Property description

Fabulously bright and airy, two bedroom semi detached bungalow waiting to be explored! This fantastic home can be found in the ever popular garden estate in Birchington. The garden estate is such a wonderful location offering the best of both worlds with peace and quiet but also being near enough to town to make it convenient. You can enjoy a leisurely stroll to the shops from here as well as being near to bus routes and even near enough to walk to the train station with it's fast link into London.

For those of you that fancy a stroll by the sea the beach is also not far away. The home has plenty of space both inside and out and also has plenty of character including bay windows and picture rails. You will find lots of off road parking here as well as a garage, perfect for extra storage. The garden is ideal for enjoying the sunshine as well as being low maintenance. The bedrooms are both a great size so family will be able to come and stay from time to time and the sun will beam in through the large front windows of an evening. The excellent sized lounge and dining areas are ideal for relaxing in as well as enjoying your daily meals around the dining table.

The home could do with some modernisation in places and this certainly adds to the appeal as you really could create your ideal home here.

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.

What the Owner says:
This home has been in our family for the past 46 years when my aunty decided to make this wonderful bungalow her home. Having previously visited the area and spent time here she knew this was the ideal place to move to.

This was a wonderfully happy home and was ideal for walking into town as well as ensuring the peace and quiet that the local community offers. The home is also perfectly placed for those wanting to commute via the nearby and easily accessible motor way links.
