A two bedroom terraced former Coastguard cottage situated in a lovely location just a stones throw from the beach in the sought after seaside village of Kingsdown.

Believed to have been built in the 1860s, the cottages once housed the Coastguard officers responsible for patrolling the coastline of what is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.   Once decommissioned they were sold off and have always been much sought by those seeking the ideal seaside retreat.   Elevated from the beach, the cottages are accessed by a private road leading off Undercliff Road. Number 2 benefits from having its own parking space driveway for 2 cars (opposite the front garden) leading to a single detached  garage.

The accommodation comprises a sitting room/diner, kitchen with a range of built in appliances, 2 double bedrooms and bathroom. There are views of the Channel from the front bedroom and bathroom. Pretty gardens front and rear, the front mainly grass with plant/shrub borders, the rear with small area of grass, shrubs and back to back brick built tool and bike sheds.

KINGSDOWN is a former fishing village of charm and character and offers a range of leisure activities.  In the village there is a small selection of shops and amenities including a Newsagent/Post Office, Butcher, three Public Houses, the Church of St Johns and a Primary School (rated outstanding by Ofsted).  Recreational activities include water sports and fishing along with the Kingsdown Golf Course.  The historic coastal town of DEAL has a good variety of shopping and leisure facilities yet still retains much of its character as a former maritime town.  DOVER, with its docks and cross-Channel services, is seven miles away, offering fast access to the Continent and fast Rail Link access to London St Pancras travelling from nearby Walmer (approx.2.5 miles) takes just 1hr 20mins.  There is also a fast train service from Deal.
