About Benfleet, Hadleigh & Thundersley
Located some 30 miles east of the City of London on the north bank of the Thames Estuary, the mainland portion of Castle Point Borough - which also encompasses Canvey Island - is primarily based around three historically separate settlements, which gradually merged during the 20th century. The residential areas are now said to have the highest proportion of owner occupancy in the country - which speaks volumes for the quality of life here!
The area, made up of the SS7 postcode district, benefits with an abundance of houses and bungalows alongside purpose-built flats, making it the ideal location for everyone.
With origins dating back to Roman times, and the site of a little-known 9th century battle between the Anglo Saxons and Viking raiders, the town of Benfleet is ideally situated for commuters, with its own station on one of the most efficient railway lines in the South East, with rush hour journey times taking as little as 37 minutes. Day to day shopping needs are well catered for by a range of traditional independent high street retailers.
Initially centred on an ancient hilltop site, crowned by a 12th-century church that can be seen from miles around, Thundersley still retains something of a semi-rural village character, although it has now expanded far beyond its original boundaries. It has its own small parades of local shops, and boasts several attractive areas of woodland that are open to the public.
Hadleigh has a bustling central shopping area, but is best known today for hosting the mountain biking events for the 2012 London Olympics on a purpose-built track across the nearby wooded downs overlooking the estuary and dominated by the dramatic ruins of the town's medieval castle.
Property in Benfleet ranges from the magnificent mansion houses on Benfleet Road, to comfortable bungalows usually situated on generous plots and purpose built flats conveniently located for South Benfleet station - which services the needs of commuters from both Benfleet and Canvey Island.
With such broad scope in property it's no wonder estate agents love the area!
Whether it's for families looking at houses to grow up together in, young couples buying flats to put themselves on the property ladder or those for whom bungalows make the ideal home; Benfleet is the place to be and Fisks Estate Agents know that.
The area has a fluid property market, with Essex and the SS7 postcode specifically named as one of the fastest moving markets of 2015/16. Whether they have houses for
