Property description

This delightful bungalow backs onto the surrounding farm land on the edge of Birchington.

Looking for a garden that will wow your guests? Enjoy the peace and quiet of tending to your flowers and shrubs? Then you’ll find this bungalow a real treat.

The currents owners have put in a wrap around driveway as you pull up to this lovely home. The entrance hall spans the length of the bungalow.

The bedrooms are both at the front and are good size doubles with built in storage. The lovely large bay windows at the front let in a lot of light.

The kitchen/diner is a great social space and with a side door as well so you won't have to walk your shopping far from the car on your driveway.

The lounge at the back of the bungalow has a wonderful view of your colourful garden. And what a garden it is! There is a workshop and detached garage which is set up for a hot tub so you could be the envy of your kids and grandkids!

So after a days work in the garden or decorating your new bungalow you can relax and let the bubbles sooth your aching muscles. Now that’s the way to relax.

What the Owner says:
We bought this bungalow because it is lovely and private. We are set on a quiet road and it is very peaceful.
Since moving in we have made a lot of improvements including a new driveway, patio doors, fitted wardrobes, and wood flooring throughout and we really love our home.

However our children now live in New Zealand and so we have decided to downsize to something smaller in the UK so we can spend 6 months at a time over with them and 6 months here in the UK. The garden we have created is wonderful and will be too big to manage going forward.
