DESCRIPTION
'Overchurch' is an enchanting period house, enviably positioned on the pretty hillside, above Hythe's historic St Leonards Church. The property commands magnificent views over the town, of the sea and around the bay.

The house is approached via a flight of steps from North Road leading to a wide south facing terrace, the perfect vantage point from where to enjoy the views and appreciate the perfectly symmetrical and attractively detailed, double fronted facade. The accommodation is light and airy, of comfortable proportions and is focused to the south to maximise the views. There may also be the potential to extend to the rear should additional space be required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained). Currently there is a sitting room, dining room which leads to the well fitted kitchen, rear lobby and utility/cloakroom. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, a shower room and a separate w.c. There are a wealth of original features throughout including joinery and some very pretty fireplaces. To the rear of the house the garden slopes upwards away from the property and the superb views of the sea can also be enjoyed from here too, not least of all from the recently constructed summer house at the top of the garden.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
