About the property

Sleeps Up To 12. A 6 Bedroom, 6 Bathroom Period House With Stunning Sea Views

This house is a large and well equipped Victorian town house arranged over four floors. We renovated the property in 2013 and this included new bathrooms, kitchen, heating, decoration etc.

We hope the pictures give a flavour of the high standard to which the the property has been renovated.

The house sleeps up to 12 people in 6 bedrooms. However the house is arranged so that it is also possible to be used as 2 fully separate units:

Firstly, a 2 bedroom apartment, complete with 2 ensuite shower rooms, a large open plan sitting room/kitchen and a small self contained rear courtyard.

Secondly, a 4 bedroom house with 2 ensuite shower rooms a family bathroom and further shower room and cloakroom. The house also enjoys a large dining room opening into a modern kitchen, a large and elegant first floor sitting room (with covered verandah and sea views) and a separate family TV and games room, which opens out to the rear garden.

There is an full internal staircase which links the house when used as a whole but which can be locked off top and bottom when the apartment is not rented with the main house.

As well as a generous first floor living room, there is a well appointed kitchen leading into the dining room. There is also a ground floor play room and a door leads out from this room into the garden.

Key Features

*Sleeps up to 12

*6 Bedrooms (4 with ensuite showers)

*Additional bathroom and shower room

*Family friendly

*Opposite a sandy Blue Flag beach

*Free WIFI / broadband access

*Walking distance to all amenities

The house has been furnished to a very high standard and is large and spacious, able to sleep up to 12 people in 6 bedrooms. It is designed to appeal to:

*Large family groups or extended families

*2 families sharing

*Groups of friends wanting a spacious house to share

It is not suitable for stag/hen weekends or for groups under the age of 25.

Practicalities

Please note that the property is laid out over 4 floors with the sitting room on the 1st floor.

There are steps up to both the front door and down to the door to the lower ground floor apartment

The house is well equipped for children of all ages and there are two travel cots to use during your stay. In addition, there is a highchair, booster seats and toys suitable for toddlers, which means that you don’t need to completely fill the car with babies’ or children’s bits and pieces!

For older children, there are games and puzzles as well as a separate ground floor family room equipped with large flat screen TV, video and games console. The room is tucked away at the rear of the house and has its own access into the rear garden

Living Space

Main Living room - This high ceilinged sitting room is at the front of the house, on the first floor. It is a bright and spacious room with superb sea views and French doors leading to the verandah. It is furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs providing a relaxing place to unwind.

The room also has the benefit of a large screen TV, DVD player, and hifi system with Ipod dock.

Family Room - There is also a separate family room on the ground floor which comes equipped with large flat screen TV, video player, games console and sofa. There is also a table football and surround sound hifi system with ipod dock

Kitchen & Dining

For many, one of the main hearts of a house is the kitchen. This is certainly so at the Sea View House, with the spacious modern kitchen providing the hub and connecting to the equally spacious dining room through large double doors. The kitchen is well equipped and includes:

Gaggia automatic espresso coffee machine

Food processor, toaster and kettle

Microwave oven

Large American style fridge freezer with automatic ice maker and separate wine & beer compartment

There is also a plentiful supply of pots pans utensils bowls etc to ensure that you really can cook almost anything during your stay.

Outside there is an outdoor table and chairs to ensure that you can make the most of warm and balmy days on the coast.

Adjoining the kitchen and accessed via interconnecting double doors is the dining room. This room has a large modern table which seats 12 people comfortably. There is also sufficient crockery cutlery serving dishes and glasses to accommodate even the largest groups

Kids & Equipment

With 3 children of our own, we know how stressful holidays can become if the children’s requirements are not met. We also know how difficult it can be to travel with everything needed, particularly for toddlers and babies.

That’s why we have tried to include a variety of things to make your stay easy. As well as the well equipped family room, you will also find (if you need them):

2 X travel cots

2 x High chairs

About Jacqui Barwood

Welcome to our family friendly holiday home. With 3 children of our own, we understand what makes the difference on holiday and so we have equipped the house as a real home from home. As well as a separate family games and TV room, the house is equipped with everything you need for younger children including 2 high chairs, 2 travel cots and lots of children's games and toys

Jacqui Barwood purchased this house in 2012

Why Jacqui Barwood chose Kent

We fell in love with SeaView House as soon as we saw it. With stunning views out over the sea and a Blue Flag beach at the bottom of the steps, it is perfect for family holidays.

We spent almost 2 years restoring this Grade II listed Victorian town house back to its former glory.

The house is full of original Victorian charm complete with a large and elegant first floor sitting room with a covered verandah to enjoy the sea air.

Outside, it's straight onto the coastal footpath - turn left to Westgate on Sea and right to Margate with the Turner Contemporary Gallery and charming Old Town, complete with galleries, cafes and restaurants.

At the rear is a lovely secluded garden.

What makes this house unique

Our house is large and well equipped. It is possible to sleep up to 12 people. However the house is arranged so that it is also possible to be let as 2 fully separate units:

Firstly, a 2 bedroom apartment, complete with 2 ensuite shower rooms, a large open plan sitting room/kitchen and a small self contained rear courtyard.

