DESCRIPTION
The handsome well situated Edwardian House enjoys a wealth of original details throughout. The interior is approached via the impressive hallway with its geometric design encaustic tiled floor and includes an elegant sitting room and separate dining room with French doors opening to the sun room. Beyond this is the kitchen/breakfast room which leads through to the utility and cloakroom. The first floor comprises three very comfortable bedrooms (the principal room enjoying sea glimpses from the bay window) and a family bathroom. On the third floor there is a useful attic room.

To the rear of the house the attractive garden enjoys a westerly aspect, is well enclosed and laid to artificial grass for ease of maintenance and being delightfully secluded provides an appealing environment for alfresco dining. There is also a useful side access.

SITUATION
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.)
