Tenure: Freehold

This unique property is situated in an exclusive location on Hillcrest Road from where a pedestrian walkway (Church Hill) leads down to North Road and in turn, the town centre. It is also a relatively level walk from the centre of Saltwood with its pretty village green, local shop, restaurant, pub, historic church and castle. There are two excellent primary schools within only a short walk and Brockhill Performing Arts College is only a little further. There are two highly regarded Grammar Schools in Folkestone with a regular bus service providing access to both.

Hythe enjoys a busy High Street, 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsbury & Aldi) and range of independent shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. There is a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including sailing, tennis, bowls, cricket etc. together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre and two golf courses. Commuting links are excellent with the motorway network (M20 Junction 11) 3 miles distant, main line railway station at Sandling 2 miles, the Channel Tunnel Terminal 4 miles, the ferry port of Dover 10 miles and Ashford International Passenger Station 12 miles. The High Speed Link is available from both Folkestone (5 miles) and Ashford (12 miles) with journey times to St Pancras of around 53 minutes and 38 minutes respectively (all times and distances are approximate).

Upper Fold House is an enchanting Edwardian villa which has retained a wealth of original detail including fireplaces, joinery and architectural mouldings. The house provides charm and character in abundance throughout the light & airy accommodation which includes a pretty reception hall leading to the interconnecting drawing room & sitting room each with an open fireplace and divided by folding panelled doors, a dining room, study, large kitchen (with some original cabinetry) which leads to a breakfast room, utility room, pantry and cloakroom. The first floor comprises four double bedrooms - one leading to a balcony, a bathroom and a separate w.c. There is plenty of scope to create en-suite facilities should they be required.

Outside there is an expanse of garden to the front with the potential to create a carriage driveway, generous driveway to the side of the house leading to the detached garage which is of double size but with just a single door which is currently sealed but could easily be reinstated - it is currently utilised as a workshop/store. There is a pretty garden at the rear of the house with a large terrace for alfresco entertaining.

NB An adjoining plot of land may also be available to be purchased in conjunction with the purchase of the principal property. This plot of land benefits from approved plans for the erection of a detached dwelling. Price and terms to be agreed.
