Pelican House is a handsome unlisted period town house dating from 1847. Forming part of a small terrace facing directly on to the beach, the house offers over 2,000 sq ft of light-filled accommodation, together with a self-contained lower ground floor apartment.

Pelican House has been a much loved family home for a number of generations and has enabled them to enjoy seaside life to the full. Recent improvements have included the installation of a new kitchen. The property has wonderful period features including large sash windows, high ceilings with fine cornicing and some original fireplaces. This is a wonderfully relaxed home with space for informal dining and entertaining, and large enough to fill with children after a day on the beach

The main entrance is to the rear and is reached from a short flight of steps through a porch which opens into a spacious kitchen with a range of contemporary wall and base units, quartz worktops, space for a table for more informal meals. A door from the inner staircase hall leads to the lovely dining room filled with light from the full-height windows, a feature fireplace flanked on each side by bespoke storage and a door giving access to the front garden and thence the beach.

On the first floor is the bright sea facing sitting room with full-height windows overlooking the beach; there is a balcony with feature wrought iron railings. To the rear is a well-proportioned bedroom, a part-tiled family bathroom and a separate modern family shower room. The property’s two remaining double bedrooms can be found on the second floor, both with built-in storage, sink and feature fireplace.

The property also benefits from a self-contained lower ground floor apartment with a separate rear aspect entrance lobby, sitting room, double bedroom, shower room and fitted kitchen from where a staircase rises to the main house inner


The house is approached from the rear off South Road into a “private” parking area. A semi-circular drive leads around a large lawned area and steps from here lead up to the main door way.

On the seaward side of the house is a delightful private and enclosed garden, from where a pedestrian gate leads out on to Marine Parade and the beach! The garden is well-stocked with mature shrubs and trees, providing an ideal space for entertaining and al fresco dining while enjoying panoramic views over the English Channel.


Pelican House is located on prestigious Marine Parade, which enjoys glorious sea views to the front aspect and delightful views over the market town of Hythe to the rear. Hythe offers comprehensive facilities including a Waitrose and a wide range of independent shops. Folkestone and Ashford provide further facilities including a wide range of schooling in both the private and state sector. Further afield, Canterbury also has good shopping and cultural facilities as well as an excellent selection of well regarded schools. Hythe is well placed for access to the M20. Ashford International and Folkestone West offer excellent commuter services via the High Speed link to St Pancras.


In Hythe: Following the one way system - turn right onto Stade Street/Town Bridge, then turn left onto South Road. After 0.1 mile the access to the communal parking area will be found on the right. For viewing it is advisable to park in South Road.
