End of Terrace House
Beverley Road, Canterbury
A splendid Edwardian, bay fronted, three bedroom, end of terrace in a quiet but very central location in the Cathedral City of Canterbury. This handsome property has a wealth of period features including tall sash windows, original internal doors, stripped original floorboards, along with a number of cast iron fireplaces and is a short stroll from the Beverley Meadows recreation ground, Canterbury West Station and local schools.
An attractive, original wooden front door, with frosted glass panes, opens into a high-ceilinged entrance hall with stripped wooden floorboards and a useful coat hanging area to the left. To the right an original solid wood door opens into a bright bay fronted reception room. Currently used as a dining room, this well-proportioned space has wonderful, well maintained, period sash windows, stripped original floorboards and a sumptuous marble fire surround housing a beautiful Edwardian cast iron fireplace with original inset tiles.
At the end of the entrance hallway another original internal door opens to the living room. An ornate, original, timber framed, sash window provides ample natural light and looks out towards the South-facing rear garden. The chimney breast has been opened out to provide an attractive and versatile alcove space, with a mantlepiece above, ideal for a log burner.
A door from the living room leads to an internal lobby area with a spacious understairs cupboard to the right and the half turn stairs adjacent to this. The whole area has wonderful natural light from the sash window in the stairwell.
Beyond this, the kitchen has original stripped wood floorboards and a range of wall and base units with roll-top work surfaces and tiled splash back. There is an integrated oven with a four-ring gas hob and another gorgeous, tall sash window looking to the side. Beyond the kitchen there is another internal lobby with a utility area to the left with space for washing machine and dryer and to the right a half-glazed door provides access to the garden. From this space a door takes one to the well-proportioned family bathroom. Fully tiled and with a classic white suite, including a deep cast iron bath, this bright room also has a heated towel rail and an internal storage cupboard housing the boiler.
To the first floor a galleried landing gives access to a character single bedroom, at the rear of the house, with a large sash window overlooking the garden and a lovely cast iron fireplace.
A long corridor leads to the front of the house, taking one first to a good-sized double bedroom with an original fireplace, storage cupboard and a tall sash window overlooking the garden. Whilst the bay fronted master bedroom has original floorboards, a cast iron fireplace and fabulous sash windows with a commanding view of Beverley Road.
A pretty and low maintenance front garden has an attractive original tiled path to the front door and a shingled area. The South-facing rear garden is approximately 57ft long with shingle with flag stone slabs leading from the kitchen to a decked area with power and light. Beyond there is a lovely lawn with a workshop with power and light at the end. A shingle and flagstone path flanks the lawn terminating at the wide wooden back gate.
