Sold STC - Cliff Road, Hythe, CT21 - £895,000

Front, Cliff Road, Hythe, CT21

DESCRIPTION
A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached bungalow, with a wide frontage of approximately 100 feet to one of Hythe's most exclusive roads, occupying a generous plot of approximately 0.3 of an acre, from where it commands a superb southerly aspect with views over Hythe and of the sea, to the rear it enjoys the picturesque backdrop of Sene Valley Golf Course.

The property has been in the hands of the same family for many years and it is fair to say that it would now benefit from a programme of updating and improvement. There is also considerable scope to extend/redevelop the property (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained) and given the unique and particularly special setting combined with the size of the plot, it is considered well worthy of the expenditure required.

The accommodation has been designed to ensure that the majority of the principal rooms face south in order to maximise the views and natural light. This comprises an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, two bedrooms, bath and cloakrooms on the ground floor. The first floor incorporates a generous landing/study area, bedroom and bathroom. There is also an integral garage. The gardens are afforded a great deal of privacy being set behind a mature beech hedge. They are laid extensively to lawn with a wealth of mature shrubs and specimen trees. The generous gravelled driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles. EPC Rating Band D.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
