DESCRIPTION

A characterful individually designed & built detached house in an excellent setting and quiet location adjacent to the village church in arguably one of the most sought after roads in the popular seaside village of Kingsdown yet within a few minutes’ walk of the beach and village centre.

Believed to have built in the late 1940s, ‘Swannington’ has been extended and improved over the years   to make a most comfortable and practical home with large well-proportioned rooms.   For those looking for more accommodation there is ample room to extend the property further.

The accommodation comprises a spacious entrance hall with a wide staircase to the first floor, 20’ x 16’ (6.10m x 4.88m) drawing room with a pine period style fireplace & views out through a sunroom to the garden; 30’ kitchen/dining room, study/bedroom 4, utility room and down stairs cloakroom.  On the first floor are 3 bedrooms (one with an en-suite and all enjoying good Channel views) and a family bathroom. 

Outside double pillars flank the entrance to a gravel driveway/parking area for 3-4 vehicles leading to a  double length  garage with adjoining car port.  The front garden is mainly lawn with shrub borders and a flowering Cherry tree, paved terrace to the front of the property with view of the Church. Private and secluded rear garden, mainly lawn with a variety of mature plants and shrubs, specimen trees, paved seated areas, greenhouse and gate to rear footpath. 

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 John’s 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 including a Summer Festival of Music and the Arts 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).
