shoreline – the place to live
Shoreline, the first residential development by Folkestone Harbour & Seafront Development Company, is open for expressions of interest. The building is progressing well and the show homes are expected to open in Autumn 2022. There are penthouse suites, apartments and townhouses available. Sales Manager Rachel Banks-Nash talks to Folkelife about what’s on offer and why Shoreline is the place to buy in 2023.
“I’m from Folkestone but have been working in different areas of property across the world for the past 30 years. When I heard about the new development on the Seafront it raised my curiosity. I decided to carry out some research for my own interest; what I was seeing was exciting. This building is cleverly designed and fits in so well with the period statement of Marine Crescent behind it.”
maximising on folkestone’s potential
The Folkestone Harbour & Seafront Development Company have been investing in the town for many years. The Harbour renovations are testament to the team’s work in creating a community that lives and works in and for Folkestone.
“The town has changed so much since I was growing up here. I walked down The Old High Street and thought ‘this is amazing!’ There’s a feel to Folkestone that you don’t get with other seaside towns. It seems that people want to live here, not just because of the benefits of living close to the sea and beach but because of the community and opportunities there are here, particularly for those who are more creative.
“What I think is clear from all the work that has been done around the Harbour is that it’s been done for the benefit of the town. There are so many new jobs that have been created, so many more opportunities created for locals and anyone wanting to develop new ideas here.”
shoreline – attention to detail
“If you look at Shoreline; the quality and attention to the build demonstrates that this is something which is going to be here for several hundred years. Shoreline is being built with so much attention to detail, it’s being built to last.
“Looking closely at it, I think ‘how are they doing this?’; the curvature of the walls for example is incredibly complex. This building looks like nothing else and it will stand the test of time; it’s not going to date.”
It’s all about the view
“We have an extensive enquiry list which we are in the process of contacting. Everyone we’ve spoken to so far is very excited about the development and all that it has to offer. The views from Shoreline are spectacular, and yes, the obvious view is of the sea, which changes on a daily basis. When the sun is out, the Folkestone Harbour coastline is like the South of France! You can look at the White Cliffs to the east, or views of the Romney Marsh on the west.
“My job is to take you from your very first expression of interest right the way through to the day you move in. My background in Estate Agency and new build property will enable me to assist in the conveyance process. I’ll be working to make your move as smooth and stress-free as possible. I’ll be there to help you every step of the way.”
