Winter evenings could be cosy in front of the open fireplace in the drawing room of five-bedroom Bell Tower House.
Built in 1996, the Georgian-style detached home sits in one acre on the edge of the hamlet of Painters Forstal, near Faversham and has a guide price of £1.1m with Jackson-Stops.
There’s plenty of off-road parking, as well as a four-bay detached garage and the centre of Faversham is a short drive away.
A sweeping gravel driveway leads to the grand front steps of the imposing house, which has large and symmetrical sash windows and is crowned by an ornamental bell tower.
An entrance hall with oak flooring has an impressive two-way, or ‘bifurcating’ staircase. The hall has a cloakroom and coats cupboard off.
The elegant drawing room has a central Adam-style fireplace with cast iron insert.
There are picture rails, dado rails and two sets of French doors leading to the south-west facing wrap-around terrace.
There’s a family room and a dining room, both with French doors.
An 18ft x 14ft kitchen/breakfast room has limed-oak cabinets, integrated appliances and leads to a utility room and to a second downstairs cloakroom.
First floor has a master bedroom with twin dressing rooms and an en suite with bath and separate shower. Guest bedroom has an en suite shower room and built-in wardrobes.
The three further bedrooms all have built-in wardrobes and share the family bathroom.
Dee Ryall, of Jackson-Stops, says: “This is a most impressive and substantial Georgian-style residence set on the edge of Painters Forstal. Bell Tower House is a striking home built to an extremely high standard.
“There are elegant and spacious rooms, large sash windows, high coved ceilings, dado and picture rails and many French doors, which open on to the lovely gardens.”
