We were drawn to this property in 2020 by its idyllic location, captivating views, seclusion, and ample space. At the time the property needed considerable updating as it had been built by the previous owners in the 1960s. We have invested a lot of time and money into an extensive remodel and modernisation inside and out, transforming it into the contemporary home you see today. The property is now ready for its next chapter, with new owners able to unpack their bags and start enjoying their new life here from day one. Birchington is a delightful place and offers a charming community with a mainline train station to London, independent local shops, dining options, schools, and recreational facilities, making it a wonderful place to live. We will certainly miss the views but are off on a new adventure to the south coast.
