Last year we were very lucky to view a property a stones throw from our home, which had sadly been left to fall into a very sad state. It is a Grade II listed property, built in 1731. My husband Simon, remembers it from his childhood when it used to be a boat chandlers. Well, back to today, and after many many weeks (19 to be exact), the property finally became ours. So, what are our plans for it? Well firstly, we're keeping the name, as in Queenborough Bosuns is known by many, but we are going to turn it into a little tea room/coffee shop. It will also have a small gift shop in the back, and the flat upstairs will be an AirB&B. So let me take you on a little tour of it, as it stands now.
This was taken on completion day, and oh my word we were just so excited.
On the ground floor, we have the room that you first walk into, then a room behind, and then a kitchen and downstairs toilet.
Upstairs is on two levels, with bedrooms at the very top. One room has an amazing view of the sea.
There you have it. Sorry, its been a little photo heavy. We are under no illusions as to how much work it needs but I'm looking forward to the challenge of taking this beautiful building forward as well as keeping and putting back as many original features as possible.
