In a pleasant semi-rural location with some wonderful walking opportunities surrounding, Stonewolds is well positioned for access to Folkestone, Hawkinge and Canterbury and also to the M20.

Hawkinge provides good local shopping facilities including a Lidl and a Tesco Express, bus services run between Folkestone and Hawkinge and continue on to Canterbury. Folkestone town centre is around 2 miles distant as are Folkestone Central and Folkestone West Stations where the High Speed Link service to London, St Pancras is available (journey times of around 53 minutes). The M20 (Junction 13), the Channel Tunnel Terminal and Ferry Port of Dover are all within easy reach. Folkestone boasts some wonderful attractions including The Leas Promenade with pleasant walks, fine views of the English Channel to France, bandstand and concert hall, from where paths lead down to the long stretches of shingle beach, coastal park and the recently revitalised Harbour Arm with champagne bar, live music etc. There are a number of good schools in the vicinity, including boys' and girls' grammar schools.

The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe, approximately 6 miles distant, provides a wide range of amenities including 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi), various independent shops and restaurants, together with a selection of sports and leisure facilities, golf courses, swimming pool, etc. (All times and distances are approximate).

Stonewolds occupies an appealing elevated position and stands on a generous plot from where it commands a magnificent south westerly vista with stunning views over Folkestone reaching around the coastline to Dungeness in the far distance.

The property was constructed for the owners family in the 1960's and is now being offered for sale for the first time since it was built. Whilst appearing to have been maintained over the years, it is fair to say that the property would now benefit from some general updating and improvement but presents an exciting opportunity for intending purchasers to tailor the bungalow to suit their own tastes and requirements. In addition to the main dwelling which comprises generous living spaces and five bedrooms, there are substantial outbuildings including a garage large enough to accommodate up to four vehicles alongside which is a large carport. Above this area is an additional living space/office. There is also self contained annexe with bed/sitting room, kitchen area and shower room and above this is a further hobbies room. There is a swimming pool (in need of repair) and the associated outbuildings. Before the garage there is plenty of parking and there is a large level garden at the front. This unique property needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.
