A 'once in a lifetime' opportunity! This property has been in the same family ownership for many years and comprises a detached bungalow with range of workshops, stores and a former foundry, all standing on a plot extending to over five acres.

The bungalow is situated in a pleasant rural setting within two miles of the popular village of Stockbury and with good access to the A249 Sittingbourne Road leading to the M2 and M20 motorways. The property now requires considerable refurbishment and there may be potential for re-development of the site with a larger residence, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
