It's easy to fall in love with the life that being here affords, country walks, seaside and an historic town all lure you in.
Think of Hythe and you think of walks along the Royal Military Canal, strolling the seafront promenade past the sailing club or wandering through quaint streets, ambling up the hillside to St Leonards Church. Hythe has a charm and a character that is very special.
One of the original famous Cinque Ports, it has a long and colourful history, today a delightful place to live and very much the focus for people who want a lovely lifestyle.
The often undiscovered delight of Hythe is a home like this. On the edge of the town, Spanton Crescent sits above Turnpike Hill, the turning you take from London Road, and consequently has a huge amount to offer. There is a delightful curve of coastline that stretches around Romney Bay to Dungeness in the distance, it's a scene you'll never tire of. From here it is so easy to get to the M20 at junction 11, the train at Westenhanger and of course you can head to Ashford International Station or the Eurotunnel at Folkestone. Ferrys at Dover are so easy to reach too, France is a simple and exciting day trip, for many it becomes a regular occurrence and an alternative choice for a spot of lunch.
The Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway is just down the road, this famous line runs all the way to Dungeness and the steam engines are a wondrous sight.
For us that is icing on a wonderful cake because this home is really about family and enjoying life with them as they grow up.
The accommodation has been extended giving the house nicely balanced space. The six bedrooms are all respectable sizes, the master suite stands out of course but, of the other rooms, there is not likely to be too much 'bedroom envy' amongst the kids as each will have space and a differing aspect to enjoy.
The great thing is that downstairs complements the upstairs, there is space here to spread out and so a full home is not going to be a squeeze.
The kitchen, so important for all of us, is a room that seems to stretch away into the distance as you first step in. There's lots of work space, storage and light, this is helped by the breakfast area with its French doors and side door and panels, it's much more than a breakfast area as you will find yourselves sat here chatting at various points of the day.
There's a dining room for more formal occasions, right beside the kitchen, it is exactly where it needs to be and again, French doors open onto the rear garden making this a great place to entertain friends and carry on festivities outdoors.
The sitting room has an open fireplace to add that homely feel and provide a focal point.
For a larger family, parking is no problem, one of the integral garages was repurposed for a home-based business and currently is used as a spacious laundry room and storage area. You may keep it the same or open it back up to allow a car in, either way, there is space to park on the drive and garden that could be appropriated for more vehicles if needed.
The rear garden is easy to enjoy, a patio runs the width of the house and a raised lawn and shrubs add colour and interest. As added peace of mind, it is good to know that a new gas boiler was installed at the beginning of May 2019.
With Brockhill Park just around the corner, it is a couple of minutes at most from the house and a popular dog walk for the owner, beautiful scenery winds up to the wooded lake area and eventually to a cafe and play area. Along the way super views open up.
Depending upon the route you take into the park you'll walk past St Augustines Catholic Primary School and Brockhill Park Performing Arts College, two of the fabulous schooling options in the area.
Hythe is a town we love, if you know it already you'll understand why. If you don't know Hythe then we'll enjoy helping you discover it and this superb home.
