DESCRIPTION

A very rare chance to acquire a peaceful weekend retreat,  one of the former Coastguard Cottages situated just above the beach (approximately 100metres) in the popular old seaside village of Kingsdown. 

Built originally in 1863 to house the local Coastguards, the cottage offers a lovely balance of easy access to the beach and village yet set on a residents only, no through lane, giving privacy and quiet.  Ideally located for excellent walking, sea fishing and kayaking. Constructed of brick under a slate roof with replacement small pane period style uPVC windows and doors. 

The accommodation comprises:  shared entrance porch, sitting room and kitchen. Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms and the bathroom; (if required one of the bedrooms is large enough to divide into two). Outside, opposite the Cottage is an additional area of garden with a driving/parking space for four cars leading to a garage. The front garden is well cared for, mainly lawn with plant and shrub borders. The rear garden is gravelled with plant/shrub borders, with a brick-built tool shed.

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.
