*Brand new*

Oh-so stylish, this 3-bedroom getaway is ideal for friends or families looking for a seaside stay on the Kent Coast. Set on a quiet street in trendy Cliftonville, its creation was a true labour of love for its owner, a costume designer who hand-sourced every beautiful detail. Antiques, upcycling… sustainability was hugely important to her vision, and she personally sewed all of the blinds, curtains and soft furnishings using offcuts of top-of-the-range fabrics found on eBay.

Sunlight floods through the house, illuminating rich mustard walls and the jewel tones of the emerald-green sofa and powder-pink chaise longue. Stunning-lime-green cabinetry and marble worktops make the well-stocked kitchen a delight to cook in, and French doors open onto a little grassy garden. Upstairs, 3 bedrooms (one queen, one king, one small double) combine beautiful headboards (handmade) with chic contemporary light fittings, bamboo-framed mirrors and rattan touches. And with Margate’s many independent shops, restaurants and bars on your doorstep — not to mention the tidal pool and beach – you’re perfectly positioned for whatever sort of holiday you’re after.

Getting here: train to Margate then walk (15 mins)

“I work as a costumes production manager for the film and theatre industry, and my love for textiles shines through in the design of this house. I put my heart and soul into refurbishing it; every single item was made by me, from the curtains and cushions to the lampshades, headboards and blinds. I love this house so much, I’ve always dreamed of buying a house one day and this represents all the hard work that went into it for a year.” Owner, Charlotte
