Full property description
A thoroughly unique Grade ll Listed semi-detached house with a courtyard garden and private gated parking, situated within the bustling cathedral city of Canterbury. The property has been carefully renovated to an exceptional standard, combining high quality fittings such as rich, marble counter tops and tiling, parquet oak flooring and bespoke Crittal windows and shutters with a highly stylized chic and trendy London loft style interior. The end result is an exclusive and individual city residence, offering a true statement in style and design.
The front door opens into a predominantly open plan living space, currently arranged as a clearly defined sitting area, dining area and kitchen, all with a striking parquet oak floor. Adjacent to the front door, there is a wall of floor to ceiling mirrored storage units, one of which serves as a useful utility cupboard.
The kitchen and dining areas are bathed in an abundance of natural light from an entire wall of glazing which connects the property with its private walled garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a good range of sleek, contemporary wall and floor units, set around light marble counter tops, integrated appliances and metro style tiling.
The marble finish continues in the bathroom as well, complementing the underfloor heating and the high quality sanitary ware and fittings by C. P. Hart, to create an undeniable sense of luxury and quality of finish.
A staircase rises to the first floor, which has been completely opened up to create a thoroughly impressive triple aspect room, with a beamed and vaulted ceiling and another entire wall of glazing, which overlooks the garden. Once again, this ample space has been clearly defined with a sitting area and a spacious bedroom with useful eaves storage.
The courtyard style garden is fenced on one side and enclosed by tall brick walls on the remaining two sides, creating an unusual degree of privacy for such a convenient and central location. The garden is predominantly gravelled and paved, offering a pleasant yet low maintenance outside space. A set of twin timber gates provides vehicular access from Tudor Road, allowing the equally unusual advantage of off street parking for one car.

Wincheap is a popular residential area on the outskirts of Canterbury and is well served by numerous independent shops, a nearby retail park and a Morrisons supermarket. It enjoys easy access to Canterbury city centre and also has convenient access to the A2/M2 motorway which provides good access to both London and the channel port of Dover.
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.
