Full description:

Ganymede Lodge is an imposing and substantial period house which stands on a generous plot in a favoured central location close to the town centre. Whitstable mainline railway station is approximately 0.7 of a mile distant. The house enjoys versatile accommodation of impressive proportions and has a light and airy feel with deep bay windows and high ceilings. There may also be considerable scope to extend and/or adapt the existing attic room to provide additional accommodation (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained). Many original details have been retained including fireplaces, joinery and cornicing. The accommodation is currently arranged to provide a generous reception hall, sitting room, dining room, family room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate W.C. Pull down stairs give access to the loft space and an attic room. With a wide frontage in the region of 50 feet, the house is set back from the road and provides ample parking to the front and side with double gates opening to the rear garden. The garden has many mature shrubs and trees offering a delightful sense of seclusion and measures a maximum of 90 feet in length and widens to approximately 65 feet.
