About 1 acre

Copthorne is a fine seaside home set in an elevated position above the very popular village of Sandgate, and benefits from some superb, far-reaching views over the English Channel. It is presented in excellent order throughout, and the current owner has undertaken a significant programme of updating, especially to the services etc.

The house dates from 1938 and has strong Art Deco influences. Folkestone West Station is a mile away with a High Speed service to London St Pancras (from 53 minutes).

The house enjoys a large private driveway with parking for a number of vehicles. A recessed porch leads into a welcoming hallway giving access to the main reception rooms. These are all set at the front of the house, facing south and enjoying excellent views. Two have fireplaces, and bay windows typical of this era. The large family kitchen is at the rear, and behind there is a good-sized utility room and a large garage with significant storage. There are two cloakrooms.

The first floor houses three generous double bedrooms and two single bedrooms, with the master bedroom enjoying a large en- suite shower room. Four of the bedrooms have superb sea views. There are two more bathrooms, and at the rear a pair of large rooms at present used as a library. These could be adapted as a home office, or possibly self-contained accommodation.

To the second floor there is a sitting room giving access to the flat roof. This has a brick parapet/railings all round and views across the English Channel towards France.

Sandgate has a variety of useful amenities for day-to-day needs, as well as a number of antique and gift shops along with local pubs and several restaurants. Folkestone, with its burgeoning Arts scene, and Hythe provide more comprehensive amenities and services, including excellent schooling.   

The M20 gives excellent road access. Folkestone West offers High Speed commuter services to London St Pancras in under an hour as well as services to Charing Cross. Ashford International (16 miles) and the Channel Tunnel (3 miles) have regular services to the Continent.

The gardens feature lawns, rose beds and flowering borders, with paved terraces and a pond. There is a greenhouse and a chalet-type garden shed. The paved area adjacent to and accessible from the kitchen is ideal for alfresco meals in the summer. The trees on the bank form a raised area of garden owned by the house which gives great privacy.
