Description

Sitting on the Deal seafront, looking out over the English Channel, this imaginatively renovated former 18th-century public house offers you the intimacy of an authentic Kentish fishing town. Whether you choose to spend your time sampling the delights of super fresh seafood and local ale, or taking in the limitless fresh air walking the coastal paths, or working on your handicap on one of the local championship golf courses, you’ll end every day in the charm and comfort of this beautiful home. Recently renovated from top to bottom, the property boasts fantastic views across the English Channel. Situated on the edge of the historic old town, it's just two minutes walk from the bustling high street with its quirky shops, dozens of restaurants and bars. Each and every element of this former public house has been carefully considered: From the state-of-the-art private cinema in the old beer cellar to the repurposing of the saloon bar into a bright, yet cosy entertaining and dining space, a modern fully fitted kitchen, with adjoining breakfast-coffee bar, to the creation of five double en-suite bedrooms featuring contemporary furnishings and designer fittings. The house makes a perfect base to explore the areas' exceptional mix of golf courses. Three superb championship links courses, Royal Cinque Ports, Royal St Georges and Princes Golf Club, plus two downland courses in nearby Walmer & Kingsdown and North Foreland. The house is unique for this location given its size, amenities and level of finish. No expense has been spared to create a unique and stylish coastal home set over four floors. All the five en-suite bedrooms have super-king beds, dressed in luxurious White Company bedding and the bathrooms all feature powerful monsoon showers. The spacious, state-of-the-art kitchen comes fully equipped with every item of kitchenware you could possibly need to rustle up anything from a snack to a gourmet meal. The main living area was the former pub's saloon bar, and in tribute to the building’s rich history has been fitted with a copper-topped bar, a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail while looking out across the water. In keeping with the pub theme, there's a second “breakfast and coffee bar” next to the kitchen, an ideal spot for a leisurely morning read. The former beer cellar has been converted into a cinema and is now a secret haven to unwind and indulge a media fix. Guests have access to fast, reliable WiFi in every corner of the property and a large washer and dryer for their personal use. The property has central heating throughout, with underfloor in the en-suites, making it a cosy bolthole even on the chilliest of days. A house manager will be available to assist you with any needs you may have. A truly relaxing escape awaits. Deal is a charming and vibrant town with a profusion of unique and individual shops. There's a great selection of restaurants from fine dining to casual fish and chips, a pub or bar on virtually every street offering all sorts of local beers, ales and ciders. And should you need to work off all that indulgence, coastal trails and bike paths run right past the front door. The area is rich in history and easy to explore on foot, from the mazy smugglers' lanes that run off the photogenic seafront that's home to a sweeping pier and quirky maritime clock, to a brace of Tudor Castles. Take time to prowl the battlements and captain's quarters at Deal Castle, then visit nearby Walmer - this former command post to the Duke of Wellington even features an original pair of his Wellington boots.
