Front, Sandgate Hill, Sandgate, CT20

DESCRIPTION
'Sea Breeze' has been the recent subject of an extensive programme of refurbishment and remodelling. The result is a triumph with a stunning interior where attention has been applied to every detail, great efforts have been made to retain, enhance and reinstate period features and a muted colour theme throughout completes this sympathetic restoration.

The accommodation, which is of particularly comfortable proportions, totals in the region of 1652 sq ft plus the 309 sq ft outbuilding, and comprises a welcoming entrance hall, dual aspect sitting room with cosy wood burning stove and doors to the garden, a separate dining room, beautifully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with larder and a cloakroom. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, the principal room with en-suite shower room and sleek modern family bathroom.

Particular attention has been paid to the gardens which surround the house to three sides. There is a generous gated driveway providing off street parking for a number of vehicles and access to the recently constructed, oak framed outbuilding which comprises an open car port and adjoining garage/workshop (which is supplied with power and could be easily adapted to provide a home office). The garden to the rear has been attractively landscaped to provide a delightfully secluded environment in which to relax and dine alfresco.

For room sizes please refer to floor plan.

SITUATION
Sandgate Hill is a popular position forming part of the A259 that runs along the coast between Folkestone, Sandgate and Hythe. The property sits above the road and is a pleasant stroll from the charming and sought-after village centre with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants. The long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be found by meandering down one of the pretty alleyways from the 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 Artists Quarter and busy High Street.

The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe with its wider range of amenities, including a Waitrose, is approximately 3 miles away to the west. 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 offering spa treatments, pool and gym.

The High Speed Rail Link service to London, with a journey time to St Pancras of less than an hour, is available at Folkestone West Station (1 mile) and Ashford International (16 miles) and Eurostar services to Paris and Brussels are also available at the latter. The M20 motorway network and the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Cheriton (Calais 35 minutes) are both about 3 miles distant.
