Property Description

Full description

The prestigious Hawksdown estate lies in Upper Walmer on the southern outskirts of Deal. This private estate is regarded as one of the most sought after locations of family homes in the area. Sur Mer lies within walking distance of the village centre which provides for everyday needs whilst to the north is the larger centre of Deal which includes the Middle Street Conservation Area and access to the beachfront and pier. Deal town centre has a growing cafe culture with pedestrianised high street, local inns and restaurants along with high street multiples and specialist shops. Schooling is well catered for both in the state and independent sector within the area along with a multitude of informal recreational activities including sailing, tennis and golf. There is a mainline railway station from both Walmer and Deal with access to a high speed connection at peak times and approximately six miles to the south lies the harbour town of Dover with connection to the southern motorway network, ferry services to the continent and high speed rail link to London St Pancras (approximately 67 minutes). The cathedral city of Canterbury is approximately 16 miles away and provides a wide range of cultural, sporting and leisure facilities.
