A charming two-bedroom period home in the heart of Canterbury's desirable St. Dunstan's area, close to the West Station, fantastic eateries, coffee shops and the High Street. Offered to the market with no forward chain, this superb home would be ideal for those who enjoy the excitement of city living but want a quiet haven to retreat to at the end of the day.
The property has been very well maintained over the years but now provides the appealing opportunity for new owners to modernise in certain areas and create their ideal home. On the ground floor, there are two reception rooms creating spacious living accommodation. The lounge is a beautiful, bright room with a feature fireplace and built-in shelving and storage either side. The windows have secondary glazing and pretty, coloured glass panes. There are double doors separating the dining room and lounge so you can choose to have them closed for privacy if you wish. The dining room is spacious and also has some built-in storage and access to a cupboard under the stairs. This then leads to a good-sized kitchen with smart, matching wall and base units providing ample storage and space for food preparation. There is a fitted Neff electric oven with gas hob and space under the counter for a washing machine and dishwasher. There is also a designer ceramic sink with a mixer tap. The kitchen has been extended to create a downstairs WC and a peaceful seating area where you can relax and look out to the pretty courtyard garden.
On the first floor, a landing leads to a large bathroom and two bedrooms. There is a spacious and bright bedroom to the front, large enough to comfortably fit a king size bed. There is a pretty feature fireplace with some built-in storage to the side and the windows have the same attractive coloured panels as those in the lounge. There is a good-sized second bedroom to the back which also has a feature fireplace and a built-in cupboard. The bathroom is spacious and is decorated in a soft duck egg blue and white floor tiles. There is a bath and separate shower and a fitted vanity unit with a sink and WC and a large cupboard for towels and toiletries. From the landing, there is access into the loft by pull down ladder and the loft is boarded for storage.
Outside, there is a pleasant and low-maintenance courtyard garden to the rear with potted plants bordering, offering a peaceful setting to relax or enjoy socialising with friends and family. There are solar panels fitted to the roof and there is also gated access to an alleyway where you can take your dustbins out.
St. Dunstan's is unsurprisingly one of the most desirable areas in Canterbury to live in. The close proximity to the West Station makes it the ideal base for commuters or people who enjoy regular day trips to London as you can hop on the high speed service and arrive in St. Pancras in under an hour. There are superb restaurants, pubs and shops a short stroll away and plenty of activities to keep you busy at evenings and weekends. The Curzon Cinema offering showings of both independent and popular films is only a short stroll away as is Canterbury's beloved Marlowe Theatre. The nearby Westgate Gardens provide a beautiful setting for a picnic or a spot of people watching, and you can enjoy a peaceful stroll along the River Stour.
