The Vendor's View

Our house was previously owned by a family living in India. They became friends with our parents, who were also living in India, and rented it to them when they came to the UK on leave. Knowing the house, the area and the owners meant it was a very easy decision for our parents to buy the house when it came on the market in 1964. Their friends had called the house 'Anondaloy', which is Bengali for happy place and we were delighted to keep the name and the connection with India.
The property is set on a large corner plot and our father particularly liked the fact that the garden surrounded the house and he could walk all the way round. The property has a double garage and off-road parking for two cars; something that is unusual for this area. We understand that it would be very difficult to get permission to build a double garage on this road these days!
Our favourite feature is certainly the entrance. The porch has red roses round it and a balcony above and the stained glass front door is a beautiful welcome to the home. The generously sized rooms, along with the high ceilings give the whole property a lovely feeling of spaciousness.
The location is absolutely perfect, positioned on a level road within walking distance from the shops and the seafront. In our opinion it s one of the best roads in Herne Bay. We have always loved the walks along the seafront and the Saturday market in the town.
We are now downsizing, but we know we will miss the spacious atmosphere of our family home and the memories that we have here.
