The Vendor's View - It was the style of this Arts & Crafts house, along with the lovely large garden that attracted us to this property, some 10 years ago now. We understand that it was named after the architect that designed it, and we fell in love with all the art deco and quirky features, such as the fireplace in the sizeable vestibule!

Our favourite room is probably the kitchen, which is an all-encompassing living space, split into three areas. It’s great to able to cook and talk with our grandchildren while they’re playing or watching television. This is an ideal house for spending time with the family or entertaining, as the rooms are so spacious.

The garden is enormous, and home to summerhouses, sheds, poly tunnels and even an orchard. We recently had the fishpond redesigned and landscaped, and this is one of our favourite parts of the outside space now.

We love the fact that we can walk across the road and be on Dumpton Gap’s beautiful sandy beach within a minute of leaving the front door – no doubt our grandchildren’s favourite aspect of the house! You can walk from here all along the coast to Ramsgate or Broadstairs along the beach, or the clifftops if you prefer. As well as the many sandy bays in the area, we also like to visit the King George VI Memorial Park, which has a lovely glasshouse and is very popular with people for afternoon tea.

The house is set on a very quiet road with very little traffic, which is ideal for anyone with children. At the same time, it is very accessible for both road and rail links and within easy reach of the shops, bars and restaurants, as well as Westwood Cross.

We’re going to miss looking at the sea every day and enjoying the stunning sunsets. The best view however is the moonlight shining on the water, it’s the most magical and magnificent sight.
