Sandgate Hill, Sandgate, CT20 - £395,000

The property is situated in a desirable location at the foot of Sandgate Hill, just one road back from 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 sailing club can be found by meandering down one of the pretty lanes or the 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 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.

Ullyett Cottage forms part of "Old School Mews", a converted 19th Century School House with a pleasing façade of Kentish ragstone with dressed stone mullions set beneath a peg tiled roof. The iconic tower, which forms part of the property, has been restored by the owner and now enjoys lime rendered elevations which enhances the decorative stone work.

The property is entered through the original Gothic arch entrance which opens into a hallway at the foot of the tower leading to the dramatic open plan living spaces with a dining area set beneath a vaulted ceiling, separate kitchen area and with steps leading up to the living room. There is also a useful utility room with plumbing for the washing machine. The first floor galleried landing gives access to the tower and two double bedrooms, each set beneath a vaulted ceiling, the master with en-suite bathroom and the second with a small south facing decked terrace. There is also a bathroom. The tower provides a second floor viewing platform with tall windows to all four sides from where magnificent views of the sea can be enjoyed. To the rear of Old School Mews there is a walled courtyard where Ullyett Cottage benefits from an allocated parking space and a useful storage facility integral to the building. There is a wide expanse of lawn at the front where there is also a large paved terrace, ideal for alfresco entertaining.
