A well presented and extremely spacious 1970s built detached house, set within generous and well-established gardens in an exclusive road in Walmer, within easy reach of the beach and with lovely views over Walmer Castle Paddock. The property has been generously extended and now offers extensive and well-appointed accommodation over two floors. However, there is also excellent potential to further extend the property to the rear (subject to the necessary consents).
The property is entered via a large, triple glazed porch, with wood effect flooring. From here, a UPVC double glazed door leads into an entrance hall with a modern shower room/WC and stairs to the first floor. A doorway leads to an impressive L shaped open plan sitting room and dining room, with parquet flooring, a dual aspect and a wood burning stove. A set of double glazed sliding doors open into a lovely double glazed conservatory, with two radiators, a ceramic tiled floor and views over the gardens.
Also, to the rear of the house, there is an open plan kitchen/breakfast room, with a rear lobby which leads to the rear garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a good range of contemporary wall and floor units, set around marble effect work surfaces and space for appliances. A doorway leads from the kitchen/breakfast room to a light and airy, triple aspect family room, with a wood burning stove with a small top-oven and a beautiful marble hearth.
On the first floor, a splendid galleried landing leads to four generously proportioned double bedrooms, a cloakroom and a well appointed family bathroom. This has been fitted with a modern and stylish white suite, including a shower over the bath and is finished with attractive ceramic tiling. The master bedroom is a spacious dual aspect room, with spectacular views over Walmer Castle Paddock to the front of the property.
The rear garden measures approximately 96 ft and is mainly laid to lawn, with beautiful, well stocked beds and borders which provide complete privacy and a full width patio area adjacent to the house. There is a useful wood store and two wooden outbuildings, ideal for hobbies. There is another large block paved patio/seating area at the bottom of the garden, ideal for a chalet/office pod.
The property is situated in the charming village of Walmer, just a few minutes walk from Walmer Castle, Walmer Beach and overlooking Walmer Castle grounds. The village is steeped in history, being a possible location for Julius Caesar's first arrival in Britain.
Walmer has a train station with a high speed rail connection to London and an excellent selection of schools, including two Ofsted Good rated primary schools within half a mile of the house and an Ofsted Good secondary school less than 2 miles from the house. There is also Dover Grammar School for Girls (Ofsted rating Outstanding) approx. 7.1 miles away, Dover Grammar School for Boys (Ofsted rating Good) approx.. 7.5 miles away and Sir Roger Manwoods Grammar School (Ofsted rating Outstanding) approx.. 5.2 miles away in Sandwich.
The nearby town of Deal is approximately a 20 minute walk along the Promenade/Cycle Path and is a popular seaside fishing town which lies eight miles north-east of Dover and eight miles south of Ramsgate. Deal became a 'limb port' of the Cinque Ports in 1278, and grew into the busiest port in England; today it is a seaside resort and its quaint streets and houses are a reminder of its history along with many ancient buildings and monuments. In 1968, Middle Street was the first Conservation Area in Kent. The coast of France is approximately twenty five miles from the town and is visible on clear days. The impressive Tudor castle was commissioned by King Henry VIII and has an unusual rose shaped floor plan.
There is a farmers market on Wednesdays, which sells local produce, as well as a well-established market on Saturdays. The town has a strong independent retail sector along with a number of more widely known shops in the town centre. The popular Astor Theatre in Deal offers musical performances, live theatre, exhibitions, movies, classes and clubs.
