This delightful and substantial family home is believed to date from the early Victorian era albeit its front elevation is more reminiscent of a Georgian home. It has accommodation arranged over 4 floors including a useful study/sitting room in the basement. On the ground floor it has a fine reception area with double doors dividing the dining and drawing rooms. The kitchen has a Rayburn and plenty of space for family meals: there is also a rear lobby and a cloakroom. The 5 bedrooms are arranged over the 1st and 2nd floors with a family bathroom and an en-suite shower with one bedroom. The property has a wealth of character features including fireplaces and period shutters to the bay window. It has gas fired central heating, via the Rayburn, and secondary double glazing.

Outside the property boasts a superb garden, nearly 90' by 50', with a unique 'fruit barn' providing a really useful outbuilding. This is an excellent location in a conservation area within easy reach of both town and station with a lovely outlook over the Almshouses and their immaculate gardens.

Faversham is one of Englandís most historic and charming towns, nestling between the rural delights of the Kent Downs and the beauty of its coastal wetlands. This picturesque market town has nearly 500 listed buildings, dates from pre-Roman times and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. This is a bustling place with a fine range of independent shops, supermarkets and recreational pursuits. There is excellent schooling across all age ranges and abilities, including the highly rated Queen Elizabeth Grammar school.

Faversham is about two minutes drive from the M2 and has a mainline station with regular commuter services to London (Victoria/Cannon Street and St Pancras HS1), Canterbury and the coast, making it easily accessible.
