FABULOUS HOME WITH MANY ATTRACTIVE FEATURES

Affectionately known as ‘The little House’ this early 19th century, grade II listed family home is centrally located on Duck Lane in Canterbury.

Boasting three double bedrooms upstairs - master with en-suite bathroom and separate family bathroom also on the first floor. On the ground floor is the hallway, lounge with open fire and wood flooring, separate sitting room/snug, again with open fire, kitchen/breakfast room, shower room and fourth bedroom. Externally to the rear is an enclosed courtyard garden which is mainly paved.
The property is situated centrally in the city of Canterbury, being within easy access of the High Street and all its amenities. These include an excellent modern shopping centre, the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University and other colleges, together with an excellent choice of schools in both the public and private sectors. In addition to the High Street is the Kings Mile, which is a lovely mall of boutique style shops, cafes, eateries and public houses. Canterbury has two mainline railway stations, with Canterbury West offering the high speed service to London (St Pancras 56 mins).

The Vendor's View - The Little House is a very peaceful place to live in the heart of Canterbury – we are just minutes away from the city centre and have walks along the river with all its wildlife practically on our doorstep. Being a cul-de-sac means there is no traffic and we have good parking with our permit. The Canterbury schools for all ages are amazing and are easy to access. You can easily live here without a car as everything from picking up supplies to socialising and entertainment is nearby, so we feel this is an amazing location.
2 Duck Lane was built over 150 years ago by a carpenter for his family, next door to his workshop which is now a two-bedroom property. An archeological dig found we are located on the original placement of the Roman Walls, so this is a house with plenty of history.
We love that our home is perfect for the summer and winter. Our courtyard garden has sunshine throughout the day, it is amazing for barbecues and parties, while we have a beautiful snug sitting room called the Red Room with a cosy fire. The large kitchen has dividing doors onto the main living room, so you can be relaxing in there while one of you cooks but still be together in an open space. The rooms are versatile; we have had them set up for different purposes and it makes for a generously-sized family home. There is a lovely atmosphere, with bright living and a perfect flow, it has the feel of a country house in the middle of Canterbury, which makes it totally unique.
This has been a lovely place to live, we are going to miss everything about Canterbury and being able to listen to the cathedral bells from our courtyard.
