Sold STC - Saxon Close, Hythe, CT21 - £525,000

Front, Saxon Close, Hythe, CT21

DESCRIPTION
Rarely available and incredibly sought after, a detached house situated in a highly desirable cul-de-sac, on level ground within walking distance of Hythe's High Street and backing directly on to the Royal Military Canal and with views across the golf course to the sea from the first floor. Having been a comfortable home it is fair to say that it would now benefit from some general improvement but is considered well worthy of any expenditure required.

The accommodation comprises a welcoming entrance hall, a sitting room with sliding doors to the south facing garden, a separate dining room, fitted kitchen, utility room and cloakroom. The first floor incorporates four bedrooms, the principal room having an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. The property benefits from off street parking on the block paved driveway before the garage. The garden to the front of the property has been designed for ease of maintenance and a side gate gives access to the delightfully secluded south facing rear garden.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.

SITUATION
The property is situated in an exclusive cul-de-sac on level ground within reasonable walking distance of the attractive unspoilt seafront and beach and the historic Royal Military Canal. The town centre with its busy High Street, 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose & Sainsbury) and range of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and doctors' surgeries is also nearby. There is a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities available nearby, including the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre (which is virtually "on the door step"), cricket, lawn tennis, bowls, 2 golf courses and sailing clubs, etc., many of which are a short walk along the canal bank.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications as there is a main line railway station and access points for the M20 motorway (Junctions 11 and 12) only 3 and 4 miles away respectively, making it possible to reach Central London within about 1½ hours by both road and rail. The Channel Tunnel Terminal, with regular shuttle services to the Continent, is only just over three miles away and Ashford International Passenger Terminal with regular Eurostar services to Paris & Brussels (both 2 hours) is only 20 minutes by car. Folkestone West (approx 5 miles distant) offers a high speed service to London St Pancras with journey times of under an hour. The ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate).
