Sold STC - Bartholomew Lane, Saltwood, CT21 - £640,000

Rear, Bartholomew Lane, Saltwood, CT21

44 Bartholomew Lane is a hidden gem. The property is set well back from Bartholomew Lane and is approached via a meandering brick pathway beneath a canopy of overhanging shrubs and trees. The path then opens out to a sunny courtyard before the front façade. The house was converted from a coach house and as such has a unique charm all of its own. There are many period features including exposed floorboards throughout much of the ground floor and a lovely fireplace in the sitting room.

The accommodation is spacious and free flowing with the entrance hall leading to the cloakroom, utility room and a large kitchen/dining room, beyond this is the well proportioned sitting room with doors onto the garden. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a bathroom.

A particularly attractive feature of this home is the gardens which are part walled, enjoys a sunny aspect and are delightfully secluded.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.

The property is within moments of Saltwood's picturesque village green and close to the local shop, restaurant, public house, historic church and castle, all virtually on the doorstep. 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, 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose & Sainsburys) and range of independent shops and restaurants is a short drive away. There is a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including sailing, tennis, bowls, 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.
