Full property description

An enchanting Grade ll listed detached farmhouse, set within a generous 0.28 acre plot of beautiful mature gardens, and situated in a picturesque setting of Davington, just a short walk from the market town of Faversham. Davington farmhouse dates back to the 16th century and was formerly a working farm which was part of the Syndale Estate. It is bursting with period features, such as exposed beams, stripped floorboards, fireplaces, and original latch-key doors. This characterful property has stayed with one family for over 60 years, it has a wealth of history, spacious quirky layout, and with the potential to make further improvements this would make a wonderful home.

The handsome front door sits central to the farmhouse and opens into a stunning sitting room with inglenook fireplace, exposed beams, and original windows, this really set the scene for the rest of the house. To either side of this room one will find two other reception rooms each with a stunning stain glass arched windows and grand fireplaces with oak bressummers. Off the sitting room there is a downstairs bathroom decorated in rich wood panelling and artistic ceramic tiles.

To the rear of the dining room an inner lobby leads to a traditional styled kitchen with decorative quarry floor tiles, exposed brickwork, and windows that frame the attractive garden. To the left of the lobby there is an area which was extended and converted in the 1970s to offer accommodation for relatives, this was formerly the scullery and has been adapted to offer a small kitchen and shower room, there is also a stairs case to the first floor.

The first floor is reached by two staircases at either end of the house which leads to three generously proportioned double bedrooms all with attractive fireplaces and fitted wardrobes. A smaller bedroom and WC can be found at the rear, this could become the main upstairs bathroom as plumbing is already in place.

To the second floor one will find another double bedroom, and a large vaulted loft room with a skylight.

OUTSIDE:

The front garden is enclosed by a pretty picket fence and has a pathway leading down to the main front door, to the left of the property a driveway sits directly in front of the double garage.

At the rear of the property an established garden offers an array of established shrubs and mature trees that offer a delicate amount of shade. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with areas for growing vegetables and a delightful patch of wild meadow, the garden has held many parties and family weddings and is a wonderful asset to this beautiful family home.
