LOCATION:
Leith Park Road is a popular location, on the edge of Windmill Hill and within 0.5 miles walking distance of the town centre & mainline Railway Station. Windmill Hill is a point of interest where you can enjoy fantastic views over the town centre with the historic river Thames beyond. There is a children's play area up on the hill and at the bottom of the hill you will find Windmill Gardens, a bowling green and tennis courts, literally within a few minutes walk of the property.

The mainline railway station makes it perfect for commuters offering a high speed service to London St Pancras in just 23 minutes or you can take the domestic train to London, which stops at Waterloo, London Bridge and Charing Cross or travel to the Medway towns or the Kent Coast. Ebbsfleet international railway station is also within a few miles which offers a high speed service to London in just 17 minutes. The A2 is easily accessible with links to the M2, M20 & M25. Bluewater shopping centre with its array of shops and restaurants is just a bus or car journey away if you fancy some retail therapy, dining with friends in one of their many restaurants and cafe bars or a trip to the cinema.

The property is located within the catchment area of a choice of good primary, secondary and grammar schools, including Gravesend Grammar School for boys and Mayfield Grammar Schools for Girls, which are within walking distance, making it a perfect place for families to live.
