A a charming semi-detached Victorian house in a popular residential street in Rusthall village.
As it is only a stone's throw away from the centre of Tunbridge Wells with its excellent commuter links, bustling shops and café culture it really delivers the best of both worlds.
Retaining much of its original charm and character, including period fireplaces and high ceilings, it has the benefit of a converted second floor making it a substantial family home.

Inside, the hallway is bright with a decorative radiator cabinet and crisply painted cream walls making it a smart and welcoming space.

Paneled double doors at the rear can cleverly extend the living room into the dining room to give you excellent entertaining space when the need arises.
The dining room itself, also accessed from the hallway, is linked seamlessly by the same warm wooden flooring and has plenty of space for a large dining table and chairs.
Conveniently placed behind is the kitchen whose honey coloured wooden units contrast beautifully with the eye-catching wall and floor tiling. A sink placed under the window to enable you to keep an eye on the children playing in the garden and space for a table and chairs make it a great family room.
Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor, a bright and spacious landing has three bedrooms and a family bathroom leading off it. The master bedroom, with two fitted wardrobes, stretches the width of the house and is flooded with light from its two front windows, one of which is a beautiful bay.
The second floor has a further delightful double bedroom with excellent storage space. A large modern shower room with walk in shower completes the floor.
