Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set a little way down from The Kings School and the Cathedral, The Old Harlotry is an unassuming property of considerable charm and character, offering some of the most outstanding accommodation in the city. Set behind the façade of an elegant Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse and a “boutique” shop front (included in the sale) the front door opens into a house full of surprises and charm.

A short passageway leads into a welcoming hallway. A glass wall and door lead into the principal ground floor space, which is divided into three distinct areas. The study area is tucked away behind oak studding and bookcases, providing a quiet and private place to work. Opposite is an informal seating area which opens out into the main dining area. There is ample room for a sizeable table and chairs for those large family gatherings or equally suitable for a more intimate supper party.

The kitchen area is focussed around a central island unit with a peninsular breakfast bar. Custom built in pale wood, there is plenty of storage beneath Corian worksurfaces. A two oven gas-fired Aga completes “the look”. The kitchen has an air of informality and blends in seamlessly with the open, airy feeling of this lovely space.

Beyond the kitchen is the rear hall, with a large utility room to one side and a cloakroom. Glazed double doors lead out to the garden.

Stairs rise from the hall to the first floor landing. To the front is the master bedroom with a generous en-suite bathroom.

The remaining accommodation on this floor is given over to a magnificent 37’ drawing room. This elegantly proportioned Georgian room has beautiful period detailing with part-panelled walls, cornicing and delightful central pedimented alcove with ornate doors to each side, one housing a small bar area, the other a cupboard and access to a secondary staircase to the ground floor. This is a rare and very special room giving enormous opportunities for entertaining on a grand scale or equally as a cosy place for curling up in front of one of the two Georgian fireplaces. With windows on two aspects the room is flooded with light.

The stairs lead to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms and a second bathroom.

Shop
To the front of the house is the self-contained shop, which is currently let at £450pcm. The tenancy is due to expire in 2021 with a break clause in July 2018.

The Old Harlotry is superbly situated to enjoy all that Canterbury has to offer including sporting, recreational and educational facilities, with the King’s School in close proximity.

Canterbury has two stations with services to London. The High Speed link to St Pancras from Canterbury West station takes around 56 minutes.

The A2 provides direct access to the motorway network. Ashford International and the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone provide regular Eurostar and Shuttle services to the Continent.

There is a delightful partly walled garden, landscaped with yorkstone and a central well head planted with a mature olive tree. At the rear of the garden is a detached studio building with light, power and a fitted sink.

Double gates from the garden lead into the private car park. This is a large area and there are 11 rented parking spaces which let at £80pcm each.
