Our Time Here -
The Vendor's View - I bought the property as a House of Multiple Occupation and converted it back into a large family home. The lady who owned the place previously had turned it into a hostel and so it was a bit of a mess when I bought it, but beneath it all was a lovely house and the neighbours were quite glad that I was going to be making it into a home again!
It's an amazing 140 year-old, 5 storey Victorian property in a row of six or seven terraced houses. They've all been kept as family homes, which is unusual for houses of this size and it's a really nice little community of young families. When I moved in I went and said hello to the neighbours to tell them I was rescuing the house; they couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming. I was given the details of a local Canterbury based builder, who had worked on two of the neighbours properties, and he completely renovated the house for me with all the original features. He restored everything he could, and replaced everything that needed replacing!
Faversham is a lovely place to live. There is a market 3 days a week with lots of independent shops and many different pubs, as well as the Shepherd Neame Brewery. It's a proper English market town with its own unique identity. There is always something to do or an event going on. The situation is ideal for a growing family, with excellent schools in the local area and great transport links.
It's a real family home, full of space and actually its a little too much for us! I particularly like the kitchen/diner, which was originally three rooms, and has been knocked through into one huge room at one end. It's a nice, social space, great for entertaining and our son likes spending time down here with his friends while we are in the sitting room upstairs. We tend to live on the three level floors of the property, and my son has a drum studio set up on the fifth floor, which can't be heard at all from the lower floors! We are looking to move up north now, and I know we'll miss the house a lot, especially somewhere to put my son's drums!
