Sold STC - Cannongate Avenue, Hythe, CT21 - £575,000

Garden, Cannongate Avenue, Hythe, CT21

This highly individual detached house is ideally positioned in a peaceful enclave, within a reasonable walking distance of the town centre and from where it commands a magnificent southerly vista over Hythe, of the sea and, on a fine day, around the bay to Dungeness and at night, to the coast of France. The property appears to have been well maintained and has benefitted from the installation of a new boiler in 2022 and replacement double glazing which still has circa three years to run on the guarantee.

The accommodation is of particularly comfortable proportions with a wide entrance hall leading to two ground floor bedrooms, which have in the past, in conjunction with the adjoining utility room and en-suite shower room, been utilised as a very comfortable self contained annexe with it's own entrance (ideal for a dependant relative or for use as a home office). On the first floor the landing leads to a particularly generous, open plan kitchen/dining/living space which has been designed to compliment a modern lifestyle, incorporates a very comprehensive kitchen with integrated appliances and a wide expanse of glazing opening to a Juliet balcony from where wonderful views can be enjoyed. Beyond the living space is a very pleasant sun room connecting the space with the outside. There are also two bedrooms, the second with an en-suite shower room, the principal bedroom with an adjoining dressing room and a shower room.

To the front of the house there is off street parking on the driveway and a level lawned garden which is afforded a great deal of privacy by some magnificent palms. To the rear is a delightfully secluded courtyard with a pond, summer house and elevated seating platform, the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the views.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
