Penthouse With Sea Views At Sandgate Development

Posted 1 April 2021 by Keith Osborne

There's still a chance to purchase a prestige property at a multi-award-winning development in the south Kent coast...

Property-hunters craving an uninterrupted panorama of the sea from their luxurious home still have an opportunity to snap up a penthouse at Sandgate Pavilions, a development in Kent which won a WhatHouse? Award in 2020.

It’s a flagship scheme from Sunningdale House Developments which collected Gold in the Best Luxury Development category at the housebuilding industry’s most prestigious awards event. The judges said that the scheme offers “the hedonistic dream of luxury seaside living”.

Set uphill from the esplanade between Folkestone and Hythe, it is a collection of just 36 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments over three buildings with striking contemporary ‘Riviera-style’ architecture and exceptional views of the Strait of Dover and English Channel towards France.

Sandgate PavilionsOn the top floor of Martello House is a two-bedroom penthouse that provides a lavish 1,593 sq ft of living space, with floor-to-ceiling glazing and a spacious south-facing terrace with seamless glass balustrades, providing views and sounds of the sea and ‘bringing the outside in’, ideal for outdoor entertaining and watching sunsets.

The hub of this penthouse is the dual-aspect kitchen/living/dining room. This substantial space has the kitchen units and worktops on one wall, leaving flexibility for decorating and furnishing the remainder of the room. There are two sets of sliding doors to the terrace.

The main bedroom is another big room and has its own balcony in addition to an en suite with feature standalone bath. Bedroom two is another double with its own balcony. More importantly than ever for some buyers, this property has a separate study to make a perfect home office. There’s also a guest shower room.

There’s bespoke interior design and a luxury specification. The joinery has been sourced from Spanish craftspeople and the kitchens from Germany. Details include handmade baths, hand-crafted fitted wardrobes and individually-designed tiling. There’s a glass-walled bathrooms to take in the view while relaxing and to provide an ambient temperature and allow air filtration, each apartment benefits from a Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery system.

Sandgate PavilionsDavid Pownceby, CEO of Sunningdale House, said: “To win a WhatHouse? Award in such a competitive category is something pretty special, especially for a young company. The challenges we have faced in this industry have been unprecedented, but Sandgate Pavilions is a development that we are extremely proud of. This award is for everyone at Sunningdale House, it demonstrates our vision, our technical and delivery capability and, especially, our customer focus. Turner Jackson Day Architects deserve their share of the glory too for these stunning landmark cliff-side buildings which so impressed the judges.”

Nestled in the hillside, Sandgate Pavilions also offers secluded security and for additional peace of mind: a motorised security entrance gate (vehicular and pedestrian), an electronic video door entry system and apartment entrance doors with spyhole and five-lever deadlocks. There is lift access to all floors.

Sandgate Pavilions has seen considerable interest, including that from some celebrities. This penthouse comes with two parking spaces and is priced at £950,000. Prices for available two- and three-bedroom apartments range from £675,000 to £975,000.
