6 bed Town House
Westwood Drive, , Canterbury, Kent
This stunning crescent of Regency inspired town houses is one of Canterbury’s best kept secrets. Approached via a quiet avenue you suddenly come across the cul de sac that is Westwood Drive with a large area of parkland at the front leading to the river and a private curved driveway servicing all the crescent town houses. Although only built about seven years ago, by Berkeley Homes, from the outside you could be forgiven for thinking these were original Georgian houses as they have been constructed in the traditional manner with aged brickwork and large double glazed sash windows under a slate roof. However, once inside the house, you can begin to appreciate that not only is everything included for modern living, whether you are looking for a permanent home or a truly delightful holiday and weekend retreat, but also the superb quality of the interior specification. This includes beautiful oak doors, engineered oak floors, porcelain tiled floors in the kitchen and bathrooms, Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware as well as underfloor heating and sprinkler, fire detection and alarm systems. This property is absolutely immaculate in every way. It is even more perfect than most show houses and is just ready for a new family to move straight into without having to do anything except install their own furniture. There is a large and elegant dining room that is open to the very well fitted kitchen, but does have discreetly hidden sliding doors between the two rooms so you can close the kitchen off if you want to. This kitchen includes an induction hob, double oven, warming drawer, built in microwave, fridge freezer and an air extractor system, while the dining room has double doors to the lovely large patio and easy to maintain garden. The hallway includes a seperate storage cupboard, where the water softener and meters are located, adjacent to the downstairs cloakroom. There is also a laundry/utility room with built in storage with integrated Miele washing machine and tumble dryer and a large double door cupboard. A glazed door gives access to the garden. On the first floor there is a stunning sitting room, entranced by double doors, that takes advantage of the views across the park and as far as Canterbury Cathedral. A double bedroom, is also located on this floor that is currently laid out as a very contemporary fitted office/study. Adjacent to this, is a seperate bathroom with double shower. What the Owner says:
“We bought the property from new and have really enjoyed living in this lovely home, however it is time to start a new chapter in our lives. It is really quiet and tranquil and the neighbours are delightful and it has always been a great place for entertaining whether that is inside or on the patio. We can walk into the city centre with its historic buildings, schools, colleges, Universities, high street stores, individual shops and restaurants along the river walk to the City. We are likewise in close walking distance of major supermarkets. We are but a ten minute walk to the Canterbury West Rail Station for the high speed train to London, which takes just 54 minutes. We are also well placed for access to the M2 motorway, the port of Dover and the Channel Tunnel for trips to the Continent.”
Sporting and recreational opportunities abound in the area including The Kings School Sports and Gym Facility, the Kingsmead Leisure/Fitness Centre, riding and walking along the extensive footpaths and bridle paths in the area, first class cricket in Canterbury and sailing, bathing and fishing along the nearby coast.
