A rare chance to acquire a substantial detached house built in the 1920’s situated on one of the largest remaining plots in the Bay (approx. 1 acre) enjoying superb uninterrupted views over the Bay and Channel.
The house has had some recent modernisation but would benefit from further updating and improvement which given its large garden setting and superb location would be a well worthwhile undertaking.
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, 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 2003 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 (appox. 2 miles).
