Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Open the front door and immediately you know why you want to buy this home. This living room was a huge factor in the decision making for our clients, just over twenty-five feet of lovely accommodation and something you don't find everywhere.
Surprisingly, it wasn't the feature that drew the owners to look here originally, something else did but this room helped them make their choice.
The goal our clients had set themselves when originally looking was to find a home that embodied tradition, not just in the house but the community around it.
Faversham is the perfect place to look for such an ideal, those who already know the town understand this. A short walk from this home takes you into the town centre. The iconic Guildhall in Market Place is an instantly recognisable landmark and the picturesque streets of historic cottages that lead away from it draw people to this varied and historic townscape.
Walk to the Creek and you find yourself looking over sailing boats, perhaps sitting down to lunch or wandering along to the boatyards that hug the water's edge, beyond them footpaths take you to the Saxon Shoreway, before that you can loop around, through fields of wheat back to Abbey Fields and thence home to this cottage, passing another boatyard and Faversham Joinery, a further reminder of the towns history and purpose.
Cycle Route 1 crosses Westgate Road. The Garden of England section, Dover to London is 119.5 miles long and is part of a national cycle route that can take you all the way to Shetland, now there's a challenge.
Nearby are the Grammar School, a museum, St Mary of Charity church, Tesco supermarket, all sit side by side. At the beginning of Westgate Road you have a corner shop, perfect for everyday convenience. Cross Whitstable Road and immediately opposite is the recreation ground, local residents organised an informal street party here and it is a lovely space to have on your doorstep. There are play areas, tennis courts, rugby club and a wealth of sports clubs train here.
Faversham has a hip feel to it these days, an artistic side that is reflected in the diverse places to go for a meal or for a coffee; exploring the culinary side of Faversham is always a treat and, if you fancy making a walk of it, you can head out to Seasalter and dine at the Michelin starred 'The Sportsman', do plan well ahead and book if you want a table. Closer to home you have Macknade's Farm Shop, and a wealth of interesting coffee and tea shops.
Choosing this home was the fruition of a tough search, 'we were very specific about certain things we wanted and although, when we bought it, it didn't have gas central heating nor did it have a bathroom that suited what we envisaged, the living room was the one that meant we had to say yes. The open space was a revelation in comparison to many of the other homes we looked at and combined with the ease of walking into the town centre, well here we are!'
Now they have a home with gas central heating, a lovely bathroom and a modern kitchen, we love the choice of tiles by the way!
It is a family home, a busy home, one where there is a perfect space under the stairs for a desk, the office at home. Life revolves around the fireplace, a great focal point and lovely traditional feature, there's space for a dining table so this becomes a multipurpose living room and does it very well. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, nooks and crannies for storage and outside, to the rear, the garden is a very easy space to enjoy and maintain. A shed resides there crossing the garden, the remaining area works superbly for a place to sit and enjoy time with friends and pots and tubs add colour to suit the season.
This is a real home, one that is all about enjoying life in a beautiful and historic town. Once here, whether you work locally, drive or commute somewhere via train, it is a brilliant place to start and finish your day.
