Sandgate High Street, Sandgate, CT20 - £475,000

Sandgate High Street forms the heart of this charming and sought-after village by the sea and comprises an eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, galleries, public houses, cafes and restaurants. The long stretches of shingle beach and rowing club can be found by stepping out of the front door and meandering down the pretty alleyway to Granville Parade from where 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 around 53 minutes, 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.

This exceptional Grade II Listed building has been the subject of a considerable programme of improvement for the current owners who have implemented a high end finish throughout with some intuitive touches of their own. These work beautifully alongside the various original features and clever use of contemporary styling which varies from edgy and daring to sumptuous luxury in the master bedroom.

The space has been utilised to suit the current owners requirements in an extravagant way with entrance hall and cleverly concealed cloakroom, generous open plan living spaces beyond which is the retail space which has been cleverly created with the use of a bespoke wall of oak framed coloured glass and has a significant shop front to the High Street. The living space leads to a dining room flooded with light by a large glazed roof lantern and beyond this is a superb kitchen. From the kitchen there is an office with adjoining store which were originally the garage to the property. The first floor comprises the master bedroom suite with bedroom, boudoir, two part dressing room and en-suite bathroom (this space could, with relative ease, be reconfigured to provide additional bedrooms if required). Accessed from the master bedroom is a stunning roof terrace. Enclosed by glazed balustrade, facing south and with views of the sea, the terrace provides a very special setting in which to relax or party and dine alfresco. The former Garage is accessed from a driveway from Granville Parade over which the owners have a right of access and where they have always parked their vehicles.
