On the first floor the property offers a spacious principal bedroom with built-in storage and views towards Canterbury cathedral. An additional double bedroom also has built-in storage. There is also a single bedroom, and a modern family shower room.
There is potential to increase the accommodation by converting the loft space to create another bedroom suite, subject to any necessary consents.
The property is approached over a block-paved path with a well-stocked flower and shrub bed. A covered side walkway gives access to the rear.
The enclosed courtyard garden is a suntrap and ideal for al-fresco dining, with pretty mature flower and shrub beds. There is a timber shed/summer house to one corner.
