Property description

This fascinating Grade II Listed property was originally built in 1839 but in more recent times became a derelict building. It was a brick shell when the current owners bought it in 2015 but the awe-inspiring new interior has been constructed inside a steel structure, so it became a new build inside a Grade II Listed frame with an icw 10 year warranty.

The breath taking open plan interior has a double height ceiling, a plethora of original Georgian arched sash windows and black stone flooring that leads you past the curved wall cloakroom and the fabulous solid black walnut and solid bronze spiral staircase to the 1909 designed kitchen with its Brazilian quartz covered worktop, Lacanche cooker and adjacent fitted utility room. There is a fascinating dining area with a barrel vaulted walnut ceiling, beautiful shelving, a ‘Marilyn Monroe lips' hanging log burner, a piano/cocktail cabinet and archways to a study area. The dual aspect sitting room has oak flooring, bi-fold doors to the terrace and a unique multi-curved doorway to the study.

The three en suite bedrooms on the first floor have ‘floating' ceilings to allow light from the high arched multi-pane windows including bedroom 1 with its large dressing room, cloakroom and bathroom incorporating a Kohler stone bath. 150 year old wood panelling is used to create two double en suite bedrooms on the second floor including one with four bespoke bunks. Outside there is an Indian paved terrace with shrub beds, a hot tub, an Iroko covered shed housing the water tanks, two parking spaces and an ev charging point.

This property includes heat pumps and a heat recovery system and through the drhi scheme the ground source heat pumps receive a government subsidy of £4400 per annum until 2026 while the mhvr heat recovery system LED lights means a very cost efficient home.

What the Owner says:
"It has been a ‘labour of love' to create this wonderful home and not only restore the building to its former glory but design a unique interior. However we feel it is time to take on a new project. We are close to Canterbury Cathedral and a short distance from the city centre with its historic buildings, shops, pubs and eateries.

If you want to get to London, it is only half a mile to walk to Canterbury West station (longer by car) where the fast train will transport you to St Pancras in under an hour and it is not far from the A2 for Dover and Folkestone for trips to the Continent."
