About Orbit Homes at St Augustine's Place


Introducing Orbit Homes at St Augustine’s Place, a collection of 2 and 3 bedroom homes located just minute’s from Herne Bay’s award-winning beach. Orbit have 14 homes available here, each with allocated parking and private gardens. Our homes are available to purchase with Shared Ownership, providing an affordable path to homeownership.

Part of a wider development of up to 900 new homes, residents can enjoy contemporary designs with energy efficient features, whilst surrounded by areas of open-green space. Situated on the eastern edge of Herne Bay, all the essentials, like supermarkets, banks, a leisure centre, and a selection of schools are just minutes away.

While St Augustine’s Place provides the perfect place to escape the trappings of modern life, it is also very well connected to the city and the country.  There are direct trains to London, good road links to Gatwick Airport and the Port of Dover is less than an hour’s drive south.
