Virtual tour available - An elegant Grade II listed townhouse within Canterbury’s historic city wall

16 Dane John is a superb Grade II listed end of terrace townhouse in an enviable location opposite Dane John Gardens. Dating from 1823, this charming home has been altered very little since its construction and retains attractive period features, including original fireplaces and cornicing, a cantilevered staircase and sash windows.

The property is arranged over four floors. On the ground floor is the bright and airy dining room with wood flooring, a feature fireplace and a large sash window with views out over the Dane John Gardens. An archway leads through to an equally bright kitchen fitted with traditional cream-coloured base and wall units; there is a built-in double oven and gas hob. Also at this level is a shower room and access to the landscaped courtyard garden.

The basement features a spacious utility and a study, ideal for homeworking or as a fourth bedroom. There are also two useful storage rooms.

The elegant sitting room is situated on the first floor. The room has a feature fireplace and double doors leading to a Juliet-style balcony, with charming elevated views over Dane John Gardens. Adjacent is a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes. Along the landing is family bathroom with separate WC

The remaining two bedrooms are on the second floor, comprising the large principal bedroom and a second double bedroom which benefits from an en suite WC and a sink. The study could be utilised as a fourth bedroom, if desired.


There is a quaint, well-kept front garden featuring mature shrubs and a paved pathway leading to the entrance.

To the rear is an attractive courtyard garden, with gravel seating areas and paths, well-tended flowerbeds and a small water feature. There is a workshop at the end of the garden for additional storage.


16 Dane John sits within Canterbury’s historic walls and in minutes of the bustling city centre. Nearby amenities range from independent shops and restaurants to entertainment options like the Marlowe Theatre. Several supermarkets are close by, including a Waitrose and an M&S Food Hall. Canterbury has a number of well-regarded schools in both state and independent sectors, including The King’s School, Kent College, St Edmund’s School and the Simon Langton grammar schools.

Canterbury is well-connected to London by rail and an easy drive from the south coast via the A28 or A2. The area has good access to the Continent. As well as having access to Dane John Gardens for recreational use, the property is close to several sports clubs and the Kingsmead Leisure Centre. Canterbury is packed with heritage sites and museums, including Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey and the Roman Museum.


The property is best reached on foot, leaving your car in one of the city’s car parks. Dane John Gardens are widely signposted in the city and are adjacent to the bus station.
