Front, Bartholomew Lane, Hythe, CT21

NO ONWARD CHAIN. Approached via a gated driveway and set behind a screen of mature shrubs, this substantial detached bungalow enjoys a delightfully secluded setting and offers exceptionally well proportioned, surprisingly spacious accommodation totalling approximate 1790 square feet. The property would now benefit from general updating and improvement but has the potential to provide an exceptionally comfortable home and is considered well worthy of any expenditure required.

The accommodation includes an entrance hall, sitting room, dining hall, kitchen, four bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. There is an integral tandem double garage which has historically been used by the owner as a studio. A particularly attractive aspect of the property is the outside space. This is not over large but of a manageable size with a paved courtyard garden spanning the width of the bungalow to the rear, perfect for the morning sun which can be followed through the narrow side garden and enjoyed late into the evening in the west facing front garden. There is also a driveway providing plenty of parking.

For room sizes refer to the floor plan.

Bartholomew Lane leads to the centre of Saltwood village, with its pretty village green, local shop, pub, historic church and castle. There are two excellent primary schools within only a short walk and Brockhill Performing Arts College is only a little further. There are two highly regarded Grammar Schools in Folkestone with a regular bus service providing access to both. Hythe town centre, with its busy High Street and variety of independent shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants is a short drive or pleasant walk away. The town is also well served by 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose & Sainsburys). There are a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including sailing, tennis, bowls, cricket and squash clubs etc. together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre and two golf courses. There are many footpaths and bridleways in the vicinity - ideal for horse riding or dog-walking, along with Brockhill Country Park, where there is a play area and other organised outdoor activities.
