Toilet block could become a great home
A detached two-storey seaside home could soon be built on the site of an ugly old toilet block on the promenade at Margate.
Holidaymakers would once spend a penny at the seafront loos on Westbrook Bay Promenade. But the buyer of the tatty former conveniences will need to find around £400,000 to take over the site.
The new owner would then have a unique opportunity to create a contemporary beach front home with uninterrupted sea views.
Permission has already been granted for a detached, two storey, three-bedroom home, following demolition of the building.
Estate agent Joe Charlton, of Strutt & Parker says: “This provides a rare opportunity to create a unique seaside home in a superbly situated building.
“Margate has seen a surge of investment and improvement in recent years, and the town now offers an eclectic mix of bohemian restaurants and cafes, independent/artisan shops and hotels, together with historic Dreamland, a train station and a beautiful, vast sandy coastline, all within a short distance.”
