Property Details

4 2 2
An individually designed detached family home offering spacious and flexible living accommodation of around 1900 square feet (178 sq m) with three/ four double bedrooms and 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 and just a short drive away is the town of Gillingham with mainline train station and the sought after high school, which falls within the catchment area for the property. The property is about twenty years old and has had only two owners with our seller having owned the property for nearly sixteen years. During this time it has been well maintained and has recently benefited from some re-decoration and a new oil fired central heating boiler. In addition, the property has uPVC double glazing. This fabulous home provides multi-functional room usage that would certainly lend itself to housing many generations of family. There is scope to create an annexe with the utility, pantry and bedroom four/office to give a degree of independence to a family member or plenty of room for a growing or established family to have their own spaces. This well proportioned home will have to be viewed to really see how it would satisfy many potential buyers' needs. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this delightful home.
