An extremely spacious, light and airy 2-bedroom, first floor apartment with allocated parking and a fabulous south-west facing roof terrace giving far-reaching views, situated within an attractive period property, just a few minutes’ walk from the High Street of Tunbridge Wells.
This 2-bedroom first floor apartment has so much to offer its new owners. Located within an impressive period building with high ceilings and elegant sash windows, it is enviably positioned in the heart of the vibrant village area of Tunbridge Wells, with every amenity on its doorstep. The entrance hallway grants access to all the rooms and has a useful storage cupboard situated close to the front door. The 2 bedrooms are located at the end of the hallway, adjacent to the bathroom, the second with ample fitted wardrobes.
This elevated location gives the roof terrace the most spectacular views across the neighbouring rooftops and to the Ashdown Forest beyond. Furthermore, the westerly aspect means that this is a space from which afternoon and evening sun can be enjoyed, with stunning sunsets often as a backdrop. Internally, the property is beautifully presented, with the current owners having invested heavily in a new kitchen, bathroom, carpets and redecoration throughout. Overall, this is a peaceful, stylish, light filled apartment, which combines period charm with a superb roof terrace and coveted off-road parking, all in a first class location from which to enjoy the extensive amenities that the town has to offer.
The village is a highly coveted area in which to live, thanks to its beautiful period architecture, close proximity to the shops, restaurants and mainline station, and extensive green open spaces and historical parks. Normally such a location comes at the expense of private outside space and parking, unless a buyer has a generous budget! However, this flat does not have this usual compromise, and indeed with the roof terrace is more spacious and light filled than many houses in the area. The light aspect is continued inside, thanks to the large sash windows throughout and the property’s elevated position on Mount Sion.
A fully tarmacked driveway off from Mount Sion leads to the property with clearly defined parking spaces per apartment situated opposite the building. There is a communal hallway with a lift to access the higher floors, and a cupboard for utility meters.
One of the real highlights of this property is its fabulous location. Situated in the heart of the vibrant spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, there are restaurants, cafes, shops and beautiful parks on its doorstep. The mainline station is a few steps away, as is the wonderful High Street and its variety of well-regarded restaurants and independent outlets. The historic Pantiles with its elegant colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll is also easily accessible. Further shopping opportunities are available at Royal Victoria Place and the award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is under 30 miles distant. If you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns are easily accessible by car or public transport. There are many independent and state schooling options in the area, including those in the much sought-after Kent Grammar system and the mainline station offers a fast and frequent service to Central London.
The property is offered on a leasehold basis and has an unexpired lease of 105 years. The current service and maintenance charge is £1600 per annum and the ground rent is £250 pa. Pets are not allowed in the building, and the property is connected to mains gas, electricity, water and sewerage.
