£425,000 Freehold

This outstanding example of a Mid Century Modern house can be found a few metres from the beach in Sandgate, Kent.

The 4 / 5 bedroom house is in largely original condition and permission has recently been granted to add another storey to maximise the sea views.

Entry to the house is via an architecturally dramatic carport. This leads to an entrance hall which, like much of the interior, is timber clad. There is a bedroom on the ground floor as well as a small shower room, utility room and workshop.

A beautifully detailed period staircase leads you to the first floor and a remarkable open plan kitchen / living / dining room. The dining area was formerly a balcony. Also on this floor are four bedrooms and a bathroom - all of which retain excellent 1960s features.

There is a steep garden at the rear of the house, which incorporates a paved terrace with wonderful sea views.

The house was completed in 1962 and designed by John Floydd, an architect who is still practicing today. It was widely admired at the time of its construction, appearing in House and Garden magazine and also being admired by the renowned architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner in a 1964 publication.

Sandgate is a quiet village next to the larger coastal town of Folkestone. It has a spectacular, secluded beach which is a (very) short walk from the house. Folkestone has recently benefitted from an upgraded train service to London, allowing journey times of just 55 minutes into St. Pancras.
