Sold STC - Tanners Hill, Hythe, CT21 - £547,000

Front, Tanners Hill, Hythe, CT21

Tanners Hill is a desirable location being within a reasonably short walk of the bustling High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys & Aldi), doctors' surgeries, etc. The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are only a little further and there are a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including 2 golf courses and the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre, cricket, squash and bowls clubs etc. Schools are also excellent with Hythe Bay C of E Primary, Saltwood C of E Primary, St Augustines Catholic Primary & Brockhill Park Performing Arts College all being accessible.

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 (5 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 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)

Built in the 1930's by Charliers, local developers held in high regard, Tile Barn is a distinctive property of character offering a wealth of original detail throughout and much charm and character. The property has been in the hands of the same family for many years and whilst appearing to have been generally well maintained it is fair to say that it would now benefit from some general updating but is considered well worthy of any expenditure required. There is also considerable scope to extend should additional accommodation be required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The comfortably proportioned accommodation comprises a generous sitting room with open fire and casement doors opening to the conservatory which overlooks the garden. This is open plan to the kitchen and beyond this is a utility area with doors to a shower room and the dining room which has polished floor boards. The first floor comprises two large bedrooms and a split level bathroom and there are two further bedrooms on the second floor. Sea views can be enjoyed from most of the rear facing rooms.

The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property being delightfully secluded and incorporating some wonderful mature plants. Views towards the sea can also be enjoyed from the terrace. There is a driveway to the front providing parking for two vehicles.
