Ms Jones, Surrey
This was the second property we've sold through Mann and although they were eight years apart, we've walked away with the same positive view.
Mann Estate Agents are privileged to bring to the open market a beautifully presented 1920's four bedroom detached home with garden, garage and driveway situated in the prestigious area of North Canterbury. Within close proximity of Canterbury City Centre, this home is perfect for those wanting the city lifestyle yet so conveniently situated for good commuting links.
A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire an imposing four bedroom detached period home with a handsome curb appeal, set back from the ever so desirable Whitstable Road. A generous driveway for two cars and a single garage offers ample parking, a huge advantage given the property is located so centrally to Canterbury and Canterbury West train station.
The current owners have maintained the property to a very high standard throughout and have recently decorated all of the rooms. A welcoming entrance hallway leads through to a downstairs cloakroom. A lovely original feature to the house is the wooden floor boards that flow throughout the ground floor, giving a real character feel. Accommodation on offer includes three well proportioned reception rooms which include the sitting room that benefits from a coal effect fireplace and takes central focus point to the room. There is also a large double glazed bay window to front filling the room with copious amounts of light. A second dual aspect reception room to the rear of the property has double doors leading out into the considerably sized rear garden. In addition, an extension was previously added to the property to gain a good sized dining room leading off from the kitchen. The kitchen has a number of wall and floor fitted units, solid wood work surfaces and integral appliances and designed to a neutral colour scheme with ceramic tiled flooring.
Rising to the first floor you will find two large double bedrooms and two single bedrooms. There is a main family bathroom with white fitted suite and separate shower. There is a very spacious loft with potential for a further extension to gain an additional double bedroom with en suite bathroom( subject to sufficient planning permission ).
To the rear of the property is a superb East-facing garden, mainly laid to lawn and has an abundance of mature shrubbery, plans and trees. The garden measures approximately 85 feet x 35 feet.
The property benefits from double glazing to the front, gas fired central heating and must be viewed to appreciate the wealth of accommodation this fine home has to offer.
One can hear the bells of Canterbury Cathedral from this lovely detached period property, set back from the road in an ideal location. No flood risk on a rise beyond St Dunstans Church (home of Saint Sir Thomas Mores head). Five-minute walk to Joseph Conrads gravesite in Canterbury Cemetery. Easy access to A2, 45 minute drive to Greenwich, 5 minute walk to Canterbury West station (56 minute fast train to St Pancras; 2 hours Eurostar to Paris, Gare du Nord, via Ashford); 10 minute walk to Canterbury High Street, and to the University of Kent in the opposite direction. Whitstable Road is conveniently situated close to the thriving St Dunstan's area of Canterbury, with it's array of shops and restaurants. Canterbury's historic city centre is only a short stroll away. The property is in the catchment area for St Stephen's primary school, Kent College, St Edmund's and The King's Public Schools.
