Burwood House is a handsome and substantial house in an accessible location within reach of Canterbury city centre. Essentially Victorian, the property is thought to have older origins. The current owners have maintained and enhanced the layout, rebuilding the rear of the house to provide a particularly versatile family living space. Perfectly positioned to access schools and commuter links, the house offers a wonderful opportunity.

A large porch with a stained glass front door makes for a generous entrance before it opens to the hall to the centre of the house off which the accommodation radiates. The kitchen/ breakfast room is a good size and is arranged with a central island. This flows through to the family room, which is lit from above by a large glazed lantern, and to the dining room and sitting room beyond. The use of concealed doors allows these rooms to be used either separately or to be combined as a fantastic, largely, open plan space. Light floods in through sash windows and French doors which stretch across the width of the house and give lovely views in to the garden. To the front is a further reception room arranged as a study.

Stairs rise past a stained glass window and a long landing to the end of which is a bright double aspect master bedroom with and en-suite shower room. There are three further well-proportioned bedrooms, again all bright rooms owing to the large sash windows throughout the house.

The property is superbly situated to enjoy all that Canterbury has to offer, including a wide range of cultural, sporting and recreational amenities, together with an excellent range of educational facilities.

Canterbury has two stations with services to London. The High Speed train to London St Pancras from Canterbury West takes around 56 minutes. The nearby A2 links directly to the motorway network and the area has good access to the Continent.

To the front of the house a resin-bound gravel drive provides ample parking. The gardens to the back are thoughtfully laid out and provide a beautiful extension to the house. The reception rooms open to a hardwood deck with a pond. A beautiful blue and white wisteria drapes over a pergola providing a wonderful alfresco dining room.

The garden is laid to lawn, bordered by established beds, and is dominated by a fine acer tree at the foot of which is a rockery. A timber shed houses a sauna and a further provides storage. The garden is a surprisingly private and peaceful oasis in this superbly accessible location.
