Hart Hill, Hythe


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Originally constructed around 1850 as a classic 'two up, two down' country dwelling, this unique home has been thoughtfully extended and improved to retain plenty of character while also offering an appealing, modern twist. The property is sat on a generous plot measuring over 1/4 of an acre and boasts excellent seclusion along with far-reaching views across surrounding countryside and woodland. Internally, the well-presented accommodation has been designed to make the most of the pleasing outlook with a master bedroom enjoying a large picture window and two balconies, as well as the kitchen/dining room opening onto the garden. In addition to this, there is a lounge, a conservatory, a dining room, two further double bedrooms, a traditional bathroom, a utility room and a ground floor WC. Outside, the generous plot 'wraps around' the property and benefits from plenty of gated parking, a detached double garage and an office/guest bedroom with its own shower room. This exceptional property truly must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

LOCATION The property is positioned on a country lane, on the outskirts of the historic market town of Hythe and just a short walk from the waterfront, meaning all of the amenities within the village are in easy reach. This includes various shops, restaurants and pubs (the Travellers Rest is next door) as well as travel links to surrounding areas including a passenger ferry service from Hythe Pier to Southampton. In neighbouring Dibden you can find a supermarket, leisure centre and a golf course. The New Forest National Park is just a short drive away meaning many outside interests can be pursued.
