An interesting opportunity to purchase a detached character period cottage, set in a pretty south facing walled garden in the sought-after seaside village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe.
An inscription on the side wall of the cottage gives a date of 1758 with another below saying restored 1962. It does now require updating and improvements, most noticeably the kitchen, bathroom and windows, but given its character, pretty walled garden and location we feel this would be a worthwhile and rewarding undertaking.
The accommodation although only 2 bedrooms is larger than one would expect, with a 27’ lounge, a 28’ Kitchen/Breakfast room and 20’ main bedroom (which could be divided in two) if a buyer required 3 bedrooms. The accommodation currently comprises a spacious entrance hall, shower/cloakroom, lounge with fireplace and door out to the garden, kitchen/breakfast room, upstairs are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. A rear lobby leads through to a utility room to a substantial garage (built approximately 12 years ago) with useful storage/attic space over.
The village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe offers local shopping, post office, pubs, doctor’s surgery with pharmacy, newsagent/general store, primary school (Ofsted rated as ‘outstanding’) and churches, whilst The Bay itself is sheltered for bathing, fishing, sailing etc. The cliff top to either side of The Bay is mainly in the care of the National Trust and offers some delightful walks. There are golf courses at nearby Kingsdown and Deal with St George’s at Sandwich (venue of the 2021 British Open). The Cathedral City of Canterbury offers an excellent shopping centre together with leisure interest, theatres and county cricket. Excellent links to the continent via the Port of Dover, the Channel Tunnel and London St Pancras 75 minutes from Martin Mill station (approx. 2 miles).
