  • A superb 4 bedroom Grade II Listed town house with many period features
  • In the Dane John Gardens close to the City centre
  • Good size front and rear gardens and garage and separate cottage

A superb Grade II Listed town house located in the Dane John Gardens close to the City centre and Canterbury East railway station. 18 Dane John is to be found in the beautiful Dane John Gardens which contains only a handful of elegant homes and sits within approximately 5 acres of lawns, an avenue of lime trees and manicured beds which are all maintained by the City Council and are enclosed by the Roman City walls. The gardens provide a sense of enclosure and escape from the City and yet are within exceptionally easy distance of the modern shopping centre, boutique shops along the Kings Mile and the choice of schools in both the public and private sectors including Kings, St Edmund's, Kent College and Simon Langton Girls' and Boys' Grammar Schools. The Marlowe Theatre and the Westgate Gardens and the Cathedral are also nearby. 18 Dane John is a Grade II Listed terraced town house on four floors believed to date from 1823. The house has light and airy rooms with high ceilings, many period features including fireplaces, sash windows, exposed wooden flooring, wrought-iron railings and a front balcony. The accommodation has gas-fired central heating, good size front garden and a pleasant rear garden. Also included in the sale is a separate cottage which it is believed was once a Monks' retreat and a freehold garage which is located approximately 10 minutes' walk away.
