Discovered on Athelstan Road (one of Faversham’s most popular streets), Iliffe & Iliffe are delighted to bring to market this three bedroom, Victorian semi-detached property. The home has been finished to a very high standard by the current owner, has retained a number of period features and oozes charm and character.
On entering the property you are greeted by the welcoming hallway, off which the dining room and living room are accessed. Both reception rooms boast features including log burners, sash windows and a large bay window in the dining room which floods the space with natural light. The kitchen includes a range with cooker and oven, a butler’s sink and copious amounts of cupboard and counter-top space. A downstairs w/c is found towards the rear of the property. The cellar provides some great storage space and could be converted to be used as a bedroom, home office or additional reception room – depending on a new owner’s requirements.
Upstairs, bedrooms two and three are discovered on the first floor. Both are great size double rooms and include period feature fireplaces. The family bathroom has been finished to a very high standard and comprises of shower, roll-top bath, lavatory and wash basin. The master bedroom is found on the second floor of the property, includes built in wardrobes and its own shower room with shower, lavatory and wash basin across the landing.
Outside there is a garden to the front of the property. The south facing rear garden retains the original wall and is mostly laid to lawn, patio and established flowerbeds and shrubs. Access down the side of the property provides a helpful way in to the garden from the front, and the garden shed offers some ideal storage space.
Faversham’s bustling, historic town centre is a nine minute walk or two minute drive from Athelstan Road. Faversham mainline railway station is eight minutes on foot or one minute by car, with services to London St Pancras, 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.
