DESCRIPTION

A rare chance to buy one of just five detached houses tucked away on a little known no-through road, situated on the edge of the village.  In an elevated location the property has the double benefit of lovely channel views to the front and farmland to the rear, yet with easy access to the village, Deal and lovely country and seaside walks.   

Built in the 1960’s (originally as a bungalow) ‘Seafields’ was substantially remodelled and extended by the current owners in the late 1980’s.  Whilst in good order it could now benefit from updating and possibly further remodelling/extending. But with its excellent and rarely available location we believe that this would be a well worthwhile undertaking.  The accommodation currently comprises; entrance lobby, hall 25 x 19’ lounge/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, ground floor bedroom/study with shower room.  On the first floor are 4 good size double bedrooms (one with en-suite) and 2 with doors out to a balcony with lovely views over the garden and Wellington Parade to the channel beyond.  

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.  There is also a highspeed train service from Deal.
