The Vendor's View - We bought the property in 2005. The first thing that hit us was its size and the garden.
The character and cosy feel of the house is amazing and we have retained as many of the original Edwardian period features as possible, whilst also having all modern comforts. People often tell us that the house has a very European feel, which is probably thanks to all the time that we have spent living abroad!
We have done so much to the property and love all of the rooms equally. Our favourite feature is the log burner in the lounge, which we now believe is essential for any house! The garage is very high spec and could easily be converted into an office or granny annexe, and there is also good access with off-street parking both at the front and rear.
The house is perfect for entertaining and we have placed a real emphasis on indoor-outdoor living, taking advantage of the all-day sun. We have a loggia on the back as well as a recently built log cabin/summer house, which really adds to this. Some bedrooms have sea views.
We have found the location to be brilliant. Kingsgate Avenue is one of the most sought after roads to live in, a wide private road with the beach at the bottom and a convenient little shop at the top. Botany Bay is just a short walk away with a great restaurant/bar/hotel there, which we often use. The nearby bus service is excellent into Broadstairs, with access to the many excellent schools in the area. Being on the doorstep of North Foreland golf course has also been an advantage.
We will really miss the large, mature and private garden with the indoor-outdoor living spaces that we have created. Its going to be difficult to replicate, especially now that we are downsizing. We have loved living here.
