Foreland Cottage is a distinctive seaside property which has been the subject of thoughtful and stylish modernisation and enhancement. Set in a popular road the house has wonderful uninterrupted sea views to the rear.
Steps lead down to the house and the entrance hall opens directly into the extensive, bright and sunny reception room. The room is divided into two distinct living spaces, with the sitting room having wonderful picture windows enabling the view to be enjoyed to its full. A semi-circular fireplace is a focal point of the room.
A wide open arch leads to the dining area. The kitchen adjoins and has been fitted with a range of contemporary units with copper fronts and a mixture of marble and wooden work surfaces. The south facing aspect allows plenty of light and direct access to the wide terrace.
Elevated views to the coastline can be enjoyed on the first floor, where there are four bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from a modern en suite bathroom, along with generous wardrobe storage; there are French doors to a Juliet balcony. A second room has the advantage of views to two aspects and access to a smart en suite shower room.
The property is approached via a block-paved driveway which provides parking and leads to the carport, whilst there is a pedestrian gate and steps down through a terraced planted border to reach the entrance doorway.
The rear garden has been beautifully landscaped and features a series of terraces with timber and rendered retaining walls. There are attractively planted beds with sympathetic planting, neatly clipped evergreen hedges, and levels that are laid to lawn with the garden featuring a formal pond set within a gravelled garden area. A row of six birch trees creates a feature of interest and there are further specimen trees interspersed within the grassed areas.
A terrace adjoins the rear of the house offering opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation whilst taking in the stunning views and a timber pergola over a paved terrace at the far margin offers an additional zone for seating
In an elevated position in sought-after St Margarets Bay, the property enjoys stunning sea views and the natural beauty of the National Trust clifftop landscape with a network of footpaths to explore. The sheltered shingle beach has a popular cafe and an inn, The Coastguard, with the village centre offering an array of local amenities.
For commuters there are services from Martin Mill and Dover Priory, whilst road users are within easy reach of the A2. Canterbury offers a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational, cultural and educational amenities. Historic Dover is renowned for the White Cliffs and its English Heritage site, Dover Castle, and is the subject of an extensive regeneration programme. A prestigious leisure centre opened in 2019, and the Western Docks Revival plans will transform the Dover waterfront.
