It may look like an average bungalow by the sea but this home has a £2million price tag and comes with the USP that, according to Historic England, it is the oldest genuine bungalow in the world.
The six-bedroom property in Spencer Road, Birchington, overlooking the sea, was built by architect John Taylor in 1874 as a holiday home for himself.
And its sea view may be one of the best in the county – as the garden goes directly to the cliff edge.
There is access to the Promenade below via a staircase in the garden but it has been closed off by the current owners.
The Grade II-listed home, which has a 60ft hallway, has a separate annexe for an elderly relative (or antisocial teenager).
Up for sale with Fresh Estates, it is on the market for the first time in almost 40 years.
Its main reception room has an open fireplace and large windows overlooking the back garden and its sea views, while its 'Manston' room has a bar for evening entertaining.
The kitchen has a built-in Aga and there is a separate utility room.
Two of its double bedrooms have en suites, plus there is an L-shaped garage, which could house your collection of beach toys.
