Beautifully presented and charming semi-detached house, embracing open plan living, and with 2 double bedrooms, a converted loft space and west facing, fully enclosed rear garden.
This charming late Victorian property is situated in a popular residential road within Rusthall, typified by period properties. The current owners have refurbished the property during their occupation and accordingly the house is now presented in lovely condition, with the benefit of a newly refurbished contemporary kitchen. The layout is very successful, with an open plan living and dining room, featuring a fireplace with wood burning stove, French doors to the rear garden and also leading to the well configured kitchen, with space for a range cooker and a good selection of wall and base units. This in turn links to the useful utility room, with back door to the rear garden, and perfect for washing appliances and further storage. Upstairs there are 2 good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom, which is a very generous size and accordingly has room for a bath, separate shower cubicle and linen cupboard. On the top floor is the loft room, which the current owners are using as a bedroom, and which also provides valuable eaves storage space.
The property has a small area of garden to the front, and a larger garden to the rear, which is low maintenance, fitted with no-mow grass and a stone terrace. There is also a garden shed, perfect for storing garden implements. The house has a side return with gate, which also provides access to the rear garden.
This house has an incredibly welcoming and homely feel, achieved by the lovely flow of accommodation, the warming woodburning stove and the tasteful décor that the current owners have incorporated throughout the house. The contemporary kitchen is a great space – perfect for cooking whilst remaining connected to the rest of the property and also distinct to the utility room, where laundry appliances and further storage is found. Indeed the small additions of the rear utility room and the loft room create valuable extra space that is not often found in these properties. Accordingly you have a house that has a deceptive amount of space, with the core rooms such as the living room and bedrooms having perfect proportions, and valuable additional rooms creating more space if required.
The rear garden is also very well thought through, with easy maintenance paired with an attractive aspect. Finally, we love the location: Southwood Road is a very popular road in Rusthall, leading to the attractive park with wide open spaces and children’s play area, and also being within easy distance of the High Street, with its range of independent shops and cafes.
Rusthall has excellent amenities for day to day supplies and the village is within easy walking distance of the property. The vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells is just over one mile distant and has an array of restaurants, shops, and leisure facilities. There is also a fast and frequent train service to London. There are many independent and state schooling options in the area, including those in the much sought-after Kent Grammar system. The impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is only 45 minutes' drive away and if you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns can also be reached in under an hour.
