Full description

Situated in Park Road, which runs parallel to West Parade (a section of Hythe's seafront), on level ground to the south of the Royal Military canal, is this rather unique period property known as The Whim.

The weather-boarded Q-shaped single storey building is believed to have been built between 1874 and 1878 to the design of the then owner Henry Scott by a local builder, Mr Evernden.

The Whim now requires improvement/refurbishment, offering the successful buyer the opportunity to improve and decorate the building in their own taste and style, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable. Interested applicants are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority, the Shepway District Council. Tel: 01303 853278. Website:

The entrance hall leads to a central lanterned roundel with internal corridor and segmental rooms. There are many period features including tiled and timber flooring and panelled doors.

Off-road parking to front with gardens to front, sides and rear.

Main entrance hall, kitchen, breakfast room, living room, three bedrooms, store room, bathroom with W.C., circular hallway with central lanterned roundel, side hallway leading to side extension providing three further rooms, store and cloakroom/W.C.
