An attractive large family home close to the city centre

Situated a short distance from the city centre and just 0.7 of a mile from Canterbury West station, 40 Whitstable Road is a large, detached property which has been thoughtfully renovated by the current vendors, and is well-presented throughout, with neutral decor and high-quality detailing.

The sitting room has been expanded to create an impressive 28.5ft space featuring real wood flooring and two attractive open fireplaces. Double doors divide this room from the dining area, but can be opened up so that almost the entire ground floor is open-plan. The expansive open-plan kitchen, breakfast room and dining room is located at the rear of the property, with two sets of glazed double doors opening out to the patio area. The bright and spacious kitchen features traditional flagstone flooring, cream Shaker-style units, a butler sink and wooden counter tops.

The flexible accommodation offers the option of having two ground floor rooms, for example as a study, snug or similar. There is also a shower room and cloakroom on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are four well-proportioned bedrooms, and a stylish family bathroom with roll top bath and large separate shower unit.


A path leads through an established front garden to the main entrance of the property, with a hedge and semi-mature tree offering privacy from the street. The driveway provides parking for up to three cars. The appealing exterior of the building features climbing greenery.

To the rear of the property, a paved patio area offers the perfect spot to enjoy dining outdoors. The good-sized garden features an area of lawn, with a paved pathway along one side and high wall to the rear boundary. A mature tree offers some pleasant shade. At the end of the garden is a summer house.


The property 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.

Canterbury has two stations with direct rail links to London, with Canterbury West being the closest to the property. The High Speed train will take you to London St Pancras in less than an hour. There are also excellent road links within easy reach, as the A2 links directly to the motorway network. Ashford International and the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone provide regular Eurostar and Shuttle services to the Continent.
