Property Details

4 3 1
A fabulous opportunity to purchase a good sized detached bungalow offering flexible accommodation with four double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and enjoying a slightly elevated position where town and country meet. The property is located in the Bay area of Gillingham, boasting some wonderful views of countryside and benefits from easy reach of local facilities, such as a Coop, hairdressers and fish and chip shop. The town centre and mainline train station are a little further on. The property was built in the early 1960s and has been the much loved home to our sellers since then. During this time it has been extended and updated with replacement kitchen units and bathroom suite plus new electrics, which were done in 2018. The bungalow also benefits from uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating via radiators. The property enjoys well proportioned, bright rooms that provide multi functional usage. There is also the potential, subject to the necessary permission, for a building plot. This delightful bungalow must be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer and to see how one could make it home.
