A spacious and impressive character semi-detached house situated in a quiet location within easy walking distance of the village centre and primary school.
One of a pair of houses built in the 1930’s ‘Portal Cottage’ has been owned by the vendors for over 20 years, during which time they have sympathetically improved the property including a substantial 2 storey extension designed and built to blend with the original style. Other improvements include a remodelled and extended kitchen, double garage and useful detached entertainment/garden room. The gardens to the side and rear includes plenty of off road parking, lawned area with shrub borders, fishpond, workshop and large sun terrace overlooking a playing field.
The village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe offers local shopping, post office, 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 (the venue of the 2020 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 Eurostar from Ashford and London (St Pancras), 75 minutes from Martin Mill station (approx. 2 miles).
