Self build plot in Sandgate, Kent


A simply jaw-dropping, self build plot in an enviable, coastal setting.

Set a short way up from the Esplanade, The Corniche is one of the premier roads in Sandgate and offers the most spectacular views over the Channel – on a clear day the French coastline is clearly visible. The plot along with the current planning consent presents the opportunity to create one of the most spectacular coastal homes in the South East.

The current, approved designs allow for off-street parking for 2 vehicles with a pathway to the main entrance at the rear of the property. As you enter the generous foyer, full consideration has been given to maximising the visual impact of the sea views as you lead into the spacious main living space that opens out to a 484 sqft upper balcony. Additionally on this floor, there is a snug/tv room, large utility room, cloakroom plus double bedroom/study.

All three bedrooms on the lower level benefit from coastal views plus en-suites, while the primary bedroom also has a double walk in changing area. There is also a gym plus sizeable plant/garden storage room. From the atrium, double doors open on to the lower patio space.

Outside, the approved landscape design provides a range of completely private, external spaces from which to enjoy the coastal views.

The proposed designs are by leading architect PK Consulting with landscaping design by award-winning Ivy & Whyte Garden Design.

Full details of the planning consent can be found at 22/1904/FH. Please note that the main image shows a variation to the approved design with alterations to the landscaping, driveway and parking arrangements. This is to be determined shortly and full details can be found at 23/1832/FH.

Site plan for a self build plot in Sandgate, Kent


The plot enjoys an enviable position on an exclusive cul-de-sac in Sandgate and is under 2 miles from the centre of Folkestone.

The beach and promenade are a short 6 minute walk with the High Street in Sandgate Village a little further on offering a popular village shop that serves as a post office, off licence and newsagent, two delis, a choice of cafes, antique shops, dry cleaners plus a number of independent retailers, bars and restaurants. The popular rowing club also encompasses the Folkestone Sea Sauna for sea swimmers.

Often voted one the best places to live in the UK, Folkestone does not disappoint. With its eclectic mix of independent shops, galleries, bars, restaurants, coffee shops and The Creative Quarter, it regularly attracts a young, vibrant, creative crowd. The renowned and award winning Rocksalt Folkestone is a real gem with spectacular views overlooking the harbour. The Harbour Arm itself has recently undergone an extremely impressive regeneration with multiple food and coffee outlets, the Lighthouse Champagne Bar and Tasting Rooms, as well as the Brewing Brothers Beachside taproom ideally located on the boardwalk.

The charming Cinque Ports Town of Hythe is approximately 2 miles away and offers a wider range of amenities, including a Waitrose and a Sainsbury’s.

As well as a multitude of walking and cycle routes, there is a wealth of outdoor activities on offer nearby including sailing, windsurfing, rowing, cricket, tennis and bowling. Folkestone Golf Club and Etchinghill Golf Club are also close by, as are the popular links at both Hythe and Littlestone. For those looking for more leisurely activities there is Port Lympne Reserve, the Hythe Imperial Hotel and Spa, Brockhill Park and the Hythe Military Canal where rowing boats can be hired by the hour.

The High Speed Rail service from Folkestone West (1.4 miles) or Folkestone Central (2.3 miles) offers a regular direct service to London in under an hour.

The area is generously served with a number of schools catering for all ages, including Sandgate Primary School, The Folkestone Grammar School for Girls and The Harvey Grammar School for boys all within close proximity. A little further afield there are a number of other primary and secondary schools as well as Turner Free School and Dover College (Independent) a short train ride away.


The plot presents the opportunity to design and manage the construction of your dream home. We can introduce potential buyers to the project architect plus a number of potential contractors if required.
