Sold STC - St Leonards Road, Hythe, CT21 - £519,950

Front, St Leonards Road, Hythe, CT21

St Leonards Road is rightly considered as one of Hythe's prime locations, very close to the prestigious Fisherman's Beach development and moments from the unspoilt seafront of this ancient Cinque Ports Town, with its long stretches of shingle beaches. The house is also on a level approach to the Royal Military Canal and to the nearby bustling High Street which enjoys a variety of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants. In addition there are 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsbury and Aldi). There is also a selection of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity including tennis, bowls, cricket, squash and sailing clubs as well as other water sports facilities. The larger town of Folkestone is less than 5 miles and the Cathedral City of Canterbury is approximately 17 miles distant.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a mainline railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 3 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 (4.2 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 4 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 13 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)

This imposing detached family house offers exceptionally comfortable, bright and airy accommodation which is attractively presented throughout in a smart contemporary style. There is useful entrance porch, ideal for depositing coats and shoes after a walk along the seafront, leading to a welcoming reception with engineered oak flooring which extends throughout the majority of the ground floor. Beyond this is the spacious sitting room with cosy wood burning stove and double doors leading to the dining room which is partially set beneath a Velux roof-light which floods the area with light. The dining room leads to the attractively fitted kitchen/breakfast room with double doors opening to the garden and a door returning to the entrance hall. The first floor comprises four generous bedrooms, two with en-suites and a family bathroom.

The courtyard garden to the rear of the house has been designed with ease of maintenance in mind and is of split level design providing a delightful environment for alfresco entertaining. The sun tracks round to the front of the house in the evenings where the current owner enjoys the late summer sun. There is parking and an integral garage (currently divided).
