Sandilands Close, East Stour, Gillingham - £355,000 Sold Subject to Contract

Property Details

3 2 1
Enjoying a quiet cul de sac position in the sought after village of East Stour is this exceptionally well maintained and presented detached bungalow with two/three double sized bedrooms and offered for sale with the advantage of no onward chain. We believe that the property was built in the mid 1960s and has been a very much loved home to the seller for the last twelve years. During this time it has been improved with the addition of the conservatory and in the last few years the oil fired central heating boiler has been replaced. The bungalow also benefits from uPVC double glazing. This lovely home provides flexible, well proportioned accommodation, flooded with plenty of natural light and is in excellent decorative order. A viewing is strongly recommended to really appreciate how the property would meet many potential buyers needs, from those looking for a family home to those wishing to downsize in retirement, however, it will certainly tick many other boxes. The bungalow is situated within walking distance to the village hall, which hosts a variety of events and the 'Crown' Inn with accommodation and serving food. Not far away is the popular Udder farm shop with restaurant. Further facilities are about three miles away in Gillingham, where there is a mainline train station.
