Schlupfwinkle, Cannongate Road, Hythe, CT21

Schlupfwinkle, meaning "a hideout", is a unique single storey dwelling occupying an unusually generous and secluded plot, situated in an exclusive location from where it enjoys some lovely views over Hythe and to the sea. The property has been in the ownership of the same family for many years and whilst appearing to have been generally well maintained, does now require general updating and improvement but is considered well worthy of any expenditure required and has been priced accordingly.

The accommodation, which is of particularly comfortable proportions, comprises an entrance hall leading to the generous sitting room which is set beneath a vaulted ceiling and is open plan to the dining room. There is a spacious kitchen, side porch, sun room, three bedrooms and a wet room. The gardens are delightful and encompass the property to all sides with a "woodland garden" at the front, large level expanse of lawn to the side and rear enjoying a southerly aspect and a shed and mature shrubs on the fourth side. There is a generous garage and a driveway accessed from Cannongate Road.
