5 Bedroom House For Sale in Beachborough, Newington, Folkestone

“We have lived here for four years and have thoroughly enjoyed this unique property, its history and the setting. However our work is taking us away from the country so it time to pass our home to new custodians. We particularly love the views and the peace and quiet and the walks around the nearby fields and woodland. At the same time as we often had to work in London and on the Continent, being so close to the Channel Tunnel, fast train to London and the motorway has been ideal.

It overlooks Sugar Loaf Hill on one side and open countryside as far as the eye can see on the other and will delight anyone looking for an unusual rural idyll.  At the same time it only a minute to the Channel Tunnel for the Continent and not much further to the M20 motorway and Folkestone West station for the high speed train to London.While outside the property is pretty spectacular it is equally delightful inside with its beamed ceilings and a plethora of arched windows providing plenty of light. You can really begin to appreciate this when you walk through the impressive front door into the main hall with its attractive staircase. On one side it lea... Read more
