Property Details

4 2 1
A delightful mid terraced Victorian home with four good sized bedrooms, enjoying views of the church and countryside in the distance and ideally located within a short walk of the town centre and within reach of the mainline train station. The property was built in 1897 and retains many character features indicative of the era, such as high ceilings, dado rails and some lovely original fireplaces plus exposed floorboards. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating from a combination boiler. The property has been a very much cherished home to our selling family for the last six years. During this time it has been well maintained and has the advantage of a redecoration, some new carpeting and landscaping to the rear garden. The property must be viewed to truly appreciate the well proportioned rooms, as well as the layout and location. Gillingham offers a good selection of independent shops and chain stores, doctors and dentists, schooling for all ages and a range of entertainment venues.
