Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fantastic opportunity to buy a substantial character detached house (up until recently run as a residential care home). Situated right on the beach between the villages of Walmer and Kingsdown with uninterrupted views to the front over the beach to the English Channel and because it is the end property views to the North over the beach in front of Walmer Castle through to Deal Pier.

Believed to have been built originally as a substantial private home in the 1920's it was converted into a care home in the 1970's with a later single storey annexe built in the 1980's providing a purpose built wing containing 8 en-suite double bedrooms bringing the total number of bedrooms to 18.

The property has potential (subject to the usual consents), for either conversion back to a large private house, redevelopment or because of its superb beach front location, conversion into a boutique Bed & Breakfast or continued use as a care home.

WALMER offers a range of amenities along with the famous Castle (just a 2 minute walk) whilst the adjoining coastal town of Deal has a variety of shopping, educational and recreational facilities yet still retains much of its character as a former maritime town. Leisure facilities include the obvious water related pastimes, tennis and croquet and there are several local golf courses
Kingsdown, Royal Cinque Ports at Deal and Royal St Georges at nearby Sandwich. The busy Channel Port of Dover with its docks and cross-Channel services, is seven miles away, offering fast access to the Continent and fast Rail Link access to London St Pancras travelling from nearby Walmer (approx. 2.5 miles) will take just 1hr 20mins.

KINGSDOWN is a former fishing village of charm and character and offers a range of leisure activities. In the village there is a small selection of shops and amenities including a Post Office, Newsagent, Hairdresser, Butcher, three Public Houses, the Church of St Johns and a Primary School (rated outstanding by ofsted). Recreational activities include water sports and fishing along with the Kingsdown Golf Course.
