A well constructed and spacious detached house situated on a quiet no-through road in the popular High Brooms area of Tunbridge Wells, with the opportunity to update and renovate.
This solidly constructed red brick house will appeal to first time buyers, commuters and to investors, as it comprises spacious accommodation in the High Brooms area of Tunbridge Wells, with excellent potential for the new owners to refurbish and / or extend into the loft.
The front door opens to the entrance hall which serves all of the accommodation in this well laid out property. To the left is the sitting room, which features and attractive bay window and the laminate flooring, which runs throughout much of the house. There is an open fire and the room is light and bright thanks to the large bay window. The hall then leads to the three bedrooms, two of which are good doubles. All are well and neutrally presented and thanks to their large windows are filled with natural light. At the end of the hall is the spacious kitchen, which spans the whole rear width of the property and accordingly has lovely open views across the neighbouring houses. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of wall and base units and integrated Bosch appliances, and there is ample space for dining. The generous windows again ensure that this room is light and bright, and a back door leads down out to the rear garden. The loft is accessed from the hallway and is large and currently unconverted, but thanks to the generous pitch of the roof, could easily be converted to additional accommodation, as many in the road have done with the required necessary consents.
The house is set back slightly from the road, behind an attractive wall boundary and with a small area of garden to either side of the path. There is a generous side return which provides easy access to the rear of the property and which also provides valuable additional storage space, indeed the current owners have a bike/log store in this area. The rear garden is south-east facing, and has a patio area and an area of lawn. The views from the garden are lovely, thanks to the house’s elevated position. There are 2 sheds, one of which is very generous, perfect for storage of garden furniture and implements.
Undoubtedly one of the real features of this property is the excellent value for money that it presents. This generous detached, family home, situated in a quiet yet convenient location, has a great amount of accommodation space, which has the easy potential of a loft extension if so desired. Indeed this was always the current owner’s intention, but he simply found over time that for him, the extra space was not essential. The kitchen is a lovely space, feeling generous with plenty of space for preparing food and dining, and once again filled with natural light and those lovely views. The elevated position of this house is a definite bonus, making the kitchen and the rear garden strong spaces. The rear patio area is a real sun trap, perfect for enjoying those lovely views with complete seclusion. All in all, this is a light and bright, spacious home, with wonderful views and the potential to be extended and improved, all set in a highly convenient location.
