This handsome property, understood to have been built by Charliers, local builders held in high regard, in the 1930s, occupies a generous plot and is situated in an exclusive residential location from where it commands stunning south-westerly views to the sea and around the bay to Dungeness in the distance. The house was purpose-built for the Army as the residence for the Commander of the Small Arms School in Hythe, it was originally named Battlemore.
The property has been in the ownership of the same family for some fifty years and, whilst appearing to have been generally well maintained, it is fair to say that this much loved family home would now benefit from general updating and improvement. With around 2400 square feet of accommodation, it offers the potential to provide a very comfortable home and is considered well worthy of any expenditure required. There is also scope to extend subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained.
The well-proportioned accommodation comprises a welcoming reception hall, sitting room, dining room, sun room, kitchen, utility room and domestic offices. On the first floor there are six bedrooms, one with an adjoining dressing room, a bathroom and separate WC. The house is surrounded by gardens to the front side and rear, there is ample parking and an integral garage.
For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
St Johns Road is viewed as being one of Hythe's most desirable locations being high enough up the hill to benefit from lovely views over the town and to sea, yet remaining within reasonable walking distance of the vibrant High Street, with its range of interesting shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, together with 4 supermarkets (including Waitrose, Sainsbury & Aldi), doctors' surgeries, etc. The attractive, unspoilt seafront and picturesque Royal Military Canal are only a little further and there are a variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity, including 2 golf courses and the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre, cricket, squash and bowls clubs etc. Schools are also excellent with Hythe Bay C of E Primary, Saltwood C of E Primary, St Augustine's Catholic Primary & Brockhill Park Performing Arts College all being accessible together with boys and girls Grammar Schools in Folkestone.
The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications with a main line railway station in Saltwood (Sandling - 1.5 miles) and access to the M20 (Junction 11 - 2.3 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 around 3 miles away and the ferry port of Dover is 12 miles away. (All distances are approximate).
