Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Ramsgate - 16 Vale Square
Luxurious, 2 bedroom apartment with balcony views across beautiful Vale Square
This beautiful two bedroom apartment overlooks Vale Square, the most pleasant secluded little oasis in the whole of Ramsgate. This area of Ramsgate affords you the peace and serenity you find in prestigious squares in London with the comfort of the sea being at the end of your road. Where else can you boast of such surroundings.
The property has access to this beautiful square, but if you feel a little sluggish and want to admire the square from afar, why sit in your balcony window whilst having breakfast or if a little later in the day, a glass of white wine.
The property has two fabulous bedrooms, a spacious living room, a separate kitchen and a separate dining room, a WC and magnificent bathroom with a marble bath with space for two.
We have off road parking which is hard to coe by in Ramsgate and returning home from your day-trip or visit to the beach, having negotiated the opulent Regency staircase you'll be welcomed back in to the warmth of this charming holiday property.
This stunning apartment, occupying the top two floors of this commanding Regency property, is set on the historic and prestigious Vale Square. It is chic, light and spacious with the ambience of a boutique hotel. The property is listed 4 Star Gold by Visit Kent and as such is stylish, welcoming and flawlessly decorated.
From the moment you enter on the first floor, you are greeted by the stunning, double height, sweeping Regency staircase, carpeted in eye catching red.
The sitting room is south facing with beautiful views over the private garden square. Key features are high ceilings, a Regency fireplace and French doors onto a stone balcony, framed by full-length velvet curtains. The room is carpeted with an original piece from the Royal Festival Hall, the iconic Bat and Ball, designed by Peter Moro and Leslie Martin, which was laid for the Festival of Britain. On the walls the British theme continues with a giant Union Jack wall panel designed by Vivienne Westwood.
The dining room offers another spacious entertaining room with a large wooden table seating four to six people. It contains a feature fireplace and Fornansetti library wallpaper, with a large oversized 1960’s style feature light.
The separate kitchen is well equipped with state of the art Smeg appliances, including a fridge freezer (1950’s style), dishwasher, electric oven, gas hob and microwave. The surfaces are topped with an Iroko wooden worktop with a butler’s sink and gorgeous views onto the garden square.
The master bedroom, on the top floor, is an extremely spacious double with an elegant French Louis bed, mirrored bedside tables, fitted wardrobes, gold silk curtains and feature wallpaper designed by British fashion designer Matthew Williamson.
The second bedroom, has a super king size double bed, side tables, wardrobe and dressing table. From here, there are far reaching views onto the rear garden and over the rooftops of Ramsgate.
The very large marble bathroom is a real feature of this apartment, with full size bath, handheld shower, WC, washbasin and heated towel rail. This bathroom is extremely luxurious with Italian marble throughout. The room enjoys south facing views over the treetops down to the garden square. This is perfect place to relax after a busy day sightseeing and discovering this special part of East Kent.
Ramsgate is a fabulously rich and historical port town with a beautiful beach also and those interested in history as well as natural beauty would be well advised visiting the area to sample the local delights. From Ramsgate's beautiful architecture, through to Margate's old town charm, Sandwich's medieval buildings and Broadstairs quintessential British seaside feel, there is a wide variety of choices of things to do and see.
Recently in the Telegraph, there was an article written about the culinary pedigree of the area and how many of the local restaurants are being nationally recognised. The Sportsman in Seasalter up the road near Whitstable, the well established Eddie Gilberts fish restaurant and Age & Sons, the well renowned local eatery in Ramsgate has had rave reviews. There is a tremendous choice here in East kent and particularly Ramsgate and Thanet.
