The seafront and Marina have developed into a thriving area of cafes, restaurants, and creative shops.

With regular live music and popular events held, these bring a strong sense of community as more people flock to the seaside to appreciate the local architecture and proximity to the coast. The location of this flat is ideal for locals and commuters, with two nearby train stations, easy access to the town centre, and A21 and A259. There are great local amenities including a post office, large Co-op, and doctor's surgery.

"There is nowhere else I would rather be, than idly spending time in our living room, or cooking in the kitchen looking out to sea. Our hearts and refurbishment experience put everything into creating a seaside retreat, and we love spending time here. The sound proofing was essential to us, as we know so many converted apartments have noise that travels. We've lowered the ceiling, plus the flooring sealed, and ensured the highest quality of sound dampening to create an insulated space."
