EPC:D

A very rare chance to acquire a detached character beachfront property situated on the border of Kingsdown and Walmer, enjoying a superb location with uninterrupted views over the beach and channel to the coast of France.

Built in the early 1900′s the property retains many of its Edwardian features with light and spacious well proportioned rooms, all enjoying wonderful views over either the beach and sea or over the attractively landscaped rear gardens.

The current owners have made a number of improvements including a new roof, replacement windows to the seaward side, re-modelling the kitchen and conversion of the former garage into a games room. 

They have also had the rear garden professionally landscaped to create a lovely outside space with a large sandstone terrace, raised beds planted with an interesting variety of plant and shrubs, trellis partially screens a lawned area and at the end the garden is an ‘Alfresco’ pergola dining area with a tool shed and pond.

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 Newsagent/Post Office, 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 Walmer & Kingsdown Golf Course. A further three Champion golf courses are a short drive away including Royal St Georges in Sandwich (venue for the British Open). The historic coastal town of DEAL has a good variety of shopping and leisure facilities yet still retains much of its character as a former maritime town. 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 the nearest station at Walmer (1hr 15mins).
The accommodation with approximate measurements comprises:
Oak panelled front door with stained glass panels.
