An established guesthouse in the coastal town of Broadstairs in North East Kent is being marketed by Christie + Co.
The Grade II-listed Dundonald hotel is sited in the conservation area of Broadstairs, whose attractions include sandy beaches, its maritime history and its literary connections with Victorian novelist Charles Dickens.
The town is home to both Bleak House and the Dickens House Museum.
The Virginia creeper-fronted guesthouse is one of three properties once known as Belvedere House, a late Georgian mansion originally built for Admiral Dundonald.
Along with nine bedrooms (six of them en-suite), the guesthouse offers a residents' lounge, a small lounge bar, a 24-seat dining room and an enclosed courtyard to the rear.
It also has a double en-suite bedroom that is currently used by the owners.
"The Dundonald House Hotel has been a guest house for a number of years and presently runs as a bed and breakfast operation with ETC three-diamond accreditation," said Simon Bland of Christie + Co's Maidstone office.
"The guest house is open all year round and is, in our view, an excellent opportunity to take over a long-established going concern in this busy seaside town."
Christie + Co is seeking offers from £550,000 for the freehold on behalf of current owners David and Jacqui Murphy.
