Front, Turnpike Hill, Hythe, CT21

Turnpike Hill is a highly desirable residential area on the lower hillside, just over half-a-mile from the town centre and with bus routes to the surrounding areas. The town is well catered for with its 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsbury and Aldi), bustling high street with a diverse range of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, doctors' surgeries and dentists etc. The attractive and unspoilt seafront is approximately 20 minutes' walk and the Royal Military Canal, with pleasant towpath is nearby. There is a wide variety of sporting and leisure facilities in the area including the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre, cricket, bowling and lawn tennis clubs, 2 golf courses and sailing club. There are two good primary schools in the vicinity and a Performing Arts School for ages 11 - 18. There are boys' and girls' grammar schools in Folkestone which are served by a free bus service from Hythe.

Hythe is very conveniently located for easy access to the M20, Channel Tunnel Terminal, ferry port of Dover, etc.. Sandling main line railway station, approximately 2 miles away on the outskirts of Saltwood, offers regular commuter services to the City. (All distances are approximate). High Speed Link services to St Pancras are available at Folkestone West and Ashford International along with Eurostar services to Paris and Brussels at the latter.

Well situated towards the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac from where it commands a superb open aspect with lovely views over Hythe and of the sea, this substantial detached house is being offered for sale for the first time since it was built in the 1980's. It appears to have been well maintained over the years and recent improvements have included a replacement central heating boiler and the installation of new double glazed windows and door with timber effect upvc on the exterior in keeping with the original and a white upvc finish internally helping to maximise the light. It is fair to say that there is still room for purchasers to make their own mark on the house in order that it suits their own tastes and requirements.

The well proportioned accommodation includes a lovely entrance porch, generous entrance hall with double doors leading to a large sitting room with picture window to maximise the light and views, separate dining room with sliding door to the garden, kitchen/breakfast room leading to a utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor the galleried landing leads to four bedrooms, the master with en-suite bathroom, and a family bathroom.

To the front of the house the double width driveway provides parking for a number of vehicles and access to the integral double garage. To the rear there is a lovely garden arranged over two tiers and providing a delightfully secluded environment for alfresco entertaining.
