Toi­let block could be­come a great home

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

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.”
