Situated in William Gibbs Court, is this much sought after, first floor, 1-bedroom apartment in the original part of the old Girls School, (it being the first Girls School in Faversham) and accounts for the higher than average ceiling heights. These apartments rarely become available and benefit from the period proportions. The property is ideally situated within a level walk of all local amenities including, mainline railway station and bus routes, supermarket, library, doctors surgery and town centre shopping.

Access is through the main lobby with a lift or staircase up to the first floor. The apartment is on the East side of the building and the large windows flood the apartment with light in the morning, offering an outlook onto the mature trees, which border the building. The drapes at these windows are included in the sale and were relined as part of the vendor's refurbishment works. Carpets and floor coverings were replaced at this and are included within the sale. The entrance hall has plenty of storage space and opens into all principal rooms. The living room is larger than average for the building with a good dining space and plenty of room for furniture. The kitchen, which was refitted approx. two and a half years ago is very well appointed with modern units, ceramic hob and built in electric oven. There is also appliance space for fridge freezer and washing machine. The large bedroom faces the front of the building and has built in double wardrobes. The shower room was completely refitted at the same time as the kitchen and is modern and bright, with good quality shower, low level WC and wash hand basin.

The apartment has emergency pull cords throughout which connect to the manager and emergency response. On site is a serviced laundry room, residents lounge and separate guest accommodation. A hairdresser visits once every two weeks and the salon is on the first floor. Viewing is highly recommended.
