An ice-cream seller is offering a ready-made dream lifestyle by the sea - by putting his whole life up for sale.
Steve Graham, 57, is selling his seaside home, his ice cream shop, and his original 1950s beach hut all as one package - for the bargain price of just £675,000.

The lucky buyers will also bag themselves an original wooden beach hut facing directly onto the waves at nearby Tankerton Slopes, a dinghy with an outboard motor, and views of 'the best sunsets you can see'.
The package gives families the chance to swap the hustle and bustle of city living for a quieter, more laid-back life with just a four-minute commute.
Mr Graham moved to Whitstable 12 years ago and set up a successful florist's, before deciding to open Sundae Sundae five years ago.

The popular ice-cream and sweet shop, which also sells vintage buckets and spades, crab nets and beach furniture, has been a huge hit with local families and the throngs of visitors to the popular seaside town, but he is now ready to move on.
The widower says he is ready to do some travelling and think about his next challenge after losing his wife in 2010, and fighting his own battle with illness.

The three properties were put on the market last Friday on the suitably titled website whitstabledream.com

But having collected all the components of such a good life by the sea, he thought it was a shame to then break up the picturesque portfolio.

Steve has already had dozens of enquiries and has been able to draw up a list of ten 'serious potential buyers'.


The package is being marketed as ideal for anyone looking to move out of the city and start their dream life by the sea, with a ready-made income perfect for young families or retirees
