A 2 bedroom detached bungalow presented in good condition, with further scope for modernisation and improvement and a delightful garden with a woodland backdrop, situated in a popular cul-de-sac in Tunbridge Wells.
This solid brick built bungalow is situated in a very popular location just off from Culverden Down and features well-proportioned accommodation with scope for modernisation and extension (subject to necessary consents).
The accommodation includes a welcoming entrance hall, kitchen with space for a small table, a generous sitting room, which the current owner uses as both a seating area and formal dining space, two double bedrooms and a generous bathroom. The rear garden is a definite feature, with a lovely wooded outlook making it feel private, secure and restful. To the front of the property is a tarmac driveway, bordered by an area of lawn surrounded by mature shrubs, with the driveway leading to a separate garage, which provides useful storage facilities. Derwent Drive is located in the desirable Culverden Down area of Royal Tunbridge Wells, popular due to its close proximity to excellent primary schools and the sought after grammar schools. The nearby St Johns area offers a range of cafes, restaurants and shops and the town centre is just over a mile away with its mainline railway station. This well-built property will suit families, couples, singles, commuters and developers.
We love the position of the house, which sees it set at the top of the cul de sac and therefore having a lovely open aspect to the front, whilst enjoying a wooded outlook to the rear, thanks to the school playing fields with its mature trees and hedges, that it flanks. The plot overall is of a generous size, giving it a well set back aspect with plenty of parking to the front, and a generous and secluded garden to the rear. The house itself represents a great opportunity: it is lovely that this is one of the detached properties on the road, and that whilst it is presented in good, clean, neutral condition, the light and bright accommodation could be further extended and improved, to make a really desirable town centre home.
Derwent Drive is a quiet cul-de-sac on the west side of the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells. It is well placed for the town centre, schools and the mainline station, either on foot or via public transport. Tunbridge Wells itself boasts excellent commercial and leisure facilities with well-regarded restaurants and shops, and the impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is 30 miles distant. There are excellent schooling options in the area, within both the state and independent sectors, including those in the sought-after Kent Grammar system. The mainline station offers a fast and frequent service into Central London and, if you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns are just 30 miles to the south.
