Street Conservation Area, characterised by numerous narrow streets running between the seafront to the award winning High Street. Deal is a traditional seaside town, (one of the Cinque Ports that protected our coastline during the Second World War), and boasts a wide range of amenities including a Grade 11 listed pier and historic Tudor Castle. The town has period charm and is renowned as being the haunt of smugglers in the 18th and 19th centuries. There is a flourishing local community, and plenty of opportunity for outside pursuits including sailing, rowing and sea angling, along with a two mile promenade ideal for cycling and walking. There are several golf courses in the immediate area, in Deal, Walmer and Sandwich. Just a short walk away is the mainline railway service which includes the high speed Javelin link to London St Pancras; both the Eurostar and Euro Tunnel are within 20 miles.
Otters Hatch is a well appointed seafront residence offering versatile accommodation over three floors. A two storey annexe is included, from which the resident owners have created a chic living space and generated income as a holiday let. This could equally well be reinstated as part of the main house for extra accommodation workspace or facilities, and can be entered independently or reached from the house via the central courtyard. Entering the main house through the storm hall, the sitting room with open fireplace and sea views lies to the left, and the dining room is behind. The kitchen /breakfast room is situated at the end of the hallway, and has a range of cream units. Both this and the dining room overlook the courtyard and are bathed in natural light. A neatly fitted wet room is set off the hallway, and a large cellar space underneath the sitting room, with the original coal shoot window from street level, offers further potential. The stairs to the upper levels are decorated with an array of beautifully painted seascape panels, thought to be Victorian. The upper two floors offer five bedrooms, four of which enjoy individual sea views. A bathroom and separate cloakroom are located on the first floor. The annexe is best described as quirky and charming with a front sitting room, dining area and seating space leading to a small modern fitted kitchen to the rear. Upstairs a double bedroom with vaulted ceiling has ample storage space and tiled shower beside with cloakroom facility.
