DESCRIPTION

A wonderful opportunity to acquire a semi-detached period cottage situated within a conservation area, in a superb location, overlooking the beach in the sought after old fishing village of Kingsdown.

Bluebell Cottage and its neighbouring property are believed to be amongst the oldest properties in this part of the village pre-dating the terrace of adjacent cottages. Owned by the vendor for over 30 years it does now require some updating and improvements and possible extending (the neighbouring property has a two-storey extension). Given the character and unique location we consider this would be a worthwhile undertaking.

The accommodation currently comprises of a sun-room, sitting room, snug, rear lobby, kitchen, downstairs shower room and cellar, upstairs are 2 double bedrooms.

The cottage style gardens are partly enclosed by old flint and brick walls. In the rear garden there is a well and tool shed. To the front there is off-road parking. In addition the purchaser would acquire a share in the South Road residents company which owns South Road and the area of beach directly at the front of the cottages

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 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).
