Sold STC - Fairlight Road, Hythe, CT21 - £575,000

Front, Fairlight Road, Hythe, CT21

Originally built circa 1930 by Charliers, local builders held in high regard, this most attractive detached chalet house offers surprisingly spacious accommodation of particularly comfortable proportions with much original detail throughout. It would now benefit from some very general updating but having been thoughtfully extended in the past (with scope to be further extended should additional space be required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained)), has the potential to prove an exceptionally comfortable family home and is considered well worthy of any expenditure required.

The accommodation comprises a charming entrance hall, spacious sitting room with wood burning stove, dining room opening on to the garden, large study (or fourth bedroom), kitchen/breakfast room and a cloak/utility room. On the first floor there are three comfortable bedrooms (the master with an en-suite shower room) and a family bathroom.

The house occupies a generous corner plot with delightfully secluded gardens to three sides. To the end of the garden, accessed from Bartholomew Lane, is a double width driveway providing parking and access to the detached garage. There is additional parking at the side of the garage.

Fairlight Road is viewed as being amongst Hythe's most desirable locations being high enough up the hill to benefit from lovely views over the town and to sea, yet remaining within reasonable walking distance of the vibrant High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys & Aldi), 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, cricket, squash and bowls clubs etc. Schools are also excellent with Hythe Bay C of E Primary, Saltwood C of E Primary, St Augustines Catholic Primary & Brockhill Park Performing arts College all being accessible together with boys and girls Grammar Schools in Folkestone.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 1.5 miles) and access to the M20 (Junction 11 - 2.3 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 around 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate).
