From the moment you arrive outside you get a sense that this is somewhere special and, for us, it really is.
This is one of those homes that has a fabulous presence, there's a feel that emanates from it and it warms you with its presence. It has a stylish look, a high-pitched roof that hints at a Scandinavian feel. It's surprising then to discover that this is a home that started life as a bungalow!
A testament to the owner and the builder who worked on it is the fact this is one of the stand out homes in what has always been one of the best roads in the area.
It has been a perfect family home through the years, it grew as space was needed, becoming the impressive residence you now see. It has seen a family grow here and from being home to the kids it has become somewhere for the grandchildren to visit. The accommodation can work beautifully to suit any number of needs. For a larger family, there are five bedrooms in all, three upstairs, with a family bathroom. Downstairs there are two double bedrooms and a wet room with bath and walk in shower.
It is a home that is eminently flexible, great for the family, it also works wonderfully for those with a business to run from home and anyone with a grown-up family prone to returning.
The living and dining room stretches out towards the rear garden and french doors draw the beautifully planted space into your lap. A spacious kitchen provides space to sit and chat with lots of storage and workspace.
The garden is a delight. Full of gorgeously scented roses, established shrubs and beautiful colour. Tucked away at the rear are the greenhouses and space for compost bins. There's plenty of space for cars and the garage takes a car and provides workshop space too.
Living in a location like this, visitors are likely to be regular features.
When most people think of Greatstone they think of sandy beaches and summer holidays. The 'bay' provides a beautiful stretch of beach upon which to watch the sun rise. Grassy dunes and shallow waters are fabulous for kids and adults alike to enjoy. Lesser known is the lovely countryside that stretches inland that can be enjoyed along designated walks. Romney Marsh is an incredible environment, brimming with delightful flora and interesting fauna as the seasons cycle. One minute you can be on the water’s edge catching the glint of mackerel jumping in the summer sun and moments later you can be watching cinnabar moths frolic amongst the grasses. St Nicholas Church stands proud above the New Romney skyline in one direction and All Saints church in Lydd, the Cathedral on The Marsh, in another.
Rye, Hastings, Camber, New Romney, Hythe, Folkestone and Ashford. A superb selection of destinations for work, shopping and days out. You have an incredible choice.
There are endless opportunities for fun, golf courses including a Links course at Littlestone, sea and fresh water fishing, an active community with a wide variety of clubs and interests plus miles of country lanes and hamlets to explore. We mustn't forget the iconic Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway and will you find all twenty-six churches that were built on Romney Marsh, visit Martello Towers and walk beside the Napoleonic Military Canal?
History abounds throughout the Marsh, from Roman remains, smugglers haunts to 'Listening Ears' and Mulberry Harbour.
