A handsome and impressive, traditionally-styled detached residence, set within a generous and secluded corner plot of approximately 0.33 acres, backing onto woodland and situated in a prestigious private road, just half a mile from Hythe beach.
Woodland House was built in 1999 to an exceptionally high standard, and offers almost 3200 sq. ft of beautifully presented accommodation, set over three floors. Despite the propertyÂs relatively recent age, Woodland House commands a sense of character and a generosity of proportion far more in keeping with a grand, period home, complemented by features such as the fine architectural detailing on its tile hung, double fronted faÃ§ade.
The property is entered via a UPVC double glazed front door, which opens into an impressive reception hall, with a cloakroom, oak flooring and an elegant oak staircase, overlooked by a galleried landing on the first floor.
To the right of the entrance hall, there is a splendid dual aspect sitting room, with an exposed brick chimney breast with a multi-fuel stove. To the left of the reception hall, there is a large, dual aspect study, which enjoys pleasant views over and direct access to the gardens.
To the rear of the property, there is a spectacular kitchen/breakfast room, with wood effect flooring and double glazed French doors to the rear garden. The kitchen was completely refitted in 2019 with an extensive range of high specification wall and floor units, set around striking quartz work surfaces, a range of integrated appliances and a central island and breakfast bar. The kitchen is further complemented by a useful utility room additional units, appliances and quartz work surfaces, along with a door to the side garden.
The extensive ground floor accommodation is completed by a spacious dining room adjacent to the kitchen and a dual aspect family room which also enjoys direct access to the gardens.
On the first floor, a vast, galleried landing leads to five double bedrooms, each with built-in double wardrobes and fine views, and a well appointed family bathroom. The main bedroom is a superb double room, with a walk-in wardrobe, a, en-suite bathroom and a bay window with sea views.
A further staircase rises from the first floor, to a 26ft games room on the second floor, which could easily serve as a cinema room, gym or a sixth bedroom, if required.
Woodland House is set within a generous corner plot of approximately a third of an acre. A block paved driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a detached double garage. This has two, up and over doors, power, lighting and useful eaves storage.
The gardens wrap around the rear and both sides of the house and are mainly laid to lawn, with mature flower and shrub borders and a flagstone patio which also extends across the entire width and both sides of the house. There are several outbuildings, including a summer house, a shed and a covered gazebo, ideal for a hot tub.
The plot continues to the rear into a steep, wooded bank which provides a natural habitat for wildlife as well as a wonderful backdrop for this incredible family home.
Woodland House is situated just off an unmade road, within half a mile of the beach and within easy reach of the bustling High Street and the lovely Military Canal in Hythe, with its range of independent shops and retailers, along with more familiar chain stores, public houses and cafes.
