Inner hall cloakroom, utility room and impressive kitchen/dining room with bi-fold doors opening onto a sundeck overlooking the rear garden.

On the first floor a spacious landing leads to three good sized double bedrooms one with an en suite shower room and a family bathroom with roll top bath and Victorian style sanitary ware. All the bedrooms have lovely views over the surrounding countryside. If required the main bedroom could be divided in two to create a 4th bedroom.

 

Maydensole is a small Hamlet close to the villages of Ashley and East Studdal some three miles south west of Deal and 3 miles north east of Dover. The 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.  There are several local golf courses, Royal Cinque Ports at Deal, (just a few minutes’ drive away), Princes and Royal St Georges (venue of the British Open) at nearby Sandwich and also at Kingsdown. Other leisure facilities include the obvious water related pastimes, local squash club, rowing club, tennis and croquet and sailing clubs at nearby Walmer. The busy Channel Port of Dover and the Tunnel at Folkestone are within easy reach offering the added benefit of regular access to the Continent. At present there is also a fast train service from Deal, (to London St Pancras approx. 1hr 19mins).
