Hucklow is a magnificent coastal property situated in an enviable position within the North Foreland Estate with direct sea views. Considerable updating during the current ownership has ensured that the house is immaculately presented and offers a fantastic family home with luxuriously appointed entertaining spaces.
Built in the 1920s, the house retains much of its original style and, together with later additions, offers a truly wonderful home. An Arts & Crafts style roundel provides a splendid entrance, opening to an elegant hall. To the right the kitchen and family room runs the full depth of the house, providing a very comfortable and practical day-to-day living space. The kitchen is beautifully fitted to one end with a stylish walnut kitchen by Smallbone of Devizes, there is then ample space for a table and sofa in front of a large window so as to enjoy the sea views. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room.
Across the hall, double doors lead to a generous games room with a bespoke glass-topped bar. Beyond this is a sleek dining room, and two sets of bi-fold doors span the rear elevation allowing direct access to the terrace and pool area behind the house. Double or bi-fold doors from both the games and dining room lead to the drawing room and can be opened to combine the rooms into a fabulous entertaining space in conjunction with a superb cinema room. A door from the drawing room leads to a smart study which enjoys sea views.
The stairs arrive at a bright landing within the roundel with tall, sea facing windows and fitted oak bookshelves. The master bedroom enjoys views over the garden from a roof terrace accessed via large sliding glass doors. There are extensive fitted wardrobes and the en-suite has both a bath and a separate shower. There are three further en-suite bedrooms with the fifth bedroom being adjacent to the family bathroom.
Hucklow is set well back from Cliff Promenade behind a brick wall and wrought iron railings. Double electric gates open to a large paved driveway and there is a double garage. Immediately behind the house is an Italian stone terrace with steps rising to the swimming pool area. A timber cabin houses a sauna, shower and changing room. The garden is a good size and laid to lawn with various mature trees to the far boundary.
