5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in St Augustine's Road, Canterbury

3 5 2 1

"We moved here from London some five years ago because we had often spent time with other family members who live nearby and we really grew to love Canterbury and the surrounding area. We also love this house especially being so close to the city centre, but we need to move for business reasons. We can even walk to the shops in 12 minutes but even though we are so close to the centre of the City, there are still lovely places to go for walks and, with the playing fields and parkland nearby. The close proximity to the wonderful Kent countryside and nearby villages is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to nature yet still wants to enjoy the benefits of being close to the city centre.

Canterbury is a wonderful city with a wide variety of historic buildings, high street stores and individual shops as well as numerous restaurants, bars and the cinema as well as the Marlowe and Gulbenkian theatres and two stations including Canterbury West servicing the high speed train to St Pancras in central London in 54 minutes. There are also a number of excellent grammar and private schools, two universities and a further education college and plenty of opportunities for sporting enthusiasts with the Kent cricket ground within walking distance as well as a golf club, sports club and swimming pool”.

This very attractive detached house is a veritable Tardis of a property with plenty of space for a growing family. Built in the Edwardian era it is full of delightful period features from the exterior black and white eaves and large bays windows to the interior herringbone parquet flooring, picture rails, high skirting boards, fireplaces and a charming stained glass inner front door. At the same time this very spacious, light and airy family home has everything you require for modern day living.

From the moment you walk through the porch into the large entrance hall you can feel the warm atmosphere, and this continues as you go through into the bright kitchen/breakfast room with its lovely cream coloured units that is the real hub of the household. This includes a wonderful four oven Aga that keeps the place warm as well as an integral fridge, freezer, larder and dishwasher. It has very large French glazed doors to the beautiful conservatory and when they are open creates a wonderful overall space for entertaining friends and family as the conservatory is large enough to be an extra lounge/dining room.

There is a very elegant lounge with a wood burning stove and a large bay window with attractive stained glass chequered panels and opposite is an equally charming room with a matching bay window that is currently being used as an office with a wall of shelving. This would also make an excellent dining room for more formal occasions or a playroom for the children. This floor also includes a cloakroom, utility room and a study with a corner fireplace and french doors to the terrace as well as an internal door to the garage.

 

The lovely original staircase leads to a half landing with a good sized family shower room and a double bedroom with a wall of fitted wardrobes. Off the very spacious galleried landing on the first floor is a double bedroom and the master bedroom with its charming fireplace and a fitted dressing area leading to the en suite bathroom. On the top floor you will find a double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and a plethora of Velux windows, providing plenty of natural light. There is a further bedroom on this floor but this might also make another bathroom creating a separate upstairs suite that could be very suitable for a teenager looking for a bit of privacy and independence.

Outside there is an easy to maintain secluded rear garden with a lawn and shrub borders as well as a garden shed and a play area while at the front, as the house is set well back from the road, there is a lawn trees and shrubs sheltering the house from the road as well as a brick pathway to the house and a driveway providing off road parking for two vehicles.
