Who needs to travel all the way to Brighton when you can enjoy a taste of the seaside town’s famous beach right here in Kent?
This stunning main facade of this eight-bedroom home in Tunbridge Wells has been finished with pebbles from Brighton Beach.
The property, aptly named Marine House, is more than 30 miles from Brighton, which is home to the largest marina in the UK and one of the most-visited beaches on the country’s southern coast.
The house, now on the market for £2.25 million, has been featured in Nikolaus Pevsner’s Architectural Guide and dates back to around 1830.
It has retained many of its period features, such as working shutters, exposed timber floors, brass door furniture and an original staircase with a mahogany rail.
However, there have also been a number of modern touches added to the property in more recent years, such as the indoor sauna, free-standing bath and shower and the spacious kitchen and breakfast room.
There are also eight bedrooms, including a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a practical utility room, three reception rooms and a snug with a wood-burning stove.
The secluded garden has private seating, a paved courtyard and an area of lawn. There are also two parking spaces at the rear of the courtyard.
The house is less than a five-minute walk from The Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells’ main shopping district with plenty of boutique stores, bars and restaurants.
It’s also only 10 minutes on foot from the town’s train station, which has links to central London, and you can join the M25 in less than 30 minutes in the car.
