Full description

Tenure: Leasehold


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 £90,000, please contact Ward & Partners.


This top floor flat, one of just 4 in the block, is an ideal rental investment opportunity and also a First Time Buyer home in a popular area of Hersden in Canterbury, Kent.

Located just off the A28, it is to the North East of Canterbury. 5.4 miles and a 13 minute drive takes you into Canterbury City Centre, via Westbere and Sturry in one direction and into Upstreet in the other. Hersden is well served by the local bus route into Canterbury so the flat is well placed for Canterbury workers, offering them affordable accommodation and convenience of quick access into a superb cultural City. Canterbury itself is now well served with train links to London, including the High Speed Train from Canterbury West. In our opinion, the flat is presented to a standard enabling new owners or tenants, if purchased as an investment, to move straight in.

The open plan lounge/diner gives a feeling of space and the bedroom is a good size. The kitchen is neat and functional and the flat is fully double glazed and has electric heating throughout.

What the Owner says:

We bought this flat as a great investment property and it really is an ideal flat in this regard. It is also a great first time buyer opportunity and is one flat in a block of just 4, which is pretty unusual these days. There is plenty of parking and the communal garden at the rear is ideal for laundry and just simply relaxing.

  • Entrance Hall: 12'5 x 3'3 (3.79m x 0.99m)
  • Bedroom: 9'7 x 9'4 (2.92m x 2.85m)
