Full description:

Copeland House is an elegant period property which currently operates as a highly regarded Bed and Breakfast but, with relative ease, could be reinstated as a comfortable family home with well proportioned accommodation over three floors and sea views from the first floor. The property is situated in a prime Island Wall location within seconds of the sea and a short stroll from the bustling High Street. The mainline railway station is approximately 0.7 of a mile distant. The attractively presented accommodation is currently arranged to provide an inviting entrance hall, a generous reception room, kitchen, utility room, six bedrooms (four with en-suite shower rooms) and two additional shower rooms. There is also a cellar. To the rear of the house the enchanting courtyard garden is well enclosed by mature shrubs and other plants affording a good level of privacy. There is a gate to the rear opening to an alleyway leading directly to the beach.

LOCATION:
Island Wall is considered to be one of the most desirable residential locations in Whitstable and forms part of one of the peaceful and idyllic situations for which the town is renowned. Whitstable itself is a charming town by the sea with its working harbour and colourful streets of fisherman\'s cottages. Just a short stroll will take you into the High Street with its diverse range of busy shops, Post Office and restaurants specialising in local seafood. The mainline railway station at Whitstable provides frequent services to London, (Victoria approximately 1hr 20mins.)
