The Vendor's View - I was first attracted to the property over 9 years ago thanks to its large size and spacious feel, its being surrounded by its own gardens on all four sides, and of course its indoor swimming pool.
Despite being built in the late 80s, the house sits very well in the street, having been constructed to sympathetically harmonise with the surrounding 1920s properties. Inside, the 1920s, feel has been continued, with an oriel window, a 1920s fire surround, Arts-and-Crafts style woodwork, and panelled doors. I love the fact that the house has all the comforts of a modern built property, and yet a distinctive period feel.
Without doubt my favourite feature is the indoor swimming pool. Because it is in the house, I often just wander into the pool room for a quick swim, while I wait for the kettle to boil or for the toast to toast.
Avenue Gardens is a quiet and attractive street, and benefits from the fact that is not directly connected to any main roads, so there is no through traffic. That being said, the house is very conveniently placed for easy access to local amenities and shops, with a supermarket close by. The area is quiet with a friendly, safe atmosphere and an affluent feel.
Thanet is highly under-rated, and is a lovely place to live. The house itself is just a few minutes walk from the beach at Palm Bay, from where you can stroll along the beaches or cliff tops to Botany Bay, Kingsgate Bay, Joss Bay, Stone Bay and then Broadstairs in one direction, or to Margate Harbour, Westbrook Bay, St Mildred’s Bay and Westgate Bay in the other. Longer walks are possible along the beaches and cliffs all the way to Ramsgate at one end or to Birchington and Minnis Bay at the other, with plenty of buses for coming back.
It’s time for a new adventure now and I am looking to relocate to the countryside. I wish I could pick up the house and garden and take them with me!
