Sold STC - Seaton Avenue, Hythe, CT21 - £895,000

Rear, Seaton Avenue, Hythe, CT21

DESCRIPTION
Having been in the ownership of the same family for decades, it is fair to say that this substantial detached house would now benefit from general updating and improvement. However, with considerable scope to extend, it presents an exciting opportunity for any intending purchaser to create a home tailored to suit their own tastes and requirements and create a dwelling befitting of the exceptional plot upon which it stands. The property also benefits from Solar Panels providing electricity and hot water.

The plot totals approximately 0.5 of an acre with a frontage of around 100 feet to Seaton Avenue and an overall depth in the region of 220 feet. The final third of the garden sits behind a ragstone wall and was formerly used as a vegetable garden. There is some considerable scope to redevelop this area, of course this would be subject to obtaining all necessary consents and approvals, with an additional dwelling, an increasingly rare opportunity in this desirable location.

The property currently offers some 2384 square feet of accommodation including three reception rooms, kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is an attached garage, ample parking and delightful gardens which incorporate some wonderful specimen shrubs and trees creating a delightful and unusually secluded setting.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
