To immerse oneself in the joyous bustle of Canterbury City, to have a sense of grandeur to come home to and a place to entertain friends and family, all this drew the owners here.

Standing at one of these stunning windows looking out, the ceiling stretching away above to its nine foot four height (two point eight meters), it's easy to understand how the current owners fell in love with this home.

They were looking for somewhere that would allow them to enjoy the buzz of Canterbury, this stunning walled city that has three buildings inscribed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

There is a passion for life that imbues the air of this stunning part of Kent. Amazing history, stunning architecture, narrow streets with jettied buildings leaning above, water ways threading through and majestic Canterbury Cathedral standing proudly on watch over it all.

Students from all over the country and around the world add their gaiety and vivacity to the streets, restaurants, shops, cafes, pubs, beautiful gardens and theatres.

It was to be immersed within this that was the primary goal, the secondary one was to have a home that would allow them to entertain friends and through the years, this has been one of the joys of living here.

'We did think about opening up the kitchen wall at first,' they tell us, 'but after living here a short while we realised the home works really well as is.'
They did decide to change the bath, removing it and replacing it with a lovely rainfall shower, a delightful way to start or end a day. 'It's so much more practical for a busy working life'. Most people we talk with agree on the benefits of showers over baths, especially when getting ready for work.

Having a living room separate from the dining room is another huge benefit of living here, it provides a different dimension to how you spend your time, how you use space and fireplaces in both rooms provide focal points that, combined with the height of those ceilings, remind you this is somewhere special to be.

This is the middle one of three apartments in this Grade II Listed building, part of Canterbury's rich history in its own way. The stations can be walked to, Waitrose is around the corner, in fact there is no shortage of options to find all manner of items you desire for daily life.
