Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Unique in all respects and formed and crafted from a former second World War gun emplacement, The Gunnery is set in a commanding position with unrivalled 180 degree views of the Channel, looking over the charming village of Kingsdown to the east, towards the iconic White Cliffs to the west and France to the south!

Approached off the lower beach road (Undercliffe Road), the driveway leads through custom-made metal gates to a parking area in front of the double garage. To the left of the garage an entrance door opens to a tunnel that leads through the cliff to a lift. The glass lift gives swift access to the house.

On arriving in the entrance hall one is immediately aware of the unique and special nature of this exceptional and individual home. A central passageway leads to the main living space - a room of 50’ with three distinct areas and floor to ceiling windows on two sides affording the most stunning sea views.

The sitting area has an ante chamber with fitted shelves formed around one of the original gun emplacements. Facing this is an integrated wine cellar. At the far end of the room is a sleek and discreet fitted kitchen with a large peninsula breakfast bar and a dining area. These areas combine to form the heart of the house.

The master bedroom is a stunning 32’ room with doors leading onto the terrace. A separate dressing room and a large bathroom complete the suite. Bedroom suite 2 is an equally generous room with en-suite bathroom and doors leading to the side terrace. Bedroom suite 3 adjoins and has an en-suite shower room. The accommodation on this level is completed by a study, plant room and a cloakroom.

Off the passageway are stairs descending to
the lower ground floor. Bedroom 4 is a lovely
room lit from above by a sky light and doors
to the sunken courtyard. The passageway
continues to the cinema room at the end.

In creating this house, the vendors have incorporated a number of innovative technologies, including high-end lighting and sound specifications, and Italian sanitary ware. A sophisticated heating and air conditioning system is provided by an air source heat pump. A dedicated and exclusive broadband line to the house will provide adequate download and upload speed to operate the house.

The Gunnery is situated in a prestigious location on the outskirts of the village and above the sheltered beach set within the lee of the White Cliffs of Dover, a recognised Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty.

Kingsdown is a quiet seaside village which offers a selection of local amenities, including well regarded schools, a village store, butcher, Post Office and three public houses. The area offers plenty of outdoor pursuits with lovely coastal cliff walks, fishing, sailing, tennis and three golf courses. Deal itself offers a wide range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities, and the neighbouring towns of Sandwich, Dover and Canterbury are easily accessed via the A2 and A258 and together provide a comprehensive range of services.

Railway stations at Deal and Walmer provide connections to Ramsgate, Sandwich, Dover and London. The High Speed link runs from Walmer to London St. Pancras in around 85 minutes. Access to the Continent is excellent via the Port of Dover, the Channel Tunnel terminal at Folkestone and Eurostar services from Ashford International.

The gardens surrounding the house have been developed to take full advantage of the stunning location. A terrace runs the full width of the house with a glass balustrade giving unbroken views. To one side is a raised terrace with a covered barbecue area.

To the rear are raised and terraced beds, and a rear access pedestrian gate. The sale of The Gunnery also includes an area of beach immediately in front of the house.
