Front, Harpswood Lane, Hythe, CT21

Harpswood Lane is a particularly sought after residential location betwixt the centre of Hythe and the Village Green at Saltwood with its well regarded public house, newsagents and popular café. Hythe High Street is within reasonable walking distance with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsbury and Aldi), doctors' and dentists' 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, cricket, bowls, squash and tennis clubs and the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre.

The property is also conveniently situated for access to St Augustines Primary School, Saltwood Primary School, Hythe Bay Primary School and Brockhill Park Performing Arts College. The larger town of Folkestone is 6 miles and the Cathedral City of Canterbury 16 miles.

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 - 3.5 miles). The High Speed Link rail service to Stratford and St Pancras is available from Folkestone West (6 miles) and Ashford International (12 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 4 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 15 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)

This well situated, attractive detached bungalow has been extensively improved for the current owners and offers beautifully presented accommodation of very comfortable proportions. This includes an entrance porch, a large entrance hall which has been used as a dining room by the owners, generous sitting/dining room leading to a conservatory and a smartly fitted kitchen. There are two double bedrooms, a contemporary bathroom and a separate cloakroom.

The property benefits from ample off street parking on the block paved driveway before the detached garage. The garden to the front of the bungalow has been designed for ease of maintenance and a side gate gives access to a sheltered terrace, also accessed from the kitchen, to the side of the property. Beyond this the delightfully secluded south facing garden incorporates an expanse of lawn, further terrace, garden shed and a delightful elevated decked terrace, the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the views of the sea whilst enjoying an aperitif at sunset.
