The Vendor's View - It was the 180° sea view that really sold this house to us, sitting on the top of the cliff above Grenham Bay, with the most amazing ever-changing panorama. The location provides the best of both worlds, being easy to access London, and yet living in a countryside property, in a safe and quiet seaside village. It’s just gorgeous.

The three best things about this property are the view, the space and the light. Even on the darkest, stormiest day in winter the house is filled with light as there is so much glass. Children love the huge swimming pool complex in the garden, and we have always had plenty of space for family and friends to stay.

The location has been very convenient for me, as I have been working in London and the daily commute from Birchington train station on the high-speed line is straightforward. The station and the village centre are both within walking distance. Westwood Cross with all its shopping and leisure facilities is just a ten minute drive away, while Canterbury is just 20 minutes away which has pretty much every shop imaginable.

We love the fact that we can take the dogs for a walk on the beach every single day. It’s a beautiful sandy bay and strolling along it feels like being on holiday.

We’re really going to miss these views and it’s going to be very hard to replicate that. We’d love to stay, but the house is just too big for us now and that is the only reason that we are moving.
