  • Substantial Grade II Listed detached period house
  • Large plot of approximately 1.34 acres
  • Excellent rural views

Fairbrook House is located in a superb position in Hernhill with extensive rural views to the south-east and has excellent road links to London (from the M2) and rail links from Faversham to St Pancras. Fairbrook House is a substantial Grade II Listed detached house which dates from early 19th Century although it does appear to possibly have earlier origins and a facade from the above date. The house is of red brick construction with sash windows beneath a tiled roof. The property has been owned since 1976 and is now in need of some renovation works. The central heating system is not in working order and the electrical installation, whilst working, is now substandard and needs replacing. However this offers a superb opportunity to purchase a large period house in a plot of approximately 1.34 acres (0.54 hectares) of gardens and grounds. Within the gardens are various outbuildings including a Coach House and garage block. There is also a swimming pool and a pool room. Directions: From Brenley Corner roundabout proceed towards Whitstable/Herne Bay/Margate for 1/2 mile, then take the left hand turning sign posted Goodnestone/Graveney/Staple Street and Hernhill. Take the first turning left (signposted The Red Lion), proceed over the Thanet Way and take a right hand turn at the "T" junction, then proceed for 0.2 miles turning left and the house is first on the left-hand side.
