The building is located on Arthur Road in the Dalby Square conservation area in Cliftonville. Cliftonville is a dense historic urban area that extended Margate eastwards along the coast in the 19th Century. 


Arthur Road is one of a series of streets that extend from Northdown Road, the main road and shopping street, to the seafront. Arthur Road is lined predominately with late C19th/ early C20th terraced houses of various heights, mainly two and three storey terraced houses, with some four storey sections. 


This project is one of four projects funded with significant assistance from the Dalby Square Townscape Heritage Initiative area which we have worked on in close collaboration with Thanet District Council.  The other projects are:

- 12 Arthur Road (Cecil Hotel)

- Dalby Square Car Park

- 1 Dalby Square (soon to be shown on our website)


The aims of this project were to:

- Conserve the original fabric and decorative features of the front facade.

- Reinstate features where inappropriate changes had been made; for example, the UPVC windows were replaced with high-performance timber-framed, double-glazed windows to closely match the details and appearance of the original.
