Full property description

An elegant detached Victorian villa, set within lovely mature walled gardens, along with off road parking, conveniently located within easy reach of Faversham’s mainline station and bustling town centre. Clifton Villa has retained some wonderful period features, alongside a generosity of space and proportion synonymous with properties of this era. However, the property now offers an ideal opportunity to modernise and possibly extend (subject to planning consent) this once grandiose period home.

The property is entered via a handsome front door with ornate decorative shutters, set beneath a fanlight, which opens into an entrance hall with an attractive tiled floor. From here, another door opens into a spacious reception hall with an elegant staircase rising to the first floor. There is a splendid sitting room to the front of the house, with a tall bay window, picture rails, cornicing and a fireplace with a marble surround. An opening leads to another spacious reception room, with similar period features and French doors, which open into a conservatory at the rear of the house.

Also to the rear of the house, there is a breakfast room with a fitted dresser and a kitchen. This has been fitted with a range of wall and floor units, set around rolled top work surfaces, integrated appliances and a ceramic tiled floor. Beyond this, an inner lobby provides access to the rear garden, as well as a large cloakroom/WC. A staircase descends from the reception hall to a dual chamber cellar, currently used for storage, however offering excellent potential for conversion into additional accommodation (subject to the necessary consents).

On the first floor, a beautiful galleried landing leads to three bedrooms, two generously proportioned doubles and one single bedroom. At the end of the landing, there is a large shower room and separate WC.


The house is set back from the road behind an attractive front garden with a low level brick wall. A driveway provides parking for one car, whilst a gated side access leads to the rear garden. This measures approximately 92 ft and has been beautifully planted with a wide array of mature trees and shrubs. Adjacent to the house, there is a large patio area, with good potential for a rear extension (subject to planning consent). The garden is walled to all sides and enjoys a surprising degree of privacy for a property with such a central location within the heart of the town.


The property is conveniently situated in Newton Road, which enjoys an extremely central location, within easy walking distance of Faversham’s mainline railway station and thriving medieval town centre.

The charming market town of Faversham has a wide range of high street shops and independent retailers which adorn its attractive high street and its bustling market square. The town also offers excellent leisure facilities with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a large park and recreation ground, a museum and numerous pubs and restaurants.

It has a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, one of which is the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. Faversham has a mainline railway station with a regular service to London Victoria, Cannon Street and Charing Cross and a high speed rail link to London St. Pancras. The nearby M2 motorway gives excellent and fast access to London.

The city of Canterbury is approximately 10 miles away this has a vibrant city centre, which has a wide array of High Street brands alongside independent retailers, cafes and international restaurants and offers a selection of sporting, leisure and recreational amenities, including the Marlowe Theatre.

The seaside town of Whitstable, famous for its seafood and annual oyster festival held at the vibrant harbour and picturesque quayside, also has a variety of shops, boutiques and restaurants, a good selection of primary and secondary schools and excellent leisure facilities and is 8 miles away.
