Tally Ho is a grade II listed former Ale House that changed to private residential use at the turn of the 20th Century. You can discover this historic building in the pretty Middle Street Conservation Area of Deal. This property has just been launched as a seaside holiday home and the owners have really thought of everything in its design. Tally Ho is packed full of character as many of its period features have been retained. You will find large open fireplaces with exposed brick chimney beasts in many of the rooms as well as beamed ceilings throughout. The furnishings completely complement the original Georgian character of this building.
Interestingly, Tally Ho is actually two separate buildings centered around a pretty courtyard providing distinctive living and sleeping areas so just perfect for larger families and small groups. In the main house, there are two bedrooms plus a bathroom and across the sunny courtyard is the mezzanine with its living room, bedroom and shower room. There is a pretty inner courtyard which is accessable from the glazed passageway which connects the two properties. The accommodation will sleep 6 in total.
You step in through the front door to the formal dining room and immediately you realise just how special this place is - the furniture is in keeping with the the original features of the house. Sitting at the dining room table you can gaze out through the huge Georgian window to watch the world go by on sleepy Middle Street or take in some relaxing TV from the screen fitted over the fireplace; there is also a vintage desk which works well a a compact workspace. From the dining room leads a set of wooden stairs to the first floor with its double and single bedrooms - the treads of the stairs have been painted with an antislip paint. There is a further set of stairs from the first floor to the attic twin bedroom - Please note this is not a full height so therefore not suitable for adults. The galley-style kitchen is reached through the dining room and is well-equipped. There is a lovely window that looks out over the courtyard and there are two stylish barstools under a floating shelf perfectly positioned to enjoy the view. French doors lead to the courtyard or you can continue along the hallway with its decorative Moroccan style floor tiles and ornate mirror to the second part of the house. Here there is a comfortable living room decorated in an wonderful, dramatic style with sofas and armchairs galore. From the living room leads a wooden staircase to the mezzanine level offering a further double bedroom. The shower room is on the ground floor with basin & WC.
