A delightful Victorian, semi-detached cottage beautifully presented and with deceptively spacious accommodation, secluded garden, and situated on this quiet road, close to local amenities and within walking distance of all the coveted grammar schools.
This four-bedroom property built in the late 1800s has generous proportions and is situated on a popular road in the St John’s Quarter of Tunbridge Wells. Its Victorian origins are evident throughout, exposed wooden boards and fireplaces, giving it a period cottage feel. However, the current owners have invested heavily in the property, and the result is a house that is now in strong condition. The accommodation consists of two separate reception spaces, one of which is currently used as a sitting room, and the second as a dining room, which in turn conveniently leads to the kitchen. The kitchen itself is a well-designed space, with ample wall and base units and a lovely light aspect thanks to its large picture window overlooking the rear garden.
There is a useful inner porch just beyond this room, and then one of the two bathrooms, with a bath and shower over. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, all of which are good doubles. Two are situated on the first floor, and a further two on the second floor, where there is also the second bathroom, this one featuring a generous shower cubicle. The garden is laid to terrace with a separate area of no-mow lawn, flanked with attractive fencing, and mature shrubs. At the base of the garden is the home office, a very generous and attractive wooden building, perfect for home working, a teenage den or studio. The house has a very convenient location, being within walking distance of St Johns high street and the more extensive amenities of Tunbridge Wells, including the shops, restaurants, cafes, schools and the mainline station.
This is a house that feels cosy and welcoming the minute you walk through the door, thanks to the period features and beautiful presentation throughout. *** The property has a very connected feel, with the downstairs accommodation well laid out for the family market, with two closely located reception spaces, one of which leads to the kitchen. The kitchen is a light and bright space, with an open aspect to the rear garden, and a door providing access. *** The rooms are all of a lovely proportion, with good ceiling heights creating a sense of space, and we love the stylish presentation throughout. *** The garden is also a real feature, being well landscaped and secluded, and the garden room provides valuable additional accommodation, perfect for a variety of needs including home working. *** The current owners have invested heavily in the property, replacing the boiler and completing a full electrical rewire, as well as creating the excellent bedroom space in the loft by replacing the velux windows with a large dormer. As a result, the house is in great condition both inside and out, and it is this beautiful presentation, combined with a house of such balanced proportions, in such a strong location with a lovely secluded garden that make it a real winner for us.
