The Vendor's View

My parents bought the property when it was brand new over twenty years ago. My mum took great pride in the garden and planted it up beautifully, but when she became unable to maintain the house anymore we bought it from her as we loved it so much. More recently, we built an extension for her to have her own flat here when she came back to live with us.

The large living room was always my favourite part of the house, with lots of windows and French doors letting in plenty of light. I particularly love the shelving in there that my parents had installed, which is a really nice feature. However, since we built the annexe, I have changed my mind as the garden room in there is such an enjoyable place to spend time in. It has a lovely view over all the gardens down the hill, with beautiful trees and the sea beyond. It s a spectacular view.

North Foreland is a lovely quiet area, with a real feeling of privacy. It s a tree-lined road, with plenty of space between all the houses, and just a short walk to the cliff edge. There are lots of very good schools in the area including 3 grammar schools, good doctors surgery and lovely shops nearby. Westwood Cross is just down the road, and Canterbury is a short train ride away, but best of all is Broadstairs High Street, which has lots of lovely independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The centre of the town with Viking Bay is around 10 minute walk from the house, and there are plenty of beautiful blue flag sandy beaches in the area. I love going to the Broadstairs Cinema, which is quaint with a lovely atmosphere.

We have really enjoyed the spacious atmosphere of the property while we have lived here, as all of the rooms are generously sized and bright. We ve had plenty of wonderful family parties here over the years, and we have great memories. Most of all, we will miss the fantastic views.
