SITUATION
In a prime beachfront location, situated directly on the unspoilt seafront of this ancient Cinque Ports Town, with its long stretches of shingle beaches and on a level approach to the Royal Military Canal and busy High Street, which enjoys a variety of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants. In addition there are 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsbury and Aldi). There is also a selection of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity including tennis, bowls, cricket, squash and sailing clubs as well as water sports facilities. The larger town of Folkestone is less than 5 miles and the Cathedral City of Canterbury is approximately 17 miles distant.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a mainline railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 3 miles) and access to the M20 (Junction 11 - 4 miles). The High Speed Link rail service to Stratford and St Pancras is available from Folkestone West (5 miles) and Ashford International (10 miles), with journey times of 53 and 37 minutes respectively. Eurostar trains to Paris and Brussels also depart from the latter. The Channel Tunnel Terminal is only just over a mile away the ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)

DESCRIPTION
This handsome period house forms the end section of a terrace of similarly attractive properties, fronting the pedestrianised promenade and long stretch of shingle beach. The property commands magnificent views of the sea from each of its principal rooms.


The house offers well presented accommodation which is arranged over five floors, with many original features throughout and incorporating a very comfortable 1 bedroom self contained flat on the lower ground floor which has the potential to generate an additional income if required and could also be incorporated back into the house with relative ease. In addition to the flat there are 2 reception rooms, a well fitted kitchen, 4 bedrooms, a bathroom and two shower rooms and the first floor sitting room opens to a sea facing balcony.

The garden, which is accessed via the dining room, is a particularly attractive space for alfresco entertaining and from where there is direct access to the promenade and beach. We are informed that the garden is held on a license granted by Shepway District Council for which the owners pay a negligible annual fee but there may be the opportunity to purchase this area in the future.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
