Front, The Esplanade, Sandgate, CT20

The Esplanade is a desirable location running parallel with the beach and is on the approach to Sandgate and Hythe. It is only a short walk along the promenade with the wide stretch of shingle beach alongside to the charming and sought-after village centre, with its eclectic mix of local shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants. The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe, with its wider range of amenities including Waitrose is approximately 2.5 miles to the west and the larger town of Folkestone is about 1.5 miles to the east. There is a variety of sporting facilities available along the coast, including rowing and sailing clubs, a choice of golf courses in the immediate vicinity, together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre.

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 (1.7 miles) 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. (All distances are approximate).

"Regency Cottage" is one of Sandgate's most notable landmark properties and is situated in an enviable beachfront location from where it commands magnificent views of the sea and to France on a clear day.

This Grade II Listed property is set back from and above the road and is approached via a flight of stone steps where an ornate lattice work porch encompasses a grand entrance door with original storm shutters, setting the tone for what lies behind the handsome façade. The accommodation, which retains a wealth of original detail throughout, is beautifully presented in a sympathetic style, enjoys particularly elegant proportions and has been designed with the majority of rooms facing south and consequently almost every room enjoys a stunning sea view. Arranged over four floors the accommodation includes 4-5 reception rooms, a stunning kitchen/breakfast room and 4-5 bedrooms (3 with en-suites). The delightfully secluded garden incorporates a heated swimming pool and a well equipped garden room with sea facing terrace. There is also a garage accessed from Wellington Place.
