Uplands is situated on The Droveway, a highly sought after residential road, with far reaching views to the surrounding countryside and distant sea views. St Margaret's Bay forms an attractive fold in the dramatic White Cliffs of Dover, with neighbouring countryside recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a network of footpaths running along the cliff tops. The sheltered beach has a popular cafe and The Coastguard Inn, whilst the village centre itself is approximately half a mile distant with a general store, post office and local primary school. More comprehensive amenities are available in Deal to the north and Dover to the south, together with the culturally rich Cathedral city of Canterbury only 25 minutes by car. The mainline train station at nearby Martin Mill, includes a link to the Javelin High Speed service to London St Pancras.
Set back from the road and taking full advantage of its position, Uplands is an enchanting house retaining considerable character throughout with its accommodation arranged over three floors. The ground floor is approached via a covered entrance porch and vestibule with two reception rooms to front, the sitting room enjoying a dual aspect, wood block flooring and a beamed ceiling complement the room with brick fireplace continuing to be a focal point. The dining room is next door giving access to a sun lounge with elevated views overlooking the gardens below. To the rear is a homely kitchen, opening to a separate inner hallway with versatile room well suited as a bedroom and serviced by a shower/cloakroom next door. The lower ground floor provides access to the garden and ample storage space under the house along with a third reception room and bathroom (presently not in use). On the first floor are three bedrooms and family bathroom all benefiting from a delightful outlook.
