5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Clifton Gardens, Canterbury

“When we built the house we wanted something special and individual and we have loved living here and bringing up our family over the past 32 years but they are all grown up now and we feel it is time to downsize although we shall undoubtedly miss our home very much. We thoroughly enjoy entertaining which is why we in effect have ‘two’ kitchens and tried to ensure that we could provide everything needed for leisure and pleasure. The swimming pool has been extremely well used over the years and we built the terrace as big as it is so that there is plenty of room for any number of friends and family to enjoy our hospitality. While the lounge and dining room really come into their own over Christmas and the New Year holidays.

“We originally fell in love with the position because we are really tucked away and it is so quiet and tranquil yet we are near to the West Gate at Canterbury and the pubs and restaurants, our children could walk to school or we could stroll along to the station for the high speed train to St Pancras. There is so much to do in the vicinity, whether you want to sail at Fordwich or Whitstable, go to the theatre at the Gulbenkian or the Marlowe, play golf at the Canterbury Golf club or sample some of the wonderful restaurants in the city. At the same time we can enjoy country walks along the ‘Crab and Winkle’ route or relax in our secluded and peaceful garden watching the local wildlife such as birds and squirrels and some years we have even seen a family of fox cubs on the terrace.”

If you want a beautiful and unique detached family home, providing the seclusion and security associated with rural living, yet be within easy walking distance of Canterbury West station, a number of excellent schools, the Kent University and the city centre, this stunning property should be top of your list. It is hidden away down a long gravel drive at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, nestling in the midst of about a third of an acre of landscaped garden and grounds and accessed via impressive wrought iron remote controlled gates. From the moment you set eyes on the Tudor style black and cream exterior of the house with its lovely wood surround windows, cathedral style upper windows, beautiful yellow roses and gorgeous old wood front door with its stained glass insert, you know it is something really special and once inside the individuality of the house becomes even more apparent.Little Manor was designed and built by the owners in 1986. It is timber framed and incorporates a variety of glorious features giving it great character and charm. This is evident from the moment you walk into the warm and welcoming reception hall with its Merbau wood flooring, attractive staircase, original wood doors and beams. In fact everywhere you look there are beams, whether they are fascinating structural beams supporting the property or ornate lintels over doorways or fireplaces. These includ... Read more
