Located in the heart of Whitstable in Harbour Street the property couldn’t be in a more wonderful location. Over 400 years old this property was the very first house to be built on Harbour Street and is now the only residential house on the street. It hosts a fabulous range of history which includes a television feature on Michael Portillo’s Railway Journeys, an aluminium kitchen unit made from WW2 bomber planes, original timber frames from before the fire in the 1700’s and was home to The sea Captain Jasper Rowden. The period features that make this house so charming have been maintained to a high standard and are all in working order.
