A rare opportunity to acquire a character detached bungalow set in just under ½ acre of gardens adjacent to an area of outstanding natural beauty and enjoying lovely views over the Channel to the coast to France. The property was originally built as a guard house as part of the WW2 coastal defences. In the 1950’s it was extended and remodelled to make a character house with the vendor acquiring it in the late 1980’s. It does now require updating and improving but with its superb location, large garden and sea views it offers huge potential to create a very special home.
The village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe offers local shopping, post office, newsagent/general store, primary school and churches, whilst The Bay itself is sheltered for bathing, rock pooling, fishing, sailing and water sports. The cliff tops either side of The Bay are mainly in the care of the National Trust and offer some delightful walks. There are 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).
