Tenure: Freehold

CHECK OUT THE AERIAL VIDEO! A handsome Grade ll Listed Georgian townhouse which offers exceptionally well appointed accommodation over three floors, conveniently situated within easy access of Canterbury’s vibrant city centre and mainline stations.

The property has undergone a meticulous and painstakingly detailed programme of renovation, carried out by a family run business of expert craftsmen who specialise in the high quality restoration of period homes. This father and son team have carefully and diligently spent the last 18 months restoring and rebuilding this impressive home, with a quality of workmanship and attention to detail rarely seen. The end result is a sophisticated blend of modern luxury, alongside some truly fine period features.

The property is entered via a front door with a handsome fanlight above it. This opens into a welcoming sitting room with cornice work, a picture rail, an original storage cupboard, a bespoke entertainment cabinet and lovely exposed floorboards. The centre piece for this elegant room is a grandiose slate fireplace with a tiled hearth, whilst a tall sash window, with bespoke shutters, floods the room with an abundance of natural light.

A wide opening leads to a simply spectacular kitchen, with stairs to the first floor and a door to the rear garden. This warm and welcoming room has been fitted with a bespoke range of handmade wooden wall, floor and display cabinets, set around rich maple work surfaces, a Butler sink, Metro style brick tiling and a range of integrated appliances.

The quality of the kitchen is exceptional, whilst its traditional styling is perfectly complemented by the room’s natural features such as the exposed floorboards and a rich, exposed brick feature wall.

Adjacent to the kitchen, there is a useful outbuilding in the rear garden, which has also been completely renovated, insulated and sympathetically clad in white weatherboarding. This has been fitted with additional kitchen units and work surfaces, has plumbing for a washing machine and serves as an ideal utility room with a separate WC.

On the first floor, a large galleried landing with recessed display alcoves, leads to two bedrooms (both with decorative fireplaces and one with built-in storage) and the family bathroom. This has been fitted with a stylish white suite which includes a WC, a sink set upon an oak topped vanity unit and a bath with a shower over it.

Once again, bespoke display alcoves have been added for convenient storage, whilst the bathroom has been finished with clean, white ceramic wall tiles and contemporary charcoal porcelain floor tiles.

From the landing, another staircase rises to a large double bedroom on the second floor. This has a wonderful exposed brick dual chimney stack and a dual aspect, which allows plenty of natural light to this top floor room.

OUTSIDE:

The rear garden measures approximately 50 ft and has been beautifully landscaped to create an appealing, yet low maintenance outside space. Immediately adjacent to the house, there is a concrete patio area and an attractive white weatherboarded outbuilding with a Kent peg tiled roof, which houses the utility room and WC.

Beyond this, a gravelled pathway weaves its way past well stocked brick edged flowerbeds and a mature fruit tree, to a secluded area of artificial grass, a block paved patio area and another superb outbuilding. This has double glazed windows, power connected and could easily serve as a home office, a games room or a studio.

There is a thoughtful area for wheelie bins and a gated rear access to the garden, which also provides a rear access for the neighbouring property.

SITUATION:

Wincheap is a popular residential area on the outskirts of Canterbury and is well served by numerous independent shops, a nearby retail park and a Morrison’s supermarket. It enjoys easy access to Canterbury city centre and also has convenient access to the A2/M2 motorway which provides good access to both London and the channel port of Dover.

The vibrant cathedral city of Canterbury offers a wide choice of amenities including a range of High Street and independent retailers, restaurants, pubs, leisure facilities and the very popular recently refurbished Marlowe Theatre. It also has an excellent selection of both state and independent schools, along with three universities, two mainline railway stations, two hospitals and a very good bus service.

A popular tourist destination, historical Canterbury is consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom, with the city's economy heavily reliant upon tourism. The city is home to many ancient structures including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and a Norman castle, and the oldest extant school in the world, the King's School.

The city is served by a regular rail service to London Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street and the high speed rail link connects with London’s St Pancras from Canterbury West station in just under one hour, making this an ideal destination for commuters. However, the city is surrounded by some beautiful countryside, with many footpaths and bridleways, also ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits.
