Largish family house. Its location - in Pretoria Road, gives away
its age, since many streets in England were named after South African
places during the the Boer War (late 1890s).
Compare this with the Saint Martin's Road
example, just around the corner and built around the same time.
This house in Pretoria Road is much larger - it is detached, not
in a terrace.
You can see richer details in the solid porch before the door,
with decorated woodwork, and the attractive roof finial at the top
right-hand corner, of a kind typical in houses of that period (though
not so common in Canterbury).
(A finial is 'an ornament crowning a pinnacle or gable'
- see Lever and Harris in the bibliography)
