This exquisite detached house in a prime seafront location is what coastal dreams are made of – sea views, modern luxuries, and plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining. Located on the coastal path, you can walk out in either direction or cross the track onto the shingle beach. It’s less than 0.5 miles to the centre of Kingsdown village, where there are a handful of shops and pubs, and a beach that’s popular for rock pooling. In the other direction, it’s a 2.5-mile walk to the pretty seaside town of Deal with a historic castle and pier, and a fantastic food scene – the coastal path takes you past Walmer Castle and Gardens, which offers a brilliant day out. The port town of Dover with its iconic white cliffs and historic castle is 7 miles south, and the entire region is bursting with walking trails and nature reserves.

This is a spacious five-bedroom property, equipped to an exceptionally high standard and decorated with a subtle nautical theme throughout. Wide steps lead up to the front door and into a large entrance hall. To the left is a light and airy lounge with two oversize sofas, a TV, and patio doors leading to the front decking. There’s a separate snug area at the back of the room with a selection of armchairs and footstools, and doors leading to a rear elevated terrace. Across the hallway is a kitchen/diner with a large dining table for 12 overlooking the front of the property, and a fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar and small table and chairs, plus a door leading to a rear balcony. There’s also a ground floor cloakroom. Downstairs, the lower ground floor has a cinema room with a 75” TV with surround sound and extra large beanbags to relax into. Next door is a wet room with WC, and along the corridor is a utility room, a coat cupboard, and two garages, one used for storage and the other converted to a games room with an all-weather table tennis table. A wooden staircase with glass rail leads to the first floor, which houses four bedrooms. The master has a king-size bed, large dressing area with built-in cupboards, a TV, an en-suite shower room and a door leading to a balcony with gorgeous panoramic views. There are two more fabulous king-size rooms with their own balcony access, and a king-size with zip-and-link beds which can be made up as a twin on request. Two of the rooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom. On this floor, you’ll also find a stylish wet room with walk-in shower and free-standing bath. Another wooden staircase with glass rail leads to the second floor, encompassing a spacious king-size bedroom. Triple-aspect windows offer far-reaching views over the sea, and two of the windows tilt open to form Juliet balconies. A dressing table, TV and pin cushion chairs add character to this wonderful space. An inflatable bed can be provided to make a fun sleeping option for a child.

The front decking and first-floor balcony with table and chairs offer superb sea views. Out the back is a coastal-style garden with shingle broken up by planted tubs. There’s a sunken seating area, relaxing outdoor seating, a BBQ, a short court that’s suitable for tennis, volleyball or badminton, and a hot tub is available for an additional fee.

We booked the house for a family weekend to celebrate a birthday - 4 generations ranging from 6 months to 90 years old! The house was very comfortable and really well equipped - something for everyone and plenty of room to spend time together. The location was wonderful too - lovely to look out across the sea and great for a brisk walk along the coRead moreast path to Walmer. Communication with the owner was really good too - very helpful and easy to contact if we needed anything. All in all, the perfect property for our family celebrations! Hide

A cornucopia of technological delights from the sound system to the blinds. A very modern and well resourced house located on the beach and within five minutes walk of an excellent pub.

A beautiful house in a beautiful location with a very helpful owner. Difficult to score value for money as it was very expensive, but an extremely desirable residence with wonderful new amenities since our last visit.

We had a wonderful week with family and friends at this fantastic house, which is superbly situated in a quiet, private road directly opposite the beach. The house is extremely comfortable and well-appointed, with plenty of features to keep both adults and children happy. We all loved the hot tub (especially after a dip in the sea!), the games roomRead more, the huge dining table and the overall space. Waking up to the stunning sea views was pretty special! The children loved the newly installed multi-purpose games area outside, and we were never short of something to do. Easy walking and cycling literally on the doorstep were an added bonus for our group. Communication with the owner was excellent throughout, and the phone call prior to arrival extremely helpful. We've already booked to return later in the year! Hide
