We have loved living in St. Nicholas and will be disappointed when we leave. We would love for another family to win this prize, and experience what we have from living here, but with many of the homes at a higher price point because of the school being so good and because it is a such a lovely place to live, we thought we would give people that wouldn't ordinarily be able to afford to own our home, the chance to do so. Additionally people that want a quieter life, in a rural village with fabulous neighbours that genuinely care about each other.

It is a three bedroom semi-detached family home located in the quiet cul-de-sac location of Bridges Close, St Nicholas-at-Wade. Ideally situated within easy reach of St Nicholas' highly sought after school, popular pubs and village shop, this beautifully presented home boasts three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, with a lounge, separate sitting room, modern fitted kitchen and downstairs WC on the ground floor. Externally there is surrounding gardens and off street parking.

The House

Situated between the historic town of Canterbury and the seaside towns of Birchington and Herne Bay, is the semi-rural village of St. Nicholas-at-Wade. Originally named after the Patron Saint of sailors, it is reputed that there was once a channel of water one had to wade across to reach the village. St. Nicholas-at-Wade is proud of its village hall dating from the 1930’s and its sports field with cricket pavilion in Bell Meadow that hosts cricket matches and of course, not forgetting the Church dating back to Norman times.

If you’re looking for rural village life that is still only a 10 minute drive to the beautiful Kentish beaches and 20 minutes to historic Canterbury, then this could be the ideal spot for you. St Nicholas-at-Wade boasts one of the most sought after primary schools in Thanet with an outstanding Ofsted report, two local pubs serving exceptional food and a village shop with post office. The high speed rail link and M2 to London are also only a short drive away along with regular and varied bus routes both in and out of Thanet. Properties vary from unique period cottages to prestigious barn conversions with family houses and detached properties with land. St Nicholas-at-Wade is an extremely popular area catering for those looking for a quieter pace of life but is still near enough to satisfy those who need to be close to all amenities.
