Brockhill Road is an exclusive location, close to the centre of Saltwood village, with its pretty village green, local shop, restaurant, 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, 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose & Sainsburys) and range of independent shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants is within reasonable walking distance. There is 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.

Commuting links are excellent with the motorway network (M20 Junction 11) 3 miles distant, main line railway station at Sandling 2 miles, the Channel Tunnel Terminal 4 miles, the ferry port of Dover 10 miles and Ashford International Passenger Station 12 miles. The High Speed Link is available from both Folkestone (5 miles) and Ashford (12 miles) with journey times to St Pancras of around 53 minutes and 38 minutes respectively (all times and distances are approximate).

This most attractive detached house occupies a particularly generous plot in an exclusive location. The property is understood to have been built by Charliers, builders held in high repute, in the 1930's and has been in the hands of the same owners for many years. It is fair to say that it does now require a complete programme of refurbishment but, with scope to extend (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained) presents an opportunity to create an exceptionally comfortable family home and is considered well worthy of the expenditure required.

The property currently comprises an entrance hall leading to a generous sitting room with an attractive original fireplace and double doors opening to the dining room. There is a sun room running across the rear of the house, a kitchen to the front and a cloakroom. The first floor comprises three double bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate cloakroom - there is considerable scope to convert the attic space (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained). The gardens are a particularly attractive aspect of the property with a magnificent acer to the front affording a great deal of privacy. There is a generous driveway providing parking and access to the integral garage. The garden top the rear is also generous in size and enjoys a westerly aspect.
