DESCRIPTION

 

A deceptively spacious, detached character house set in a lovely secluded walled garden in the middle of the village.

 

The oldest part of the building, at the rear, is constructed of brick and flint and believed to be the original farmhouse. This was extended to the front in the late 1800’s with the current owner adding a further extension in the 1980’s.

 

The accommodation comprises; hall, cloakroom, lounge (with doors on to the garden), siting room, dining room, study/bedroom 5 (with adjacent cloakroom and door on to the high street) kitchen/breakfast room and cellar. Upstairs are four double bedrooms (one with a shower and WC) and family bathroom. 

 

Outside double gates lead to a block paved driveway for 3-4 cars and detached garage. The attractive walled garden forms part of the original farmyard with old brick and flint walls. Mainly lawn with well stocked plant borders, vegetable garden, paved seating area, pond, greenhouse and tool shed.

 

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 Eurostar from Ashford, London St Pancras 75 minutes from Martin Mill station (approx. 2 miles).
