Front, North Road West, Hythe, CT21

This delightful detached residence, considered to be one of the most handsome in Hythe, believed to have been built by Charliers, local builders who have long been held in high regard, in the style of a Kent Yeoman's house in the 1930s, with a heavy "Arts & Crafts" influence. The property occupies a large, elevated, corner plot in a particularly desirable location, commanding a wonderful south westerly vista from the first floor over Hythe, to the English Channel and around the bay to Dungeness.

The wide, front elevation is rendered and colour-washed, internal woodwork is solid oak, including wall panelling, floors, etc. and there is an attractive inglenook-style brick fireplace to the drawing room as well as numerous other features, all creating a charming cottage-style ambience. The accommodation comprises a warm and welcoming entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, breakfast room which is open plan to the well fitted kitchen, study, utility room and cloakroom. The first floor incorporates five bedrooms, the principal bedroom with an en-suite shower room and balcony, bathroom, shower room and separate w.c.

The mature gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property having been beautifully planted, designed for year round interest, to provide seclusion and to incorporate an assortment of seating areas, ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining. There is also a generous herringbone paved driveway providing parking for a number of vehicles and access to the substantial detached garage and workshop.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.

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 the 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, Sainsbury & 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 Augustine's 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).
