Victorian end of terrace town house with spacious accommodation just a short walk from the mainline station of Tunbridge Wells yet with a lovely open outlook.
This beautifully presented Victorian town house is both charming on the inside and out and is situated in a picturesque position opposite an area of common land with a large duck pond. The property has been sympathetically restored, and accordingly retains the original ornate exterior architecture with many additional internal period features including cornicing, high ceilings, and a fireplace in the second bedroom. However, modern conveniences such as gas central heating and a recently installed boiler ensure that the house remains warm in the chillier months. The house has also had all windows replaced with sympathetic double glazed units which blend well with the property’s architectural style. New facia boards, soffits and guttering have been installed by the current owners, with interior plastering carried out where necessary. This property’s strong position close to the excellent schools of Tunbridge Wells, the mainline railway station and the historic Pantiles with its niche shops, restaurants and bars, means that it will appeal to a range of buyers, including families and commuters.
The glossy front door leads into the hallway with an attractive staircase to the first floor and doors to the spacious accommodation of a well-equipped refurbished kitchen/diner and sitting room. The open plan kitchen has plenty of wooden cabinetry and worktops, with an integrated oven and hob and extractor hood. There is also space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher. This lovely family room has a solid wooden floor in the dining area, which can easily accommodate 6 people. The comfortable sitting room to the front of the property is double aspect and is extremely spacious.
The first floor features 2 double bedrooms, and a single bedroom. Both of the larger rooms could be the principal bedroom with one having fitted wardrobes and the other being double aspect with an attractive feature fireplace. Currently, the third bedroom is used as an office but could be a children’s bedroom, playroom or studio depending on requirements. The family bathroom has a walk in shower and bath and attractive pine cabinetry, and there is also a separate cloakroom with toilet and washbasin. A part-boarded loft with lighting is accessed from the first floor landing.
The property is approached through metal gates attached to restored pillars, with mature trees and an attractive balustrade wall screening the property from the road. A gravel drive provides off road parking for 2-3 cars with the entrance door located at the side of the property in an enclosed courtyard garden. This offers easy maintenance and is a perfect place for al fresco dining, barbeques and relaxation.
27 Eridge Road is ideally situated on the favoured south side of the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells which has an array of restaurants, shops and leisure facilities. The historic Pantiles area is easily accessible, with its elegant colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll. For further shopping opportunities, Royal Victoria Place is close at hand, 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. Alternatively, there is a direct commuter coach service to Canary Wharf from opposite the property, with a guaranteed seat, heating, all considerably less expensive than the train!
