4 bed Detached House
Abbey Street, Faversham
A particularly spacious detached period residence, with the rare advantage of off road parking and a garage, situated in this most prestigious and historic setting in the heart of Faversham.
The property offers over 2300 sq. ft of light and well proportioned accommodation, alongside a host of delightful period features.
The property is accessed via a discrete side door, which opens into a lovely reception room with a tall sash window, a cast iron fireplace and stairs to the first floor.
From here, an inner hallway provides access to a useful study, the drawing room and a dual chamber cellar.
The drawing room is an impressive 23 ft dual aspect room, with pretty leaded stained glass windows and two fireplaces, one of which has a working open fire. In addition to these period features, this room has an unusual shape to it, which adds to its charm and character.
To the rear of the property, there is a spacious open plan kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with a range of traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around wood effect work surfaces and a ceramic one and a half bowl sink. Glazed French doors open onto an attractive garden, whilst another door leads to a cloakroom and utility room, with a stable door to the side of the house.
On the first floor, a central landing leads to four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is to the rear of the property and enjoys pleasant views over the tree lined Abbey Place. Furthermore, this well proportioned double room also benefits from a dressing area and an en suite bathroom.
The rear garden measures approximately 48 ft x 25 ft and is a delightful courtyard style walled garden with some attractive planting and mature trees.
A set of timber double gates open from Abbey Place onto a large area of block paving within the walled garden, which could provide off road parking if desired. The block paving leads to a large detached garage with power and lighting connected to it.
