The Vendor's View - Cardrona is one of the oldest dwellings on Minnis Lane, probably built before WW1 and before the tramway was built along Lewisham Road at the bottom of Minnis Lane, any sign of which has long since disappeared. Looking at it now one would not know it! Purchased at auction, and featured on Homes Under the Hammer, for its development potential, Cardrona has been transformed so that it appears to be a newly built house just like Aliva next door.
The house benefits from a new roof, rear extension and new look faade. The total refurbishment of inside the house has given it a contemporary look with clean lines and spacious rooms ideal for family living.
The best room has to be the semi-open plan kitchen/lounge on the ground floor to the rear of the house. It has double bi-fold doors, opening out to a large enclosed south facing patio, perfect for al fresco dining, BBQs and entertaining! There is a generous lawn area leading up to a double carport and raised kitchen garden to the side. The inside of the house features a ground floor cloakroom, first floor family bathroom and an en-suite for the master bedroom on the second floor. The floor of the cellar has been lowered to make it an ideal store room or wine cellar for bottles brought back from trips to the continent.
River has excellent road links to the A2 (M2) to Canterbury then London and M20 to Channel Tunnel and London. And, High Speed 1 (HS1) offers a fantastic fast train service which takes just an hour and 6 minutes to Kings Cross St Pancras, leaving every hour!
River is easily the most desirable area in Dover. It has easy access to good schools and local shops, but Minnis Lane itself is quiet. A 5 minute walks up Minnis Lane to the ruined Abbey leads to the open countryside of the Alkam Valley. This part of the Kent Downs, between Folkestone and Dover, is an area of outstanding natural beauty very popular for horse riding and hiking.
