The bungalow is approached by a pretty front garden which is laid to lawn with shrubs and borders, and a paved pathway bordering the driveway where there is comfortable parking for a large family car. Entrance to the property is via a gated archway to the right connecting the bungalow and the good sized garage that sits on the far side. The front door is accessed via the side of the bungalow where the wrap around garden offers a secluded paved patio area alongside. Access to the front door currently has the benefit of small slope and handrail In addition to the 2 very shallow steps. The double glazed entrance door was newly replaced to facilitate a low threshold entrance in December 2015 and opens into a small internal porch with additional glazed door leading to:
ENTRANCE HALL: A wide carpeted hallway offering access to all other room, and benefitting from a full height airing cupboard with hot tank and slatted shelving, and loft hatch leading to a very spacious and insulated loft.
MASTER BEDROOM: A sunny spacious bedroom with a large double glazed oriel bay window to the front, large feature windowsill, radiator, power points, telephone point, fitted wardrobes and connecting units offering ample storage, and fitted neutral coloured carpet.
SECOND DOUBLE BEDROOM: Another bright and sunny room with double glazed windows to the front, radiator, power points, and fitted neutral coloured carpet.
SINGLE BEDROOM: This is a good sized single bedroom with ample space for a single bed, and bedroom furniture, or would make a lovely hobby room, office or study. Double glazed window to the side, radiator, power points, and fitted neutral colour carpet.
LARGE FAMILY WETROOM: This is a very large family wet room fully tiled and professionally installed and finished to a very high standard in December 2015 with a white toilet and handbasin, white independent electric shower system, and sealed vinyl wet room flooring. There are 2 windows to the side, a large double radiator, and independent electric wall mounted fan heater. This wet room currently benefits from mobility friendly folding support rails either side of the toilet, and a folding shower seat and handrail, but these could easily be removed if not required.
KITCHEN: Double glazed windows overlooking pretty established shrubbed flower beds and secluded patio area to the side. A range of white gloss finished wall and base units with integrated tall fridge freezer, tall larder unit, and gas boiler encased by matching unit. There is currently an integrated gas oven and hob. We are aware that the hob needs replacing, this has been reflected in the price. There is plumbing and drainage in place for a washing machine, radiator, ample power points, and fitted vinyl flooring.
LOUNGE DINER: Generous 'L' shaped lounge with double glazed patio doors leading to a bright sunny conservatory, additional double glazed windows looking out onto the rear garden from dining space. Two radiators, ample power points, TV aerial and satellite point, and fitted carpet.
CONSERVATORY: White pentagonal double glazed conservatory with opening windows and single side door leading to the back garden. The conservatory is accessed via sliding patio doors leading from the lounge providing a warm sunny spot to sit and enjoy the garden through all seasons and has fitted carpet and mains lighting.
SUMMER HOUSE: The summer house is a wonderful spot to catch the late sun but also benefits from mains electric with an independent fuse box, and mains water supply having previously been used as a utility room with ample space for a washing machine, tumble dryer, and chest freezer as well as additional storage. These amenities also lend themselves to the option of reconfiguring/replacing/extending to create an external office, play room, gym, or games room etc.
GARAGE: The garage is detached from the bungalow and has an up and over the door to the front, and a pedestrian door to the side. This offers ample space for a family car as well as a work bench and storage. There is a spacious loft area within the apex roof and has the additional advantage of mains power, power points, and lighting.
REAR GARDEN: This detached bungalow is fortunate to sit on a lovely wide plot offering a spacious square garden to the rear, that wraps around to the secluded patio area that sits to the side behind the garage, and includes an outside tap. The rear garden is laid to lawn with borders on all sides that include a range of established shrubs and small trees, including a spectacular red Acer at the back which greets your eye from all angles including as you enter the property from the gated archway at the side.
ADDITIONAL GATED ACCESS POINT: From the rear garden there is an additional full width gated access point to the opposite side of the bungalow and leads from the back of the conservatory to a midway gate and additional walkway to the front garden. This point of access could easily be overlooked from the front as it is currently fenced and concealed with shrubbery for additional security but should be viewed from the back garden as this could easily be opened into a second gate at this side of the property. This is of particular significance with regard to the potential this bungalow offers for further development/extension of the wide space at the main side entrance to the property, or possible garage conversion (subject to planning), as this second access point would still facilitate access to the garden without having to go through the property itself.
GENERAL SUMMARY: The bungalow benefits from gas central heating and double glazed UPVC doors and windows, and has huge potential as a comfortable family home, a very comfortable low maintenance home for those possibly considering somewhere to retire by the sea, and those who may face some challenges with mobility as there are many things that make life more accessible already in place. However, because of its perfect location, this bungalow would also make a wonderful holiday home, whether for private use or maybe even a holiday let with the required permissions.
LOCATION: This property offers ample unrestricted street parking for visitors, sits on a lovely flat part of Palm Bay offering very easy access to the local shops and bus stops just 2 minutes away, the local church offering a range of social and community opportunities, and the spectacular sandy bays and cliff top paths which offer the most incredible views and sunsets that can be reached via accessible paths less than 0.5 miles away. The 4 coastal photos below offer views of the following:
The 1st picture shows the cliff top walk which looks out onto Palm Bay and catches the sun all day (when it's out of course!) This cliff top path is just 0.5 miles by road from the bungalow with ample parking, but from the bungalow there is an accessible walkway that can be followed by the small parade of shops across the road that is slightly shorter and more direct. The pathway is wide and flat and offers a gentle stroll or cycle ride all the way to Margate to the left, and to both the Botany Bay Hotel and Captain Digby to the right, both of which have spectacular views and serve very good food. The Palm Bay Cafe which serves very good breakfast, lunch, coffee, and ice creams, etc. is just a short stroll along to the left of view and there are plenty of benches to just sit and watch the world go by, as well as being a great place to watch the most spectacular sunsets looking west towards Margate.
The 2nd picture shows the view looking down on Botany Bay from the clifftop, a beach extremely popular with families, but equally enjoyed by all ages whether strolling or paddling or just wanting to relax and catch some sun.
The 3rd picture shows you accessible access to this beautiful sandy beach at Botany Bay where there are refreshment facilities. This access point is just a short walk of 0.6 miles from the bungalow. Once on the beach it is possible to walk to neighbouring beaches at low tide (always check the local tide timetable!) and also offers the possibility of walking to Broadstairs and Ramsgate via a combination of beaches, cliff top pathways, quiet walkways, and parks, taking in stunning views across Kingsgate Bay, Joss Bay and Stone Bay on route to Viking Bay at Broadstairs, and onwards via Dumpton Gap to Ramsgate. You will find a wealth of further local information at http://www.visitthanet.co.uk/beaches-bays where they have a very clear but simple interactive map.
The 4th picture looks out to sea from the wide grassed area to the front of The Botany Bay Hotel which is 0.8 miles very pleasant and accessible walk from the bungalow, or 1.3 miles by car with ample parking and accessible facilities on arrival.
