Well House is a superb family home, close to the city centre, in the popular residential area of St Stephen's. Dating originally to the 18th Century, the property is Grade II Listed and was completely refurbished in 2008 prior to the current owners' purchase. The house is of very elegant proportions, with characterful accommodation in two differing styles.

The front door opens into a vaulted entrance hall with wooden floorboards. To the rear of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room which is superbly fitted with a range of wooden floor units with a huge fireplace with in-built cast iron stove. This fantastic room is flooded with light during the afternoon and enjoys a pretty outlook over the secluded rear garden. From the kitchen/breakfast room, steps descend to the sitting room, a fine room with beamed ceiling and being double aspect with a fireplace housing a wood-burning stove. From the hall, off which is a cloakroom, stairs descend to a lower-ground floor sitting room, currently used as a playroom and with French doors opening to the garden.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms, both of generous proportions and sharing a well-fitted bathroom. Like the hallway, the landing has beautiful oak floorboards. On the second floor, the guest bedroom to the front is situated in the eaves with beautiful beams and Velux windows flooding the room with light. There is a well-fitted en-suite shower room. The master bedroom is to the rear and is a sunny room with a fireplace and built-in wardrobes, and a generous en-suite bathroom which, like the main bedroom, has windows overlooking the rear garden and beyond towards St Stephen's Green.

Well House is situated a short distance from the city centre and Canterbury West station (both within 1 mile). Canterbury offers a wide range of cultural, sporting and recreational amenities. In particular, there is a good range of educational facilities, both in the independent and state sectors.

The A2 has direct access to the remaining southern motorway network. Ashford International and the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone (both about 14 miles away) have regular Eurostar and Shuttle services to the Continent. Canterbury has two railway stations with services to London. Canterbury West provides access to the High Speed services to London St Pancras (57 minutes)

To the front, the house is approached over a shared gravel driveway where there are two parking spaces reserved specifically for Well House, with the property being neatly tucked to one corner.

A door from the hall opens to a paved terrace area to the rear, and to the walled garden beyond. There is a lower level patio and stairs descend to the lower ground floor room. The garden beyond is laid to lawn and planted at the perimeters with a variety of trees and shrubs; it enjoys a sunny aspect throughout the day and, for its position, offers very secluded outside space.
