Front, Earlsfield Road, Hythe, CT21

Melbourne Lodge is a handsome detached house situated on one of Hythe's premier roads. The property has been in the ownership of the same family for the best part of 55 years and it is fair to say that it would now benefit from general updating, but has the potential to provide an exceptionally comfortable family home.

The accommodation offers versatile accommodation of elegant proportions with a wealth of original features retained throughout and comprises a generous entrance hall, dining room, sitting room with doors leading out to the rear garden, kitchen leading out to a utility room and rear lobby and cloakroom. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate w.c. and two further bedrooms on the second floor.

A particularly appealing aspect of the property is the setting with a delightful green and leafy backdrop onto the banks of the Royal Military Canal. There is direct access from the 130ft south facing garden onto the tow path from where pleasant walks into to town, to Seabrook and across the golf course to the beach can be enjoyed. The is also a detached garage and a single parking space. EPC Rating Band F.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.

The property forms part of a highly regarded road, on level ground, moments from the attractive unspoilt seafront and beach and backing directly onto the tow path alongside the historic Royal Military Canal. The town centre with its busy High Street, 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose) and range of independent shops, restaurants, and doctors' surgeries is within a pleasant stroll. There is a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities available nearby, including the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre, cricket, lawn tennis, bowls, 2 golf courses, sailing club, etc.

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 and Ashford International Passenger Terminal with regular Eurostar services to Paris & Brussels (both 2 hours) is only 20 minutes by car. The ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate).
