For Sale - Earlsfield Road, Hythe, CT21 - £850,000

Front, Earlsfield Road, Hythe, CT21

DESCRIPTION
Enviably situated in a prime and much sought after residential location, this handsome period house has been the subject of a recent and sympathetic programme of repair, refurbishment and restoration. This has included, but is not limited to, rewiring, the connection of Virgin ultrafast fibreoptic broadband, new boiler and central heating system, replacement double glazing, repairs to the fabric of the building, the installation of a beautiful new kitchen and bathroom, extensive redecoration as well as the restoration and replacement of certain original features. It is fair to say that there is more work to complete but this is largely of a cosmetic nature and will allow prospective purchasers the opportunity to finish the property to suit their own decorative tastes.

The accommodation, which is of particularly comfortable proportions, exudes charm and character throughout and is arranged over three floors. It comprises a welcoming entrance hall with parquet flooring and original staircase, sitting room with an impressive fireplace, family room opening onto the garden, beautifully fitted kitchen/dining room with quartz worktops and Rangemaster stove and a utility room. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a stunning bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms on the second floor with two large storage cupboards which lend themselves to the creation of a second bathroom.

The house enjoys a delightfully secluded south facing garden with an array of mature shrubs and specimen trees. It also benefits from direct access to the banks of the Royal Military Canal and there is also a generously sized workshop with an external power supply. To the front of the house there is off street parking on the driveway.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.

SITUATION
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 bustling High Street offering a variety of independent shops, cafes, boutiques, 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).
