Front, Park Road, Hythe, CT21

The Whim is a unique and enchanting Grade II Listed single storey dwelling in the heart of "the golden triangle", moments from the beach and a short stroll from the High Street. The property has been the subject of an extensive programme of repair and refurbishment in recent years (including the addition of a detached annexe which has consent for a glazed link to be constructed in order to unite it with the main property) which has seen the restoration of this gem almost completed. Intending purchasers will have the opportunity to complete the project to their own tastes and requirements.

The property exudes charm and character throughout and incorporates versatile accommodation including an entrance hall opening to the central circular dining hall which is set beneath a glazed atrium roof light flooding the space with natural light. The accommodation radiates from here and includes a sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, three bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower room) and a bathroom. The annexe comprises a kitchen/dining room, sitting room, bedroom and shower room.

The Whim occupies a generous plot with a wide frontage to Park Road where it benefits from a driveway providing off street parking. The gardens, which have been landscaped in part, surround the property to all sides.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.

Park Road is a particularly sought after residential location, on level ground, to the south of the Royal Military Canal, moments from the seafront and a short, level walk from the busy High Street with its range of independent shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. The town also benefits from having 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Aldi and Sainsburys). There is a selection of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including tennis, water sports, cricket, bowls and squash clubs etc. as well as The Hotel Imperial Leisure Complex and two golf courses. The property is also in the catchment area for Hythe Bay Primary School and only a short walk from it. The larger town of Folkestone is 5 miles and the Cathedral City of Canterbury 15 miles.

The area is convenient for connections to London and the Continent with the M20 motorway (Junction 11) 2½ miles distant, the Channel Tunnel Terminal 3 miles and a mainline railway station at Saltwood just over 2 miles away. High Speed trains to London St Pancras are available from both Ashford (10 miles) and Folkestone (Central and West). (All distances are approximate).
