The property is situated in a particularly desirable location, within a short walk of the centre of Saltwood village, with its pretty village green, local shop, cafe, public house, historic church and castle. There are two excellent primary schools also within a short walk and Brockhill Performing Arts College is only a little further. There are two highly regarded Grammar Schools in Folkestone with a regular bus service providing access to both. Hythe town centre, with its bustling High Street, 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose & Sainsburys) and range of independent shops and restaurants is also within a pleasant walk or short drive of the property. There is a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including sailing, tennis, bowls, cricket clubs etc. together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre and two golf courses. There are many footpaths and bridleways in the vicinity - ideal for horse riding or dog-walking, along with Brockhill Country Park, where there is a play area and other organised outdoor activities.

Commuting links are excellent with the motorway network (M20 Junction 11) 3 miles distant, main line railway station at Sandling 1.6 miles, the Channel Tunnel Terminal 3.5 miles, the ferry port of Dover 10 miles and Ashford International Passenger Station 12 miles. The High Speed Link is available from both Folkestone (5 miles) and Ashford (12 miles) with journey times to St Pancras of around 53 minutes and 38 minutes respectively (all times and distances are approximate).

"Uplands Corner" occupies a prime position from where the property commands a magnificent southerly vista with some particularly fine views over Hythe, of the sea and around the bay to Dungeness to the west. A much loved family home, the property has been well maintained and is generally attractively presented throughout. There is still room for prospective purchasers to make their mark should they wish to. There is also considerable scope to extend (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained) should additional space be required. The comfortably proportioned accommodation is largely concentrated to the southern side of the house in order to maximise the light and views and comprises a generous entrance hall leading to the double aspect open plan reception room with its open fire. Beyond this is the sun room opening onto the garden. The well fitted kitchen/breakfast room leads to a large utility room and there is also a cloakroom on the ground floor. The first floor comprises three bedrooms, all with views, a bathroom and a shower room.

The house occupies a good plot with a wide frontage to Hillcrest Road and is set behind a mature evergreen hedge affording a great deal of privacy. There are delightfully secluded, pretty gardens to three sides and for those seeking a greater level of outside space, Lawrence & Co through their relationship with the Trustees, may be able to facilitate the purchase of the adjacent land (to the west) allowing greater opportunity for expansion which would considerably enhance the property.
