Treetops is a substantial detached house which we understand to have been built in the mid 1960's and was later extended to enhance the already comfortably proportioned accommodation. The house, which has been extensively improved by the current owners in recent times, now enjoys a high standard of presentation throughout and is flooded with light from the large picture windows virtually all of which offer attractive views over Hythe's pretty hillside, to St Leonards Church in the distance and with glimpses of the sea. The spacious, free flowing accommodation comprises a dining hall, dual aspect sitting room opening onto the garden, generous, smartly fitted kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the garden and leading to a sun room and which provides access to the integral garage. There is also a utility room and cloakroom. The first floor comprises four double bedrooms, the master with en-suite shower room, and a smart family bathroom. To the front of the house there is a double width driveway providing off street parking and access to the integral garage. To the rear of the house the sunny garden is relatively level and provides a delightful environment in which to relax and entertain alfresco.
