Perfect for the lazy gardener
Best Lane Canterbury Price: £499,950 Agent: Chesterton Humberts
If you love beautiful gardens but hate digging, then this 16th century townhouse in the centre of the walled city of Canterbury really should have your name on the deeds. A short stroll from Best Lane takes you to some of the city’s parks including the pretty Three Cities Garden or to the riverside Solly’s Orchard, right in the shadow of the Cathedral, where all the apple varieties have a religious theme. And with absolutely no garden of your own to worry about, all those battles with slugs, weeds and next door’s cat will be a thing of the past. The Grade II listed house is within easy walking distance of the Cathedral and the new Marlowe Theatre. The front door opens directly into a reception room with tiled floor and large inglenook fireplace with a bressumer beam. The sitting room has a brick fireplace with inset gas fire and the kitchen/dining room has a double height ceiling with part glass roof and full length glass panels to one side, cupboards and granite worktops. There is a downstairs cloakroom and a door leading to a right of access at the back. On the first floor are three bedrooms, the largest of which has windows to both the side and back of the property, giving glimpses of the Cathedral. This room has a spectacular vaulted ceiling, wooden floorboards and en suite with fully tiled floor and walls. There is a family bathroom. Bedroom four is on the top floor and is a good sized double room with views of the Cathedral. A home study is also on the top floor. For more information ring the agent on 01227 452780.
