Sandgate Point is situated in a highly sought after position, where the well-regarded village of Sandgate and the favoured west end of Folkestone meet. Set on a high point, the views in all directions are dramatic and ever changing. The sale of this charming home represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of Kent’s finest seaside homes, and which also offers good access to London. The house was used on location in the Charles Bronson and Anthony Perkins film “Someone Behind the Door” in 1971.
The accommodation is principally arranged over two floors, with a large lower ground floor having great potential for a variety of uses, and perhaps as an annexe. The house is approached over a little used lane at the end of The Leas, and is well away from passing traffic. Although it is in the heart of this vibrant community it is discretely and privately set.
Approached through an elegant front door, the ground floor accommodation radiates off a central hallway. The reception rooms have the best views out to sea and along the coast, and a generous study, spacious kitchen, shower room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation. The expected period features that make Arts and Crafts homes so pleasing, including original parquet floors and traditional door furniture and handsome windows, abound.
Again radiating from a central landing, the first floor is arranged with four principal bedrooms (two with en-suite bathrooms), a smaller fifth bedroom and a family bathroom. The views here are equally appealing and the additional height allows one to see even further.
The lower ground floor could be used as a separate annexe, if preferred.
The gardens are a special feature of this house, and are arranged with secluded lawns and discrete seating areas, and they are well positioned to make the most of the views. The gardens are especially private and arranged on various levels as would be expected in a seaside home, making the best of the escarpment. A garage at the front of the property has recently been re-roofed.
