SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This semi-detached 4-bedroom house sits on the popular Queens Road in the sought after St Johns quarter of Tunbridge Wells. It is a short walk from first class grammar schools and mainline stations making it perfect for families with professional needs.
A handsome exterior of dove grey and cream paintwork and black iron railings leads you up its traditionally tiled path to a smart part glazed entrance door. As you step into the immaculate hallway the long sloping glass roof ahead draws your eye to the treetops beyond flooding the space with natural light.
The ground floor's two generous double bedrooms both with fitted cupboards and period features are split by the central stairs taking you up to the first floor.
At the top of the carpeted stairs a half landing leads you into bedroom four at the rear. Its lovely garden views, pretty fireplace and graceful proportions of the period give a very tranquil feeling.
Across the landing is the modern family bathroom with the bath cleverly inset with shower above. A high window reflects light off its white fittings and contemporary tiles for a soothing bathing experience.
Next door bedroom three with its shuttered windows overlooking the street and period fireplace is a restful space to relax in at the end of a long day.
Returning to the ground floor hallway a cleverly designed glass roof overhead leads you down the stairs to the lower ground floor living areas delighting you with leafy green garden views as you go.
Light pours into the living room from its rear bi-fold doors flooding the room with light which has plenty of room for sofas. The rear doors can fold back to extend your living space onto the terrace in the warmer months which slopes downwards to the green and peaceful oasis beyond bringing the beautiful garden in.
Returning to the house with a useful downstairs shower room off the living area, a glazed door takes you through to the dining room in the middle of the lower ground floor. With original windows acting as internal focal points, warm wooden flooring and an exposed brick chimney breast with iron insert make this a very cosy and welcoming retreat.
The pretty kitchen at the front of the house is well designed with plenty of cream cabinetry topped off with speckled brown granite work tops. The room is dappled with light from the window and part glazed stable door which provide street access to the front and enable you to star gaze as you wash up. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine, fridge freezer and dishwasher whilst an oven with four ring gas hob and overhead extractor complete the room.
The lush green garden with graduating tiers of lawn, mature shrubs and trees and vegetable patch stretch down as far as the eye can see. It is well screened offering leafy privacy making it perfect for summer entertaining and delivering a picturesque view from the inside. A garden studio at the rear is the perfect spot for escaping the commute, enjoying hobbies or for the kids to use as a den.
