An impressive beautifully presented detached house, extended, updated and improved to make a lovely family home set in attractive gardens in the sought after seaside village of Kingsdown.

Believed to be dated from the 1920s, Highlands has been lovingly transformed into a modern and practical family home. Arranged over 3 floors, you enter the house through a wide veranda style porch into an impressive galleried hallway. There are 3 double bedrooms, a family bathroom and cloakroom at this level.

Stairs lead up to the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room.

On the lower ground floor is the lounge with a contemporary fireplace and double doors out to the garden. The lounge opens into a dining area with double doors to the garden and an archway through to the modern fully equipped kitchen/breakfast room. Also on this level is a small office and utility room/cloakroom.

To the front of the property is a block paved in and out driveway for 5-6 cars, oak framed car port.  Double gates to further parking for 2-3 cars leading to a detached single garage.

The rear garden is attractively landscaped with a large paved terrace running the width of the property, heated plunge pool, 2 seating areas and a summerhouse, lawn and vegetable 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 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 (approximately 2.5 miles) takes just one hour and 20 minutes.  There is also a fast train service from Deal.
