An extremely rare chance to acquire one of the much sought after ‘South Road’ cottages. Situated in a lovely location just a stone’s throw from the sea with a sunny south facing aspect and uninterrupted views over privately owned wildflower meadow designated as a site of special scientific interest which together with the road is jointly owned by the residents of South Road. Beyond this is a view of the Channel and Iconic White Cliffs.
Believed to be built in the 1880’s the cottages were originally occupied by local fisherman but from the 1920’s they have been much in demand as the Ideal seaside holiday home, many have never come on the open market being passed down through families. It is therefore very rare for one to come up for sale.
The ground floor comprises a sunny south facing sitting room with a bay window giving a lovely view over the wildflower meadow and to the Channel and Cliffs. Beyond this is the dining room, kitchen, utility and bathroom. On the first floor are 2 bedrooms, the main one having uninterrupted views over the Meadow, Channel and Cliffs. There is also a cloakroom at this level several neighbouring properties have converted the attic into further accommodation, this would be possible of ‘Bosun Cottage’ (subject to the usual consent).
To the front of the cottage is a small garden area, to the rear is a private courtyard style garden with shingle, seating area and tool shed. A pedestrian gate opens to a pathway leading to the beach.
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, 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.
