Found on the Ashford Road and within easy reach of Faversham’s bustling town centre, Iliffe and Iliffe are proud to be able to bring this five bedroom, detached family home, with separate annex to market .
Elmsted House has lots to offer to a potential buyer, with its many bedrooms, expansive rear garden, garage, and its own self-contained one-bedroomed annexe.
Once parked on the sizeable drive with its ability to accommodate multiple vehicles and through the ornately designed front door, a long high-ceilinged hallway bisects the ground floor accommodation which consists of lounge, formal dining room, snug, downstairs lavatory and kitchen.
The lounge is a large, comfortable space with original decorative features and large windows making this a very light and relaxing space. A beautifully designed working fireplace is just the thing on cold winters’ evenings.
Across the hall we find the dining room which is large and luxurious; again, with some attractive original features and exposed polished floorboards.
A door leads from the dining room into the kitchen which can also be accessed via the entrance hallway. The kitchen is of a good size with useable work surfaces and a built-in electric hob with stainless steel extractor hood. Stone tiles cover the floor and a high-level double oven is built in to one of the kitchen units.
Across the hall from the kitchen, we discover another reception room which is currently being used as a snug/breakfast room with views of the garden through the sash window. A door leads off this into a utility room with sink and space for a washing machine. This in turn leads through to a store-room which in turn opens into the garden.
Also to be found off the hallway is a stairway leading down to the tanked cellar which offers lots of potential including use as an; office, playroom, studio or cinema room, should the new owner have a requirement.
First floor accommodation comprises four good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom containing bath, shower unit, wash hand basin and lavatory. These are all to be found off a generous landing.
Second floor accommodation consists of a further bedroom and shower room with wash hand basin and lavatory across a small landing.
Outside, the garden is a large and impressive space, mostly laid to lawn with established trees and shrubs lining its borders. There is a large patio area near the house with a pond and a covered pergola, so there are many options for summer evening entertaining.
The garden has such a large amount of space that a fully self-contained, one bedroom annexe with its own garden area exists. The annexe consists of a good sized lounge with French windows, kitchen/diner, bathroom (with bath, shower unit, wash hand basin and lavatory) and a good sized double bedroom with built-in cupboard storage. The annexe offers the potential multi-generational living, a place for guests to stay, a great work from home space or the opportunity to run an Airbnb.
The property also benefits from having a large garage for vehicle or extra storage; additionally, the garage also has a workshop area, ideal for DIY projects and jobs.
Faversham’s bustling, historic town centre is a short walk or five minute drive from Elmsted House. Faversham mainline railway station is 10 minutes on foot or two minutes by car, with services to London St Pancras, Cannon 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.
