7 bedroom house for saleSt Peters Lane, Canterbury, CT1
After admiring the white painted facade of the four storey listed building, enter through the front door into a grand hall way with high ceilings and original features, these same high ceilings flow through the large door in to the main reception room. Flooded with natural light from either end thanks to oversize Georgian windows there is no doubt left in ones mind as to the grandeur of the drawing room.
Potentially one of the most flexible and adaptable houses of the period in Canterbury, used by the current owners as a boutique bed and breakfast but lending itself happily to a private home there are currently 5 double bedrooms and two single bedrooms as well as a self contained studio apartment.
With original shutters at the windows and proportions maintained as one climbs to the upper floors it is clear the White House has so much to offer. Proximity to the city centre yet positioned in a no through road with theatre to the rear and arts hall and cinema to the front, the house, in St Peters Lane has one of the most desirable addresses in the Canterbury.
Each of the upper floors have two double bedrooms and a large single all with en-suite bath or shower rooms and each with a unique charm of its own. It is understood that there is likely potential to make a master floor which would include a bathroom, dressing room and sumptuous bedroom.
An additional room, accessed from a half landing is potentially one of the most flexible, currently a doubled bedroom but music room, cinema room or children's play room seem likely alternatives.
Very traditionally the kitchen, complete with box bay window is to the rear of the house, overlooking the courtyard garden and with access to the lower ground floor, it is clearly a working kitchen and has ample room for table if required.
The lower ground floor often neglected here could be income potential, nanny housing or simply somewhere for teenagers to hide. Sub divided but easily reconnected the current studio arrangement would surely be an Airbnb hit still leaving an additional room as part of the main house, or knocked through to create a new kitchen (subject to necessary consents).
The White House is in the heart of Canterbury, on street residents parking and car parks are literally a stones throw from the house. Mainline high-speed rail links to London taking less than an hour are a short walk away and, positioned in what one may call the artistic quarter there is a theatre, art house cinema and numerous restaurants on your door step. The city is home to some of the most highly regarded fee paying, state and grammar schools as well as several universities, whilst the channel ports and connection to mainland Europe are within easy reach.
The White House offers much scope for a new owner, change of use from B and B to residential use has been granted but not yet taken place leaving a potential purchaser with the choice. An amazing family house, or unique B and B.
