1800 House is a Grade II Listed, two storey (plus attic and basement), double fronted, terraced house constructed around 1800 on Dane John Gardens, just inside the late Roman city walls.


The aim of this project is to strip out all of the unsympathetic modern materials and treatments to the house to relish what remains of the 1800s fabric, and also to make minor changes and additions to make the most of the site and orientation of the house.


From the front the house is part of a grand ‘palace’-like terrace, facing onto the elegant Dane John Gardens. At the rear however, it is more of a jumbled cottage (a schizophrenic front/back condition typical of this period) overlooking the Watling Street Car Park.  Our proposal aims to make the best of this situation by emphasizing the views to the front and creating low and high-level private views to the back which look either into the rear walled garden or beyond to the skyline of Canterbury, while obscuring the views into the car park.


The main contractor is BW May, based in Sittingbourne, Kent.

Most of the original joinery had been lost in earlier refurbishments, leaving only fragments in different corners. All of the library shelving, the dado panelling and covings throughout are new, with the details and proportions carefully matching the original with painstaking precision.
