A delightful period home within a short walk of the City Centre, brimming with character including original fireplaces and ornate plaster mouldings. The property is located on a sought-after road in the area of Wincheap, an up-and-coming neighbourhood of Canterbury which offers an eclectic mix of independent shops, sporting activities such as a rock-climbing gym and you also have the Floc. Brewery and Taproom a short walk away. The property is presented over two floors, with accommodation spanning just under 1200 square foot offering generous and well-proportioned rooms.

It is set back from the pavement and has an attractive red brick façade and walled front garden which features a variety of shrubs and bushes including lavender and a climbing plant. A chequered pathway leads to an arched doorway which frames the wooden stained glass front door beautifully.

The front door opens into an entrance hallway, which presents some wonderful period features including a Victorian archway with intricate plaster mouldings and a decorative tiled floor. A door on your left opens into a bright lounge which has a large bay window, allowing plenty of sunshine to pour in. The lounge features stripped floorboards and a wonderful Victorian fireplace with marble surround. A picture rail, decorative ceiling rose and shelving to one side of the fireplace finishes the room off beautifully.

The hallway then opens into the dining room, an atmospheric room with cosy corners, also featuring stripped floorboards and a marble fireplace. There is a bespoke shelving unit built into the recess, to the left of the fireplace. A glass panelled door leads into a large galley style kitchen which has french doors out to the garden. The kitchen has a range-master cooker, and there is space for a large fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.

Stairs from the dining room rise to a large, split landing on the first floor where you will find three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The primary bedroom is to the front of the property, and is particularly spacious, with a sunny aspect. It benefits from a contemporary en-suite shower room which has recently been upgraded by the owner, with a new suite which includes a large walk-in shower unit with a rainfall shower. The room is decorated with modern, white wall tiles with a contrasting dark grey grout. The focal point of the bedroom is the ornate Victorian fireplace, with fitted wardrobes either side. All bedrooms are well-proportioned, and the large landing gives a lovely sense of space between rooms. The family bathroom has a Victorian style suite including a clawfoot bath.

This wonderful property has so many charming attributes and every effort has been made by the owner to retain its character. It has been decorated throughout with a warm, neutral palette of Farrow and Ball colour.

Outside, there is an attractive landscaped garden which enjoys plenty of privacy. There is a patio area and a shingle path leads up through the lawned area to the rear where you will find a garden shed. A variety of mature shrubs and trees line the garden and there is a covered alley which leads to the front of the property, providing side access.
