Full description

A most delightful imposing house situated in an excellent location in the sought after West end of Folkestone within walking distance of Folkestone West train station. This delightful attached house was built circa 1901 and was originally purchased by the current owners as a first floor apartment. During their stay at the property the current owners were able to purchase the ground floor apartment and return the property back into a glorious house keeping most of the original features including the original grand oak staircase. Set in a very generous plot of land with further potential subject to the normal planning consents. Internally the owners have painstakingly restored the house and the structure is filled with beautiful features including fibrous plaster detailing, lincrusta panelling and solid oak panelling throughout the entrance hall and house. The current owners have lived in the villa for over 20 years and no amount of money has spared ensuring the property retains its unique and distinct charm. The owners are keen to find a buyer a who shares the same values towards property of this type and someone who is prepared to continue preserving this amazing dwelling.


The West End of Folkestone is lined with period properties and also features The Grand with it's beautiful seaside promenade, frequented at the turn of the century by Royalty and High Society. There are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants as well as numerous shops and local amenities. The nearby harbour area includes the renown Rock Salt restaurant and a huge regeneration programme proposed in coming years, together with the already established 'creative quarter'. Within a short walk from the high speed rail station, offering fast services to St Pancras in under an hour and with well regarded primary and secondary schools within close proximity. Folkestone is fast being recognised by commuters as the perfect place to be with it's well priced housing stock, easy access to London and glorious situation by the sea. Easy access to the continent by Eurostar services from Ashford International, the Channel Tunnel at Cheriton via Dover harbour. The M20 motorway is a short drive away to London and the M25 orbital.


Built in 1901 Grandem Villa is perhaps one of Folkestone's foremost and finest examples of Edwardian architecture. The villa, built as a second home at the turn of the 20th century is full of interior features, all of which have been lovingly preserved by the current owners. The main part of the house has been bought to the market for the first time in over 50 years exclusively by Reeds Rains Estate Agents.
