IN ACCORDANCE WITH CURRENT GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES, WE REMAIN OPEN AND ARE ABLE TO FACILITATE PROPERTY VIEWINGS UNDER STRICT COVID-SECURE PROCEDURES. An attractive and traditionally styled two bedroom detached house, built to a particularly high specification in 2016, with ample parking and a secluded garden, situated in an exclusive private road on the outskirts of Canterbury.
The property combines a sympathetically styled weather-boarded exterior with an extremely stylish and contemporary interior and a generosity of space rarely seen in a two bedroom home.
The property is entered via a UPVC front door, which opens into a welcoming entrance hall with a useful cupboard under the stairwell, which offers handy storage and cloakroom space. To the right of the hallway, there is a superb, dual aspect sitting room, with wood effect flooring and double glazed French doors which open onto the rear garden.
To the left of the entrance hall, there is a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room with a dual aspect, a well-appointed cloakroom and double glazed French doors which open onto the rear garden. The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of wall and floor units, set around woodblock work surfaces, integrated appliances and a ceramic one and a half bowl sink.
On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to an impressive master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and a dressing room/office, a generous sized double bedroom and separate bathroom. Both bedrooms are surprisingly large double bedrooms, as shown on the floorplan.
The property is approached via a long, block paved driveway, which provides extensive parking for numerous cars. There is a useful timber shed for storage and a gate which leads to the rear. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with mature flower and shrub borders and a decked patio area which extends across the entire rear of the house.
Pippins Place enjoys a private and secluded position, set back from the Ashford Road just outside the bustling city of Canterbury. Located within easy walking distance of the nearby retail outlets, Morrisons supermarket and the numerous shops and business of Wincheap. Yet despite this incredibly convenient location, the property is also within easy reach of the nearby villages of Chartham and Chilham coupled with some outstanding countryside and river walks, for walking, cycling and many other outdoor pursuits.
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.
Ashford International station and the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone are both about 14 miles away and provide regular Eurostar and shuttle services to the continent whilst the nearby A2/M2 motorway provides good access to both London and the Channel port of Dover.
