Abbey Street, Faversham
A charming 17th century Grade ll Listed cottage, well presented and with tremendous character throughout, situated in arguably the finest medieval street in the heart of Faversham.

A small inner lobby leads to the kitchen and also to a useful cellar with a beamed ceiling with a good head height, a window to street level and a lovely old brick floor.
The kitchen is to the rear of the cottage and has been fitted with a good range of traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around solid wood work surfaces, integrated appliances and a ceramic tiled floor.
There is also just enough space for a small breakfast table and two chairs.
Beyond the kitchen, there is a well appointed, fully tiled bathroom
From the sitting room, a beautiful (if slightly steep) staircase rises to the first floor and a small, central landing.
The master bedroom is to the front of the cottage and is a magnificent room with exposed beams, stripped floorboards and a splendid fireplace with a cast iron fire. The room is particularly generously proportioned and has a large walk-in wardrobe. The second bedroom is also a double room with stripped wood floors and pleasant views over the rear garden.
The rear garden measures approx. 31 ft and has a variety of mature flowers and shrubs including some lovely ornamental grasses. There is also an area of artificial grass with a gravelled section adjacent to it, with attractive railway sleeper style paving slabs. To the rear of the garden, there is a pretty brick paved patio area and an old brick built shed.
