Front, North Road West, Hythe, CT21

North Road West is viewed as being one of Hythe's most desirable locations being high enough up the hill to benefit from lovely views over the town and to sea, yet remaining within reasonable walking distance of the vibrant High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys & Aldi), doctors' surgeries, etc. The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are only a little further and there are a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including 2 golf courses and the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre, cricket, squash and bowls clubs etc. Schools are also excellent with Hythe Bay C of E Primary, Saltwood C of E Primary, St Augustines Catholic Primary & Brockhill Park Performing arts College all being accessible together with boys and girls Grammar Schools in Folkestone.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 1.5 miles) and access to the M20 (Junction 11 - 2.3 miles). The High Speed Link rail service to Stratford and St Pancras is available from Folkestone West (5 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 around 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate).

This handsome property, understood to have been built by Charliers, local builders held in high regard, in the 1930's is situated in an exclusive residential location from where it commands stunning south westerly views to the sea and around the bay to Dungeness in the distance. The house offers beautifully presented accommodation of particularly generous proportions which totals approximately 3491 square feet which comprises a welcoming entrance hall, drawing room, family room, dining room with a wonderful gothic arch door opening to the garden, study, smartly fitted kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom. The first floor galleried landing leads to four bedrooms (the master with en-suite shower room) and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms leads to an inner hall with a secondary staircase leading down to the dining room and accessing two further rooms and a shower room. This area has the potential to create self contained living quarters for a dependant relative or indeed a nanny, should this be required. The second floor was created from a most successful attic conversion and provides an additional bedroom and bathroom. The house stands in generous gardens which have been beautifully planted for the owners to provide a tranquil and secluded environment in which to dine and relax alfresco. There is also ample parking on the wide driveway which leads to the two adjoining garages.
