Iliffe and Iliffe are excited to bring to market this delightful Grade II listed four-bedroom period property located in Faversham’s historic Abbey Street. This property has recently undergone a comprehensive refurbishment and combines original features with sympathetic modernisation providing a comfortable yet practical environment.
The front door opens onto the spacious main living/dining area. This is a well-proportioned space with oak ceiling beams and wood-burning stove, and makes for pristine relaxation on cosy winters evenings whilst also allowing generous amounts of light.
The open plan kitchen has been modernised to a very high standard whilst still retaining some delightful original features. A rear external door leads out into the garden and stairs lead off to the first floor. There is also a downstairs toilet and wash basin whilst another door leads down to the cellar which has electricity and is currently being used as a very useful storage/utility area.
On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms with oak ceiling beams and period features. The bathroom can also be found off the landing and has recently been updated to include a shower cubicle. This is in addition to the bath, w/c and wash basin.
Upstairs to the second floor and two more double bedrooms can be found, one of which is currently being used as a home office but could very easily be used as an additional bedroom/dressing room should the new owner have a requirement.
Outside, there is a good size walled garden with rear access to the street, a shed for useful storage and a stone-slabbed patio, just the thing for enjoying warm summer evenings.
Abbey Street is extremely sought after and is one of the most prestigious addresses in Faversham, with a number of historic and listed buildings lining the street.
