Dolphin Street is an impressive, wonderfully large, light-filled townhouse with an interior design style that hearkens back to its Georgian origins. Situated as a through house between Dolphin Street and North Street, two parallel streets that lead up to Deal's attractive seafront, this accommodation is a mere 50 metres away from the beach.
With many original features, the 40 square metre ground floor living room is immediately welcoming, with two open fire places and double doors overlooking the courtyard. Downstairs is a top-end kitchen and dining room that can comfortably seat eight people. It also has the added bonus of a cloakroom on this floor. You can access the courtyard from a stable door which would make outside dining so easy. The fitted white kitchen has been well-equipped with quality kitchenware - cook with Le Creuset cookware, dine off vintage crockery, and wake up to a coffee from the Nespresso coffee maker. Throughout this period home, there are beautiful exposed floorboards covered with rugs.
Packed full of antiques, ornate furniture and artistic paintings this house really is beautiful and has been refurbished to an extremely high standard and specification, making it a comfortable and welcoming holiday home. Sleeping seven, in three bedrooms, with a put up bed for the 7th person, this is a perfect place for families, groups of friends or a couple on a romantic seaside getaway. You are spoilt for choice with the abundance of log fires, wood burner and feature fireplaces to curl up in front of after a busy day exploring. There is even a small courtyard where the sound of the waves breaking on the beach can be heard.
On the first floor is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom - your will have the best night's sleep in the most comfortable, super king size bed. This is an extremely fetching bedroom with colourful chandelier, feature fireplace, pretty paned window with window seat, and a table and chair set positioned by the window. The top floor, with sea views, has two further double bedrooms and a shared shower room with wash basin, wc and heated towel rail. Every room has been beautifully decorated - think Farrow and Ball historic colour palettes - with antique furnishings and modern art. The owner really has thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible.
If you enjoy your audio then you will appreciate the sound bars, the digital radios and mini system in the bedrooms. It goes without saying that there is wifi.
