Beautifully presented 4 bedroom detached Victorian Coach House situated on the southern side of Tunbridge Wells within easy walking distance of The Pantiles and mainline station and with a secluded west facing garden.
This 4 bedroom house is superbly presented throughout and is on the market for the first time in 30 years. The current owners have sympathetically refurbished and upgraded the property to create extremely versatile and flexible accommodation. Stairs lead from the large reception hall up to the upper levels and an inner entrance hall leads you into the good sized living room with log burning stove. The ground floor bathroom/cloakroom is fitted with a bath and shower over with tongue and groove panelling on the walls and luxury Amtico tiles on the floor. Both ground floor bedrooms are spacious double rooms with fitted wardrobes. The first floor master suite is a real feature and incorporates a bedroom, bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle and dressing area with eaves storage. Also on this floor is the second double bedroom which is filled with light thanks to it triple aspect with views of the garden. There is also a small home working/study area completely fitted out as a home office with worktops and drawers. The orangery or conservatory is built of painted hardwood and is double glazed. Linden Cottage is situated in the popular Broadwater Down area of Tunbridge Wells with its picturesque lime trees and has gas central heating and super fast fibre broadband. It is conveniently situated for the mainline railway station, which is just a 20 minute walk away and The Mead and Broadwater Down and St Marks schools are all within easy distance.
The well-planned kitchen has luxury Amtico tiles on the floor, and wooden units with granite worktops and plenty of integrated appliances. It provides plenty of room for casual dining and entertaining. French doors lead out onto an attractive and private walled terrace area. A small utility cupboard has room for laundry appliances and also houses a Worcester Bosch boiler, which is approx. 8 years old and has been regularly serviced. A light and bright square living room will be easy to furnish and is comfortable on cold winter evenings thanks to its woodburning stove. Leading from this room is the orangery, built to a high specification and constructed of solid wall with a tiled floor. On the ground floor there are two further rooms which could either serve as ground floor bedrooms or further reception space. Stairs up lead to the two double bedrooms on the first floor, one of which is the master with a large dressing area and ensuite bathroom. There is also a smaller room, perfect as a home study, with a linen cupboard and eaves storage off the landing.
This is a truly unique property, bursting with typical features of the Victorian period. It has 4 bedrooms with 2 on the first floor, which are highly flexible spaces and accordingly can be adapted to meet the new owners’ needs. Indeed the second double bedroom on the ground floor would suit elderly family members, as it has a fitted wardrobe and French doors leading out to the garden. We love the plantation shutters, quality wooden double glazed windows and the superb orangery extension, which could be used as a sitting area or dining room. The house is light and bright, with excellent storage and room proportions. Complementing this property perfectly is a totally enclosed west-facing garden, which is completely private and secluded. The location is quite exceptional as it is close to local amenities as well as there being many lovely places to walk nearby including strolls to The Pantiles, Hargate Forest and High Rocks. The property will suit those who want to downsize, as well as a family thanks to the versatility of the living space, and also those who work from home and commuters.
The delightful rear garden has a westerly aspect and a generous lawned area as well as an outhouse for storage of garden implements and furniture. Not being overlooked it provides a secluded and safe environment. A terrace with Indian sandstone tiles is accessed from the orangery and leads onto the garden with a beautiful feature tree. The walled terrace area is accessed from the kitchen and living room and gets the sun in the morning, so is perfect for enjoying an early coffee and breakfast. Parking for 2 cars and storage facilities are provided by the separate double garage, and there is further off street parking for 3 cars as well as street parking which is unrestricted.
