View, Radnor Cliff, Sandgate, CT20

NO ONWARD CHAIN. A unique opportunity to acquire a charming detached period property with later additions in an exclusive location on Sandgate's highly sought after Radnor Cliff. Positioned on the seaward side of Radnor Cliff, Sea Spray Cottage occupies a generous plot from where it commands a magnificent southerly vista with spectacular views of the sea and across the English Channel to the coast of France on a clear day. The property presents an exciting opportunity for redevelopment of the site (subject to consents and approvals being obtained). It also benefits from direct access to the sea wall via a right of way over adjacent land at the foot of its garden.

The property itself, which offers comfortable accommodation, has been in the ownership of the same family for some forty years and it is fair to say that it now requires general updating. It is however, considered well worthy of any expenditure required and has the potential to provide a truly one off and exceptional home in a stunning location. Currently the property provides two connecting reception rooms, a kitchen, ground floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe and a large integral garage. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms (one with an en-suite dressing room) and a family bathroom. There is also a large south/sea facing roof terrace. Sea Spray Cottage also has the huge advantage of a generous double width parking bay, an adjoining single garage (accessed via an unobstructed right of way over the adjoining land, also leading to the side gate to the garden) and a large integral garage, quite a rarity in this location. EPC Band E.

Best and Final Offers are invited by sealed bid (form available from the agent’s offices) by 12noon on the 1st September 2021.

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 microbrewery. The long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be accessed by meandering down one of the pretty alleyways from Sandgate High Street or from the coastal path and park, literally at the end of this no though road, which 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.
