For Sale - Sandgate Hill, Sandgate, CT20 - £235,000

Front, Sandgate Hill, Sandgate, CT20

This enchanting Grade II Listed cottage has been a much loved home for the current owner for over twenty years. Whilst it has clearly benefitted from some routine maintenance it is fair to say that it now requires general updating and improvement both internally and externally but has the potential to create an exceptional home which exudes charm and character throughout. It is considered well worthy of any expenditure required and has been priced accordingly.

The accommodation, which is of particularly comfortable proportions, comprises an entrance vestibule which leads to the sitting room to the front and the dining room to the rear which are partially open plan to one another. Beyond the dining room is the surprisingly generous kitchen, utility area and cloakroom. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, each with the advantage of an en-suite shower room.

The property is approached via a covered walkway which also provides access to the neighbouring property's garden. To the rear of the house is a delightfully secluded, part walled, courtyard garden.

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.
