The Hartshorn is a traditional 1930s property with characteristic bay windows, panelled internal doors and staircase, as well as a distinctive stained-glass panel within the front door. The property is located on the most sought after residential road in Canterbury, close to excellent schools and a mile from the city centre. The property benefits from a garage and off-road parking.

A spacious and light double-aspect sitting room, with adjoining dining area, is accessed from the central reception hall. Also accessed from the hall is the bright kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of wall and base level units. There is space for informal dining whilst enjoying the outlook over the pretty garden, which can be accessed via a door from the kitchen. There is a useful ground floor shower room that doubles as a laundry room.

The staircase rises to the first floor accommodation, which comprises six bedrooms (two with bay windows) and a family bathroom, fitted with a bath and shower.

Many houses on Ethelbert Road have been significantly improved and enlarged in recent years. The Hartshorn is a fine family home. It also offers great potential to buyers who are looking to further enlarge and improve the house having obtained the necessary consents.


A low brick-wall fronts the street and the property is approached via a pathway on one side, with a gravelled driveway to the other, leading to the integral garage with a useful store room to the rear.

The front garden has an area of lawn with borders containing evergreen hedging and mature shrubs, and there are pretty climbing plants to the house elevations.

To the rear a paved terrace adjoins the kitchen and enjoys a south-easterly aspect. A pathway leads through an avenue of trees to the end of the garden, where there is a greenhouse and beds well-suited to planting vegetables. The garden contains an interesting variety of shrubs and perennial plants, as well as a central lawn.


The Hartshorn is situated close to the heart of the city of Canterbury, which offers a wide range of cultural, sporting and recreational amenities. In particular, there is an excellent range of educational facilities in both the independent and state sectors. Opportunities for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling and horse riding are available on the Kent Downs (AONB), which is renowned for its stunning landscape. The nearby A2 has direct dual carriageway access to the motorway network. Canterbury has two railway stations with services to Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street. The High Speed service to London St Pancras from Canterbury West takes just under an hour. The area has good access to the Continent.


From the Canterbury ring road, turn onto the Old Dover Road, located between the police station and fire station. Continue along this road, crossing two sets of traffic lights. After about 0.5 miles beyond the second set of traffic lights, turn right into Ethelbert Road. The Hartshorn (no. 34) will be found on the left hand side.
