The name says it all – the view is amazing
With an ever-changing backdrop of sea, sky, ships and seabirds, you’re never short of admiring visitors at Channel View
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.
