Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Sitting on the edge of the white cliffs of Dover, The Cliff House occupies one of the most glorious positions along the south coast of England. Privately situated in its own 11.4 acres and surrounded by National Trust land, the property is secluded, private and protected

The main house has been renovated by the past two proprietors and the current owners have carried out extensive redecoration to the main house during their occupation. Each room benefits from the stunning views towards the sea whilst the internal décor harmonises the property with its natural environment.

Downstairs offers flexible living accommodation, with a large drawing room off the kitchen, a triple aspect sitting room, two way snug and compact study. There is also the fabulous master bedroom suite with its own sitting room, dressing room and en suite.

The annexe offers more flexible living space with its double height sitting room, kitchenette and Mezzanine, which also acts as the pool house. There are also two
bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room.

The property sits almost centred in its own 11.5 acres. The flat lawns immediately outside the house make great entertaining and socialising areas, accompanied by a swimming pool and some light woodland. Two large paddocks lie to the front of the property, giving protection and a countryside feel to the arrival and general use of the house. To the north east of the plot lies the grade II listed lighthouse (not in use).

Dolphin's Leap accompanies the lighthouse and sits to the rear of the garden whilst benefitting from having its own entrance away from the main house. To the other side of the plot lies Baby Dolphin, which is currently let out, providing ample ancillary accommodation to the overall property.
