DESCRIPTION

An exceptionally lovely character cottage situated in the sought after seaside village of Kingsdown.  Bought by the vendors in 1995, they have transformed what was a modest 2 up 2 down into a very special home by extending into the sunny south facing garden to maximise on the light and views over the village.

Much thought and effort has gone into preserving the period feel of the cottage with stripped pine floors, original doors and fireplaces with practical upgrades including underfloor heating to much of the ground floor and large roof lantern in the kitchen/breakfast room, providing natural light.

The accommodation comprises: sitting room, lounge, kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke hand painted floor and wall cupboards and a range of appliances, conservatory and a well appointed bathroom with roll top bath and shower.  Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms (one with en-suite WC).  There is also potential to convert the attic into a 3rd bedroom (subject to usual consents).

To the front of the cottage is a small paved garden area, to the rear is a very pretty cottage style garden mainly lawn with a variety of plants and shrubs and small trees, tool shed and decked seating area

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 Walmer & Kingsdown Golf Course. A further three Champion golf courses are a short drive away including Royal St Georges in Sandwich (venue for the British Open).  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 the nearest station at Walmer (1hr 15mins).
