Sold STC - Cannongate Gardens, Hythe, CT21 - £1,275,000

Front, Cannongate Gardens, Hythe, CT21

Having been the subject of an extensive programme of remodelling, refurbishment and extension, this exceptional single storey dwelling has been transformed into something quite exceptional and befitting of its exclusive location at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac in an elevated position from where it commands uninterrupted, panoramic views over Hythe, of the sea and around the bay.

The property has been thoughtfully redesigned to compliment a modern day lifestyle and now offers splendid living spaces including a formal sitting room with cosy solid fuel burning stove and large picture windows perfectly framing the views and a stunning open plan kitchen/dining living space incorporating a splendid bespoke kitchen by Thoroughly Wood and large expanses of glazing opening to and uniting the space with not only the views but also the well equipped outdoor entertaining areas. There are three sumptuous double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms and the principal room with a walk-in wardrobe. There is also a family bathroom. Throughout the property there is an integrated music system and high quality timber effect flooring. In addition to the main building is a substantial and beautifully presented outbuilding with a ground floor office with cloakroom and first floor playroom. This could be easily adapted to provide an entirely self contained annexe (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The outside space is an incredible asset to the property and is transformed at night by a thoughtfully considered lighting installation. There are large natural stone and decked terraces positioned to take full advantage of the southerly aspect and sea views, the area accessed from the kitchen being equipped with an outdoors kitchen and barbeque area. To the rear there is a delightfully secluded, lush garden with an additional area of garden opposite the property ensuring the owners can protect their views. There is also ample parking and an integral garage.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
