The Corniche is part of an exclusive enclave of individual detached houses, situated on the hillside overlooking the English Channel, approximately 2½ miles from both the ancient Cinque Ports Town of Hythe and the larger town of Folkestone.
The quaint, unspoilt town of Hythe has a selection of independent shops and restaurants, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose), doctors, dentist, etc. There is a monthly farmers’ market and many clubs and societies that welcome new members. There are three golf courses in the vicinity, as well as sailing, bowls, tennis and the Leisure Centre at the Hotel Imperial. The trendy village of Sandgate and long, pebbly beach is only about half-a-mile distant by road, or on foot via a pedestrian path at the end of the road.
The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications as there are main line railway stations within easy reach and an access point for the M20 motorway (Junction 12) only 2 miles away, making it possible to reach Central London within about 1½ hours by both road and rail. The High Speed Rail Link offers a journey time to the City of just under an hour and is available from Folkestone West & Central and also Ashford Stations. The Channel Tunnel Terminal, with regular shuttle services to the Continent, is only just over two miles away and Ashford International Passenger Terminal with Eurostar services to Paris & Brussels is only 20 minutes by car. The ferry port of Dover is approximately 12 miles away.
(All distances are approximate).
This detached house was built in the 1980s and has recently been comprehensively and tastefully modernised and improved, using high quality materials and fittings.
The property has spacious and versatile accommodation, designed to maximise its southerly aspect and the fabulous views of the coastline. Principal rooms are at the rear of the house and the living space is on the upper (entry) level with a large balcony, ideal for al fresco dining, and with bedrooms on the ground floor, adjacent to the garden.
The unusually large, south-facing (double plot) gardens are a particularly delightful feature and have been formally designed to provide a peaceful and relaxing retreat from the pressures of everyday life.
