Description

St Margaret’s Bay has long been a retreat of the rich and famous. Former residents include Noel Coward, Peter Ustinov and Ian Fleming whose book ‘Moonraker’ makes specific reference to James Bond visiting St Margaret’s Bay and staying at The Old Granville Hotel while in pursuit of the evil Hugo Drax

A truly exceptional detached marine property situated in one of the most sought after locations on the South East Coast enjoying lovely Channel views.

Designed and constructed to a high standard to maximise on its location and views and incorporating modern innovations – ‘Moonraker’ offers the opportunity for contemporary style living in a lovely location.

The accommodation is arranged over three levels comprising spacious entrance hall, double doors lead into a large family/games room/bedroom 5 currently arranged as a self-contained guest suite with doors into a bathroom with sauna, double bath jacuzzi and an adjacent kitchenette. On the opposite side of the hall is a guest bedroom with ensuite bathroom, also at this level is a utility/boiler room, from the hall an oak staircase with inset lighting rises to an open plan landing opening into the dining room with patio doors onto a balcony with lovely sea views, off the dining room is a study, cloakroom and steps up to the kitchen/breakfast room. Like the rest of the property the kitchen is fitted out to a very high standard with a full range of built-in appliances as well as extras including coffee making machine, wine cooler and American style fridge/freezer. From the landing double doors open into the main reception area, this is an exceptional double height space with a large window giving an exceptional view over The Channel with doors opening onto a semi circular balcony. Stairs lead up to a bedroom suite with its own balcony and ensuite shower room, the stairs continue to the top level opening onto an open plan landing and galleried living area with stainless steel and plate glass handrail overlooking the main reception room and enjoying the same views. Off the upper landing is the main bedroom with its own balcony and enjoying Channel views, a further bedroom with sea views from a side window and family bathroom. The house is heated by a gas fired boiler supplying an underfloor heating system throughout with pressurised hot water system.

Thought and effort has also been given to the external areas of the house, remote controlled electronic double gates (with video entry phone) open to a block paved driveway/parking area for 5/6 vehicles and single garage with remote up and over door. Following the curve of the house, steps lead up to a further decked area to the side and rear, with a second decked area accessed from the kitchen having the most fine sea view ‘ideal for alfresco entertaining‘. To the rear of the house the gardens have been landscaped with a gradual sloping lawn interspaced with interesting plants and shrubs, leading up to a level lawned area enclosed on 2 sides by an old high brick wall (the site was originally a walled orchard). At the higher level is a further paved seating area from which to enjoy the garden and views.

The village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe offers local shopping, post office, newsagent/general store, primary school and churches, whilst The Bay itself is sheltered for bathing, fishing, and sailing. 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 George’s at Sandwich (venue of the British Open). The Cathedral City of Canterbury offers an excellent shopping centre together with leisure interests, 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).
