Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property is located within the fashionable West End area of Folkestone within level walking distance of town centre shops and both of Folkestone's train stations. The West End features many individual and substantial family residences dated mainly from the early 20th Century. It has a good rail link to London via the high speed trains service to St. Pancras, taking about 53 minutes. There are also good road links to South East London via the M20, and to the Continent via the Channel Tunnel located on the edge of Folkestone, and the ferry services from Dover. This prominent site is located on the corner of Marten Road and Shorncliffe Road and backs on to a new proposed highway being constructed by Bellway Homes Limited as a second access to their residential development site on the former playing fields of Westbrook School.

The site includes an existing detached former Edwardian house which is converted into three large flats and this is believed to have a lift within it. Adjacent is a pair of four storey high former houses used in connection with Westbrook School, the majority of the school now having been sold for redevelopment, both as a care home and also for family housing. The land extends to about 0.093 Ha (0.23 acres) plus the additional allocated car parking. Planning consent has been granted for the demolition of both existing blocks of accommodation, to be replaced with two new buildings in a scheme designed by the award winning local architect, Guy Hollaway. The planning consent in fact relates to three new blocks of which the third block lies on third party land and is not included in this sale. The new blocks of flats have been designed in modern vernacular with the corner block with Marten Road having contemporary elevations with a recessed top floor with a flat roof, both proposed buildings being four storeys in height.
