Property description

This property will make a lovely retirement home if you are looking for living space all on one level.

Bungalows are a rarity in Upper Gillingham so please give us a call to view as soon as possible.

The current owners of the property have lived here for many years, this has been a safe area to live in and it is close to local amenities. The parade of shops along the A2 are within walking distance where there is a one-stop shop, a couple of hairdressers and some eateries to save you cooking of an evening. The bus stop to take you into Gillingham or Chatham is also situated just a short walk away on the A2.

If you have a dog and enjoy getting out for some fresh air and an afternoon stroll, Capstone Park is just around the corner where the dog can have a good run around.

The property internally benefits from having separate living areas and the current owners are using the room to the front as a lounge area, but if you were looking for a three bedroom bungalow then this could easily be converted into a bedroom as the dining area could be used as a lounge area.

The garden is a lovely size and as it is low maintenance it will be very manageable.
