Property Details

4 2 2
An opportunity not to be missed - a recently re-furbished detached family home with flexible accommodation, three/four double bedrooms and sitting in wooded grounds extending to about one and half acres. The bungalow enjoys a rural but not isolated location just a short drive to the town of Gillingham, which has a range of facilities and shops plus a mainline train station serving London, Waterloo and the West Country, main communication links, such as the A303 and A30 are also easily accessible. The property was built in the mid 1960s and has been home and a much enjoyed project to our seller for the last two and half years. During the this time, the bungalow has been completely transformed from a tired and dated property into a bright, spacious and contemporary home that offers well proportioned rooms with flexible usage. The property has also benefitted from a re-configuration to create three large double bedrooms and an additional room produced by linking the external space between the two wings and incorporating it into the main body of the bungalow. In addition, the property has been entirely re-wired and has LED lighting throughout, re-plastered and new central heating system installed. The windows and doors are all uPVC double glazed and the majority of the flooring is engineered oak. This fabulous home has to be viewed to really appreciate what it has to offer, both inside and outside and how it would satisfy many buyers' needs. It would make a great family home for those looking for plenty of outside space - as an introduction to 'The Good Life' or for those seeking an outdoor life and where children and pets to let off steam building dens and treehouses. Book early so as not to lose out on this once in a lifetime buy.
