Full property description

A wonderful end of terrace Victorian house which sits perfectly on the corner of this popular road in Dover and has two outstanding grammar schools, both within walking distance. This quirky Victorian property has been beautifully enhanced, with the addition of a small conservatory, a new kitchen and bathroom. There are also numerous period features including, stripped wooden floors, original cornicing and Victorian fireplaces.

A smart front door opens into an entrance porch, directly ahead another door opens into a splendid entrance hall with a striking tiled floor and lovely high ceilings. An opening to the right brings one to a lovely sitting room, with a hexagon style bay window and a large feature fireplace. This room feels particularly grand with its beautiful cornicing, picture rails and oak flooring.

Whilst to the left another glazed door opens to the spacious dining room with its large bay window. An opening from the rear of the dining room leads to the good sized, dual aspect kitchen, with a convenient breakfast room sat adjacent to it.

To the rear of the breakfast room, there is a delightful addition in the form of a small conservatory that is used as a utility room and a great place to house coats and wellies, with convenient access to the garden.

The stairs rise to the first floor and an impressive open landing, which leads to a well-appointed family bathroom and four beautifully decorated bedrooms, each one with its own stunning original fireplace. The stripped floors, picture rails and cornicing continues upstairs and because of the corner position, there are lots of windows allowing light to flood through this space.

The main dual aspect bedroom has a grand bay and a magnificent, tiled fireplace. One of the bedrooms is used as a delightful study as it leads off to the single room at the rear.


There is a beautiful walled garden with established shrubs and many fruit trees which borders the 40ft lawn area. Wonderfully positioned and slightly elevated, the garden benefits from all day sunshine. There is a useful shed and two decking areas, this has been recently added and is a lovely place for alfresco dining. A small front garden sits to the right of the property and has some attractive shrubs and flowers.


The historic town of Dover is famous for its White Cliffs and its English Heritage site Dover Castle which draws in visitors from around the world. However, Dover is currently going through an extensive period of regeneration, with excellent shopping facilities at the recently completed St James Place Shopping Centre complementing the existing shops and businesses within Dovers thriving town centre. Furthermore, town has recently completed a 26M leisure centre, with the first county-standard, eight-lane competition swimming pool in Kent, whilst the Dover Western Docks Revival plans to completely transform the Dover waterfront with a new marina pier and curve and a host of new shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

In addition to its new leisure centre and swimming pool, Dover has some wonderful recreational parks and gardens, including Kearsney Abbey & Russell Gardens and the nearby Connaught Park, which is within easy walking distance of Egerton House. Also within easy walking distance are three primary schools, St Edmond's Catholic School, Dover Grammar School for Girls and the Duke of Yorks Royal Military School, whilst Dover Grammar School for Boys and Astor College (a specialist college for the Arts) can be reached by car or public transport.

The nearby town of Folkestone is just five miles away and this offers a much wider array of shopping, recreational and educational amenities, whilst Folkestone West offers a high speed rail service which reaches London St Pancras in approximately 52 minutes. The Channel Tunnel terminal at Cheriton and the M20 motorway are also within a short driving distance from here. The Channel Tunnel terminal offers a fast service across the channel in around half an hour, whilst the M20 motorway provides easy road access to both London and the port of Dover.

The nearby thriving market town of Ashford also provides excellent shopping and recreational facilities, including the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet which is undergoing massive expansion to double the size of this major retail attraction. The Eureka Park development offers a selection of restaurants, including Nandos, Frankie & Bennys, Beefeater and Pizza Hut and also includes Bannatyne Health Club & Spa, Cineworld and Travelodge. Ashford also offers a fine selection of educational amenities, including both state and private schools.
