A distinctive modern property in a convenient location

Yew Tree House is a newly built property designed with local vernacular in mind, resulting in a traditional Victorian external appearance and distinctive modern styling internally. The accommodation is bright and spacious, with open-plan reception rooms and communal areas, which gives a superb social aspect to the house, making it an ideal place to entertain family and friends. The gardens have been extensively landscaped to create a number of outdoor “rooms” and include a woodland copse. Canterbury West station is less than a mile away and offers a High Speed train services to London St Pancras in under an hour.

The front door opens to an impressive entrance hall with feature oak staircase with glass balustrade. The double aspect sitting/dining room is a vast space, 37 feet in depth, arranged as a formal dining room with bay window to one end and as a stylish TV/cinema room at the other, with an inset wood-burning stove as a focal point.

The sleek and sophisticated kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and floor units, with seating arranged around a central island. Bi-fold doors slide fully aside to open the space to a decked area, expanding the entertaining space in the fair weather months. A relaxed family seating area is adjacent to the kitchen.

All the ground floor rooms flow into each other, creating a great sense of space and light. This gives flexibility to open up the house for social occasions and family living, as well as to close off certain rooms if peace and quiet is required! A useful study, utility room and a cloakroom complete the accommodation at this level. The solid oak staircase rises to the bright and generous first floor landing. The principal bedroom suite has a walk-in dressing room and an en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms (three en suite) and a family bathroom.

This property has 0.22 acres of land.


Yew Tree House is approached via a tree-lined private drive with generous off-road parking and turning space. The double garage has ample room for two cars and storage. There is potential to create a home office/studio above and Velux windows have already installed.

The stunning, professionally landscaped garden greatly complements the style of the property, offering a variety of different zones to sit and relax in whilst listening to a backdrop of birdsong from the adjacent copse. A large outdoor dining area provides an ideal space for outdoor entertaining and alfresco dining. There is also an area of lawn to the East of the house.


Located in a sought-after residential area close to the city centre, the property is well situated to take advantage of all that Canterbury has to offer, including a fantastic range of shopping, dining, cultural and leisure options. There is a selection of excellent educational facilities in the area in both state and private sectors.

Canterbury benefits from two mainline stations with services to London, with the High-Speed Link to St Pancras International taking under an hour from Canterbury West.

The A2 provides direct access to the nationwide motorway network, and the area has good access to the Continent.


From the Canterbury ring road, follow signs towards Margate. At the Northgate roundabout proceed straight over and continue over the next roundabout, passing Sainsbury's on the left. At the next roundabout proceed across into St Stephen’s Road and over the level crossing. Remain on this road and turn right into Hales Drive just before Ye Olde Beverlie pub. Continue on Hales Drive until it becomes Manwood Avenue. The drive for Yew Tree House will be seen on the right shortly after the right turn for The Terrace. If you reach The Crescent you have gone too far.
