Description

SITUATED in the picturesque Cinque Port Town of Hythe which offers a good selection of independent shops and restaurants along with Aldi, Waitrose and Sainsbury's stores. The town has an unspoilt seafront together with the historic Royal Military Canal, both offering pleasant walks. Transport links in the area are also very good with the M20 Motorway, Channel Tunnel and Port of Dover within driving distance. High-speed rail services are available from Folkestone West offering fast services to St Pancras London in just over 50 minutes. Primary and secondary schooling is available in Hythe and Saltwood, with both boys' and girls' grammar schools available in nearby Folkestone. The local area is also well served for golf courses, available in Etchinghill, Sene Valley and the Hythe Imperial.

An attractive, well-appointed detached three/four bedroom period home in an elevated location affording commanding views of the surrounding countryside, across Hythe town to the sea beyond. Thought to date back to the 1930s and enjoying a wealth of original features, this family residence also boasts a contemporary style single storey extension to the rear; designed by a local architect, this is a stunning addition to the property and has seamlessly added an extra dimension to the ground floor accommodation. Other features of this beautiful home include a spacious 'Thoroughly Wood' kitchen/dining room, a sitting room with an open fire, a study and snug, and a master bedroom with en suite shower room to name but a few. Outside there are well-tended front and rear gardens, a rear sun terrace, a single garage and off-street parking. An early viewing of this unique family home is considered essential.
