The accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule opening onto an impressive entrance hall which leads to a lovely sitting room flooded with light from its French windows to the garden, enjoying an open fire and open-plan to the adjoining snug. There is a wonderful dining room with some delightful features and a large open plan kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke fittings. Beyond this is the family room.

On the second floor there is a further double bedroom with wonderful sea views and a study.

The rear garden is delightfully secluded and attractively presented. It incorporates two terraces, both ideal for alfresco entertaining, the second perfect for maximising the stunning sea views and sunsets.

Barrack Hill is a desirable location being high enough up the hillside 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 and there are two highly regarded Grammar Schools in Folkestone with a regular bus service providing access to both.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 1.7 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. Eurostar trains to Paris and Brussels also depart from the latter. The Channel Tunnel Terminal is around 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)
