Property description

Positioned in the town of Strood this two double bedroom ground floor flat would be perfect for first time buyers looking to get onto the property ladder or investors looking to take advantage of the increased demand for rental properties in the local area.

The location is within easy reach of local supermarkets and the town centre along with main transport links including the A2 and M2.

There is allocated parking to the front of the building as well as communal gardens to the rear. The property also benefits from some amazing views across Northcote Park and across to the nearby historic town of Rochester with its famous Castle and Cathedral.

Internally the property won't disappoint. The current owners have lived here for more than ten years and have refurbished from top to bottom. The lounge/diner feels incredibly spacious and the whole room is flooded in natural light courtesy of the windows to the front taking full advantage of the scenery on offer.

The property has been decorated throughout and most recently the lounge/diner which has new flooring.

The kitchen has been replaced along with the bathroom which has a jacuzzi style bath. This will allow new buyers to move in without the stress and hassle of decorating and refurbishing.

What the Owner says:
We have lived in the property for more than ten years and could not have been happier living here. We are looking to move within the area as we find it a fantastic place to be.
Everything we need is incredibly accessible and we are less than a fifteen minute walk from the station and also benefiting from a number of schools close by.
Since moving in we have replaced the double glazing as well as installing Eco7 storage heaters giving us noticeable savings on our utility bills.
Our home is perfect for us, we feel it is 'universal' and will suit a considerable amount of buyers. Another benefit is a long lease, over 160 years.
