Full property description
A striking and contemporary detached house, set within a generous and secluded plot, conveniently situated within easy reach of CanterburyÂs bustling city centre. The property was built to a particularly high standard by Pentland Homes in 2019 and combines vast, open plan living spaces, extensive glazing and a high specification finish throughout to create a stylish and modern family home.
The property is entered via a double glazed front door, which opens into a spacious entrance hall, with a polished porcelain tiled floor and a well-appointed cloakroom. The remaining ground floor accommodation is completely open plan and forms a horseshoe around the entrance hall, with several clearly defined areas.
To the right of the entrance hall, there is a sitting room, with a large double glazed picture window, overlooking the front garden. The sitting room opens into a spectacular family room across the rear of the house, with a lantern window and bi-folding doors which open onto the rear garden. The kitchen/dining room is to the left of the entrance hall and has been fitted with an extensive range of contemporary wall and floor units from Roma Kitchens, set around sleek work surfaces, integrated appliances and a large island and breakfast bar. The dining area has ample space for a table and chairs and double glazed French doors which open onto the rear garden.
On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to four, generously proportioned double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a modern and stylish white suite. The main bedroom is a splendid double room, with a floor-to-ceiling window, a part-vaulted ceiling with roof lights and a well-appointed en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is also a generous double room, with extensive built-in wardrobes, a view of Canterbury Cathedral and an en-suite shower room with a walk-in rainfall shower.
The property is situated on the edge of The Observatory development and consequently enjoys a larger than average plot and a much greater sense of privacy. To the front of the house, there is a wide front garden, enclosed behind tall hedging, with an attractive paved pathway which leads to the front door. A secure side gate opens into pleasant gardens, which wrap around the side and the rear of the house. These are mainly laid to lawn, with beautifully planted beds and borders and a full width patio area. The garden opens onto a large strip of ecological land, owned by this property and incorporated within the plot to help create a wonderful additional outside space for the property. Another secure gate leads from the rear garden onto a block paved driveway, which provides parking for two cars and leads to a double garage with two electric doors.
The City of Canterbury, with its world-famous cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site) has a pleasantly unexpected cosmopolitan feel to it, with a bustling city centre which offers a wide array of High Street brands, independent retailers, fine pubs, restaurants and eateries.
The city lies on the River Stour and boasts three universities plus several other higher education institutions and colleges which contributes to the city having the highest student to permanent resident ratio in the UK. However, Canterbury remains a small city in terms of geographical size and population when compared with other British cities.
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.
Modern additions include the St Lawrence Ground, home of the Kent County Cricket Club and the Marlowe Theatre, named after the city's famous son Christopher Marlowe, has been built on the river bank.
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 LondonÂs 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.
