“We built our home some fifteen years ago to reflect our love of Italian architecture and the relaxed Italian lifestyle. Everything was carefully selected to the highest specification and with creative flair. It is a splendid home for entertaining family and friends and has been a focal point for our children and grandchildren as they can play in the park and take a very short walk to the beach at Minnis Bay in a couple of minutes or enjoy the games room.
The house and garden is a wonderful retreat from the rigours of the city and the sea views from the villa could encourage any owner to spend more time working from home, especially as the house has a separate study and a separate large home office with views of the fountain and courtyard. We often take a break to enjoy a freshly made ground coffee whilst sitting in our coffee corner overlooking the park and of an evening, marveling at the spectacular sunsets as the sun slips slowly beneath the horizon into the sea. The villa is easy to maintain, as we have faux grass to the rear garden. This means that if you don’t want to spend all your time at the house, it can be closed up without concern about the garden needing much attention.
Although the villa is in a peaceful and quiet location, we are only a minute’s walk from a parade of shops which include a café, an Ale House, 2 hair salons, a good fish & chip shop and a well-stocked corner shop. The nearby village of Birchington has a railway station with a good direct route to Victoria Station and routes to St Pancras and Charing Cross stations. It is also full of individual shops, an excellent farm shop with butchers and fresh fish counter, two supermarkets, delicatessen, bakeries, beauty salons and nail bars, café’s, bars, pubs and a good selection of restaurants. These include a steak house, Turkish, Chinese and Indian restaurants and various takeaways.”
