Edwardian splendour in an exclusive area
The article below may contain outdated information.
Oakhurst is a distinctively handsome Edwardian detached house built around 1930 with elegant proportions surrounded by attractive formal gardens.
The property is located in Dixwell Road a very sought after location at the westerly end of the Leas Promenade in the west end of Folkestone, close to the seaside village of Sandgate.
Sally Jinks of Smith Woolley said: “The property is a fine example of the work of the architect Mr Edgar Ranger and maintains a great deal of its original detail including decorative moulded ceilings, deep cornices and oak panelling”.
The impressive oak front door opens into a vestibule area with Art Deco double doors leading through to the wonderful oak panelled reception hall. Original Kansas red oak flooring extends through the majority of the main ground floor reception rooms.
Lattice windows feature throughout the property and a beautiful oak staircase leads to a galleried landing with 5 generous double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (2 en-suites).
Outside a former double garage, presently used as storage, could potentially provide a large annexe, which could attach to the main house with the necessary planning consent.
A charming walled garden surrounds the property encompassing neatly arranged flowerbeds and styled lawns. A variety of decorative shrubs provide further colour to this beautiful garden which complements the grandeur of Oakhurst perfectly.
Communications are excellent with the high speed and mainline railway station within walking distance offering services to London St. Pancras with a journey time of under an hour. Quality girls and boys grammar schools are both within walking distance.
Price guide of £1,495,000.
