A charming Victorian three bedroom house which has been much improved and is brimming with character. The property is situated within a few minutes' walk of Faversham station and is within easy reach of Faversham's bustling town centre, making this an incredibly well-situated family home.
A upvc double glazed front door opens into an entrance hall, with exposed floorboards and stairs to the first floor. There are two well proportioned reception rooms, a pleasant sitting room to the front of the house and a spacious dining room to the rear. The sitting room has a cast iron fireplace with an open fire and a upvc triple glazed bay window with a deep window seat, with storage beneath it. Exposed floorboards continue into the dining room, which also has a lovely feature fireplace with Victorian style tiling and an ornate wooden surround.
The kitchen is also to the rear of the house and has been fitted with an excellent range of modern wall and floor units, set around granite effect work surfaces, a ceramic sink and drainer and attractive wall and floor tiling. A set of double glazed French doors lead to the garden, whilst another door leads to a well appointed cloakroom with a modern and stylish suite.
On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to three, good size bedrooms (two of which are generous doubles) and the family bathroom. This has been fitted with a modern white suite including a shower over the bath and is finished with ceramic wall and floor tiles.
The house is set back from the road behind a small front garden, enclosed by a low level brick wall.
The rear garden measures approximately 35 ft and is mainly laid to lawn with raised beds, enclosed by brick and timber borders. There is a large timber barn-style shed and a useful gated rear access.
