HouseSimple is pleased to present a spacious Victorian terraced house on the edge of Canterbury within easy walking distance of Canterbury West railway station, local primary and secondary schools, the university and the city centre.
The historic cathedral city of Canterbury is well situated amidst the pretty Kent countryside between the coast, with its cross-Channel links to the continent, and London, now within an hour’s travelling distance by high speed train. There are many buildings of architectural and cultural interest including the Marlowe theatre and an excellent shopping centre with numerous restaurants. Canterbury boasts good recreational and sports facilities: several swimming pools and sports centres, golf clubs and, of course, the Spitfire Cricket Ground.
The property is one of a terrace of 4 tall Victorian houses set back from the road behind a small front garden and wrought iron railings. Dating from1901, the house retains many period features such as cast-iron fireplaces, cornicing and stripped pine floors in most rooms. It is arranged over 3 floors with an additional cellar, currently used for storage.
On the ground floor is an entrance hall, with coat hanging space and radiator, opening into the main living area. This is a large room which could be divided by doors if required, but is currently open-plan with a seating area at one end and a dining area at the other. Both areas have feature fireplaces. Through the dining area is the inner hall with stairs rising to the first floor and down to the cellar.
Through the inner hall is the good-sized kitchen with brick feature chimney breast and ornamental wood stove. There is a range of base units with beech worktops and space for cooker, washing machine and fridge freezer. There is an extractor unit and plate rack as well as a wall-mounted Vaillant combi gas boiler
The door to the rear of the house leads to the patio and pretty rear garden attractively laid out with a variety of shrubs and a path leading to a secluded, fully enclosed lawn. At the bottom of the garden is a rose arch through which a path leads to a garden shed.
On the first floor are 2 bedrooms, both doubles, and a large attractive family bathroom with white bath, WC, washbasin and walk-in shower. There is a Victorian fireplace and an airing cupboard.
Another flight of stairs leads from the 1st floor landing to the 2nd floor, where there is eaves storage space (over the bathroom) and 2 further double bedrooms – one with cathedral view to the front and one with Velux window to the rear. There is eaves storage space in both bedrooms.
The cellar currently provides a useful storage space and workshop area and is divided into 2 rooms with a window to the outside and the original coal hole. There would be potential to convert the cellar to living space and to add a conservatory subject to the usual consents.
The current owners rent a garage around the corner in St Stephens Close and this rental could be taken over if desired by the purchasers. Together with the forecourt, it provides parking for 2 cars. Annual residents’ permits are also available for on street parking.
Fixtures and fittings available by separate negotiations.
