Front, Sturdy Close, Hythe, CT21

The property is situated in an exclusive cul-de-sac on level ground only minutes from the attractive unspoilt seafront and beach and the historic Royal Military Canal. The town centre with its busy High Street, 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose & Sainsbury) and range of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and doctors' surgeries is a short walk away. There is a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities available nearby, including the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre (which is virtually on the door step), cricket, lawn tennis, bowls, 2 golf courses and sailing clubs, etc., many of which are a short walk along the canal bank, accessed from a gate from the garden.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications as there is a main line railway station and access points for the M20 motorway (Junctions 11 and 12) only 3 and 4 miles away respectively, making it possible to reach Central London within about 1½ hours by both road and rail. The Channel Tunnel Terminal, with regular shuttle services to the Continent, is only just over three miles away and Ashford International Passenger Terminal with regular Eurostar services to Paris & Brussels (both 2 hours) is only 20 minutes by car. Folkestone West (approx 5 miles distant) offers a high speed service to London St Pancras with journey times of under an hour. The ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate).

This handsome detached house with its appealing double fronted façade stands on a particularly generous and secluded plot tucked into the corner of this highly desirable cul-de-sac. The property is immaculately presented throughout the bright and airy, free flowing accommodation. The wide entrance hall leads to 3 reception rooms, the triple aspect sitting room with door to the garden and double doors to the dining room, there is a separate family room/study, cloakroom and the kitchen which has been recently refitted with a high spec contemporary installation. Beyond the kitchen is a large utility room leading to the conservatory and the integral double garage with its electronically operated roller door. The first floor comprises four generous bedrooms accessed from the galleried landing, each with fitted cupboards, the master with a contemporary en-suite shower room and a smart bathroom.

A particularly attractive feature of the property are the gardens, the rear garden being walled, with their manicured lawns, beautifully planted, sculpted borders and generous seating areas. The rear garden backs directly onto the banks of the Royal Military Canal and has a side gate providing direct access to the tow path.

NB The property also has the added benefit of 22 solar panels and a separate tubular system providing hot water to the house. We are advised by the vendor that these collectively provide an annual tax free income of circa £2500 and are owned by the property.
