Plot 23 - Reserved..........Live in your own slice of Military history in Folkestone when you purchase a property at The Officers Mess Apartments. A meticulous restoration programme has yielded a unique collection of character homes set along a spectacular stretch of the Kent coastline. Choose from one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, and one three bedroom mews house, knowing you will become a custodian of Britain s illustrious military heritage. Each property is one-of-a-kind, enjoying high ceilings, large windows and a private courtyard area all accessed via a dramatic columned entrance porch.

For a coastal town, Folkestone enjoys superb connections to London. The high speed rail service connects rail travellers to both St.Pancras International in the heart of the capital and mainland Europe via the Eurostar, while the M20 provided a direct link to Ashford, Maidstone and M25/A20 for South East London and beyond. Activity is concentrated along the Old High Street and Tontine Street, which together create Folkestone s buzzing Creative Quarter. Artists, producers, independent shops, creative businesses, open studios and galleries sit side-by-side with caf s, a performing arts centre, restaurants and new additions, such as The Glassworks digital hub. Meander along the cobbled streets, join a guided tour of the local art or simply sit back with a drink and watch the creatives at work. Complementing the Creative Quarter is The Harbour Arm a revitalised promenade stretching from the old railway station to Folkestone s lighthouse. Along the way are restaurants, bars and pop-up street food stalls, including the critically-acclaimed Rocksalt restaurant, which boasts some of the best panoramas across Folkestone Harbour and the English Channel.

Picture Room Measurements Notes
History PreservedShorncliffe Garrison has long played an important role in England s defences, with an on-site Army presence stretching back as far as 1794. Some of the most pivotal military decisions were made in the Officers Mess aided by the easily-accessed views across the Channel to France. The Garrison has served as a staging post for troops destined for the Boer and Napoleonic Wars, as well as World War I and World War II. It was also the birthplace of the Shorncliffe Method - a style of military training that revolutionised how battles were fought and a practice that still influences the Army's training today.
Sea And SandFrom Folkestone, the English Channel stretches out as far as the eye can see, with vantage points around every corner Copt Point being one of the most stunning. Along the coast is Hythe, Samphire Hoe and the unmistakable White Cliffs of Dover, with Romney Marsh providing alternative places to watch the waves ebb and flow. For something less tidal, explore the Royal Military Canal calm waters that stretch for 28 miles from the Sandgate end of Folkestone to Cliff End in East Sussex. Breathtaking vistas, rugged cliffs, sweeping bays and a glimpse of France on a clear day make Folkestone one of Kent s premier coastal locations. The town s main beach is perfect for those who prefer sand between their toes, while the pebbles of Sandgate make it the place to skim stones. Sunny Sands is such a mesmerising spot that it distracted Charles Dickens, who had settled on the shore to try and write his novel, Little Dorrit. In contrast, The Warren and the East Cliffs offer wilder more windswept beauty, with a mix of sand, pebbles and coastal meadows giving way to secluded bays and views towards the chalky hills of the North Downs.
Social And SportActivity is concentrated along the Old High Street and Tontine Street, which together create Folkestone s buzzing Creative Quarter. Artists, producers, independent shops, creative businesses, open studios and galleries sit side-by-side with caf s, a performing arts centre, restaurants and new additions, such as The Glassworks digital hub. Meander along the cobbled streets, join a guided tour of the local art or simply sit back with a drink and watch the creatives at work. Complementing the Creative Quarter is The Harbour Arm a revitalised promenade stretching from the old railway station to Folkestone s lighthouse. Along the way are restaurants, bars and pop-up street food stalls, including the critically-acclaimed Rocksalt restaurant, which boasts some of the best panoramas across Folkestone Harbour and the English Channel. As you would expect from a coastal town, there are ample opportunities to take to the water. Folkestone Yacht and Motorboat Club, Folkestone Sea Sports and Hythe & Saltwood Sailing Club are just three organisations waiting to assist but there are alternatives for those who haven t found their sea legs. Join one of the many tennis, cricket and bowls clubs, which sit alongside Folkestone Sports Centre and Three Hills Sports Park.
