This stylish 150 year old wool store has been sympathetically converted into a four bedroom property and has the perfect location of being under half a mile to both Canterbury West train station and the cultural city centre of Canterbury. The property was converted just over 20 years ago with a modern interior yet still maintains plenty of character. The entrance hall takes you through to the kitchen/dining room with a stunning glass wall where the old wool carts would enter the building. This room has been designed with a fashionable industrial feel to it. It is fitted with a mix of stainless steel and solid wood units and worktops. There is plenty of storage with integrated cooking appliances and space for a fridge freezer. There is a breakfast bar for quick and convenient dining as well as an area with ample space for a dining table and chairs. On the other side of the entrance hall you will find the separate utility room that has a sink with a mixer tap, more storage units and space and plumbing for both a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The entrance hall has been fitted with floor to ceiling storage and a small desk area. Completing the ground floor is the downstairs cloakroom. The living room on the first floor is beautifully lit as it is partly fitted with steel grate flooring that allows the light from the glass wall to shine up through the whole of the house. One of the walls in the living room has been fitted with a gorgeous bookshelf that reaches all the way up to the roof. Also on the first floor is one of the bedrooms and the family bathroom that is fitted with a fresh white suite with a shower over the bath and plenty of cupboards for storage which a bathroom usually lacks. Up on the second floor there are four Velux windows that light the master bedroom and a further two bedrooms. All bedrooms have been fitted with bespoke wardrobes and the 3 smaller rooms have lovely wooden fitted furniture that include beds and desks.
The property is located in the heart of the popular St Dunstan's and is only 0.2 miles walk to Canterbury West train station which has the high speed service that takes you to London St Pancras in under an hour. St Dunstan's has become a vibrant area of Canterbury and has a Sainsbury's local, a Butchers, an international greengrocer and a selection of Cafe's and independent shops. Within 0.2 miles of the property there is The Bishops Finger pub, The Falstaff Inn, The Pound and the renowned farmers market 'The Goods Shed' is just 0.3 miles away. The property is conveniently located for anyone one working at the University Of Kent which is just a 1.2 miles walk away. The historic city centre located through the Westgate Towers has an array of shops and boutiques, along with fine dining and restaurants serving dishes from across the globe. The Marlowe Theatre attracts acts from around the world and the Cathedral which is a world heritage site completes Canterbury's unique experience.
This property is approached under an archway and the main front door is located just before the wooden gate for vehicle access. Through the wooden gates you will find parking for several cars. There is a cute patio area just outside of the kitchen door which would be ideal for enjoying breakfast in the sunshine. There is a detached double garage with power and light connected. On the second floor of the garage there is a work from home studio with it's own entrance up an external flight of stairs. Next to the garage there is a courtyard garden perfect for alfresco dining and socialising with friends. The current owners had planning permission (now expired) to convert the garage into a single dwelling which would be perfect for an Air BNB opportunity.
