Sunny Bank, Iffin Lane, Canterbury, CT4
An extremely well presented period home which has been sympathetically extended and updated by the current owners to incorporate the delightful period features with a contemporary style in the popular village of Guston
Traditional and contemporary merge beautifully together, with rooms bathed in the orginal style of the property and areas that have been completely modernised. Overrall this gives a great feeling of style and traditional living. Believed to date from 1740, the cottage offers extensive accommodation and is surprisingly larger than expected. Built over two floors giving plenty of space and flexibility.
Downstairs, there is a traditional living room with an inglenook fireplace and exposed beams. The light and airy dining room has doors leading out to a pretty walled courtyard. The kitchen and utility room are fitted with bespoke solid wood cabinets, with granite work surfaces. There is also a useful study and a cloakroom.
Upstairs the main bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and a door leading to a private sundeck, perfect for those summer evenings to enjoy the surrounding area. This in turn leads onto the upper level of the rear garden. In this area is also an ensuite shower room and a dressing room.
There are three further double bedrooms. Bedrooms 2 and 4 share a luxurious bathroom, and bedroom three has a shower room adjacent. There is also a hidden staircase with its own access to bedroom 4.
Outside there is an integral garage with parking to the front. The rear garden has a walled courtyard on the lower level with a brick built fireplace/bbq. Take the steps leading to the upper level which is laid mainly to lawn with well stocked borders. There is a cabin/garden room which could potentially be that sought after home office and a sun deck giving lovely views over the adjoining farmland.
