Full description

A rare opportunity to live in a magical location in the heart of this Ancient city adjacent to the incredible Cathedral. 20 Best lane is a beautiful 16th Century 4 bedroom townhouse located in the centre of the walled City of Canterbury, only a short stroll away from the Cathedral, the new Marlowe Theatre & the spectacular Beaney House of Art & Knowledge.

20 Best Lane is a charming Grade II listed townhouse situated in the heart of the vibrant City of Canterbury. The property is deceptively large, bright and spacious for a period house and close to all amenities.

The front door opens directly into a reception room with tiled floor and large inglenook fireplace with Bressumer beam over. A door then leads through to the sitting room with built-in shelving to one side and a brick fireplace with inset gas fire styled as a wood burner. A door then leads to the kitchen where the current owners have created a stunning dining room which incorporates a double height ceiling with part glass roof and full length glass panels to one side. This addition has created a wonderful light and airy room with space for a range cooker, American style fridge / freezer and dishwasher. There are a number of bespoke cupboards with granite worktops, integrated gas hob and electric oven. A central island with sink provides further storage and work space. Just off the dining room is a cloakroom, currently housing a washing machine and separate tumble drier. There is also a single door leading outside.

On the first floor, accessed via a staircase from the reception room, there are three bedrooms, the principal bedroom having windows to both the side and rear of the property and offering glimpses of the Cathedral; this room has a spectacular vaulted ceiling, wooden floorboards and ensuite wet room with fully tiled floor and walls. There is also a sliding window overlooking the breakfast room below. The two other bedrooms on this floor consist of an excellent size double room with deep fireplace and wooden mantel over having lovely lead windows to the front and a large built-in storage cupboard; bedroom three is a charming single room with storage cupboard and skylight in the roof. There is also a family bathroom on this floor currently comprising bath with shower attachment over, WC, bidet and wash basin. From the landing stairs rise to the second floor which is heavily timbered and comprises bedroom four, a good size double room with views to the Cathedral. There is also an additional room which is currently used as an office / study.

Although there is no garden with this property, 20 Best Lane has a right of access to the rear and there are numerous gardens including Canterbury Three Cities Garden in Best Lane itself and Sollys Orchard Riverside Garden only a short distance away.
