Front, Dental Street, Hythe, CT21

Marples is a handsome detached property which occupies a generous plot (which totals close to quarter of an acre) in the heart of the sought after Conservation Area, just one road back from the High Street. The house has been in the ownership of the same family for many years and it is fair to say that it would now benefit from general updating, but, with considerable scope to extend (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained) has the potential to provide an exceptionally comfortable family home in a delightfully secluded setting.

The accommodation is of comfortable proportions with all of the principal rooms facing south and comprises a generous entrance hall leading to a large sitting room, separate dining room which is open plan to the galley kitchen beyond which is the rear lobby, pantry and utility cupboard. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, a shower room and a separate w.c. together with a staircase leading to a useful attic room. There are some lovely views over Hythe and of the sea from the first floor.

Outside the gardens are a delight with a secluded south facing, part walled front garden, an equally secluded rear garden and ample parking surrounding the detached garage.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan. EPC Rating F.

Dental Street is situated within the desirable Conservation Area of the town, just behind the vibrant High Street, with its variety of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose), doctors' surgeries, etc. The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are only a little further and there are a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including 2 golf courses and the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 3 miles) and access to the M20 (Junction 11 - 4 miles). The High Speed Link rail service to Stratford and St Pancras is available from Folkestone West (5 miles) and Ashford International (10 miles), with journey times of 53 and 37 minutes respectively. Eurostar trains to Paris and Brussels also depart from the latter.

The Channel Tunnel Terminal is only just over a mile away the ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)
