A penthouse apartment with extraordinary 360° views

This unique property offers extensive views across Folkestone, the Kent coast and beyond as far as France. The interior is well-presented and features large windows that draw focus to the exceptionally impressive views which can be enjoyed from every room.

The reception hall opens to a double-height hallway with stairs rising to the entrance lobby, which is flanked by glazed sliding doors leading out to the roof terrace. This bright and airy entrance leads through to the spacious dining room with smart built-in shelving and doors leading directly outside. This space flows into the 23ft sitting room which enjoys splendid views of the sea as well as the White Cliffs of Dover. This substantial light-filled space benefits from three sets of sliding doors opening out to the wrap-around terrace.

The kitchen is accessed off the dining room and also enjoys excellent views. Two useful store cupboards located in the internal hallway.

The large dual-aspect master bedroom benefits from built-in wardrobes and a generously-proportioned en-suite bathroom, with a corner bath and double basins. Two further bedrooms are serviced by a well-appointed bathroom; both rooms also feature far-reaching views.


The penthouse apartment is located on the top floor of the purpose-built block. A large paved roof terrace wraps around two sides of the apartment and offers stunning views across both the city and the coast, offering ample space for al fresco relaxation, dining and entertaining.

A secure door from the roof terrace opens into the communal terrace which is also accessible from a separate stairwell. The spacious area is large enough for a variety of outdoor furniture and truly makes the most of the surrounding views.

An underground car parking space is available to lease, if desired.
