Wyke Road, Gillingham - £425,000 For Sale

Property Details

3 3 2
A fabulous opportunity to purchase a chalet style detached home offering immense possibilities as to its usage. The property is located in the sought after Wyke area of the town and within easy walking distance of the local primary school with further facilities and the town centre a little further on. We believe that the property dates to the 1970's and in keeping with the era boasts large windows allowing plenty of natural light to floor the interior and benefits from gas central heating and uPVC double glazing with an attractive Georgian bar inlay. Our sellers have owned the property for the last nine years during this time they have made improvements that included the conversion of the loft. This has given the opportunity to bring in an income under the room rent scheme, which currently £725 per calendar month. However, other possibilities for the first floor include accommodation for a dependent relative, perhaps for a young family member to experience self sufficiency or it could easily be incorporated into the main accommodation and provide another two to three bedrooms. The property must be seen to really understand how adaptable it can be as well as the wonderful outside space and work from home option.
