DEAL TOWN CENTRE APPROXIMATE 1 MILE
An impressive and unusual property forming part of the old gymnasium building (Built in 1871) which has been converted into 11 unique properties situated within the attractive gated development of the former Royal Marines South Barracks.
The South Barracks is situated in a quiet yet very convenient location, just off The Strand, which fronts the beach and has a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.
Deal is within easy walking distance (approximately 1 mile) this combination of a character and attractive gated development in an excellent location makes these properties highly sought after.
WALMER offers a range of amenities, local shops, primary and academy schools along with the famous Castle 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 (Venue for the British Open in 2020). The busy Channel Port of Dover with its docks and cross-Channel services, is approx. eight miles away offering fast access to the Continent and high speed Rail Link to London St Pancras travelling from nearby Walmer station (approx. ½ mile) will take just 1hr 20mins. There is also a fast train service from Deal.
The accommodation with approximate measurements comprises:
