Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Two Listed 1930's 'Art Deco' Water Towers, partially converted to form a modernistic house with studio/workshop/storage building and grounds of about 8 acres.


The Lime Works is situated on the outskirts of Faversham, an historic town located between the North Downs and the beautiful Kent Coast. Dating from pre-Roman times and mentioned in the Domesday Book this bustling town has a good range of independent shops, supermarkets and recreational pursuits.
London commuters are well served by road and rail; Faversham's mainline rail station provides services to London St Pancras in 68 minutes. Junction 6 of the M2 is 3 miles away.
Sporting and recreational facilities include: golf at Faversham and Boughton Golf Clubs; boating and fishing on The Swale; and some of the best walking in England, with way-marked routes through the stunning Kent countryside. There are also many places of interest, from country houses and gardens to the UK's oldest brewery.
There is excellent schooling in the area for all age ranges and abilities, including the highly rated Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Faversham, Canterbury College, Kings School
Canterbury, Kent College Canterbury and St Edmunds School in Canterbury, Ashford School and Ashford Friar's Prep School.


The Lime Works is a fascinating Grade II listed building, built in the early 1930s during the 'Art Deco' period and utilised as a functioning water softening plant until 1942.

The property has undergone partial conversion and the opportunity has now arisen for potential purchasers to complete, to their individual requirements (subject to the necessary planning consents), what will be an outstanding, contemporary home.

A well proportioned building, the accommodation is arranged over 4 floors. The ground floor benefits from floor to ceiling windows and a series of spiral staircases lead to the leisure facilities on the first floor and the bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor.

The master bedroom suite will occupy the entire fourth floor and benefits from far reaching views over the grounds. There are two roof terraces, one of which will accommodate a pool.

The Lime Works is approached via wrought iron gates which open to a gravel driveway leading to a generous parking area and underground double garage of circa 331 sq ft. Stone steps flanked by lawns and lavender borders lead to the front door. The house is set in about 8 acres of grounds and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. A useful studio/workshop/storage building of circa 1,257 sq ft lies to the side of the main house.
