Bullbeggars House is a light filled and exceptionally well maintained 4 bedroom family house, built in 1976 and having been lovingly maintained. It is set in a tucked away location to the north of the Cathedral City of Canterbury, close to the University of Kent and as such is within exceptionally easy access of the City and Canterbury West which offers HSR services to London (St Pancras 56 mins).
The property is designed and offers light accommodation due to the large picture windows fitted to the majority of rooms. These offer expansive views on to the garden. Particular features include an architectural window to the kitchen, a floor to ceiling window to the study, built in cupboards to 2 bedrooms, a dressing area to the principal bedroom and large garage/workshop. The property offers immaculately maintained family living set on the outskirts of a thriving City.
GROUNDS AND GARDENS
The house is set in a good position on its plot, offering a good size paved parking and turning area to the front providing access to the garaging, which is also partly laid to lawn and planted with hedging and shrubs. To the rear, the garden slopes gently to the hedge and fence enclosed boundary, there is a paved area adjoining the house and a useful part paved and gravelled area to the side providing a seating area. There is also a bespoke built summerhouse.
The property is situated on the outskirts of the City and is within exceptionally easy access of both HSR services from Canterbury West, the University of Kent and a variety of local shops and schools. The City itself offers an excellent range of shops including a shopping centre, together with a variety of restaurants, the new Marlowe Theatre and recently refurbished Beaney House of Art & Knowledge. There are a wide choice of highly regarded schools in both the private and public sectors, including Kings, St Edmunds, Kent College and Simon Langton girls and boys.
