DESCRIPTION
Berwick House is an exceptional property offering circa 3000 square feet of impeccably presented accommodation following an extensive refurbishment for the current owners. The house is enviably situated in an exclusive location and occupies a generous plot of approximately one third of an acre from where it commands some wonderful views over Hythe and of the sea. On first impressions the house appears to be a substantial single storey dwelling but appearances can be deceiving as this substantial property has been cleverly designed to compliment the environment and the full scale of Berwick House can only be fully appreciated from the rear. An impressive reception hall sets the theme for the rest of the house with its galleried stairwell and double doors opening to the impressive sitting room which enjoys a wood burning fire and doors to a south-west/sea facing balcony. The principal bedroom suite with en-suite bathroom and dressing room is also on the first floor as are two further bedrooms and a sleek modern shower room. On the ground floor there is a beautifully equipped and recently refitted kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility room, a dining room leading to the conservatory, two further bedrooms, a bathroom, study with en-suite shower room and a large games room. Adjoining the house and with its own entrance is the former double garage which has been converted and is currently used as a gym although could equally be a studio or ideal as an office for those working from home. There is also considerable scope to reconfigure the accommodation to create an annexe (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The gardens are a delight having been designed with relative ease of maintenance in mind, being delightfully secluded and incorporating various areas, ideal for alfresco entertaining and incorporating an impressive gazebo and hot tub. There is also ample parking on the driveway to the front. EPC Rating Band C.
