Property description

Detailed Description

Situation
Sandgate High Street is the continuation of The Esplanade which follows the coast between Sandgate and Hythe, and backs directly onto the beach. 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 rowing club can be found by stepping out of the communal garden or 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 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 are 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.


Description


This exceptional duplex apartment is approached via a communal hallway serving it and just one other apartment and is arranged over the second and third floors of this prominently situated development which comprises just eight apartments with associated secure parking beneath.

The apartment has been in the ownership of the same family since it was built and whilst generally well maintained, it is fair to say that it would now benefit from a relatively simple programme of updating and improvement, there is also scope (with the relevant permissions) to reconfigure the accommodation. The accommodation is of particularly generous proportions and includes an entrance hall, sitting room/ dining room leading to a large sea facing balcony, kitchen, 4th bedroom and bathroom. The top floor comprises three further bedrooms (two with access to a further sea facing balcony) and a shower room. Accessible via a remote controlled roller door at the side of the building or on foot from the communal hallway is the large communal garage where Apartment 6 benefits from an allocated parking space. To the rear of the building there is a communal garden with direct beach access.

For room sizes please refer to floorplan.
