3 London Road is a handsome Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse, just moments from the centre of historic Canterbury. All the front rooms have charming views of the church opposite, with fascinating views over Canterbury - including the Cathedral and Marlowe theatre - from the higher levels.
Dating from the late 18th century, the property provides a wealth of attractive living space across four levels, with flexible accommodation. There is plenty of character throughout, with elegant original features including sash windows, open fireplaces and ceiling mouldings and cornicing.
Located to the front of the ground floor, the relaxed sitting room welcomes plenty of natural light through two large sash windows and has a cast-iron open fireplace. There is a snug overlooking the courtyard garden, and cloakroom. The lower ground floor has two further reception rooms, currently utilised as a family room and a study.
To the rear of the ground floor is the extensive 27ft kitchen, with plenty of storage in the neatly fitted range of wall and floor units; there is a range cooker and space for all the necessary appliances. At the end of the kitchen there is room for a breakfast table next to a cosy wood-burning stove. French doors from here open onto the garden.
Four double bedrooms are arranged across the first and second floors. The first floor includes a notable Drawing room with an open fireplace and three large sash windows overlooking to church, currently utilised as a bedroom. There is a large family bathroom, which has a corner bathtub and a separate shower unit.
The property opens onto London Road to the front, sitting opposite the historic St Dunstans Church.
To the rear there is a low maintenance walled garden, with paved terracing, which is ideal for al fresco dining. There is a pedestrian gate path leading onto London Road. On street permit parking is available in the adjacent residential roads.
3 London Road is perfectly positioned to enjoy all that Canterbury has to offer, including a wide choice of cultural and leisure facilities, as well as an array of independent shops and high-quality restaurants.
There is an excellent range of well-regarded educational facilities in close proximity to the property, including the independent Kings School, St Edmunds School and Kent College.
Canterbury has two stations with direct rail links to London, with Canterbury West being the closest to the property and from where the High Speed service arrives at London St Pancras in less than an hour.
There are also excellent road links within easy reach, with the A2 connecting directly to the motorway network. The area has good access to the Continent.
From the M2 (Junction 7): Join the A2 towards Canterbury. After about 4.5 miles, take the exit signed to Canterbury. At the traffic lights continue ahead and at the roundabout take the first exit into London Road. No 3 is at the far end, opposite the church.Read all
