A very well-presented second floor apartment in an excellent location within the prestigious purpose-built Granville development. Built on the site of the famous Granville Hotel, mentioned in the former St Margaret’s Bay resident Ian Fleming’s book ‘Moonraker’, The Granville was a favourite haunt of celebrities. The hotel was demolished in 1996 to make way for luxury apartments designed to fully maximise on this most dramatic location looking out over the Bay, in particular the iconic White Cliffs and headland. Set in beautiful private communal gardens of approximately 1 acre, landscaped with 2 large lawned areas, mature plants, shrubs and specimen trees, seating areas with superb views over the Bay and The Channel to the coast of France.
Apartment 13B enjoys arguably one of the best locations within the Granville development. It occupies the 2nd floor corner of the main building. For those familiar with the layout of the old hotel, the ‘Panoramic Bar’ would have been directly below what is now apartment 13B. This gives it a double aspect with a superb view of the iconic headland rising out of the bay, panoramic view over The Channel and a southwest facing balcony. It is also unusual in that the lounge/dining room, kitchen and main bedroom all have an excellent sea view.
The village of St Margaret’s has 2 pubs, café/bar, 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 delightful walks. There are golf courses at nearby Kingsdown and Deal with St George’s at Sandwich (venue of the British Open). The award-winning coastal town of DEAL has a good variety of shopping and leisure facilities including a Summer Festival of Music and the Arts and still retains much of its character as a former maritime town. 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 at Folkestone and London St Pancras 75 minutes from Martin Mill station (approx. 2 miles).
