Wellfield Road is a sought after cul-de-sac accessed from Shorncliffe Road which provides direct access to Folkestone West Mainline Station. The property is situated within Folkestone's sought after West End only about a mile from Folkestone town centre and a short, level walk from Folkestone West Station where the High Speed Link to London, St Pancras is available (journey times of under an hour). The picturesque Leas Promenade is a pleasant stroll away from where access can be gained to the coastal path at the foot of The Leas which can be followed all the way to Folkestone Harbour with the recently revitalised "Harbour Arm" with champagne bar, restaurants, cafes and live music. The vibrant village of Sandgate with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants is a little further where the long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be found by meandering down one of the pretty lanes or alleyways from the high street. The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe with its bustling High street and Waitrose, is approximately 5 miles away to the west.

There is a variety of sporting facilities available along the coast, including rowing and sailing clubs, cricket, squash and bowls clubs. There are also a choice of golf courses in the immediate vicinity together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre. The High Speed Rail Link service to London, with a journey time to St Pancras of less than an hour, is available at Folkestone West Station and Ashford International (16 miles) and Eurostar services to Paris and Brussels are also available at the latter. The M20 motorway network and the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Cheriton (Calais 35 minutes) are about 1 and 3 miles distant respectively.

Sandling is a particularly attractive detached house of charm and character which has been sympathetically and lovingly restored by the current owners. The accommodation which lies beyond the imposing façade is no less impressive and is impeccably presented throughout. The heavy oak entrance door with original stained glass windows to either side opens to a grand reception hall with an opulent staircase rising to the first floor. Beyond the hall there is a spacious sitting room leading to a delightful garden room and in order to compliment modern lifestyles, the dining room has been opened to the kitchen which is smartly fitted in a contemporary style. From the kitchen access can be gained to the integral garage and a utility room. There is also a cloakroom. The first floor galleried landing, flooded by light from a large window above the stairwell, leads to four bedrooms (the master with en-suite bathroom and the second with dressing room) a family bathroom, separate w.c. and walk in airing cupboard. With some minor reconfiguration there is scope to create a fifth bedroom (subject to obtaining any consents which may be required).

A particularly attractive aspect of the property is the delightfully secluded, mature garden which enjoys a sunny westerly aspect and incorporates a very smart summer house, ideal for alfresco entertaining. There is parking at the front and scope to create more.
