Rose Lane, Stelling Minnis, CT4
Positioned within the city walls, this three double bedroom town house with gated parking and smally courtyard is a stand out home. Blending perfectly with the surroundings yet built less than 20 years ago, recently refurbished it is a rare city home with finesse and style.
Fitting perfectly in to the historic centre of Canterbury yet built less than 15 years ago, this 3 double bedroom town house, with parking and courtyard garden must surely be the perfect package for a city home.
Throughout the house the curved front elevation provides a welcome change from the modern square box approach often created by developers. Sweeping lines build a feeling of space and light in the main living space which has access out to the courtyard and parking.
On the first floor of the three storey town house are two bright double bedrooms that make either perfect family accommodation or, one could potentially be guest room accommodation and the other a home office. There is also a family shower room on this level.
Take the stairs one more short flight and you reach a master floor, embracing the shape of the building and its lofty position you have roof top views, built in wardrobes and a fitted en-suite shower room. With privacy even from the rest of the house, this is certainly a personal haven to retire to.
The current owners have maintained and updated the house to a good standard.
To the rear a tiny city courtyard provides a little space for that alfresco coffee and leads through to a gated parking area with private parking for one car.
Langton House is somewhat of a rarity, it is a modern easy to live with build, in a traditional style with parking and within the city walls. Large enough to be a main home yet low maintenance enough to act as a UK base for those away regularly.
The Cathedral city of Canterbury, with high speed main line link to London of less than one hour, shops, restaurants and a thriving arts & music scene is fast becoming a south east hot spot. Educationally there are a handful of well respected fee paying schools as well as highly regarded grammar and state schools close by plus three universities. Road access to the motorway network and channel ports is near by but whilst nearly every modern convenience is within walking distance.
There is a communal charge for the management of the parking area which is £528 a year. The property and car park space are freehold.
