Sold STC - Hillside Street, Hythe, CT21 - £469,950

Front, Hillside Street, Hythe, CT21

This pretty part of Hillside Street falls just outside of the desirable Conservation Area of the town, two roads back from the bustling High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes. The town is also well served by 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi), doctors' surgeries, etc.

The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are a short walk away together with a variety of sports and leisure facilities, including 2 golf courses, swimming pool, cricket, squash, bowls and lawn tennis clubs together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 2 miles) and access to the M20 (Junction 11 - 4 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 just over 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)

This delightful detached chalet bungalow enjoys an idyllic situation on Hythe's picturesque lower hillside from where it commands magnificent southerly views over the town, around the bay and of the sea. The property has been the cherished home of the current owners for many years and they have ensured that it has been well maintained over the years. The accommodation, which is surprisingly spacious, is attractively presented and is arranged to provide an entrance vestibule, sitting room with large south/sea facing picture window, a large dining room opening onto the garden and leading to a separate study/third bedroom, a comfortable kitchen/breakfast room, master bedroom with sea views and en-suite shower room and a bathroom on the ground floor. The second bedroom is a charming room on the first floor and also enjoys lovely views of the sea. There is also scope, if additional space is required, to extend the house further (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property. To the front there is a driveway providing off street parking and leading to a single garage with electronically operated door. The garden slopes gently upward away from the road and has side access to the rear garden. The rear garden is a delight being partially walled and thoughtfully tiered to provide "garden rooms" also with views of the sea from the upper levels. There is also a pretty summer house adjacent to a terrace set beneath a pergola with grape vine, the ideal environment in which to dine alfresco and from where to enjoy the views.
