What do you get when you cross a 1960s sea­side bun­ga­low with a lot of imag­i­na­tion? Homes & Liv­ing found out.

Very few of the many Kent homes boast­ing a sea view have the full on marine as­pect of 112, Joy Lane, Whit­stable, just on the mar­ket with Christo­pher Hodg­son.

Re­built on the site of a 1960s bun­ga­low, this strik­ing sea-fac­ing home has been de­signed to take ad­van­tage of the spectacular views across Whit­stable Bay.

At the front, a first floor open plan sit­ting room in­cor­po­rates a kitchen and din­ing area. This opens to a large bal­cony, an­gled to cre­ate the per­fect van­tage point to en­joy the sun set­ting over the Isle of Shep­pey.

To­wards the back of the house, a mag­nif­i­cent glazed atrium rises two storeys, with three sets of fold­ing doors unit­ing the house with a gar­den room and the south-fac­ing land­scaped gar­dens.

The interior is beau­ti­fully pre­sented and lux­u­ri­ously ap­pointed with high spec­i­fi­ca­tion kitchen and bath­room fit­tings and un­der­floor heat­ing.

All four dou­ble bed­rooms, three bath­rooms and util­ity room are on the ground floor and a cen­tral vac­u­um­ing sys­tem has been in­stalled.

Kim Brown of ven­dor Kapra De­vel- Ad­dress: Joy Lane, Whit­stable Price: £850,000 Agent: Christo­pher Hodg­son op­ments re­calls: “It was a com­plete re­de­vel­op­ment that meant our ar­chi­tect, Keith Cat­tell, had a com­pletely blank can­vas.

“I re­mem­ber when he showed us his con­cept and ini­tial draw­ings how ex­cited we were, it’s such a won­der­ful feel­ing look­ing at it now that it has been fin­ished and see­ing th­ese con­cepts re­alised.”

Joy Lane is one of the most favoured lo­ca­tions in Whit­stable, an en­dur­ingly pop­u­lar town with work­ing har­bour.

Whit­stable main­line rail­way sta­tion pro­vides fre­quent ser­vices to Lon­don Vic­to­ria in 90 min­utes.

The high speed train ser­vice pro­vides ac­cess to Lon­don St Pan­cras with a jour­ney time of 73 min­utes.
