The Vendor's View - We were first drawn to the shape and very quiet location of this unique property and fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. North Sea Lodge is very attractive and our favourite feature is definitely the unusual tower.
We spend most of our time in the kitchen and lounge, both of which are spacious rooms, ideal for socialising with friends, entertaining and of course, day-to-day family life. One of the things we love best about the house is the fact that it feels very safe here, an important factor when raising our children, foster children and now looking after our grandchildren.
As well as being quiet and safe, the location is surprisingly central, and you are within easy walking distance of just about anything you could possibly need. Situated on what feels like a quiet country lane, you are mere minutes from the town, all local amenities, the beach and seafront and even the train station – which is just a 2 minute walk away. Commuters will be glad to hear that you can have a very simple trip to London in just an hour and a half from the front door!
This area is renowned for great schools for children of all ages including good local primary, secondary and grammar schools. Being so close to the beach and the countryside, it’s ideal for growing children.
We have been very happy here for 33 years and we will miss the space that it has offered our family over the years as it has changed and grown. We will look back on our time here with very fond memories and hope to find our new home in the local area.
