The arthouse is a Victorian building, towering up above its adjacent properties. During Victorian times this building was used as a fire station where horse drawn fire engines would house themselves in the barn through the archway. The arthouse has been designed in a quirky fun way. The first floor living area is spacious, light with good views out to the city. There’s a modern kitchen providing a good selection of tea, coffee and cereals for guests’ independent use. On the second floor there are two bedrooms. The king room is at the front with a comfortable bed and private bathroom down the hall. The double room is situated at the back with a comfortable bed and private bathroom located downstairs.
The back house is a cedar wood clad building in a modern Scandinavian design. This property is unique to Canterbury. It is tucked away off the main road behind the arthouse. The generous living area has a reception room with two sofas, flat screen T.V, with satellite digital channels, dvd player and music centre with I-pod docking station. There’s a dining area which can seat up to 10 people and a well equipped kitchen with extra seating for four guests. Upstairs there's a spacious open plan bedroom area with a large king size bed & en-suite bathroom, plus a seating area with a pull out sofa bed.
Adjacent to the cedar house is a self- contained garden room which has a king size bed & en-suite. This room can be rented independently or rented additionally to the cedar house therefore opened up into one house. There is a courtyard garden that wraps around the house to give it a very private feel.
