Property Details


Sold STC - St Leonards Road, Hythe, CT21 - £375,000

Front, St Leonards Road, Hythe, CT21

This handsome semi detached period house enjoys well proportioned accommodation arranged over three floors with much original detail retained throughout. This includes an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, breakfast room leading to the kitchen, three double bedrooms and a large bathroom. There is also a long garden to the rear which enjoys a westerly aspect and side access.

The property has benefited from a number of improvements including a replacement roof and windows in recent years amongst others. It is fair to say that some further improvement is required but given the nature of the property and its prime location, it is considered well worthy of any additional expenditure required.

For room sizes refer to the floor plan.

St Leonards Road is 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 unspoilt 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. Hythe Bay Primary School is also very accessible. The larger town of Folkestone is around 5 miles and the Cathedral City of Canterbury is approximately 17 miles distant.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line 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.)
