Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An individual and unique 4 bedroom detached house with versatile accommodation offering considerable scope for reconfiguration and updating to suit a purchasers requirements, set in a much sought after location with sea views to the west.

Situation - Encombe is situated almost midway between Folkestone and Hythe, set back from the seafront and enjoying south westerly sea views.

The historic and popular village of Sandgate has a number of independent and antique shops, restaurants and bars. Hythe and Folkestone are approximately 2 miles away both offering good shopping facilities. Hythe has a Waitrose and a Sainsbury's store and a number of small shops, whilst Folkestone provides further entertainment with its bustling Harbour Arm, the charming Old High Street and the Creative Quarter with delightful eateries and boutique style shops. The harbour area is undergoing a major regeneration programme that will have a positive impact on Folkestone in the future. Sporting facilities are available at Folkestone and also at the Hotel Imperial leisure centre in Hythe, together with rowing and sailing clubs, and good golf courses.

Communications - Communications are excellent with access to the continent by the Eurostar services from Ashford International, the channel tunnel terminal at Cheriton or via Dover harbour. The M20 motorway is a short drive away leading to London and the M25 orbital. The main line railway station at Folkestone West with its excellent parking facilities is a few minutes' drive away. From here there are services to Ashford, London Charing Cross and the high speed link to London St Pancras with a journey time of under an hour.
