Imagine arriving home and stepping over the threshold into the tranquillity of your welcoming period home, bursting with character. As you close the door behind you, you are embraced by the peaceful and cosy comfort of “The Snuggery”.
Iliffe & Iliffe are delighted to bring to market this three bedroom, Victorian, end of terrace home – found just a stone’s throw from Faversham’s town centre and mainline railway station. “The Snuggery” has been lovingly and meticulously restored and finished by the current owner. The property oozes character and contains many period features, including; original fireplaces and internal doors, sash windows and exposed brickwork and floorboards.
On entering the property, you are greeted by the inviting hallway. Off the hallway you discover the cosy yet bright living room. With two double glazed sash windows, the room is bathed in natural light. The main focal point of the room is the period fireplace, which provides the room with refined character.
Continuing along the hallway, you arrive at the dining room. This lovely room retains the original Victorian floorboards and exposed brick fireplace.
The kitchen is reached through the dining room and is a great size. It benefits from fitted units, a five ring gas hob and the additional unique features of a butler sink and exposed brick arch above the hob. There is a lobby at the rear of the kitchen with access to the garden and downstairs cloakroom.
Upstairs, accommodation consists of the three bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. The master bedroom is of generous size and has a light and airy feel thanks to two double glazed sash windows. There is ample space for furniture and a built in cupboard. The room is given added period charm through retention of both the original floorboards and Victorian fireplace.
The second bedroom is a double size and is found along the landing; and the third, single bedroom is at the rear of the property. Like the master, both bedrooms benefit from fine features in period floorboards and fireplaces. The family bathroom includes shower over bath, basin and w/c.
Stairs off the landing lead to the converted attic room. Velux rooflights provide the space with lots of light. The room has potential to be used as a home office, games room or additional reception room. Storage hasn’t been completely lost though the attic conversion as there is storage space in the roof eaves.
Outside is a fantastic rear garden. The garden is perfect for unwinding and is low maintenance as is mostly laid to patio and gravel. The original Victorian garden wall adds character and the wooden summer house enables the new owner to enjoy the garden in any weather.
Faversham’s bustling, historic town centre is just an eight minute walk from Forbes Road. Faversham mainline railway station is a short five minute walk, with services to London St Pancras and Victoria stations taking just over an hour.
Faversham town centre is full of independent retailers, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a popular market held three days a week. Held under the iconic Guildhall; Faversham Market is believed to be the oldest in Kent, having been recorded in the Doomsday book in 1086.
