Front, Helena Corniche, Sandgate, CT20

Helena Corniche is a small and exclusive development, situated on the hillside above Sandgate and overlooking the English Channel, approximately 2½ miles from both the ancient Cinque Ports Town of Hythe and the larger town of Folkestone.

The quaint, unspoilt Cinque Ports Town of Hythe, approximately 2½ miles distant, provides a wide range of amenities including 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi), various independent shops and restaurants, together with a selection of sports and leisure facilities, golf courses, swimming pool, etc. The fashionable village of Sandgate with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants and long stretch of shingle beach with sailing club is a short walk away and the coastal path can be followed along the foot of The Leas all the way to Folkestone harbour.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications as there are main line railway stations within easy reach and an access point for the M20 motorway (Junction 12) only 2 miles away, making it possible to reach Central London within about 1½ hours by both road and rail. The High Speed Rail Link offers a journey time to the City of just under an hour and is available from Folkestone West & Central and also Ashford Stations. The Channel Tunnel Terminal, with regular shuttle services to the Continent, is just over two miles away and Ashford International Passenger Terminal with Eurostar services to Paris & Brussels is only 20 minutes by car. The ferry port of Dover is approximately 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate).

Springwood is a particularly well positioned, substantial detached house at the end of this exclusive cul-de-sac. The property enjoys a relatively level approach and a beautiful south facing flat garden. The property has been thoughtfully designed to provide generously proportioned accommodation flooded with light from the numerous south facing windows in most of the principal rooms. The accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule leading to the entrance hall with its dramatic double height ceiling. Beyond this both the sitting room and dining room open onto the south facing garden (the dining room via a pleasant conservatory extension) from where views of the sea can be enjoyed. There is a large kitchen breakfast room which could, subject to all relevant consents being obtained, be opened into the dining room. Beyond the kitchen is a large utility room. A study and cloakroom complete the ground floor. The first floor galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms, the master with en-suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom. Unusually for Helena Corniche the property enjoys a relatively level plot with a generous driveway providing ample parking and access to the large integral double garage. To the rear of the house the delightfully secluded, mature garden enjoys a southerly aspect and sea views.
