If you are looking for peace, tranquility and the uninterrupted sound of the sea this superb marine residence has it all, whether you want a permanent home or a weekend and holiday retreat. Number One Zarena Court is the largest and most private in a mews of eight town houses. They are virtually on the beach and designed and built by local builder Michael Jackson in the 1980s to maximise the wonderful sea views, magnificent outdoor living space and totally uninterrupted views across to France. He originally lived in Number One so you know that it was built to the highest standards. However the current owners have modernised and enhanced the property to create a stunning home with everything needed for life in the 21st century. Walking into the property the first thing you notice is spaciousness and light as the inner hall is open plan to the large and attractive formal dining area where you easily seat a dozen people for a dinner party or family celebration. The delightful kitchen/breakfast room has been designed for relaxed living with a large square granite covered central island which comfortably seats eight. The modern units incorporate an integrated fridge –freezer, separate freezer, a Rangemaster cooker, a dishwasher and washing machine. There is a wall of sliding glazed doors and floor to ceiling windows to the sun room that in turn has amazing brick arched doors that open onto the vast terrace with direct access to the seafront. This really enhances inside-outside living. It also means you can sit in the kitchen or the sun room and enjoy fabulous views straight out to sea. This floor also includes a modern shower room with fully tiled curved built in bench, a superb facility on the ground floor at all times and particularly useful if you have been for a swim. A long room off the entrance hall provides an ideal storage facility which opens onto the terrace via a glazed door. Fishing rods and kayaks could be stored here. On the first floor the impressive sitting room includes a fascinating oriel window with reflective mirrors to enhance the view in all directions but the ‘piece de resistance’ are the patio doors and full height windows that open up onto a good sized balcony. Here you can really appreciate the changeable sea while you drink your morning coffee or revel in the twinkling lights of Calais and the stars and moon shimmering on the water as you imbibe an evening night cap - there is no light pollution. There is also a double bedroom with a walk in wardrobe and a contemporary en suite shower room. On the top floor you will find a very large double bedroom with a wall of sliding mirrored wardrobes. This room could easily go back to being two rooms if required. The lovely master bedroom has mirrored and glass wardrobes and a modern en suite contemporary bathroom with a corner bath. This also has a balcony overlooking the sea and enables you to enjoy a panoramic vista round to Folkestone to the east and across the whole of Hythe Bay to the west. The vast terrace is like an outdoor room and is an ideal entertainment space. It leads to a communal area from where a private gate provides access onto the beach. At the front of the property there is a double garage en block and additional private parking for residents. Number 1 has its own private side access from the property and the rear garage door opens directly into the private garden.

“We have had 13 wonderful years here sharing this beautiful home and environment with friends and family from far and wide. The unrivalled outside living space and vistas are the envy of all our visitors and we enjoy watching the fishing vessels dropping their nets and the illuminated cruisers providing a romantic backdrop to the night sky. Our home provides easy living as it is a ‘lock up and go’ property so during the time we have lived here we have been able to travel widely. London is just 52 minutes on the high speed train from nearby Folkestone West and we are only five minutes from the Channel Tunnel for trips to the Continent. However we feel the time has come to downsize and move into something smaller but we shall still be living in the same area as we love it so much.  Sandgate includes an eclectic mix of architecture and everyone enjoys the coastal environment with the village proudly being accoladed the Seaside Award for six years. The high street offers a variety of independent shops, cafes and bars and there are numerous clubs and societies you can join that enhance a vibrant community spirit. The local primary school is rated Outstanding by Ofsted as are the two grammar schools in Folkestone, while excellent private schools are available in Dover, Canterbury and Ashford. Nearby Hythe is a delightful seaside town with its individual shops, bars, restaurants and pavement cafes as well as Waitrose and other supermarkets. There are lovely walks into Folkestone with its exciting seafront development, cycle rides along the Hythe Military Canal as well as golf at the excellent Hotel Imperial with its restaurant and leisure centre while the Sene Valley golf course, originally designed by Henry Cotton, can offer more challenging golf".
