An imposing and impressive detached marine property situated in arguably one of the most sought after locations in the area, enjoying lovely views over the Channel and cliff tops round to the South Foreland lighthouse.
Built in the early 1900s The Goodwins is a character family house designed to take full advantage of its location and views. With road frontage and access onto both Granville Road and Hotel Road, the main entrance is from Hotel Road with a flight of sandstone steps leading up through the landscaped front garden to a stone terrace and loggia. The accommodation comprises hall, sitting room and dining room both enjoying good sea views, a door from the dining room leads into the sunroom. The kitchen is currently at the back of the house as is a study, cloakroom and utility room. There is also a 36 cellar. Upstairs is a spacious landing with a door onto a 36 x 10 verandah enjoying a panoramic view of the Channel and headland. There are 4 double bedrooms (1 with en-suite bathroom) 2 at the front with lovely sea views and 2 overlooking the rear garden, family bathroom and separate W.C. There is also an attic with conversion potential (subject to the usual consents).
Accessed below from Hotel Road is a single garage. The front garden has been landscaped with lawned terraces and fishpond, and is planted with an interesting variety of shrubs and plants. The rear garden is mainly on one level with a large lawned area, fruit trees, greenhouse and tool shed, with a path leading up to Granville Road.
The Goodwins has been owned by the Vendors for 25 years and whilst it has been well maintained and cared for it would now benefit from some updating in particular the kitchen and bathrooms, given the superb location, lovely character of the property we feel that it would be a well worthwhile undertaking.
The village of St Margarets at Cliffe offers local shopping, post office, newsagents/general store, primary school, churches, and restaurants; whilst The Bay itself is sheltered for bathing, fishing, sailing etc. The cliff top to either side of The Bay is mainly in the care of the National Trust and offers some delightful walks. There are golf courses at nearby Kingsdown and Deal with St Georges at Sandwich (the venue of the 2011 British Open). The Cathedral City of Canterbury offers excellent shopping centre together with leisure interest, theatres and County cricket. Dover is 4 miles, Deal 6 miles, Canterbury 16 miles, Channel Tunnel Terminal 14 miles and London 75 miles (all distances are approximate).
