Ashwood lodge is situated on Seafield Road in Broadstairs. Built in the 1890s, as part of the former Wellesley Park Estate this substantial Victorian property now provides five bedrooms, three bathrooms, three reception rooms, double garage and much more.

Seafield Road is approximately a 5 minute walk from Broadstairs Railway's Station.Broadstairs offers a variety of independent stores, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. The award winning beaches at Louisa Bay and Viking Bay are just a 10 minute walk away.

The property is accessed via the grand Victorian front door which opens into an incredibly spacious hallway, this provides access to the three generous reception rooms, two of which boast a working fireplace and French doors which open out onto the private side garden.

At the far end of the hall is the cloak area and access to stairs that lead down into the handy dry cellar, ideal for additional storage. Across the hall is the formal dining room with enough room for all of the family to eat together and this is positioned just off the kitchen, which is fitted with oak wall and base units, worksurfaces and a moveable island. There is a further dining space within the kitchen area with a wonderful vaulted ceiling and bi-folding doors to the garden. There is a useful utility room which continues into a bathroom with seated sitz bath, perfect for showering the children in after they have been on the beach.

An ornate staircase takes you to the first floor, you are welcomed again by a spacious landing area, which has a window seat to enjoy a good book from the family library. The first floor has three double bedrooms and the large family bathroom, fitted with a free standing Victorian rolled top and ball and claw feet bath tub and a separate shower cubicle. The master bedroom has a beautiful dual aspect, with access onto the balcony, which can also be accessed from the second bedroom.

The second floor has two further double bedrooms and a contemporary style bathroom, again with both bath tub and shower. From the second floor landing there is access to the widows watch tower, providing one of the best rooftop views in Broadstairs. From the watch tower you can walk out onto the roof terrace to enjoy the sea views and a 360 degree view on the town.

Externally the property has private gardens to the side and rear. The main garden is mostly laid to lawn with shrubs and fruit trees and has a spacious patio area. In the garden there is a WWII air raid shelter, which is been converted into a large wine cellar with an electricity supply. The walled side garden is low maintenance with potted plants and enjoys the sunshine all afternoon.

At the far end of the rear garden is a double garage which could be used as a home office, as it has electricity and WiFi access. A staircase leads up into the vast loft space above the garage. The garage sits behind double gates and has the potential to be developed into an annex/workspace subject to the relevant planning permission.

The property has been refurbished and maintained sympathetically by the current owners and now offers the perfect opportunity for any growing family looking for a large residence by the seaside. There are a number of local schools within walking distance of the property, this includes private schools such as Haddon Dene Preparatory School and Wellesley House School. Broadstairs Train Station is within walking distance and provides the high speed rail link into London St Pancras.
