Three of the best: in Sandgate, Westwell and Wigmore

Sandgate £750,000

This detached family home with panoramic views over the English Channel would suit Francophiles as it is just 10 minutes from the Channel Tunnel terminal.

A direct pathway at the end of the sought-after cul de sac in which it sits leads into Sandgate and to the beach; Hythe and Folkestone are only a couple of miles away.

An elegant and spacious open-plan living/dining room has two sets of sliding patio doors opening onto a large south-facing balcony with automatic awning.

There’s a beautifully appointed bespoke kitchen/breakfast room and upstairs you’ll find a master bedroom with en suite, the family bathroom and two double bedrooms.

Bedroom four is currently used as a study and number five as a utility room, while a large loft could be converted into one large bedroom with en suite, or two further bedrooms with balconies (subject to planning consents).

Westwell £xxxx

This immaculate four-bedroom detached house in the pretty village of Westwell at the foot of the North Downs makes an ideal home for all the family.

Inside you’ll find a place of great character, from the beamed sitting room with open fire to the spacious kitchen/breakfast room with a range cooker, cosy family room and a games room converted from the garage.

Upstairs there’s an en-suite mater bedroom and three further bedrooms, one also en suite, plus a Jack and Jill bathroom.

The rear garden has a large patio with steps leading to lawns surrounded by raised borders of mature shrubs. A further conifer-screened area is ideal for trampolines and swings.

Wigmore £400,000-£450,000

This four-bedroom chalet bungalow is deceptively spacious and really needs to be seen to appreciate its sheer size and versatility.

The ground floor comprises a 24ft lounge with feature fireplace and double doors to the formal dining room, where period features such as dado and picture rails add character.

Also on this level are two double bedrooms and shower room, plus a country style family kitchen/breakfast room which leads to the large conservatory overlooking the 25ft swimming pool and gardens.

On the first floor a large landing offers an ideal study area and there are two further double bedrooms, with the en-suite master bedroom having double doors to the balcony and great views of the rear garden.
