Believed to have once been part of Sir Philip Sassoon's estate, Danehurst is set in stunning grounds of around 3.4 acres, this handsome detached period house has been in the ownership of the same family for two generations. It is fair to say that it now requires a comprehensive programme of refurbishment throughout but with 3603 square feet of accommodation, it presents a unique and exciting opportunity for intending purchasers to tailor the property to suit their own tastes and requirements. The house has the added advantage of being unlisted.

The spacious and versatile accommodation currently comprises a grand reception hall, sitting room overlooking the formal garden, large dining room, study, kitchen, utility room, various domestic offices, cloakroom and a wet room on the ground floor. The first floor comprises a grand master suite with large en-suite bathroom and dressing room, four further bedrooms, bathroom, shower room, W.C. and cloakroom.

The grounds which total in the region of 3.4 acres comprise large expanses of level lawns with some magnificent mature trees, deep herbaceous borders, a former kitchen garden and vinery (dilapidated), paddocks with an original "Pillbox", stables and a detached double garage. There is ample parking at the front of the house.

For room sizes refer to the floor plan.

Positioned between the desirable village of Lympne and Court-At-Street, a pretty Hamlet in an idyllic rural location around 4 miles to the west of Hythe, Danehurst is in close proximity to Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, Lympne Castle and there are some lovely walks in the vicinity. Both nearby Lympne and Aldington have very handy convenience stores, well regarded Primary Schools and Public Houses.

A greater variety of facilities can be found in the Cinque Ports Town of Hythe, approximately 4 miles distant, including 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi), a vibrant High Street with various independent shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, together with a selection of sports and leisure facilities, golf courses, swimming pool, and the Hythe Imperial Hotel with pool, gym and spa etc.
