Full property description
A substantial Victorian property situated in a sought-after location of Faversham just minutes to the train station. Willowmore offers over 2500 sq. ft of accommodation that is brimming with period features such as original fireplaces, stripped floorboards, and stunning cornicing. Willowmore was once used as a Bed & Breakfast and not only offers six bedrooms and three bathrooms, but the downstairs is spacious and versatile with an opportunity to make further enhancements.
A stained glass Victorian front door welcomes you into a stunning entrance hall with huge high ceilings, an archway with intricate corbels, and exposed floorboards. To the right one will find a formal sitting room which has a feeling of grandeur with its open fireplace, ornate ceiling rose, original cornicing and bay window. First impressions set the scene for the rest of the house as these period features flourish throughout.
There is another reception room that benefits from floor to ceiling French doors that lead to the veranda on the east side of the house. It is currently used as the childrens music and playroom but could equally become a formal dining room or be integrated with the current kitchen/diner.
Beyond the hallway there is a delightful open plan family room with double doors to the garden. The kitchen has an array of traditional style units, and an island which sits central and integrates a double oven and hob. Several original Victorian cupboards and stylish wood panelling give the room character and charm.
