The Lime Works is an impressive and highly individual conversion of two water towers into a spacious and contemporary home. This Countryside Estate is situated on the outskirts of Faversham which is one of England’s most historic and charming towns, and is located between the rural delights of the North Downs and the beautiful Kent Coast. This fascinating Grade II listed building was built in the early 1930s and was a functioning water softening plant until 1942.
The current owners acquired the property in 2005, and have sympathetically converted, restored and refurbished the building, with the emphasis on attention to detail and specification. It is a wonderfully proportioned home; the spacious accommodation is well suited to entertaining on a large scale and caters equally for family living. Internally, the accommodation is arranged over 4 floors. The ground floor benefits from floor to ceiling windows, culminating in light and elegant living spaces. A series of spiral staircases lead to the leisure facilities on the first floor and the bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor.
The stunning master bedroom suite occupies the entire fourth floor and benefits from far reaching views over the grounds. There are two roof terraces, one of which accommodates the pool and both which provides impressive outdoor entertaining spaces.
Works are still ongoing at the property with the purpose of bringing the house to 90% completion which will allow the buyer to design and specify the final 10% by way of arrangement with the current construction company or with the buyer appointing their own designer and contractors. It can be purchased for £1,5 million (about $2,3 million).
