Discovered nestled among other period buildings, in the centre of Faversham, this two bedroom barn conversion is bursting with character and has lots to offer a new owner. Originally built as a barn as part of a long since closed public house, Chequers Barn is one of the most unique properties in Faversham town centre.
Despite its central location, the property is found in a quiet and peaceful setting – giving the owner the space to relax and live.
On entering the property you are greeted by the welcoming entrance hall, off which the two bedrooms and shower room are accessed. Both bedrooms are generously sized double rooms with built in wardrobes. The modern shower room includes a large walk-in shower.
Stairs lead from the hall to the remainder of the accommodation, which is open-planned, occupying the entirety of the first floor. The large open-plan reception room and kitchen boasts a vaulted ceiling and original period beams. The kitchen includes a breakfast bar, hob, oven, wine rack and under-counter space for appliances. There is plentiful counter-top and cupboard space. The open-plan nature of the accommodation makes for the perfect space to entertain and spend time with friends and family.
Outside the property has a delightful and private courtyard garden. The garden is the perfect size to maintain and offers a peaceful space in which to unwind.
Chequers Barn has lots to offer new owner as a permanent home or investment property. The current owner has operated the property in the past as a successful Airbnb.
Situated just a stone’s throw from Faversham Market Place, in Faversham’s historic centre, a number of facilities and attractions are right on the doorstep. Faversham mainline railway station is just a short walk, with services to London St Pancras, Kings Cross, Canon Street 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 Domesday book in 1086.
Faversham is steeped in history with its oldest building dating back to 1234. A lot of Faversham’s character comes from its charming architecture with buildings surviving from the medieval, Georgian and Victorian periods, through to the present day. The town is also home to Britain’s oldest brewery – Shepherd Neame.
The town contains several both ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rated schools at both primary and secondary level.
