Property description

Family home within walking distance of schools & high street!
Miles & Barr are extremely pleased to be offering this deceptively spacious two bedroom end terrace family home located within easy reach of Birchington's main high street and popular local schools. Internally the property boasts two double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor with a lounge, separate dining room, modern fitted kitchen, downstairs WC, new gas central heating system and further reception/bedroom located to the side. Externally there is a low maintenance rear garden with access into a 14ft garage/workshop with further off street parking for up to two vehicles. In our opinion the property is well presented throughout having been mostly refurbished within the past two and a half years. An early internal viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate all that this charming home has to offer.

Birchington was once considered ‘the epitome of modest’. That statement may still be considered. Understated opulence: A wealth of late Victorian and Edwardian properties stand alongside flint or cliff-top cottages - Birchington really does have something for everyone. An array of bakers, an ice cream parlour and vintage shops make Birchington the perfect village location to base yourself if you still need to commute to the City. Located just minutes from the A299 with a journey of approximately 75 minutes to the O2 Arena and Greenwich. Of course if you’d like a stress-free journey then just take the train from Birchington straight through to London Victoria. Travel in the other direction and just three stops along you’ll be able to enjoy the seaside towns of Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. There are a number of schools within the village from nursery through to Secondary education and a doctor’s surgery. Those who enjoy sport will find a magnificent 18-hole golf club, windsurfing along Minnis Bay, (not forgetting the atmospheric Minnis Bar & Restaurant) endless miles of promenade for serious runners, gentle beach-top walks or just follow the Viking Trail bike rides. A popular residential area for young families, London commuters, second home purchasers and retired couples.
