Description

*FANTASTIC PERIOD COTTAGE IN HEART OF CANTERBURY CITY CENTRE!*

NO ONWARD CHAIN! Miles and Barr are delighted to offer to the market this two bedroom period home located within Canterbury's city walls in the ever popular King Street. The terrace dates back to 1856 and is located just a moments walk into the main Canterbury high street with its great choice of cafes, restaurants and retail therapy, as well as being very nearby to Canterbury West train station.

This exquisite property comprises the lounge with log burner and this then leads through to the kitchen/diner with an under stairs cupboard. The kitchen provides access to the rear garden. Upstairs on the first floor there is a generous main bedroom at the front of the property. The rear bedroom has been split to create an upstairs bathroom and a second single bedroom to the first floor.

Externally, there is a nicely presented walled rear garden, it is largely concreted with decorative flowerbeds down either side. There is then at the rear a brick shed with shelving.

Further benefits include original sash windows, wooden shutters at the front of the property, original fireplace in the main bedroom, and gas central heating. The current owners have spent a considerable amount of money to bring it up to the standard it is now presented, including having the property rewired; so you can have confidence that there are no major works needed.

Please call Miles and Barr on[use Contact Agent Button] as the sole agent to arrange all viewings.

Location
Inside the Old City Wall is the the medieval City of Canterbury. Nestled in a quiet street just off the pedestrian High Street, you will find this 3-4 bedroom Victorian terraced house.
This is a great location for all the Universities and colleges, the Marlowe Theatre, the Cathedral, High Street shops and restaurants all of which are a pleasant stroll from the front door.
The history of Canterbury is what makes the location of this house such a special place. Being here chimes of the pilgrims who once traveled, and still do, on foot (but not so much on foot these days) across Europe to visit this city and the Cathedral. The city has been a well-trodden destination for pilgrims since 1012 and it is wonderful to live here now and soak up some of the medieval history.

Culture and Leisure Amenities
Walking distance from the house are quiet places that bring you closer to the soul of this historic city, such as The Greyfriars Gardens and Fiary at the end of the street, which have a beautiful wild flower meadow in summer. At the other end of the Grove is The Westgate Gardens, a tranquil waterside public park, which takes you on a beautiful walk from the centre of the city, along The River Stour and out into the Kent Countryside. A punt can also be taken nearby to the house on Stour Street, that will take you either on a historic tour of the city, under all the buildings that are built over it or you can take The Country Tour, which is my favourite thing to do on a summer's day, heading away from the city into the watery world of the riverbank where ducks and fish enjoy the stream of the clear rippling water and willow trees dangle their branches against the stream.

The Cathedral offers wonderful services, especially at evensong everyday, to lift the spirits. Shopping at Fenwicks is everybody's guilty pleasure so if that is your thing, head to the high street at the top of the Grove and enjoy the delights of the Kings Mile. However, It is in the second hand bookshops, backstreets and quiet gardens of Canterbury that the real magic of our City is found, all of which are in your neighbourhood at this property.
