Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally built in 1836 this lovely little cottage has just enjoyed a full renovation to very high standards, so that it now has all of the benefits of modern living whilst nevertheless retaining many original character features!

Take a moment to relax by the fire in the wonderfully warm and cosy living room with it's reclaimed wooden floorboards that run throughout the entire ground floor, before moving on into the newly fitted and beautifully crafted kitchen, which features a cleverly built-in dishwasher, fridge, freezer, oven, ceramic induction hob, and stainless steel extractor. This leads on into what was originally the scullery but is now a lovely light and airy sun/dining room with French doors that open onto the fully enclosed newly crafted courtyard garden, paved in Indian Fossil Sandstone, with raised beds and views of the Cathedral, and the original outside (and now fully renovated!) WC 'Privy' at the bottom of the garden!

From the kitchen the original staircase curls up to a now roomy landing leading to the lovely Master Bedroom - with original fireplace still in situ - and large sash window giving picturesque views toward St Radigunds. At the side of the new landing is now a full family bathroom with bath and shower over and also the new Gas combi central heating boiler. At the rear of the house is the small second bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and an original built in wardrobe/cupboard.

Whether you're a couple looking to down-size and have all of Canterbury's pleasures within walking distance, or Londoner's looking for a weekend retreat or re-location home, or first time buyers, or investors looking for a character property to let on the short term/holiday letting market... then this could well be the cottage for you!

The town centre is just a couple of minutes walk from the property and offers a wide selection of shops and restaurants as well as the famous Cathedral.

Canterbury has many educational establishments from Primary to Grammar Schools and Universities with a number of sports facilities, Kent County Cricket ground and two theatres, whilst the Highspeed HS1 trains to London St Pancras (56 minutes) are just a five minute walk away, and there is easy access by car to London and Dover via the A2/M2.

Levels of overnight stays for leisure and business travel in the county has soared immensely in the past decade. This is a real opportunity for investors to meet demand.
