West Street, Faversham
A magnificent Grade ll Listed medieval house, with almost 2400 sq. ft of extensive accommodation spread over three floors, along with mature gardens and private parking, conveniently situated in the heart of Faversham town centre. We believe the property dates back to the 14th century and displays a host of exceptional period features throughout. However, the property has been beautifully maintained and has seen numerous improvements over the years, creating a superb fusion of period style and modern convenience.
The front door opens into a charming reception room, with a bow bay window and a heavily beamed ceiling. From here, a door leads to a useful cellar, ideal for storage, whilst another door leads to a splendid drawing room. This has a wealth of exposed beams and timbers, a great ceiling height and an exposed brick chimney breast with a wood burning stove and a flagstone hearth.
To the rear of the house, there is a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, with stable doors to and lovely views over the gardens. The kitchen has been fitted with an excellent range of traditionally styled units, set around oak work surfaces, a twin Belfast sink, a pantry and an attractive ceramic tiled floor.
A bespoke cherry wood staircase, with ornately carved spindles rises to a galleried landing on the first floor. There are two generously proportioned double bedrooms on this floor, one at the front of the house and one to the rear. The rear bedroom has a dual aspect with some wonderful mullioned windows. Completing the first floor accommodation, there is a well-appointed bathroom with a double ended bath and shower and an impressive study/music room, with exposed beams, wood panelling and extensive fitted shelving.
On the second floor, another galleried landing leads to two double bedrooms, each with beautiful beamed and vaulted ceilings. The main bedroom is to the rear of the top floor and is an especially good size double room, with ample built-in storage and a stunning en-suite wet room. This has a walk-through shower area, a stone circular basin and a beautiful free-standing bath, alongside natural stone wall and floor tiles.
The rear garden measures approximately 57 ft and has been beautifully planted with a wide variety of mature trees, flowers and shrubs. This not only creates a tremendous sense of privacy, but also provides a wonderful backdrop to this fine period home. Adjacent to the house, there is a paved patio area, whilst to the rear of the garden, there is a timber shed and a gate, which opens onto a gravelled parking area which provides off road parking for two cars.
The property enjoys an extremely central and convenient position, nestled in the medieval heart of Faversham town and within easy reach of its many amenities.
