Peaceful Village Location Just Four Miles From Canterbury
EPC RATING: D
Full property description
A delightful two bedroom bungalow, in a lovely village location, offering beautiful mature gardens that back onto pretty woodland. This bungalow offers spacious accommodation with plenty of outside space including parking and a garage. There is still potential to further enhance the property, with an opportunity to convert the loft (subject to planning consent).
The bungalow is entered via a UPVC front door which opens into an entrance porch, with tiled flooring. An attractive wooden door then opens into the entrance hall, which leads to the living accommodation, storage cupboards and loft access.
Two large double bedrooms can be found at the front of the property, along with the well-appointed bathroom. The loft room has been boarded and offers a huge amount of potential, currently being used as storage and previously a hobby room.
To the rear of the property, there is a bright kitchen that has an excellent range of modern wall and floor units, a built in hob and oven, all set around colourful ceramic tiles. There is a large cupboard which makes an excellent larder. There is also outside access to the side of the bungalow.
The open plan lounge diner opens into the conservatory, through double doors connecting the garden to this impressive living space. There is also an original 1960s tiled fireplace, which brings character and charm to this room.
The property is set back from the road behind a long front garden, which is laid to lawn with steppingstones leading to the doorway, whilst a driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles.
The rear garden flows from the conservatory with a large patio area and steps rising to the lawn. Lots of mature shrubs and established fruit trees border the garden. This garden which is on a gentle slope guides you to the top, where you will find a useful shed, workshop, and summer house which all backs onto the woodland. Sitting here offers fine views of the village and fields beyond. To the right of the property, the main driveway leads to a brick-built garage with built in cupboards.
The property is situated in the popular village of Dunkirk. It is approximately three miles east of Faversham and five miles west of Canterbury. Dunkirk has a new village hall, two garden centres, a farm shop and the Red Lion public house. Its neighbouring village of Boughton-under-Blean has a long main street with a post office, village store, churches, a well-regarded primary school, hairdressers and several pubs and restaurants.
The villages are very closely linked and share a real sense of community. Dunkirk is close to the A2 which gives easy access to the motorway network. There is a regular bus service through the village to Canterbury and Faversham and the railway stations at both Canterbury and Faversham offer a regular service to London Victoria and Charing Cross as well as a high speed link to London St Pancras.
The nearby town of Faversham has a thriving High Street with a variety of independent traders as well as well-known brands and three times a week the town has a bustling market. The town has several well-regarded primary schools as well as the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and good leisure facilities including an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, a cinema and a large recreation ground.
The cathedral city of Canterbury offers an even wider array of shopping, leisure and educational amenities, including a selection of state and private schools, three universities, the White Friars Shopping Centre, the Marlowe theatre and two hospitals.
