When Paul & Eileen Gar­rett first set eyes on Chan­nel View, at Sandgate, a decade ago, they threw their house hunt­ing tick list away.

This sunny late Vic­to­rian villa has stunning panoramic views across the Chan­nel with a full length bal­cony across the en­tire front. So a dra­matic out­look was al­ways guar­an­teed.

Paul says: “The lo­ca­tion is what makes the house spe­cial. We com­piled a list of ideal re­quire­ments when we were look­ing to move from southeast Lon­don. When we first saw Chan­nel View we put the list away.

“Sel­dom can a house have been more aptly named. On a clear night we can see the car head­lights on the French clifftop roads.

“In the sun­shine the deck is won­der­ful. In the good weather that’s where we live.”

Now on the mar­ket again, the house, in a pri­vate road, has been com­pletely re­fur­bished and re­tains stripped wooden doors, fire­places and wood pan­elled walls.

It has three/four bed­rooms, the mas­ter with fire­place, dress­ing area and en suite with a dou­ble ended cen­tral bath and sep­a­rate Ad­dress: Chan­nel View, Sun­ny­side Road, Sandgate, Folke­stone Price: £650,000 Agent: Smith-Wool­ley & Perry shower area. The fam­ily bath­room has two 1920s style basins.

The sit­ting room has full length win­dows onto the bal­cony, a work­ing fire­place, high ceil­ings and sea views.

The airy dining room has painted wood pan­elled walls, fire­place, win­dows out to the bal­cony and sea views.

The beau­ti­ful kitchen/ break­fast/fam­ily room has two sets of dou­ble doors lead­ing out to the bal­cony. It has free stand­ing fur­ni­ture in­clud­ing a cen­tral is­land unit, a but­lers sink and a five-ring range cooker. A fire­place has a flame ef­fect gas fire.
