SITUATED in an exclusive courtyard development in a rural setting yet only five minutes away by car from the bustling Cinque Port town of Hythe with its good selection of independent shops and restaurants and supermarkets including Waitrose and Sainsbury's stores, as well as doctors' and dentists' surgeries and public library. Primary schooling is located in Hythe and the village of Saltwood, with secondary schooling being available in Saltwood and both girls' and boys' grammar schools in nearby Folkestone. The property is also within easy reach of the Channel Tunnel terminal, M20 Motorway and main line railway stations. High speed rail services are available from Folkestone West station being approximately 15 minutes by car and offering regular fast services to London, St. Pancras in approximately 50 minutes. The local area also offers a selection of golf courses including the Hythe Imperial, Sene Park and Etchinghill. The Cathedral City of Canterbury with its cultural facilities including the cathedral and Marlow theatre is also within driving distance.

A rare opportunity to acquire a truly stunning barn conversion residence forming part of an exclusive courtyard development in a pleasant rural setting. Originally being the barn and stable of the impressive nearby farmhouse, this unique home is now one of a handful of individual properties sharing communal gardens to the front while enjoying private gardens to the rear. The property boasts many impressive features internally, not least the dining hall with its breath-taking double height vaulted ceiling with exposed roof timbers, but also the large galleried landing above enjoying views of the North Downs to the rear. There are two reception rooms, one being open plan to the dining hall, a modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room and separate utility room, and a cloakroom to the ground floor, while upstairs the master bedroom enjoys a view of the communal gardens as well as an en suite bathroom. Two further bedrooms and a shower room complete the accommodation on offer. The property also benefits from an attractive, good sized and well-tended private garden, as well as a double garage accessed from the communal gardens via a brick-built archway. Available with no onward chain, an early viewing of this most individual property comes highly recommended.
