Sold STC - Sandling Road, Postling, CT21 - £475,000

From the rear, Sandling Road, Postling, CT21

DESCRIPTION
An exceptional opportunity to acquire a single storey dwelling occupying a generous plot approaching one acre in total in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The bungalow has suffered a prolonged period of neglect, an element of structural damage and some dubious DIY projects. It is fair to say that it does now require an extensive programme of repair and refurbishment however, given the unique setting and the stunning panorama over open countryside which it enjoys, the property is considered well worthy of the expenditure required and has been priced accordingly.

The property offers comfortably proportioned accommodation with two reception rooms and two bedrooms on a generous footprint. It also presents a potential opportunity for redevelopment in its entirety subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained.

The setting is delightful being surrounded by open countryside with just one neighbouring property to the left. The land slopes upwards to the rear is laid largely to lawn. There is a generous driveway to the front providing ample parking. There are also a couple of outbuildings and two caravans (one on its side). The property is sold as seen.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
