The view, Cliff Road, Hythe, CT21

Pinocchio is a detached timber framed Colt bungalow situated on the coveted southern side of Cliff Road from where the property enjoys a beautiful southerly aspect with panoramic views of the sea and to the coast of France on a clear day.

The property occupies a generous plot of approximately 0.3 of an acre and whilst providing very comfortable two bedroom living accommodation itself, presents an exciting and increasingly rare opportunity to redevelop a unique and enchanting site with a contemporary home designed to suit the intending purchasers own tastes and requirements (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The setting is delightful with a meandering approach downwards from Cliff Road where there is a garage and parking at street level. There are level areas of lawn from where sea views can be enjoyed. Beyond the bungalow steps lead down to the lower garden where there is a further level expanse of lawn, trees and various shrubs.

NB A site review has been conducted for the current owner and further details are available from the agent's offices.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
