Photo 2, Sturdy Close, Hythe, CT21

This handsome double fronted neo Georgian detached house occupies a generous corner plot on this ever sought after cul-de-sac. The property has been in the ownership of the same family for many years now and whilst it appears clean, tidy and perfectly habitable it is fair to say that it does now require a programme of refurbishment but presents an exciting opportunity for intending purchasers to tailor the property to suit their own tastes and requirements. It is considered well worthy of any expenditure required and is priced to reflect this.

The accommodation is of particularly comfortable proportions and totals in the region of 2129 square feet. This includes a generous reception hall leading to the triple aspect sitting room, dining room, family room/study, kitchen breakfast room with large adjoining utility room. On the first floor the galleried landing leads to four very comfortable bedrooms, three with built in wardrobes, the master with an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom.

Outside there is a wide frontage to Sturdy Close and a generous driveway accessing the attached double garage and providing parking for a number of vehicles. To the rear the garden enjoys a sunny south easterly aspect and seclusion.

For room sizes please see Floorplan.

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.

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.
