The Dover Road lies to the south of Deal, connecting Lower and Upper Walmer. In the 19th and 20th centuries a good number of substantial properties were built along this stretch making for an interesting variety of architecture and worthy of its current Conservation status. Upper Walmer is a convenient and accessible location with a number of inns, eateries and essential shops, which include a butcher, pharmacy and bakery. To the east, the natural boundary of the English Channel provides an unspoilt pebble shoreline with two mile cycle route and footpath all the way to the bustling town of Deal. This fashionable coastal destination has won many awards for its charming seafront, coupled with eclectic high street, where you will find several restaurants and cafes, together with a selection of lovely independent shops and galleries. There are numerous local sporting facilities including championship golf courses, sailing clubs and the popular Walmer Tennis and Croquet club. Walmer station provides a regular service along the coast and links to the Javelin high speed service to London St Pancras.
Groton House is a substantial property with a tale of two halves. It is believed that the earlier part of the house at the rear originates from the early part of the 18th century and was possibly a farm building. It is understood that the front elevation was built near the beginning of the 19th century with its Georgian symmetry and formal detail. In the early 20th century, the back structure was raised and both buildings were cleverly joined, marrying the proportions and conveying a bright atmosphere with two charming central courtyards filling the space between. This house offers plenty of interest and intrigue. Not only are the rooms particularly well proportioned but they also enjoy features prevalent of their era including dominant fireplaces, picture rails and sash windows with wooden shutters. At some point, Italianate influences have been introduced, in particular a fine fireplace in the drawing room, window shutters to the front facade and stunning formal gardens. The property provides three superb reception rooms, each with their own character and a farmhouse kitchen with garden access, a wine store, pantry and splendid utility. The first floor provides five spacious bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms. All the rooms are bright and spacious and there are a number of built in cupboards for plentiful storage. The master bedroom in particular is delightful with a lovely view over the walled garden.

A single width driveway provides off street parking for one vehicle and a single garage provides for a second. The property has an attractive front garden in a courtyard style with ornate pedestrian gates. The rear garden to No. 330 is an absolute delight. Surrounded by period brick walls are manicured lawns, immaculate flowering borders, a stepped Italianate garden with brick columns, a walled kitchen garden and a beautiful summer house. In addition and totally surprising is an attached barn which would make an excellent workshop and hobby room.
