Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Langside House is one of those rare finds – an excellent family house in a wonderfully private location, hidden away yet readily accessible to the city centre.

Offered on the market for the first time since it was built about 40 years ago the property offers wonderfully light, spacious and very gracious accommodation.

A wide porchway leads into a welcoming reception hall from where a wrought iron balustraded staircase rises to the upstairs accommodation. Off the hall to the left is the generous sitting room, a bright and flexible space with an attractive feature fireplace. Approached through a set of double doors is the beautiful bespoke conservatory/sun room, offering ample space for informal dining and relaxation. Double doors lead to the garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fully fitted with a range of complementing wall and base units with extensive granite work surfaces over. A central island is the focal and social point of the room. There is ample space for a table and chairs for family suppers etc. Opposite the kitchen is the dining room with bay window. There are also two cloakrooms, one of which is situated within a useful utility area with access outside and through to the property’s garage.

A wide and bright landing, with distinctive ceiling rose and coving, leads to the principal bedroom. This is another generous room with substantial built-in wardrobes and views of the garden. The en suite bathroom is luxuriously fitted with modern double sinks; one wall is fully fitted with marble. The second and third bedrooms also have en suite bathrooms, whilst a further bedroom completes the accommodation on this level.

The property is located in a quiet and desirable cul de sac in popular South Canterbury, within walking distance of the historic city centre, which offers an extensive range of leisure, cultural, shopping and sporting facilities, and a number of popular cafés and bars, as well as the Marlowe Theatre. The cricket ground and hospital are within easy reach. There are well-regarded schools in both state and private sectors, including the Simon Langton grammar schools, St Edmunds and The King’s School,

Road and rail links are excellent, with the A2 and M2 (Junction 7) just a short drive away, providing easy access to the entire motorway network, central London and further afield. The surrounding countryside and pretty villages including Wingham, Wickhambreaux, Littlebourne and Ickham provide a wonderful balance of city and countryside living. High-Speed train services run from Canterbury West to London St Pancras in under an hour. The area has good access to the Continent.

The house is approached off the New Dover Road by a private driveway leading directly to the house. A five-bar gate gives access to the paved driveway that sweeps around the garden to the triple garage.

Professionally landscaped and planted the garden is an oasis in the centre of the city. Beautifully sculptured topiary and trees form points of interest and from here the colourful beds provide splashes of colour during the seasons. Individual seating areas form a series of “rooms” in which to enjoy vistas over the very private, partially walled garden.

The garden is an utter delight and a beautiful setting for this outstanding house.
