DESCRIPTION

A rare chance to acquire an individually designed and built detached bungalow situated on a good sized plot within easy walking distance of the village shops, school and beach.

Built by the vendors’ parents in the mid 1950’s it was then passed on in the mid 1970’s and has been a family home for the last 65 years.

The property would now benefit from some updating or possible extending/remodelling, but given the lovely location and good size garden in the middle of this much sought-after seaside village, we consider it to be a well worthwhile and rewarding undertaking.

Constructed of brick under a ‘Kent peg’ tiled roof, the accommodation comprises, spacious entrance hall, lounge with open fireplace, dining room, fitted kitchen, 3 bedrooms and shower room with separate WC. The garden sits on two levels, the top level (where the bungalow sits) comprises a courtyard style patio area with a raised fish pond, greenhouse, mature shrubs, trees and grassed area. At the lower level is a double garage and workshop, grassed area, trees and shrubs.

KINGSDOWN is a former fishing village of charm and character offering a range of leisure activities.  In the village there is a small selection of shops and amenities including a Newsagent/Post Office, Butcher, three Public Houses, the Church of St John’s and a Primary School (rated outstanding by Ofsted).  Recreational activities include water sports and fishing along with Walmer & Kingsdown Golf Course. A further three champion golf courses are a short drive away including Royal St Georges in Sandwich (venue for the British Open).  The historic coastal town of DEAL has a good variety of shopping and leisure facilities including a Summer Festival of Music and the Arts, restaurants and galleries yet still retains much of its character as a former maritime town.  DOVER, with its docks and cross-Channel services, is seven miles away, offering fast access to the Continent. Fast Rail Link access to London St Pancras travelling from the nearest station at Walmer (1hr 15mins).
