A well-presented 1st floor apartment being one of 30 built on the site of the famous Granville Hotel. Mentioned in Ian Fleming’s book ‘Moonraker’, (Ian Fleming was a former St Margaret’s Bay resident) The Granville was a favourite haunt of celebrities, including Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence. 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 apartment was originally designed as having two bedrooms. The original owner instructed the developers to omit the dividing wall between the lounge/diner and second bedroom to create a larger lounge/diner. It would be relatively simple to reinstate this wall should a new owner require a second bedroom.
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 tops 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 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).
