Located within the City walls of Canterbury and steeped in history, this fascinating black and white Grade II Listed property was originally built in 1640. It is believed to have been the merchant's house for the nearby tannery and subsequently became a local pub (The Royal Exchange Inn) while in recent times it has been transformed into a stunning family home. You cannot fail to be impressed by the gorgeous kerb appeal with its first floor overhang, attractive front door and of course the signature brick and black and white exterior and it will make you impatient to see what lies beyond the period front door. Unique character and charm are the assets that set this property apart from those around it and this is evident wherever you look. It is beautifully illustrated in the delightful lounge with its exposed ceiling beams, feature brick chimney breast and fireplace, half height paneled walls and a door to the delightful courtyard garden where you can enjoy the sunshine and entertain friends and family to al fresco dining. The modern kitchen is ideal for today's chef catering for friends and family. It includes attractive units housing a built-in oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and wine cooler while what was probably the original outside ‘privy' has been converted into a modern laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a spacious cellar that is ideal for storage, while on the first floor you will find the family bathroom and two double bedrooms including the main bedroom with a Victorian fireplace, exposed beams and built in wardrobes and a second bedroom with charming views over parts of Old Canterbury. There are also plenty of storage facilities available as well as a walk-in laundry cupboard. The second floor includes a shower room, a gorgeous double bedroom with built in cupboards, exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling as well as a single bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, fitted bedroom furniture and plenty of eaves and cupboard storage. Residents parking is available in the nearby carpark.

What the Owner says:
We fell in love with this unique property the moment we saw it. Although it needed renovating and modernising, we were happy to bring it back to its former glory. It has been a great family home for us to always come back to when we have been in the UK, however our needs have changed and we hope another family will be able to love it as much as we have.

It has always been said that location is the key to any property and if you can add character and history then you have the whole package. This is very well illustrated with this delightful home in the very heart of Canterbury. It's a wonderful base for any visitors and tourists wanting to explore the delights of the city. However, if you live here full time it's great to be able to stroll down the road to the shops, pubs and eateries as well as meeting friends and family for a coffee or a visit to the theatre without needing to take the car or even get on a bus. Walk 5 minutes in the other direction and you are in the countryside alongside the river and water meadows, with endless running, walking and cycling tracks. At the same time if you want to get to London the fast train from Canterbury West will transport you to St Pancras in under an hour and it is not far from the A2 for Dover and Folkestone for trips to the Continent.
