Cliff Road, Hythe, CT21 - £1,000,000


Accessed via a long private driveway, this substantial detached house is enviably situated on one of the area's finest plots within an exclusive private road. It sits above Cliff Road itself in an elevated position, on relatively level land from where the house commands a breath taking southerly panorama over Hythe with views to the east over Sene Valley Golf Course and to the coast of France on a fine day and to the west, around the bay to Dungeness.

The property has been in the ownership of the same family for many years and now requires extensive renovation. It does however offer considerable scope to extend the existing accommodation which totals in the region of 1857 sq ft (plus loft space) (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained) and the potential to provide an exceptional home in an unrivalled location and setting.

The owner has secured a valuable planning approval to redevelop the site in its entirety with an unique state of the art, sustainable eco-mansion totalling in the region of 6450 sq ft. The design is sensational and incorporates all aspects of modern life one would expect from a property of this calibre with accommodation over three floors designed to maximise the views from virtually every room. This is a truly exceptional opportunity for anyone seeking to undertake a very special project and create a home worthy of this exceptional setting. For those not requiring such a large property, having already secured planning approval for a house of this scale, it ought to be perfectly feasible to scale down the plans within the proposed envelope (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).
