Property Details

3 2 2
Enjoying a quiet location, overlooking historic fields to the front is this delightful detached bungalow with three double sized bedrooms, a bright and roomy interior, situated in one of Gillingham's most sought after roads which is a no through lane where town and country merge. The property dates to the mid 1970s and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for over fourteen years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved with replacement bathroom suites and kitchen units, new internal doors throughout and new triple glazing to the front windows has been fitted. The boiler and radiators have also been updated about seven years ago and a conservatory added about ten years ago. The bungalow benefits from wholly owned solar panels that provide an income, new electrical consumer unit and cavity wall insulation. This lovely home offers well proportioned rooms with an easy layout that will certainly meet the demands of many potential buyers. A viewing is essential not just to appreciate the size and layout, but also its location overlooking fields and the historic site of what was Kings Court Palace, which was a royal hunting lodge used by King John. This site is listed as a protected monument. The property is also the close to the town centre and mainline train station.
