Situated in Folkestone's prestigious West End in one of it's most coveted locations, where it backs directly onto The Leas promenade, commands some superb views of the sea and to the coast of France on a clear day, this substantial detached family house occupies a generous plot of approximately one third of an acre. It also offers beautifully presented, versatile accommodation of particularly comfortable proportions, totalling in the region of 3627 square feet and with all of the principal rooms facing south. This includes an entrance vestibule opening to a generous entrance hall which leads to the impressive 24ft sitting room with adjoining sun room which unites the space with the garden, a generous dining room, study and beautifully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with walk-in pantry and adjoining utility room. There is also a cloakroom. On the first floor the wide landing leads to a superb principal bedroom suite comprising the main bedroom, en-suite shower room and dressing room which is currently equipped as a kitchenette as this area has been used to house a dependant relative. There are three further double bedrooms, each of a good size and one with an en-suite. There is also a family bathroom.

The house has a generous frontage with ample parking on the driveway which also accesses the double garage beyond which is a brick built workshop. The real joy is at the rear of the house where the expansive gardens enjoy a southerly aspect, beautiful terraces for alfresco entertaining extending to a wide expanse of lawn which is backed by beautifully planted borders which boast a variety of mature shrubs providing year round interest and affording a great deal of privacy. The lawn encompasses the house on the east side too and the northern boundary there is a neatly tended vegetable garden.
