Property Details


Sold STC - Tanners Hill Gardens, Hythe, CT21 - £369,950

Front, Tanners Hill Gardens, Hythe, CT21

This attractive semi-detached house enjoys a delightful situation with views over the valley to the front and backing directly onto Eaton Lands where there is also vehicular access leading to the detached garage (dilapidated) and area of parking. The property has been in the ownership of the same family for around 96 years and it is fair to say, now requires general updating and improvement. There is also considerable scope to extend to the rear (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained) and the potential to create an exceptionally comfortable family home.

The current accommodation comprises an entrance hall, sitting/dining room, galley kitchen, utility, three bedrooms and a shower room. A particularly attractive aspect of the property is its garden which enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect and direct access on Eaton Lands, a most attractive expanse of open grassland and flower meadows.

For room sizes refer to the floor plan.

Tanners Hill Gardens is a particularly desirable location which backs directly onto and accesses Eaton Lands, within walking distance of the centre of Saltwood village, with its pretty village green, local shop, restaurant, pub, historic church and castle. There are two excellent primary schools also within a short walk and Brockhill Performing Arts College is only a little further on. There are two highly regarded Grammar Schools in Folkestone with a regular bus service providing access to both. Hythe town centre, with its busy High Street offering a range of independent shops and restaurants is also nearby. There are also 4 supermarkets in the town (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi). There is a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including sailing, tennis, bowls, etc. together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre and two golf courses. There are many footpaths and bridleways in the vicinity - ideal for horse riding or dog-walking, along with Brockhill Country Park, where there is a play area and other organised outdoor activities. Directly at the end of the garden there is a large expanse of open ground known as Eaton Lands which comprises a playing field, wild flower meadow, allotments and a wooded valley.
