An excellently appointed second floor apartment in the ever popular Carlton Leas development fronting the Leas promenade and with panoramic views across the English Channel. The town centre with its range of shops, restaurants and other amenities is nearby and the apartment benefits from a secure underground parking space, good size balcony overlooking the English Channel, and lift service.
Carlton Leas is situated on the famous Leas Promenade within a few minutes walk of the town centre. Folkestone provides good shopping, entertainment and leisure facilities with a good selection of schools in the area. The lovely harbour at Folkestone is a further walk away and enjoys a bustling Harbour Arm with seasonal festivities, and the Old High Street within the Creative Quarter affords charming cafés and eateries, whilst fine dining can be found at the renowned Rocksalt restaurant with its views over the harbour. The harbour area is undergoing a major regeneration programme that will have a positive impact on Folkestone in the future.
Communications are excellent with access to the continent by the Eurostar services from Ashford International (currently suspended), the Channel Tunnel terminal at Cheriton, or via Dover harbour. The M20 motorway is a short drive away leading to London and the M25 orbital. The high speed rail link with a journey time of under an hour to London St Pancras is within walking distance together with rail services to Ashford and London Charing Cross.
