Shared Ownership Medway
A collection of one, two and three bedroom properties for sale
Located on the banks of the dreamy River Medway and home to some of the best coastal regions East of London, Medway is a county brimming with natural landscapes and relaxing sea fonts. Offering its residents the idyllic countryside while being commuter friendly for those who work in London, Medway is the perfect place to settle down. Home to ancient castles, beautiful greenspaces and caring communities, a move to Medway will be a welcomed one indeed.
Steeped in History, Wonderfully Modern
If you’re in search of the perfect home somewhere with a sense of culture, history and creativity then Medway certainly delivers. Home to Rochester Castle, Rochester Cathedral as well as Upnor Castle and a whole host of museums, finding somewhere just as in touch with its history, as well as its future, will be a challenge. The area is decorated with historic high streets and a trip into the quirky Rochester will have you lost within the leaning alleyways and cobbled streets that Charles Dickens once fell in love with. The housing scape around here also exudes the same Victorian charm that gives Medway its historic appeal, with plenty of Victorian villas, charismatic cottages and georgian terraces. And you simply can’t forget the iconic Chatham Docklands Heritage site that stretches 400 acres and is just as enjoyable on an early evening walk along the babbling waterways, as it is to take the kids at the weekend and explore some maritime secrets.
The Perfect Work/Life balance
Medway is undeniably a favourite for London commuters, not only for the direct trains from Chatham to Victoria Station in less than an hour via the Southeastern line, but the escape to the green spaces of Medway after a long day in the cosmopolis can be a real breath of fresh air. The area is home to plenty of riverside walks as well as Capstone Farm Country Park, Darland Banks gardens and a range of golf clubs and recreation centres. There’s even an indoor ice rink that hosts everything from ice hockey to musical performances. Getting the balance right in Medway is easy, with the Kent countryside on your doorstep, quick access to the capital and even trains on hand into mainland Europe. The area boasts countless coastal walks, an array of piers and picturesque lookout points as well as a whole new development of cafes, bars, homes and restaurants along the waterfront.
