Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

A beautifully presented, elegant and spacious ground floor apartment with many period features including high ceilings, sash windows and fireplaces, within easy reach of Canterbury West station. To the rear is a private garden with lawn and decking, which is accessible from the bedroom and kitchen. The basement has been converted to create a wonderful space, which the current owner uses as an occasional bedroom, but would also make a fabulous office, library or music room.

The path to the communal front door leads past an attractive gravel front garden. Upon entering the communal hallway there are front doors to both apartments. The right hand door leads into the ground floor apartment where there is a bright hallway with ornate arch and decorative cornice work.

The sitting room has a large bay window to the front providing an abundance of light. The period fireplace houses a gas coal effect fire and either side are built in shelves and cupboards. There is also a centre ceiling rose, high skirting boards and a period style radiator.

The bedroom has sympathetically designed modern fitted wardrobes and a draw unit which provide an excellent amount of storage. Floor to ceiling double glazed patio doors lead out onto the rear decking area, and there is a further sash window to the side. A lovely ornamental fire place and mantle provide a focal point to the room.

At the end of the hall is wonderful kitchen/diner with a solid oak floor running throughout. A range of attractively coloured wall and floor units are set around laminated work surfaces. There is a one and a half bowl sink and drainer with mixer taps, built in fridge freezer and dishwasher. A door leads into the rear lobby where there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble drier.

A doorway provides access to the tiled bathroom which has an attractive white suite. The basement is accessible via a staircase from the kitchen. This is exceptionally well presented, with an abundance of storage including a built in wardrobe. There is recessed spotlighting and a below ground double glazed window.

OUTSIDE:

The rear garden has been designed to maximise the space available and is laid to lawn and decking. Railway sleepers separate this from the flower and shrub borders, and there is also a useful shed. A gate provides side access to the front.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

We understand from the vendor that the lease was created in 2013 with 125 years, and that the ground rent is approximately £250pa, and the maintenance is approximately £600pa.

SITUATION:

Roper Road is very well located within Canterbury, a short walk from the West station which offers a regular rail service to London Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street, and the high speed rail link connects with London's St Pancras in just under one hour. About 600m away is the centre of the cathedral city of Canterbury, which is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, thriving with a wide array of High Street brands alongside a diverse mix of independent retailers, cafes and international restaurants.

The city also offers a fine selection of sporting, leisure and recreational amenities, including the refurbished Marlowe Theatre. Canterbury has an excellent choice of educational amenities, ranging from grammar schools to well regarded private schools and three universities. Ashford International station and the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone are both about 14 miles away and provide regular Eurostar and shuttle services to the continent, whilst the A2/M2 motorway provides good access to both London and the Channel port of Dover.

The surrounding countryside is predominantly farmland, ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits such as walking and horse riding. Also Blean Woods, which is about 2 miles away, has been designated a site of special scientific interest, and covers more than eleven square miles, providing excellent walking and mountain biking. The nearby seaside town of Whitstable (4.5 miles away) is renowned for its seafood and annual oyster festival which is held along its picturesque quayside and vibrant harbour. Whitstable has a bustling High Street with a good selection of independent retailers, boutiques and High Street names.
