Fancy a sleepover?


When it comes to buying a house, there’s no turning back – and you can’t exactly arrange a quick overnight stay to test it out before you make the all-important decision. But what if there was a way to do exactly that? Here’s everything you need to know about this ocean view apartment at Shoreline Folkestone.

Look Inside… A £2.8 Million Ocean View Penthouse

Sea view living room with navy blue velvet sofa and cream sofa

Less than an hour’s train journey from London, this dazzling two-bedroom apartment boasts one of Kent’s most coveted addresses: it stands directly on the beach in the port town of Folkestone. The best part, however? Potential buyers can stay over for a night before they decide to make an offer.

Kitchen with white cabinets, a circular wooden dining table and a white pendant light.

The centrepiece of the gorgeous property is its open plan kitchen/living space, which is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows commanding uninterrupted views of the ocean. Both the enormous rooftop terrace and dramatic curved balcony provide further vantage points from which to enjoy these breathtaking views – and they’re large enough to accommodate multiple seating and dining areas. There’s no better place to throw a dinner party.

Heading back inside, you’ll find a cloakroom and utility room off the hallway, with the two bedrooms positioned at either end of the apartment. The principal suite encompasses a dressing area, ensuite and private balcony, while the guest bedroom also boasts its own ensuite as well as direct access to the roof terrace.

Bedroom with cream walls, burnt orange cushions, and sea views

With luxurious interiors and enviable views, there’s a strong possibility that you’ll fall head over heels for such an incredible property – but if you’re feeling unsure, you can simply move in for a night to try it out for yourself. This rather unique proposition is open to anyone in the initial stages of the buying process, and it even comes with dinner at an award-winning restaurant on the Harbour, as well as breakfast nearby, so you can get a real taste of life as a resident. What could be better?

Ensuite bathroom with grey tiles.

Available through The London Broker for £2.8 million. thelondonbroker.com

The overnight stay experience is available from the first week of July at the discretion of the Shoreline Folkestone team, and will only be available to those that pass initial qualifying checks.
