The Vendor's View

My grandfather bought the house in the Sixties, as a shared summer holiday house for his children and grandchildren, to tempt everyone back to Herne Bay.
What a magical place it was to spend childhood holidays. Racing down to the sea for a swim before breakfast, days spent falling in and out of the water, dinghies, windsurfers and canoes, catching shrimps for supper and being allowed to stay up for midnight swims. As teenagers we thought the best were the wild, windy spring and autumn days, when the waves were big, boisterous and great for jumping or crash-diving through. Then a quick scamper back up the beach to a hot shower and mug of steaming hot chocolate.
For our parents what was special about Jarrahdale was its closeness to the sea. After parking the car in Ridgeway Cliff, the moment they arrived at the grassy cliff and the short beach path down to Jarrahdale and the sea, they left Western Esplanade, the cars and the noise of the town behind. On summer evenings as the sun went down, they loved a quiet drink on the balcony and front row view of many a spectacular sunset, all red and gold across the low tide sands. Later at night the sky was dark and sparkled with stars, the sound of the sea, or a late night barefoot stroll on the sand if the tide was out - that was truly getting away from it all.
Jarrahdale made for more relaxed parenting. The adults could give the kids unusual freedom to play on the beach, in the water, or out in boats, knowing they were always in sight, and it was only a few moments run from the kitchen to the water's edge if need arose. The under-balcony boat store is just feet from the beach, making it easy to store boats, equipment and lifejackets securely at night. Jarrahdale has been a fabulous family holiday home, but would also be great for boat-lovers and swimmers who love being in the water, whatever the season.
