Unusual converted 1930’s country house in Kent

The Lime Works is an extraordinary property from the 1930s, and which was a functioning water softening plant until 1942. Bought in 2005 by the present owners, the two water towers were converted into a luxury property (with the final 10% remaining to be done) offering great opportunities for entertaining in a well-proportioned house on the outskirts of Faversham.

Internally, accommodation is spread over four floors. The ground floor has floor-to-ceiling windows offering elegant reception spaces, while the spiral staircases lead on to the first floor, which houses the leisure space – including a gym and cinema room – and the second floor, which has most of the bedrooms and bathroom accommdation. The stunning master bedroom suite occupies the entire fourth floor and the house has two roof terraces, one of which has a heated swimming pool.
