A chance to buy a mid-terrace cottage forming part of the newly converted old village school, sympathetically adapted to make 2 cottages and retaining the village library at one end.
The Old School dates-back to 1847 – a new village school was built on another site in the village in the 1970’s. It was subsequently acquired by the St Margaret’s Bay Trust and has had a variety of uses over the years including a playschool and village library. It was then purchased from the The Bay Trust by the vendor in 2015.
The old building has been comprehensively refurbished whilst respecting the historical features such as the old flint walls and large windows which provide plenty of light. The accommodation comprises; entrance hall, small study, kitchen/breakfast room, and ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room. Upstairs is a galleried style living room and further bedroom with en-suite shower room. Central heating is gas fired and there is a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery unit system. Outside to the front is a gravel garden area and at the rear an enclosed paved and grassed courtyard style garden, and a designated parking space.
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 2020 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).
