Front, Carters Road, Folkestone, CT20

DESCRIPTION
This semi-detached bungalow is situated on a peaceful cul-de-sac where it occupies a generous plot. The property has been a much loved home but it is fair to say that it now requires updating and improvement throughout, it has been priced to reflect this and is considered well worthy of any expenditure required and has the potential to provide an exceptionally comfortable home. There is also considerable scope to extend and a generous attic space provides potential for conversion to provide additional accommodation (subject to all necessary consents being obtained).

The accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule, entrance hall, sitting room which has an adjoining conservatory and is open to the kitchen, bathroom and there are three double bedrooms (one currenty utilised as a dining room). The gardens encompass the property to two sides, plus a generous area at the front of the bungalow. There is also a garage, workshop and ample off-road parking.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
