Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An exceptional Grade ll Listed period townhouse with generous accommodation spread over four storeys, situated in one of the most prestigious of roads in Faversham. The property dates back to the late medieval era and has retained some beautiful period features including many exposed beams and timbers and an exquisite double chamber cellar which runs the entire depth of the house.

The front door opens into a small but useful entrance hall with wood panelling, a beamed ceiling and a glazed door which opens into the living room. This is a wonderfully light and airy room with a wide sash window looking out onto Abbey Street, an exposed brick chimney breast and a beautiful beamed ceiling.

Stairs rise to the first floor and a door opens into a spacious kitchen/dining room which overlooks the garden.

The kitchen has been fitted with a good range of traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around granite effect work surfaces and a white ceramic sink. The kitchen’s traditional feel is complemented by an array of features such as an exposed brick chimney breast, a beamed ceiling, solid oak flooring and a Victorian style radiator.

A tiled inner lobby provides access to the rear garden and leads to the family bathroom. This has been fitted with a white Victorian style suite including a shower over the bath and is finished with Fired Earth ceramic tiles.

Also accessed from the sitting room is a staircase which descends into a superb converted cellar with two large chambers which are divided by a wonderful central brick archway. This is currently used as a family room and has a lovely beamed ceiling, exposed brickwork and has windows onto both Abbey Street and the rear garden.

On the first floor, there is an impressive master bedroom to the front of the house with a built-in wardrobe and a beamed ceiling, and a second bedroom which is also a good size double room with a huge built-in wardrobe and views over the rear garden. This floor is served by a cloakroom with a white suite and attractive Fired Earth natural stone tiling.

On the second floor, a small landing with a built in storage cupboard leads to two further double bedrooms with wide exposed floorboards, beamed ceilings and views over the towns rooftops.

Furthermore, the vendors have obtained planning consent to sympathetically enhance the property by moving the bathroom to the first floor and adding a stunning glass and oak rear extension to the ground floor.


OUTSIDE:

The rear garden measures approx. 106 ft and is mainly laid to lawn with a flagstone patio area and beautifully planted borders, filled with a variety of mature flowers, shrubs and trees which provide a good degree of privacy. The garden is walled to two sides and has a large timber shed at the very bottom of the garden.


SITUATION:

Abbey Street is a particularly sought after location, lined with numerous historic and listed buildings, making this arguably one of the finest medieval streets in England. It is situated in the heart of this charming market town, which nestles between the rural beauty of the rolling Downs and the sweeping flatlands of the North Kent Marshes.

Faversham has a wide range of high street shops and independent retailers which adorn its attractive High Street and its bustling Market Square. The town also offers excellent leisure facilities with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a large park and recreation ground, a museum and numerous pubs and restaurants. It also has a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, including the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School.

Faversham has a mainline railway station with a regular service to London Victoria, Canon Street and Charing Cross and a high speed rail link to London St Pancras. The nearby M2 motorway gives excellent and fast access to London (approx. 48 miles) and the Cathedral City of Canterbury (approx. 9 miles).
