HOUSE FOR SALE
Where to live in Herne Bay became our main concern after having decided that that would be the area of Kent that where we would buy our house. We started walking the length of the town and studying maps and reports. These were our top considerations when we were narrowing down our search. I hope they’ll be helpful for you too.
That is how we narrowed down our search to the area of Herne Bay to the east of Canterbury Road and the north of the railway line. Much of this area is part of a conservation zone that includes some really stunning architecture.
The Edwardian and Victorian semis and detached houses in this area tend to have larger gardens than the mainly terrace houses to the west of Canterbury Road. Everything is more spaced out so there’s never any problem parking (and there’s no permit scheme). When tourists come in the summer, they don’t seem to venture east of Canterbury Road.
The area is several meters above the centre of the town so it doesn’t suffer from the same flood risk. And unlike Beltinge, it’s still possible to walk from this area to the main supermarkets, local shops and leisure centre within about ten minutes.
