The Garden House is a unique detached family house occupying a generous plot in an unusually secluded location within a short walk of Fisherman's Beach. Designed and built for the current owner, the property offers spacious and versatile accommodation arranged over three floors and totalling in excess of 3000 square feet. This includes a welcoming entrance hall, a bright sitting room with impressive fireplace and part vaulted ceiling, family room, dining room, generously sized kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, another with an adjoining sitting room, study/5th bedroom and a family bathroom. The fourth bedroom on the top floor is particularly generous in size, perfect for a teenager.

There is plenty of space outside too with two driveways providing off road parking (with plenty of scope to create even more parking) and access to both the integral garage/workshop and to the second detached garage. To the side and rear of the house is a sunny south facing garden, perfect for alfresco entertaining.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.

Wakefield Way is a popular position, accessed via Cinque Ports Avenue from St Leonards Road, being very close to the prestigious Fisherman's Beach development and moments from the unspoilt seafront of this ancient Cinque Ports Town, with its long stretches of shingle beaches. The house is also on a level approach to the Royal Military Canal and to the nearby bustling High Street which enjoys a variety of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants. In addition there are 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsbury and Aldi). There is also a selection of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity including tennis, bowls, cricket, squash and sailing clubs as well as other water sports facilities. The town is also well catered for with well regarded primary and secondary schools together with boys and girls grammars in Folkestone. The larger town of Folkestone is less than 5 miles and the Cathedral City of Canterbury is approximately 17 miles distant.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a mainline railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 3 miles) and access to the M20 (Junction 11 - 4 miles). The High Speed Link rail service to Stratford and St Pancras is available from Folkestone West (4.2 miles) and Ashford International (10 miles), with journey times of 53 and 37 minutes respectively. Eurostar trains to Paris and Brussels also depart from the latter. The Channel Tunnel Terminal is around 4 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 13 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)
