SITUATION
Castle Road is a sought after location accessed from the main A259 that runs along the coast between Sandgate and Hythe, and backing directly onto the beach. The property is within moments of the charming and sought-after village centre with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants. The long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be found by stepping out of the rear garden or by meandering down one of the pretty alleyways from the high street and the coastal path can be followed along the foot of The Leas all the way to Folkestone harbour with the recently revitalised "Harbour Arm" with champagne bar, restaurants, cafes and live music.

The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe with its wider range of amenities, including a Waitrose, is approximately 3 miles away to the west and the larger town of Folkestone is about a miles to the east. There is a variety of sporting facilities available along the coast, including rowing and sailing clubs, cricket club and 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 (1 mile) 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 both about 3 miles distant.

DESCRIPTION
This spacious first floor apartment forms part of a stunning period building which is split into just five apartments, all designed to maximise the views of the sea. The property has been owned by the same family for many years and it is fair to say that it now requires updating and improvement. There is scope to reconfigure the accommodation to suit modern lifestyles and the apartment has the potential to provide a particularly comfortable home in a superb location.

There are some lovely original features in the property including joinery, a fireplace and architectural mouldings and the principal rooms each face the sea. The spacious accommodation is currently arranged to include a sitting/dining room, kitchen, large sea facing balcony, 2 bedrooms, study/occasional third bedroom and a bathroom.

There is a delightful communal garden to the rear with direct access to the beach and the property also benefits from its own garage.

LEASE DETAILS
The Apartment - Approx 956 years remaining, Share of Freehold Included.
The Garage - Approx 56 years remaining.

SERVICE CHARGE
The service charge is to be confirmed although the vendors of the apartment have recently paid approx £17,000 towards a planned schedule of repair to the building due to commence Summer 2016.
