The house sits in an attractive garden (the rear garden is approx. 180’ depth) laid mainly to lawn with a large sun terrace adjacent to the house, plant shrub borders and a variety of fruit trees, 2 greenhouses, 2 garden sheds and a children’s play house. To the front of the house are 2 blocked paved driveways one leading to a single garage with electric door and connecting door to storeroom/workshop behind.
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. 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 or Martin Mill train stations. (both approx. 2 miles away).
WHAT THE OWNERS SAY
The house and spacious garden has brought our family much happiness and fulfilment especially during the summer months entertaining family and friends and not forgetting the children with the built in trampoline and play house!
The house has a light and airy feel as well as a period charm with many original 1930’s features and sea views from the upstairs rooms.
St James Road is a private road with no fast moving traffic, close to the village centre and just 5 minute walk to the beach and a 2 minute walk to the village school (rated outstanding by ofsted).
Situated in such a prime location we feel we have the best of both worlds, a quiet setting in the lovely seaside village of Kingsdown yet within easy reach of the award winning town of Deal (2.5 miles away) with its great selection of shops, galleries, buzzy restaurants, music scene and of course the pier. Add to that Walmer and Deal castles which have given our family lots of fun, beauty and interesting historical knowledge. The scenic and relaxing walk back along Wellington Parade a delight on a beautiful summer’s day.
We have 3 pubs in the village, one the Zetland overlooks the beach where you can sit and take in the lovely views over the channel.
Kingsdown is an ideal location for children and adults alike, where they can feel happy and secure in a community that is friendly and supportive with many communal events and general get togethers, it truly has a big heart. London is only an 1 hour 15 minutes away (from Martin Mill) on the HS2 into St Pancras.
