Full description

40 Scott Avenue was built by Ward Homes in 2006 with an extension to a third floor in 2010, and is located on the St Jacob's development. The development lies on the edge of Wincheap and is within easy walking distance of Morrisons supermarket, various shops, Canterbury East railway station and is well located for the A28 Canterbury to Ashford/Maidstone Road and the A2 to Dover and London. There is a public park containing a children's play area at the south end of Scott Avenue. This spacious extended semi-detached house has unusually high ceilings to the first floor, gas central heating, sealed-unit double-glazing, front and rear gardens.

Agent's Note 
We understand from the owner that an annual maintenance charge is payable to the company managing the common parts of the St Jacob's Development. This was £73.98 in January 2017, although we have not seen written verification of this and suggest the purchaser and his solicitor check it prior to exchange of contracts. A peppercorn rent is charged for the garage on the initial assignment of the covenant for its lease.
