2 4 2 1

This impressive modern house not only has excellent sea views but is also a delight to look at from the moment you turn into the wide driveway, leading to the garage.  It is complete with a large expanse of block paving where you can park numerous vehicles and an attractive rockery front garden area, while the arched front door and surrounding brickwork provide a charming welcome. Once inside there are tiled stairs down to the lower ground floor and a door to the light and bright reception hall where you will find double glass doors to the rear garden and wraparound terrace with block paved side pathways back to the front of the house. There is lovely stone floor tiling that flows throughout the ground floor and leads to the well equipped master bedroom with built in cupboards, an impressive en suite wet room and french doors to the terrace, so you can wander out in the morning with your cup of coffee and admire the scenery. This floor also includes a fully tiled family bathroom with a stand alone contemporary bath, two further double bedrooms including one that also has french doors to the terrace as well as the integral garage with tiled flooring.

An attractive modern staircase takes you up to the spectacular living areas, designed to take advantage of the panoramic views. Ahead of you are bi folding doors to a gorgeous covered terrace where you can sit and revel in the stunning views across to France on a clear day, while above you is a high, vaulted ceiling and cross beams. There is oak flooring in the large lounge/diner with a vast and impressive inglenook fireplace incorporating a wood burning stove, while at the other end of the room is a delightful kitchen area with a range cooker and dishwasher together with an integrated fridge and freezer. This floor also includes a trendy shower room and a useful bedroom 4/study that could always be used as an additional bedroom if required.

On the lower ground floor there is a vast games/entertainment room where you could put a full sized billiard or table tennis table. It could continue to be a magnificent games room but would also make an excellent office complex if you wanted to work from home. The easy to maintain and secluded rear garden is mainly laid to lawn.

“We originally bought a small chalet bungalow on the site about 10 years ago, which we subsequently demolished and put this lovely house in its place. We had a wonderful architect who totally understood what we had in mind and how we wanted the house to provide the best opportunity for enjoying the views. We love the quiet and tranquil environment here and, as the road only goes to a farm, there is not too much traffic and the views from the terraces are delightful as can watch the ferries and ships passing by and on a clear night we can see the moon reflected on the sea and the twinkling lights of Calais in the distance. However we are starting a new chapter in our lives and hope that new owners will enjoy everything this family home has to offer.

St Margaret’s has long been a magnet for famous names with Peter Ustinov, Noel Coward and Ian Fleming being among its past illustrious residents and there is still a friendly neighbourhood if you want to be involved in a variety of activities. For regular commuters we are not far from Dover and Folkestone for access to the Continent and Martin Mill and Dover for the mainline station and high speed rail to London, while it is only a short drive to the lovely town of Deal with its seafront, individual shops, bars and restaurants. We can get down to St Margaret’s Bay and there are wonderful walks to the South Foreland Lighthouse – the first in the world to have electric light – or you can stroll along to the Dover Patrol Memorial, further along the clifftop.

The village provides everything we need on a daily basis and includes a post office, village shop, a number of restaurants, an hotel and four pubs including the well known Coastguard at St Margaret's Bay.  If you are permanent residents there are a wide range of societies and clubs including bowls, tennis, cricket and football as well as a history and horticultural society, among many others. Not to mention the St. Margaret’s players for those with a more theatrical bent. For the younger members of the community there are also very active scout, guide and brownie troops as well as two riding stables”.
