View, Castle Road, Sandgate, CT20

Castle Road is a sought after location accessed from the main A259 that runs along the coast between Sandgate and Hythe, and backing directly onto the beach. The property is within moments of the charming and sought-after village centre with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants. The long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be found by stepping out of the rear garden or by meandering down one of the pretty alleyways from the high street and the coastal path can be followed along the foot of The Leas all the way to Folkestone harbour with the recently revitalised "Harbour Arm" with champagne bar, restaurants, cafes and live music.

The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe with its wider range of amenities, including a Waitrose, is approximately 3 miles away to the west and the larger town of Folkestone is about a miles to the east. There is a variety of sporting facilities available along the coast, including rowing and sailing clubs, cricket club and a choice of golf courses in the immediate vicinity together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre.

The High Speed Rail Link service to London, with a journey time to St Pancras of less than an hour, is available at Folkestone West Station (1 mile) and Ashford International (16 miles) and Eurostar services to Paris and Brussels are also available at the latter. The M20 motorway network and the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Cheriton (Calais 35 minutes) are both about 3 miles distant.

This enchanting Grade II Listed period house has been considerably improved by the current owners who are responsible for a contemporary addition to the rear which blends seamlessly with the original structure, provides a generous kitchen/breakfast room designed to compliment modern lifestyles, creates a flow internally and unites the house with the south facing garden. The focus of the accommodation is to the rear and so all of the principal rooms are flooded with southerly light and enjoy far reaching views of the sea.

The property enjoys a wealth of original details throughout the spacious and versatile, free flowing accommodation which includes a drawing room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom, 5 bedrooms (master with en-suite bathroom and dressing room), bath and shower rooms, there is also a second floor sitting room. The south facing garden backs onto and enjoys direct access to the long stretch of shingle beach and provides the ideal environment for alfresco entertaining. Integral garage and parking.
