389,995 Rhodes Minnis

Lets face it, stairs can be a real inconvenience. Fortunately, bungalows are here to help out, and this detached, three-bedroom home in the village of Rhodes Minnis is perfect.

Set within the triangle of Canterbury, Folkestone and Ashford, its a well-connected property with a regular bus service to all the major towns.

The property itself has pretty views

of the surrounding countryside, and is approached by a five-bar gate

and a concrete driveway.

Inside, an entrance hall leads to a dual-aspect living room, and the dining room gives access to a good-sized conservatory through patio doors.

Outside, the garden is mainly laid to lawn and a newly laid patio with a wooden pergola makes it a great place to entertain guests in fine weather.

For the chef in the family, the modern kitchen should delight, incorporating a stainless steel sink, a six-ring gas hob, two ovens, grill and warming drawer, so theres no excuse not to invite your friends round for dinner.
