Lamberton House is an impressive detached property a generous plot in a prime, elevated position from where it commands an extraordinary south westerly panorama with breath taking views over Hythe, of the sea and around Hythe Bay to Dungeness. In the opposite direction country views can be enjoyed with Saltwood Castle in the distance.
The property appears to have been well maintained, in fact the outside has recently been redecorated however, it is fair to say that whilst perfectly comfortable, internally the house would now benefit from some general updating and improvement but, with over 2900 square feet of versatile accommodation, has the potential to provide an exceptional home and is considered well worthy of any expenditure required. The accommodation is designed to maximise the views with the large open plan living space (which opens to a wraparound balcony), kitchen, principal bedroom, further bedroom, bathroom and anti room/study on the first floor. There are two further bedrooms on the ground floor, one with en-suite bathroom, and a bathroom. There is also a wonderfully equipped games room. Beyond this is the heated swimming pool, enclosed by a glazed structure. The manageable garden is delightfully secluded and there is more space at the front of the house where the long driveway provides ample parking and access to the integral double garage.
For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
This substantial property occupies a prime position on Sene Park, an exclusive location on the hillside, within reasonable walking distance of Hythe's charming town centre with its busting High Street, with independent boutique shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
