A handsome Grade II listed period house close to Canterbury City centre commanding fine views over the City wall and Canterbury Cathedral. The property is now in need of complete restoration and refurbishment and provides extensive scope for reconfiguration and adaptation. To the rear in particular the accommodation could be adapted and extended to provide contemporary open-plan space overlooking and opening onto the courtyard garden (subject to all necessary consents). On the ground floor is an elegant reception hall with attractive staircase rising to the first floor. There are three reception rooms: a sitting room to the front, dining room to rear and breakfast room adjoining the kitchen. In turn the kitchen has direct access to the rear courtyard garden. There is also a covered passageway providing separate access to Broad Street and also accommodating a further storage area and w.c. From the hall the staircase leads down to the cellar which has standing head room and a window to the front. On the first floor is an attractive landing and large bedroom to the front, making the most of the views over Canterbury Cathedral. There are two further bedrooms to the rear and shower room. The property benefits from gas fired heating via a combination boiler in the kitchen and some secondary glazing.
Externally there is a courtyard to the rear measuring approximately 12ft (3.65m) x 16ft (4.87m), providing a paved seating area and opening to: the side driveway with a cobbled surface having double timber gates to the front giving vehicular access to and from Broad Street. The driveway is approximately 58ft (17.66m) long x 10ft 6 (3.20m) wide.
The property is set close to the centre of Canterbury near the King's Mile area of the City, well known for its colourful variety of independent retailers, restaurants, cafes and bistros. The City centre is a short walk, as are the Cathedral precincts and The King's School. Canterbury enjoys a wide range of shops and restaurants, leisure facilities and a variety of high quality schools, colleges and universities. The High-Speed rail link from nearby Canterbury west station provides services to London St. Pancras in approximately 55 minutes.
