DESCRIPTION
An exceptional property in an exclusive location offering spacious accommodation with a pleasing flow and with each of the principal rooms positioned at the front house, designed to maximise sunlight and to enjoy the south westerly aspect with some wonderful views over the garden, of the town and to the sea.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, the principal room with en-suite shower room and an enclosed loggia from where superb views can be enjoyed, there is also a family bathroom, additional cloakroom, walk-in linen cupboard and ample storage. The loft space is capacious and should additional space be required, could be easily converted (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The house is positioned to the rear of its generous plot placing the majority of the garden at the front in order to make the most of the south westerly aspect. The garden is delightfully secluded and has been beautifully landscaped with a wide veranda spanning the width of the house, the perfect spot for alfresco dining and entertaining, extending to a shingled terrace. Beyond this are two further tiers, one with raised beds, the last tier being a generous expanse of lawn surrounded by mature shrubs and specimen trees. To the rear of the house is an attractive shaded courtyard. There is ample parking on the long driveway which is illuminated and entered via electronically operated gates and leading to an integral garage.

SITUATION
St Johns Road 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).
