Upper Harbledown, Canterbury
2 bedroom house - terraced
Would you love a characterful 19th century cottage on the outskirts of Canterbury and all its amenities? Would a house with easy access to the A2 be great for your commute? Would a home which is ready to move into but has potential for those who want to put their own stamp on a property, be of interest?
This charming, mid-terrace cottage in a village setting has all of that.
Simply park your car on the street outside and turn the key in the lock of your new home. You enter the small but practical kitchen with ample storage. The downstairs layout means that the light and spacious living/dining area offers a view through French doors, onto a courtyard garden lined with roses and herbs. This room has plenty of storage with a cleverly designed wall unit hiding a handy pull down desk for home working.
The enclosed south facing patio is perfect for puppy training and al fresco dining in the summer. Beyond the gate, you will find a pretty, easy to maintain cottage garden which is a haven for wildlife. Follow the winding path that leads down to the stream dividing your home from the village green and allotments. This garden is home to butterflies, robins, newts in a little pond and even has a visiting owl! The really exciting thing about the garden is that it offers potential for you to extend, subject to planning, with plenty more space for outbuildings such as a home office or studio - whatever suits your needs!
The recently refurbished family bathroom is a modern and comfortable space to soak the stresses of the day away. There is a digital shower that sets the temperature perfectly every time! To the first floor you have a light and airy double bedroom that overlooks the garden and a second single bedroom.
With orchards and acres of woodland only moments from your front door and a tranquil cottage garden, this home brings you all of the charm of country living with all of the perks of a city on your doorstep.
