10 The Terrace is a superb family house situated in a sought after residential street on the northern side of Canterbury. The surrounding area was once the site of a grand property known as Hales Place. The Terrace is thought to be so called because it is situated in the proximity of what was once the terrace of the mansion, positioned to command views of the city. Built in the 1950s, the house enjoys the generous rooms and large windows often present in properties of this age. The house provides a fabulous home in its current layout but also offers an exciting opportunity to remodel or extend subject to necessary consents.
The front door opens to an entrance hall, off which there is a cloakroom. The sitting room, to the front of the house, is flooded with light, having windows on all aspects and is open plan to the dining room providing an exceptionally generous room. A glazed door leads to a conservatory at the side of the house. Parquet flooring remains throughout this bright space; in the dining room there is the original serving hatch and a mirrored panel lifts to reveal a wonderful bar.
To the rear, a good sized kitchen is neatly fitted with plentiful units and there is space for a table. Adjacent is a breakfast room with doors leading to a utility room and a useful study or fourth bedroom, which enjoys a garden outlook and is served by a shower room. Together with the breakfast room this space offers scope for an annexe arrangement if desired. There is also access to the garage from here.
A spacious staircase rises to the first floor and three generous bedrooms. The principal bedroom is a particularly good size; all have fitted wardrobes. There is a family bathroom and a family shower room.
