WHAT THE VENDOR SAYS
'We have lived happily in Swain Road for 8 years, and we are only moving because of job relocation.

From the day we moved in we were welcomed by the neighbours and immediately felt 'At Home'.
The house itself is one of the oldest houses in Wigmore and is instantly recognisable when you enter the Cul-De-Sac.

Every morning we wake to the idyllic sound of bird song, and over look the Ancient Woodland, Hoath Woods. Swain Road is a little oasis; you would never believe you were living in the middle of a bustling Medway Town.

The house has a lovely homely feel, which greeted us on our very first viewing and we knew it HAD to be our next home.

In an ideal world we would want to pick up the house and take it with us to our next destination. We know that whoever buys the house will be as happy as we have been here. We will definitely miss it a lot'.
