Sold STC - 77b North Road, Hythe, CT21 - £649,950

Views, 77b North Road, Hythe, CT21

This detached house is enviably situated in one of Hythe's most sought after locations and from where it commands spectacular views over the town, of the sea, around the bay to Dungeness and to the coast of France on a clear day. The property whilst appearing to have been generally well maintained it is fair so say it would now benefit from a programme of general updating. However, given its exceptional location and the scarcity of property in the vicinity, is considered well worthy of any expenditure required and presents an increasingly rare opportunity for purchasers to tailor the property to suit their own tastes and requirements.

The accommodation comprises a welcoming entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, four bedrooms, shower room and south facing balcony enjoying views over Hythe and of the sea. On the ground floor is a generous sitting/dining room benefiting from a dumb waiter directly to the kitchen and with doors leading out on to a secluded south facing terrace. The property also benefits from solar panels and a generous part boarded attic space provides considerable potential for conversion to provide additional accommodation (subject to all necessary consents being obtained).

The south facing rear garden being relatively level in the main part, steps lead down to the detached double garage and workshop. The front of the property is accessed from Springfield passage.

North Road is viewed as being one of Hythe's most desirable locations being high enough up the hill to benefit from lovely views over the town and of the sea, yet remaining within a short walk of the High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys & Aldi), doctors' surgeries, etc. The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are only a little further and there are a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including 2 golf courses and the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre, cricket, squash and bowls clubs etc. Schools are also excellent with Hythe Bay C of E Primary, Saltwood C of E Primary, St Augustines Catholic Primary & Brockhill Park Performing Arts College all being accessible.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 3 miles) and access to the M20 (Junction 11 - 4 miles). The High Speed Link rail service to Stratford and St Pancras is available from Folkestone West (5 miles) and Ashford International (10 miles), with journey times of 53 and 37 minutes respectively. The Channel Tunnel Terminal is around 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)
