Front, Lower Corniche, Sandgate, CT21

Lower 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).

Approached via a block paved private road, this substantial detached house is set at the end of a cul-de-sac from where it commands superb views of the sea and around the bay to Dungeness in the distance. The property offers an impressive level of accommodation, arranged over three floors, totalling in excess of 3000 square feet and with many of the principal rooms facing south and enjoying views of the sea.

The accommodation is versatile and has been designed so that the ground floor, whilst working well with the main parts of the house, can be used as a separate annexe facility to house a dependant relative or maybe teenage children. There are 3-4 reception rooms, the sitting room leading to a sea facing balcony and the dining room to a stunning conservatory, a smartly fitted kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, study, 5-6 bedrooms (3 with en-suites), bathroom and 2 cloakrooms. There is a substantial detached double garage, ample parking and delightfully secluded gardens to the side and rear.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
