Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
This truly stunning detached bungalow is set within a highly desirable location on the outskirts of Hythe and simply must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Internally, the property has been subject to an extensive renovation project over recent years, featuring many high-spec features throughout - all these impressive features are noted within a section at the end of the details. The accommodation provides excellent space for entertaining with a stunning, contemporary kitchen/dining room and a dual-aspect lounge with wood burning stove - both of these rooms opening onto the sizeable orangery.

Outside of the property, you will find a block-paved driveway providing off-road parking for various vehicles, a double garage and a thoughtfully landscaped rear garden.
