View to sea, The Riviera, Sandgate, CT20

Zarena Court is a small and exclusive development of just eight, rarely available town houses occupying an idyllic position adjacent to and with direct access to the promenade and beach in the desirable village of Sandgate.

The property provides beautifully appointed accommodation of particularly comfortable proportions which is arranged over three floors with the principal rooms arranged to maximise the magnificent southerly aspect with panoramic views of the sea being enjoyed from each of these rooms, direct access to the beach from the ground floor and sea facing balconies from the sitting room and master bedroom on the first and second floors. The house forms the end of the terrace hence occupying a wider plot than its neighbours, this has enabled an additional useful space to be created at the side of the house providing invaluable storage, a separate entrance area and an enhanced dining room (which could provide a fourth bedroom, alternatively the house could easily be reconfigured to its original four bedroom design). There is a paved sea facing garden to the rear providing direct access to the beach and a double garage and parking to the front.

For room sizes please refer to floor plan.

The Riviera is considered to be amongst Sandgate's most exclusive locations being accessed via the foot of Radnor Cliff and backing directly onto the beach. Radnor Cliff is accessed via the main A259 that runs along the coast between Sandgate and Hythe. The property is within moments of 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 stepping out of the rear garden and wandering along the promenade or by meandering down one of the pretty alleyways from the high street and, the coastal path, also accessible from the garden, can be followed along the foot of The Leas all the way to Folkestone harbour with the recently revitalised "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 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.
