This charming period property has been loved and cared for over generations within the same family for more than 100 years. It is a rare opportunity to find a cottage that is fine as it is, but also has huge potential for a loft conversion. The garden has three brick built outhouses and an outside toilet. One of these are a workshop fitted out with a carpenters workbench, vice, storage and shelving. The walls have been insulated to create a perfect work space for either a tradesman or to use as a home office - or man cave! The garden has a decked area that is a sun trap. There is a further patio, pond and a secret garden tucked away. There is a gate that will lead you out to a field and into Dunorlan Park. There is a post office, local shop and butchers within a few minutes walk. A further two parks and primary school are also very close by. If you are a tradesman, then the three brick buildings and workshop in the garden will be an absolutely perfect work space for you.

This attractive period cottage is situated on the outskirts of Royal Tunbridge Wells. However it is still within walking distance of the mainline station and ideal for commuters. It is very near to a bus route going into the town centre, where you will find the Victoria Shopping Mall built over two floors. Tunbridge Wells is popular for shoppers and also tourists visiting the famous Edwardian Pantiles Area. Where you will find beautiful architecture and an abundance of restaurants and tea shops. In the summer months the Pantiles will offer jazz, soul and gin festivals. There is also a monthly food market and lots of space for alfresco dining. Within walking distance of the cottage, there are three churches, a local supermarket with post office and a popular butchers. Three parks which include Dunorlan Park - accessed via a private gate in the garden and ideal for doggy walkers. The allotments are opposite the terrace of cottages which create peace and tranquility to this part of Tunbridge Wells.
This property is ideal for a growing family, first time buyers or a retired couple. If you are a keen gardener, then you will enjoy the allotments just over the road. This cottage is over a hundred years old and the roof was replaced 20 years ago.
There is no chain, and it is tidy and clean and ready to move into. Then, in your own time, there is potential to add a loft conversion, a corridor to the bathroom, and an opportunity to modernise inside. The added bonus of the three brick outhouses will generate a lot of interest so we recommend a viewing as soon as possible.
