Property Description

The Glass Onion is a remarkable example of contemporary architecture, enjoying a peaceful situation on the seaward side of Joy Lane, set back from the road and accessed via a long private driveway. This unique family home is conveniently located within walking distance of the beach, golf course and central Whitstable's array of boutique shops and highly regarded restaurants, however due to it's private position, one can easily retreat from the busy town centre. The distance to Whitstable station is less than one mile.

The house has been creatively designed, beautifully styled and finished to an exceptional specification throughout, providing free flowing accommodation, flooded with natural light. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with vaulted ceiling, an impressive glass atrium currently utilised as a sitting room which adjoins the spacious kitchen/dining/family room with feature fireplace and bi-folding doors opening to the garden, a study, utility room, double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a cloakroom. To the first floor there are a further three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, including the master bedroom suite, accessed via a walkway over the atrium and with doors opening to a generous balcony with views towards the sea.

The beautifully landscaped gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property and provide an area of tranquillity in which to relax or entertain, and incorporate a 'Riviera' cedar wood hot tub as well as a barbecue area. A gravelled driveway to the front of the house provides off road parking for a number of vehicles and access to the double garage which incorporates a first floor store room, which is currently used as a music room and is thought suitable for conversion to living accommodation (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).
