A well-presented first floor apartment in an excellent location within the prestigious purpose built Granville development with no forward chain. Built on the site of the famous Granville Hotel, mentioned in the former St Margaret’s Bay resident Ian Fleming’s book ‘Moonraker’, The Granville was a favourite haunt of celebrities, but in 1996 the hotel was demolished to make way for luxury apartments designed to fully maximise on this most dramatic location looking out over the Bay and in particular the iconic White Cliffs and headland. Beautiful private communal gardens of approximately 1 acre, landscaped with 2 large lawned areas, mature plants, shrubs and specimen trees, seating areas with superb views over the Bay and The Channel to the coast of France.
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 2010 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).
