The Lime Works is an impressive and highly individual conversion of two water towers into a spacious and contemporary home. This fascinating Grade II listed building was built in the early 1930s and was a functioning water softening plant until 1942. The current owners acquired the property in 2005, and have sympathetically converted, restored and refurbished the building, with the emphasis on attention to detail and specification. It is a wonderfully proportioned home; the spacious accommodation is well suited to entertaining on a large scale and caters equally for family living.

Internally, the accommodation is arranged over 4 floors. The ground floor benefits from floor to ceiling windows, culminating in light and elegant living spaces. A series of spiral staircases lead to the leisure facilities on the first floor and the bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor. The stunning master bedroom suite occupies the entire fourth floor and benefits from far reaching views over the grounds. There are two roof terraces, one of which accommodates the pool and both which provides impressive outdoor entertaining spaces.

Works are still ongoing at the property with the purpose of bringing the house to 90% completion which will allow the buyer to design and specify the final 10% by way of arrangement with the current construction company or with the buyer appointing their own designer and contractors.

Features of Particular Note Include:

o Dining Room with triple height void
o Heated, roof top swimming pool
o Hand crafted concrete beds and baths
o Gym suite, including sauna and plunge pool
o Integral cinema room
o Motion sensor lighting throughout

The Lime Works is situated on the outskirts of Faversham which is one of England's most historic and charming towns, and is located between the rural delights of the North Downs and the beautiful Kent Coast. This picturesque market town dates from pre-Roman times nd is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is a bustling town with a fine 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 in the area 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 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 across 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 approached via electric wrought iron gates which open to a gravel driveway that leads to a large parking area and underground double garage of circa 331 sqft. Stone steps flanked by lawns and lavender borders lead to the front door. The house is set in 8 acres of grounds and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. A useful storage building of circa 1,257 sq ft lies to the side of the main house and could be suitable for a range of alternative uses, subject to the necessary planning consents.