Secondly, a 4 bedroom house with 2 ensuite shower rooms a family bathroom and further shower room. The house also enjoys a large dining room opening into a modern kitchen, a large and elegant first floor sitting room with covered verandah and sea views and a separate family TV and games room, which opens out to the rear garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in many holiday houses and this was definitely one of the best. The house is beautiful and finished to such a high standard - it was a real treat to stay in and very spacious. The highlight had to be the location. It was fantastic to be able to walk down to the beach (where we spent all day playing on the Saturday) and not having to get in the car all weekend.

8 Sea View Terrace Margate Kent 28 December - 3 January 2017

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully appointed and we were impressed by its spaciousness. We were staying there over New Year so it was lovely to see that Christmas decorations were up as I was expecting to do that myself. All the necessary accoutrements were supplied in more than enough quantities and were of good quality. The semi basement two bed apartment was a perfect arrangement for my daughter and her husband and two children with its own sitting room and dining area. The fact that every bedroom had en suite toilet and shower was a real asset, particularly for my son's family with a young baby. There was a cosy feeling to the main sitting room which is on the first floor with an interesting view over the sea. There was plenty of seating but there were only eight adults, two children and a baby in our party. All the rooms were immaculate and drew oohs and aahs as people saw them for the first time!

Most of the adults had some knowledge of Margate and we were pleased to see how it's developed. We all enjoyed Dreamland, those who went to the Turner Gallery came back with great photos and our regret was that we didn't see the Shell Grotto. We had gone to Margate specifically for the pantomime and we were impressed by the old theatre it was in. Parking was difficult in the town but we were normally alright outside the house. The position of the house in the town meant we could walk to all the places we wanted to go if the weather was alright.

We also went to The Walpole Hotel for tea. I had been there before and was pleased that all my guests were delighted by it.

It was all a celebration for my 70th birthday so we had lunch at The Ambrette in the old town on New Year's Day and the food was superb.

I would recommend the house to friends but a lot of them already live in that area so they're unlikely to need to stay there!

LOVELY SPACIOUS HOUSE

  • 4 of 5

We spent Christmas there with whole family and celebrated my wife's 70th birthday.

All the adults and children had a marvelous time on our third visit to the house.

Easy walk to Margate with all it's eateries and shops plus the lovely beaches which we have used on our summer visits.

House has plenty of room and comfortable furniture.

Stunning beautifully renovated period house; spotless, great location and sea view.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of family members. Loads of room to spread out over the house.

We appreciated everybody having there own bathrooms. Easy free parking - we didn't move the car the whole time we were there!

Room for everyone to have there own space, and great kitchen/dining area to all congregate in to eat.

We loved the seafront location, and being able to go to the beach which was just a stone's throw away without having to take loads of stuff as it was so close. Being on the Promenade meant we could hire bikes and use them frequently - we rode to Reculver Towers, Westgate, Minnis Bay (and stopped off for lunch on the way. Visited The Turner Gallery and The Old Town. Will definitely be back. Thanks so much Jacqui

Good Location for a Family Break

  • 4 of 5

Very good property which was very well equipped. Layout worked really well for us.

The property was clean not spotless though.

Plenty of bedrooms although the basement rooms were a little tired especially the basement front lounge/kitchen. Fortunately there are plenty of other rooms on the ground-floor and upwards. Ensuites or nearby bathrooms to every room, ideal with lots of family/friends.

Fantastic view over Margate Bay and easy walking distance for town/Old Town/Dreamland and the Turner Contemporary. Immediately above the mini-golf course which was excellent and busy, run by a friendly family. Margate has a beautiful sandy beach with great and easy access from the house. Parking easy too but so close to train station that it would be extremely easy to travel by train. Good very local shops.

Owner easily accessible by email if required.

Fantastic location, beautifully appointed house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Sea View Terrace. It is literally across the road from the beach (and down a flight of stairs). Because it was so close, we didn't have to load ourselves up with a day's supplies but could pop back and forth as needed.

The house is beautifully appointed, very nicely decorated and with lots of little touches that made our holiday run smoothly. Plenty of toys for toddlers and books and board games for older kids. Lovely views. We were a family of 2 adults and 3 children (age 3, 6 , 9), and we were joined for a few days by my parents who were able to be with us but also have their own space in the basement apartment. We had masses of space.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Thank you for lovely holiday accommodation.

Excellent, first class in all respects

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Margate, and certainly won't be our last. The accommodation was superb, with plenty of room for our party of 12 and baby (4 weeks old). We especially liked the lounge with balcony, ideal for afternoon chilling with the French doors open and the sound of the sea relaxing us. The range of equipment was extensive, with comfortable furniture and tastefully decorated throughout. The property was clean and well maintained. With regard to customer service, we cannot praise Jacqui and her staff enough. After a four hour journey home, one of our party (me) discovered that I had left my wallet behind in a cupboard drawer. In an above and beyond effort of coordination, Jacqui arranged for Donna to collect said wallet and mail it to me via special delivery, a deed that I was extremely grateful (and relieved) for. Many thanks to both these ladies. Overall, an excellent holiday package.
