First time on the market in almost half a century, this Cottage is a slice of English history, often depicted on postcards of the City of Canterbury and of the 'Garden of England'. Situated in the heart of Canterbury, 'Rosiers' is enviably positioned overlooking the River Stour.
From all the rooms facing the river you have splendid views of the imposing Westgate Towers, one of the original gateways into the City, the ancient Holy Cross Church, and the magnificent Canterbury Cathedral spires.
WHAT THE OWNER SAYS
We have loved living here as it offers the very best one could wish for; in addition to history on our doorstep, a few minutes walk away is the Marlowe Theatre providing year round fabulous choice of drama, musicals and dance, whilst the Curzon cinema offers the latest classical and avant-garde films, and of course there are the unforgettable wonderful concerts in the Cathedral, and delightful events in the Dane John/Westgate Gardens.
The City Centre offers all the latest eat in/take out food choices, cafes, clubs, pubs, bars, bistros and, at the last count, 21 different cuisines which meet the needs of a diverse and vibrant community of residents and visitors.
Just around the corner in St Dunstan's village there is the local butcher, fruit and vegetable shop plus a handy corner shop Sainsbury's or for local Kent Farmers produce the 'Goods Shed' is a cornucopia of delicious things to sample at the weekend.
Canterbury West Station and the High Speed train to London is just a five minute walk, ideal for commuting or getting the last train back after a West End show.
The River Stour runs through the City and provides eyecatching beauty - kingfishers, egrets, fresh trout in the water, and foxes along the route. This is the Garden of England, orchards, meadows and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty await - a dog walker's paradise!
A courtyard is found to the rear of the property with a garage just a short walk away in an adjoining road.
