Sold STC - Oak Walk, Hythe, CT21 - £459,000

Front, Oak Walk, Hythe, CT21

Forming part of the desirable conservation area, Oak Walk is an idyllic spot on Hythe's picturesque lower hillside. It runs below St Leonards Church and also leads on to Church Hill, lined with hollyhocks through the summer and which leads straight down the hill to the town centre. Church Hill leads onto "Great Conduit Street" (Hythe's shortest road) and directly into the bustling High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi), doctors' surgeries, etc.

The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are a short walk away together with a variety of sports and leisure facilities, including 2 golf courses, swimming pool, cricket, squash, bowls and lawn tennis clubs together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 2 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 (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 just over 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)

Beautifully positioned on the south western corner of the church yard of Hythe's historic St Leonards Church, in the very heart of the conservation area, this enchanting detached house is being offered for sale on the open market for the first time in over fifty years.

The property has been improved by the current owners. This much loved family home offers generally well presented accommodation which is of particularly comfortable proportions and is flooded with light from the large windows which principally face south and west. There are also some glorious views from many of the rooms over the town and of the sea and also of the church.

The accommodation includes a welcoming entrance hall with polished timber flooring which extends through the majority of the ground floor, two comfortable reception rooms, the sitting room with an open fire, a kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom. On the first floor the attractive landing leads to the master bedroom with a south facing balcony, two further bedrooms and a bathroom. The property enjoys a charming walled courtyard garden from where views of the sea can also be enjoyed and there is also the unusual advantage of an attached garage.
