Our Time Here - The situation of the property and the sea views from the lounge and master bedroom was our initial attraction. We liked the fact that it was positioned just out of town, but was a pleasant walk to the centre.
The house was built in 1901 and although we have modernised it during the time we have lived here, we have endeavoured to retain its character.
We absolutely love this house and living in it, and we have many favourite features. We particularly like the beautiful panelled hall, the spacious layout and secluded garden. And who could forget the open view facing the sea! The ever changing view even in bad weather is fascinating and we have never been bored with our outlook.
There are local shops and a supermarket less than a 15 minute walk from the house. A new Aldi store will soon open in the town centre. The local primary school is Hampton, which again, is about the same distance away. There are several grammar schools in the area; the nearest being in Canterbury, about 8 miles from here. There is additionally a regular train service to Medway and London from the station, which you can walk to in around 20 minutes.
Herne Bay is a progressive town and a lot of energy has gone into sea front improvements recently, with new events being created all the time. There are many activities for people of all ages.
This is a very happy house and we are leaving very reluctantly because it is time to move on. Having our grandchildren over and enjoying the sea brings back happy memories.
