Eastingdown is a charming rural retreat tucked away in a beautiful and rarely available countryside setting, offering seclusion and peace yet highly accessible to Canterbury and the West station. The house backs on to Little Hall Pinetum (a privately owned conservation site) and surrounding woods, a beautifully calm and relaxed place to ramble and explore. Views to the south are of a quintessential English landscape that leads to Canterbury, with clear and impressive views of the Cathedral and Marlowe Theatre.
The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall. The good size sitting room has a dual aspect fireplace with back boiler (providing hot water and central heating in the cooler months whilst a modern oil fired boiler [replaced 2017] supplements the wood-burner in warmer months). To the front is the music room, which provides additional space for relaxation or recreation, and could be utilised as a bedroom. A bright and airy sun room sits to the rear.
At the heart of the house is the substantial open plan kitchen/dining/family room. The kitchen is well fitted with contemporary light grey units, an integrated oven/hob and a breakfast bar. The room also features the other side of the double aspect fireplace and French doors opening to the patio. The utility area comprises two rooms, with an integrated wine fridge and additional space for cooking and storage. A guest cloakroom and a shower room complete the ground floor.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms (three with fitted wardrobes) and a modern bathroom with a corner bath. Bedroom 4 features a sliding wall that allows the room to be completely opened up; the room has fine views of the Cathedral.
This property has 2.5 acres of land.
