Seabrook Road, Hythe, CT21 - £795,000

Hidden house is aptly named being set well back and being barely visible from the road. Believed to have been built in the 1830's as a coach house, the property has been in the ownership of the same family for many years and whilst it is fair to say that it does now require refurbishment, it also presents an exciting opportunity for prospective purchasers to create an exceptional home which is tailored to suit their own tastes and requirements. It is considered well worthy of any expenditure required and has been priced accordingly. The property occupies a generous plot of approximately one third of an acre and sits to the back of the land from where it enjoys a beautiful open vista to the sea over the pretty gardens which are tiered gently downwards away from the house. These in themselves present a further opportunity offering ample space for the construction of an additional dwelling to provide ancillary accommodation to the main house (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

This enchanting property exudes charm and character with a wealth of original details throughout the comfortably proportioned accommodation which comprises an entrance vestibule leading to the dining hall beyond which is the sitting room to the right and to the left the inner hall which leads to a bathroom and the kitchen beyond which is the utility room and store room. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all enjoying sea views and one with an en-suite bathroom. Linked to the house by a sun room is the guest accommodation with a further sitting room, cloakroom and double bedroom with en-suite shower room.

The house has two vehicular access points, one with double gates (ready to be electrified) from Seabrook Road which open to a generous driveway leading to a large garage, the second from a private driveway over which we understand the house has a shared right of access. There is a double width driveway here and a further gated driveway beyond. The gardens are delightfully secluded with a wealth of mature planting and lovely spots to relax and enjoy an alfresco lifestyle.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
