DESCRIPTION  

An interesting and unusual split level modern detached house situated in a quiet location near the centre of the sought after seaside village of Kingsdown.  Built in the 1970’s the property has been substantially extended, remodelled and updated by the current owner to make a lovely character home offering flexible accommodation with potential to use part as a self-contained annexe. 

The accommodation comprises; Entrance lobby, dining hall, kitchen/breakfast room. A short flight of stairs leads up to a  ½ landing, leading to a light and airy living room with 11’ ceiling height and glazed doors opening onto and giving attractive aspect over the rear garden.  On the first floor are 4 bedrooms (1 with en-suite shower room), family bathroom and a utility room.   

Built in the old kitchen garden of a large neighbouring Edwardian property the house benefits from a mature garden setting, retaining a 27’ long former potting shed which makes an attractive and useful feature ideal for its original purpose and/or a garden studio or alfresco dining space.  To the front is a block paved driveway/parking area for 3 cars leading to an integral single garage, gates and steps either side of the house lead to the side and rear gardens, attractively laid out with a large sun terrace, and pond, steps lead up to a lawn area with well stocked plant and shrub borders and the potting shed. 

KINGSDOWN is a former fishing village of charm and character and offers a range of leisure activities.  In he village there is a small selection of shops and amenities including a Newsagent/Post Office, Hairdresser, 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 the Kingsdown Golf Course.  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 nearby Walmer (approx.2.5 miles) takes just 1hr 20mins.
