Approached via a path from the road with a gravelled driveway to the side, entry is into a porch which in turn leads to the main reception room and living room to the front. The front room features an inglenook fireplace with a beautiful rustic wooden lintel. The enclosed staircase leads upstairs and there’s an inner hallway which leads to the bathroom passing the access to the cellar and leading to the dining room. The dining room features a beamed ceiling, open fire with brick surround and hearth and the same quarry tile flooring from the front room flows through the hallway to the kitchen door. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units, work surfaces and sink with drainer unit. There’s an oven, four ring gas hob and external access to the garden. The bathroom has a bath, wash hand basin and low level WC. There’s a cellar with restricted head height. Upstairs are two bedrooms off the landing. Outside to the rear is a garden with loads of potential extending to around 110 feet in length.

We love this home for its uniqueness and charming characteristics. The history behind the house is fascinating originally being built in 1737. Then known as ‘Laburnum Cottages’ this dwelling and next door were tied cottages belonging to a farm owned by the Yates family. At the time they stood in an orchard and are reputedly amongst, if not the oldest properties in Cliffs End. There are persistent stories about use by smugglers with ‘passageways running from the cellars’. The shallow and easily accessible Pegwell Bay being less than a mile away. Sadly, no traces of passages or rum barrels remain! They appear to have been lived in by farm workers or various members of the family until first sold in 1876

Cliffs End is an idyllic Kentish village with a strong sense of community situated almost 2 miles West of Ramsgate. The village has a local post office, a petrol station and an 18-hole golf course at St Augustine's Golf Club and is immensely popular with lovers of the great outdoors with Pegwell Bay Country Park nearby and some stunning scenery and amazing walking routes around the area.

The coastal towns of Thanet are close by with their sandy beaches and a wider range of amenities and schools etc. The cathedral city of Canterbury is around 15 miles South West of Cliffs End and the A299 Thanet Way is easily accessible for road commuting. There are regular and high speed rail services with connections to Canterbury and London available at Ramsgate and Minster railway stations.
