Rear, Lookers Lane, Hythe, CT21

This substantial detached chalet bungalow is enviably situated on a particularly desirable cul-de-sac on the cusp of the village of Saltwood. Built by Charliers, a local company held in high regard, the property has been well maintained for the owner and still enjoys many of the original quality details from when it was built, not least of all the striking stone fireplace in the sitting room, internal joinery and beautiful parquet flooring.

The property is deceptively spacious offering comfortably proportioned accommodation which comprises a welcoming entrance hall leading to a generous sitting room opening onto a well considered conservatory extension which unites the property with its stunning gardens, a large dining room beyond which is the kitchen/breakfast room, rear hall and utility room. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor and a shower room. On the first floor the light and airy principal bedroom enjoys an adjacent cloakroom and an en-suite shower.

The property occupies a generous plot with a wide frontage to lookers lane, driveway providing off street parking and access to the garage which is larger in size than normal and incorporates a workshop area. The gardens are a delight, they have been thoughtfully planted to be reasonably easily maintained, to provide seclusion and also year round interest together with generous terraces, ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
