An exceptional 1930’s character property, beautifully presented and situated in a stunning location with outstanding views from every principle room over the bay and across The Channel to France.
Granville Road is arguably one of the most sought-after roads in the Bay, tree lined with an interesting mixture of substantial detached properties maximising on this very special location.
Berkeley is a well-built property constructed of brick with painted pebble-dash elevations under a clay tiled roof with double glazed windows. The house benefitted from a major renovation project in the late 1990’s, at which time the ground floor rooms were remodelled to create a large open plan layout (ideal for modern family living and entertaining), with polished marble floors and underfloor heating. The joinery throughout the house was replaced with quality hardwood, including panelled doors, wide architraves, deep skirtings and moulded cornices, and in particular bespoke panelling, book shelving and cupboards to the sitting room.
Whilst the house was already impressive, the current owners have taken it to another level. Improvements include the creation of an inviting entrance lobby with oversized glazed doors both front and back which provide a welcoming sea view, the kitchen has also been remodelled, bathroom fittings upgraded and a glass balcony has been added to the top floor suite. The rear gardens and approach have been landscaped to create a series of terraces with ragstone walls, and the main seaward facing garden has been levelled to create an infinity styled lawn area with established flowering borders, which further enhance the exceptional sea view, picture framed by mature trees.
The village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe offers local shopping facilities with a post office, two pubs/restaurants, tea rooms/bar, doctor’s surgery with pharmacy, newsagent/general store, primary school (Ofsted rated as ‘outstanding’) and churches. 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 and the South Foreland Lighthouse. There is also the Pines Gardens with its museum and tearooms. Popular golf courses at nearby Kingsdown and Deal with St George’s at Sandwich (venue of the 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).
