Property description

This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise´s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property´s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £260,000, please contact Wards.

Set upon the outskirts of Hythe, you will find this pretty bungalow. From here, you can enjoy a stroll into town along the tree-lined banks of the Royal Military Canal where you can take in the sights and sounds of the local wildlife. Or if you stroll in the opposite direction, you will pass by the bottom of the zoo park where you might see the giraffes. Hythe itself has a lovely range of small shops and amenities, including restaurants and bistros, all easily accessible by bus if you do not drive.

The spacious lounge/diner has room for a dining table and it has a large window which lets in a lot of light during the day creating a bright and comfortable atmosphere. You can imagine relaxing in your favourite chair with a good book.

Although the current owners have made it their home, there is still scope for you to make your own mark when you move in with your choice of soft furnishings and, maybe, a new kitchen.

In addition to the two bedrooms, there is a modern bathroom with a shower over the bath, making getting ready in the mornings easier. There is also storage here where you can keep your toiletries out of sight.

The garden is a blank canvas, ready for you to plant the way you want from seedlings you have propagated in the greenhouse. After your 'travailles', you can sit in your garden furniture with a glass of wine, with The Roughs providing a lovely backdrop.

What the Owner says:
We bought this as our first home and have enjoyed living here. We have found it to be a lovely home in a quiet location.

We are only looking to sell owing to a change of circumstance and, as we appreciate moving can be quite stressful, we are offering our home with no onward chain.
