Ramsgate Property | Attractive One Bedroom Flat for Sale in Heart of Ramsgate | Â£74996
Prices for residential property in the area begin at around £30,000 for studio flats and small one or two bedroom bungalows. These smaller houses are popular with regular visitors who wish to buy a second home. Many retirees also purchase bungalows and flats when selling up elsewhere and looking to relocate to the picturesque towns of Ramsgate and Margate in particular. Some special flats and sheltered housing is available for people aged over 55. Sheltered housing is generally more accessible and often will have wardens in situ to help with any problems the residents may have.
Many bungalows offer coastal views or are situated within walking distance of the seafront, while the flats are often located above shops, in modern apartment developments or in well maintained high rise blocks. Modern flats and apartments are available in most towns in the Thanet area. In Ramsgate, these flats command rents of around £300 per month and above, but prices are generally more expensive in more vibrant, busy locations such as Canterbury. Local residents benefit from excellent public transport links and a very convenient network of railway stations serving most of the towns in Thanet.
Holiday chalets are ideal for use as second homes as they offer more bedrooms but may have limited facilities in terms of kitchens and living space. Prices for chalets are similar to those of flats and bungalows. Holiday parks often have housing for sale which is situated on the park itself, giving visitors the chance to purchase their own permanent property and base for repeat visits to Kent. Often this can be an economical alternative to purchasing a caravan.
Due to the fishing heritage in Kent, there are a number of traditional, cosy fishing cottages in coastal towns such as Whitstable. Some of these properties have been very well maintained and tastefully updated, making them ideal for family holidays. Similar terraced housing is available in larger towns such as Dover.
Many of these small cottages and quaint terraced houses are purchased for their rental potential; they are popular with visitors who enjoy holidaying on a self catering basis. Due to their historic nature, fisherman’s cottages are often located by the sea and have original features, providing a unique insight into traditional maritime life.
Farmland often comes onto the property market in Kent, and prices for a farm with arable land can easily reach millions of pounds. Large, imposing Georgian houses command similar prices and often come with extensive, spacious grounds and external facilities such as swimming pools and tennis courts. Plots of land, trackways, paddocks and even woodland plots are also available to buy in the Thanet area.
