Photo 9, Marine Parade, Hythe, CT21

In a prime location, situated directly on the unspoilt and pedestrianised seafront of this ancient Cinque Ports Town, with its long stretches of shingle beaches and on a level approach to the Royal Military Canal. Beyond this is the bustling High Street which enjoys a variety of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants. In addition, the town is well served by 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsbury and Aldi). There is also a selection of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity including tennis, bowls, cricket, squash and sailing clubs as well as water sports facilities. The larger town of Folkestone is around 5 miles and the Cathedral City of Canterbury is approximately 18 miles distant.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a mainline railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 3 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 (4 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 only 4 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 13 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)

This first and second floor duplex flat is well situated in a prime beachfront location on Hythe's sought after Marine Parade. Having been in the hands of the previous owner for many years it is fair to say that the property now requires general updating and improvement but is considered well worthy of the expenditure required. Offering particularly comfortable accommodation, the flat offers the potential to create an exceptionally comfortable home with views of the sea from the principal rooms.

The accommodation includes an entrance hall, dual aspect sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on the first floor with the master bedroom and en-suite cloakroom on the top floor. To the front of the building is a pleasant communal garden offering direct access to and views over the promenade with the beach and sea beyond.
