Striking house with beautiful sea views
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.

“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.”
