View from terrace, Radnor Cliff, Sandgate, CT20

Radnor Cliff is a sought-after and exclusive residential area, just minutes from the charming and vibrant Sandgate Village centre with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes, restaurants and micro brewery. The long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be accessed directly from the garden or found by meandering down one of the pretty alleyways from Sandgate High Street and the coastal path can be followed along the foot of The Leas all the way to Folkestone Harbour with the recently regenerated "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 mile 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 service to London, with a journey time to St Pancras of less than an hour, is available at Folkestone West Station (1 mile), Folkestone Central (1.5 miles) and Ashford International (16 miles). Eurostar services to Paris and Brussels connecting to the rest of Europe are also available at Ashford. The M20 motorway with fast connections to London and the wider south-east and the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Cheriton (Calais 35 minutes) are both about 3 miles distant.

This exceptional property presents a unique opportunity to acquire a house which has been in the ownership of the same family since the 1990's and upon which intending purchasers can make their own mark tailoring the property to suit their own tastes and requirements. The house occupies a particularly special position on the southern side of Radnor Cliff from where it enjoys direct access to the beach and The Riviera and commands a magnificent, uninterrupted southerly panorama with views of the sea, around the bay to Dungeness and on a clear day, to the coast of France.

Built circa 1957 and part of Earl Radnor's Folkestone Estates, the property is currently arranged to provide a welcoming entrance hall, sitting room of which the entire south wall is occupied by a deep bay window with doors accessing the garden to either side and maximising the views of the sea, a separate dining room also enjoying views of the sea through the sun room, a well fitted kitchen, utility room, work room and shower room complete the ground floor. On the first floor there are three generous bedrooms, two with views of the sea, a family bathroom and a separate w.c. If more space is required there is ample opportunity to extend and also to convert the existing loft space which is cavernous (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained). The property is approached via a shared driveway and has parking for numerous vehicles and access to the attached garage. The garden to the rear is a delight, the perfect vantage point from where to relax and soak up the views of the sea. From here access can be gained directly to the beach via a pathway over which we understand the property to have a right of access.
