Canvey Island, SS8

We opened our Canvey Island Office in 1965 in the town centre and have remained a high street focussed estate agent ever since.  The office has local staff who have expert knowledge on the property market and the area as a whole as many live on Canvey and would never live anywhere else.

About Canvey Island

Situated on the Thames Estuary some 30 miles from London, and with evidence of human activity dating back to Roman times, Canvey was systematically reclaimed during the 17th century by skilled Dutch engineers, many of whom subsequently settled here. To this day, around a third of the roads on the island have names of Dutch origin.

Known locally as ‘the Island', Canvey is comprised of the SS8 postcode and boasts often unique and varied houses and bungalows, along with desirably flats in both purpose-built and converted units.

Thanks to development in recent years, Canvey offers a wide range of exceptionally reasonably-priced property, from first time buyer apartments to detached executive homes - many with stunning views across to the wooded Hadleigh Downs, and along the estuary towards Southend.

With excellent rail connections into the City from neighbouring Benfleet station, Canvey is today permanently connected to the mainland via two road bridges, offering fast access to the M25 and East Anglia via the A12 trunk road. However the island still manages to preserve an independent character and a vibrant community spirit all its own.

All day-to-day shopping needs are fully catered for on the island in the town centre, while leisure and entertainment amenities range from a new multi-screen cinema to historic smugglers' pubs. The island is also home to Castle Point Golf Club, while the recently refurbished Waterside Farm sports centre provides a range of facilities including a swimming pool, athletics track and full-size artificial football pitch. Meanwhile, for lovers of sailing, there are two yacht clubs located on the island.

Canvey is noted for its sea-wall walks and the extensive RSPB nature reserve.

Canvey has two Secondary Schools and a good choice of conveniently located Primary and Infant and Junior Schools.
