Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Hillside Street is situated within the desirable Conservation Area of the town, two roads back from the bustling High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi), doctors' surgeries, etc. The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are a short walk away together with a variety of sports and leisure facilities, including 2 golf courses, swimming pool, cricket, squash, bowls and lawn tennis clubs together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 2 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 just over 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate.)

This imposing period house is nestled on Hythe's picturesque hillside from where it commands a magnificent southerly vista over the town, of the sea and around the bay. The accommodation has been thoughtfully arranged with the majority of the rooms facing south and benefitting from the stunning views.

Whilst appearing to be in a reasonable state of repair it is fair to say that the property has been neglected in recent years and would now benefit from general updating and improvement. However, having been priced to reflect the works required it presents an opportunity to create an enchanting family home, full of charm and character and is considered well worthy of the expenditure required.

The spacious accommodation, which retains a wealth of original features, comprises an elegant entrance hall, a sitting room, dining room with archway leading to the kitchen, family room, study area and cloakroom on the ground floor. The first floor includes 3 double bedrooms, one with en-suite dressing room (which lends itself to becoming an en-suite bathroom) and a family bathroom. There is a fourth double bedroom on the second floor with an en-suite bathroom. The garden to the rear of the property could be particularly attractive and incorporates a large south facing terrace with views of the sea and two expanses of lawn. There is parking on the driveway to the side of the house and an attached single garage.
