4 bed Detached House
Helena Corniche is a small and exclusive development, situated on the hillside above Sandgate and overlooking the English Channel, approximately 2¼ miles from both the ancient Cinque Ports Town of Hythe and the larger town of Folkestone.
The quaint, unspoilt Cinque Ports Town of Hythe, approximately 2¼ miles distant, provides a wide range of amenities including 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi), various independent shops and restaurants, together with a selection of sports and leisure facilities, golf courses, swimming pool, etc. The fashionable village of Sandgate with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants and long stretch of shingle beach with sailing club is a short walk away and the coastal path can be followed along the foot of The Leas all the way to Folkestone harbour.
The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications as there are main line railway stations within easy reach and an access point for the M20 motorway (Junction 12) only 2 miles away, making it possible to reach Central London within about 1¼ hours by both road and rail. The High Speed Rail Link offers a journey time to the City of just under an hour and is available from Folkestone West & Central and also Ashford Stations. The Channel Tunnel Terminal, with regular shuttle services to the Continent, is just over two miles away and Ashford International Passenger Terminal with Eurostar services to Paris & Brussels is only 20 minutes by car. The ferry port of Dover is approximately 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate).
