10 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Whitstable Road, Canterbury,

“When we first saw this property we fell in love with the Victorian architecture, the grandeur of the rooms and the sense of history that pervaded throughout.  At the time it was in a neglected state as it had been previously used as offices and living accommodation. However we really enjoyed the challenge of renovating, refurbishing and extending the house to suit our needs whilst ensuring the property remained flexible should future owners wish to occupy it differently.
