About the property

Description
11 Manwood Avenue is a super opportunity to purchase a light and spacious 5 bedroom detached house, set in an elevated position on the desirable north side of the City, within exceptionally easy access of both the University of Kent and High Speed Rail services from the west station. There is a pretty tiered garden to the rear, with outbuilding previously used as a home office and in/out driveway to the front providing access to an integrated garage.

Main House
The house is believed to date from the 1930’s, having been extended and enhanced to provide spacious family accommodation. Particular features include a triple aspect sitting room with wood burner and open plan kitchen/diner – both with doors opening on to the rear garden, solar panels generating a yearly income and views to the rear across the garden and rooftops and out towards the school playing fields.

Grounds & Gardens
The property is approached via an in/out driveway which provides access to the garage. The gardens are mainly to the rear and have been terraced to provide a paved area connected to the house, with steps down to a pergola covered dining area and access to the private lawned area at the bottom. This area is well screened by laurel hedging and there are two sheds, one of which is fully insulated and is linked to power, light and telephone. This was previously used as a home office and is presented in good order.

Surrounding Areas & Local Amenities
Set on the outskirts of the Cathedral City of Canterbury, there are a variety of local shops and school nearby in Hales Place, including a chemist, Post Office stores, dental practice and St Stephen’s Junior and Infant School (Ofsted Good). The highly regarded University of Kent campus offers a variety of entertainment including the Gulbenkian for theatre, cinema, stage, gallery and café/bar, the newly opened Colyer-Fergusson Concert Hall and sports centre. Kingsmead Leisure Centre, King’s Recreation Centre, Sainsbury’s and St Dunstan’s are also within easy reach. The City itself offers an excellent range of shops including a modern shopping centre and boutique shops, together with a variety of international restaurants, the new Marlowe Theatre and refurbished Beaney House of Art & Knowledge. There are a wide choice of highly regarded schools in both the private and public sectors, including King’s, St Edmund’s, Kent College and Simon Langton girls and boys.

Communications
The property is also well placed for access to HSR services to London (St Pancras 56 mins), and for access on to the A2 London to Dover road, which in turn provides access on to the M2 and A20/M20. There are various bus and coach services available from the City Centre.
