This two-bedroom bungalow on Heath Road in Boughton Monchelsea in Maidstone is now available for sale with planning to extend already agreed. The property needs a full make over but the potential here is hugely exciting. The property currently comprises two bedrooms, two reception rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a conservatory, a large rear garden, and a driveway for multiple vehicles.
Set back from the road in an idyllic countryside location the property benefits from being surrounded by beautiful greenery and rolling fields. Inside the property will make an invigorating project for the right buyer to really put their own stamp on, and to increase the size of the property significantly with planning permission already obtained. The main hallway extends through the centre of the property; to the right of the hallway as you enter the property is the downstairs bedroom which has some built-in wardrobes. Across the hall are the two reception rooms that have been knocked through into one large room, separated by the chimney breast with a fireplace either side. After the bedroom is the kitchen which is a decent size and includes two built-in storage cupboards, and a door providing side access to the garden. At the end of the main hallway the property opens out into a final hall area that has some more storage and from which is access to the shower room, conservatory, and stairs to the upstairs bedroom. The shower room includes a bidet. The conservatory has access to the rear garden. Upstairs, the bedroom is good size double and includes a storage cupboard and significant eaves storage.
Outside, the rear garden is an absolute dream, and extends all the way to the fields at the rear of the property. The field directly at the back of the plot boundary is owned by Boughton Monchelsea Parish Council and cannot be developed meaning you will always have beautiful and uninterrupted views. The garden itself is in three sections; closest to the house is a patio area and a shed which leads out onto a lovely lawn. Beyond this is a dry pond, and another lawn area which has a fence and gate that leads into an area at the back which would be ideal for growing plants and vegetables. The whole garden is bordered by trees and bushes and wonderful greenery and would be an absolute haven for anyone who enjoys the outside.
Approved Planning Proposal: Removal of existing pitched roof and conservatory, erection of single storey front and rear extensions, and creation of the first floor with pitched roof over, including installation of new doors, windows, and roof lights.
