A unique opportunity to buy a fascinating and untouched Grade II Listed timber framed cottage, offered for sale for the first time in living memory and now in need of complete modernisation. Set in about 1 acre (0.4 hectares) of gardens and grounds.
Fairbrook Cottage is a wonderful Grade II Listed timber framed cottage which, according to the local authority listing, dates from the 16th century. Of particular note is magnificent plaster work in the fourth bedroom with the classical scene of Diana and Actaeon which is preserved in a glazed case above the fireplace.
From the Brenley Corner roundabout take the A299 towards Whitstable/Herne Bay for about half a mile. Turn left to Goodnestone/Graveney/Staple Street in Hernhill and turn left back over the Thanet Way.
