Full property description
This delightful first floor two bedroom apartment offers over 700 sq.ft of spacious accommodation and is situated in Raymond Avenue which is less than a mile from the Cathedral city of Canterbury. Built in the 1970s it reflects the typical characteristics that one would find, large Crittall windows and well-proportioned rooms. Raymond Avenue also benefits from a small, private south facing garden, and a separate garage. With the opportunity to enhance and modernise this bright and airy apartment it would make a wonderful home.
On entrance through the UPVC door, stairs rise to the first floor where there is a large window to the right and an original 1970s glazed door to the left which opens into a lovely entrance hall.
The apartment occupies a large sitting room which overlooks the green at the front. It has a charming cast iron fireplace with ceramic tiles, marble hearth and a wooden surround.
There are two bedrooms or alternatively an additional reception room depending on individual requirements, the smaller room sits adjacent to the sitting room and could easily be integrated within the space to create an open plan lounge/diner.
To the rear of the apartment a well-proportioned double bedroom sits opposite the bathroom, which consists of a three-piece aqua coloured suite with shower fixture over the bath.
The kitchen has an array of high gloss contemporary units with wood effect work tops, an oven, microwave, and induction hob are all integrated within this space. There are two built in cupboards one of which would make a perfect pantry.
The exterior is a combination of brick and stylish wooden cladding, to the right of the property the pathway leads you to a south facing gated garden. The garden mainly consists of patio but is private and peaceful and with some attention would be a perfect sun trap to enjoy those summer barbeques.
The apartment also benefits from its own garage, which is situated opposite the property behind the houses in Raymond Avenue, to the front of the property there is a small green with mature trees.
We understand the lease was renewed in 2007 with a 999 year term. Service charges and ground rent for both the apartment and garage are approx. 362 per annum.
Raymond Avenue is perfectly located for Canterbury city centre and less than a mile to the main town centre and an even shorter walk to Waitrose supermarket. Canterbury East train station and the Dane John gardens are also less than half a mile away.
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 Londons 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.
