Property Details


Sold STC - Cobay Close, Hythe, CT21 - £785,000

Front, Cobay Close, Hythe, CT21

This handsome neo Georgian, double fronted, detached house occupies a particularly generous plot on a much sought after cul-de-sac where it fronts onto and enjoys views, from the first floor, over the Royal Military Canal. The property, which appears to have been exceptionally well maintained during the current owners residency, would now benefit from some general updating but, with 2397 sq ft (including the garage) of accommodation has the potential to provide an exceptionally comfortable home.

The bright and airy accommodation comprises a wide and welcoming entrance hall leading to the dual aspect sitting room which leads to a conservatory, a dining room and a kitchen. An enclosed corridor from the kitchen gives access to the garage and to the utility room. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor. The first floor comprises three double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes, the principal room with en-suite shower room and a family bathroom. A useful study room has a staircase accessing the large 32ft fourth bedroom which has potential for conversion into two double bedrooms or for the inclusion of a further bathroom.

The front of the house can be accessed on foot via a shared pathway from Twiss Road, serving just three properties. Vehicular access can be gained from Cobay Close to the rear from which double gates open to a generous driveway which provides off street parking and access to the double garage. Alongside the drive is the garden which spans the width of the house and wraps around to the side with a further expanse of lawn to the front. The garden is delightfully secluded and enjoys a southerly aspect. Offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.

The property is situated in an exclusive and much sought after cul-de-sac on level ground only minutes from the attractive unspoilt seafront and beach and fronting on to the historic Royal Military Canal. The town centre with its busy High Street, 3 supermarkets (including Waitrose which is a short level walk away) and range of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and doctors' surgeries is a short walk away. There is a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities available nearby, including the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre (which is virtually on the door step), cricket, lawn tennis, bowls, 2 golf courses and sailing clubs, etc., many of which are a short walk along the canal bank.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications as there is a main line railway station and access points for the M20 motorway (Junctions 11 and 12) only 3 and 4 miles away respectively, making it possible to reach Central London within about 1½ hours by both road and rail. The Channel Tunnel Terminal, with regular shuttle services to the Continent, is only just over three miles away. Folkestone West (approx 5 miles distant) offers a high speed service to London St Pancras with journey times of under an hour. The ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away.
