Sold STC - Hillside Street, Hythe, CT21 - £349,950

Front, Hillside Street, Hythe, CT21

DESCRIPTION
This charming period cottage is nestled on Hythe's picturesque hillside within the desirable conservation area from where it commands some lovely views over the town and to the sea beyond. It forms part of a terrace of just three similarly attractive properties and is surrounded by other period of homes lending the immediate vicinity a great sense of charm and character.

The house offers light and airy accommodation with some particularly attractive original features throughout such as polished floor boards, joinery and fireplaces. The accommodation includes an entrance hall, sitting room, separate dining room, well fitted kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a first floor bathroom, recently refitted in a style sympathetic to the property. There may also be scope to extend into the side return and/or convert the attic should additional space be required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

There is a delightfully secluded cottage garden to the rear incorporating a courtyard accessed from the kitchen with the remainder of the garden sloping gently away from the house with a pathway meandering through it and resulting in an elevated terrace at the far end.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.

SITUATION
This pretty stretch of Hillside Street is situated within the desirable Conservation Area of the town, a short walk from the historic church and two roads back from the bustling High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi), doctors' surgeries, etc.

The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are only a little further away together with a variety of sports and leisure facilities, including 2 golf courses and 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 (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 just over 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)
