“I bought the house about 10 years ago and it was in a somewhat parlous state. The lower ground floor was completely derelict and the ground floor was not much better. However I fell in love with the atmosphere of the place as well as the views, the parking space and the nearness to the town centre, Over the years I have enjoyed doing it up and am particularly proud of the kitchen and dining area and really love spending time in the first floor sitting room. We really enjoy Whitstable and will be staying in the area but feel it is time to consider something larger with a view to our future needs.
It is lovely being able to walk into town. Whitstable is a charming town full of individual shops, bars and restaurants as well as the harbour where you can buy the famous Whitstable oysters as well as a wide variety of other delicious fish. At the same time the station can whisk you to St Pancras on the high speed train in an hour and a quarter while the Thanet Way for London, Canterbury and the Thanet towns is close by.
There is a good primary school in the town and excellent state and private secondary schools are available in Canterbury. There is the Crab and Winkle route between Canterbury and Whitstable for cyclists and plenty of places to enjoy a walk with the dog. For golfing enthusiasts there is the Whitstable and Seasalter golf club that also includes 10 pin bowling, tennis and water sports and if you want more choice there is also the Chestfield Golf club, while sailors can join the Whitstable Yacht Club or the Tankerton sailing club”.
