Belmont Red Street | Southfleet | DA13 9QH


Seller Insight We love character properties and our first home was a weatherboard house so when we saw Belmont, we immediately fell in love with the stunning views, character, white weatherboard and unusual windows,” say the current owners. “We’ve lived here for over 25 years and have made a number of enhancements to Belmont, including the addition of the substantial extension which gave us a large open plan dining and living area, huge bedroom and en suite bathroom. We love open plan living and the flow of kitchen, dining and living area works brilliantly. The wood burner makes it so cosy in the winter and two sets of French doors flood the rooms with sun during the summer months. Our second living room means that our children (now grown up!) have a separate room and TV for entertaining. The living space is very flexible, including the cellar that was used as a playroom but is now a handy storage area.” “The location is fabulous. We enjoy walking from the back garden into the fields beyond and there are some beautiful walks that we can access without having to get into the car. We can easily walk to two pubs, each with very different characters and it’s great being so close to Ebbsfleet which gives us easy access to London. We love living in a village that has so many facilities, schools and supermarkets within such a short drive.” “We enjoy spending time in our lovely garden that is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. We keep chickens and have a couple of raised beds for vegetables, as well as established flower beds, shrubs and fruit trees. Above all though, the view of fields is amazing and makes the garden seem so much bigger.” “It’s hard to choose just one favourite room but I do really love my huge bedroom with a whole wall of wardrobes. Also, the walk-in showers have completely transformed the bathrooms.” “My grandparents lived in Southfleet, so I have always known the village. Surrounded by fields and with a friendly village atmosphere, it’s a little slice of countryside in an otherwise urban area with all the benefits of town living nearby.” “We’ve had many family celebrations here. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with about 100 guests in a marquee in the garden.” “We are staying in Southfleet as we love the village, but we felt that after 25 years we wanted a change. It will be hard to leave though, and we will miss the view!”* * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.
