Set in a neat and contemporary purpose-built block screened from the road by well stocked flower beds and leafy trees, you will be immediately struck by its smart exterior.

A hard surface driveway with parking for several cars sits in front of the building, with a glazed communal entrance welcoming you into a bobby with lift facilities.

There is an on-site house manager, a residents' lounge for socialising and even a guest suite for family and friends to visit.

The apartment's own entrance door opens into a wide hallway with three fitted cupboards to keep the space clutter free.

Straight ahead is bedroom one which is a generous double with fitted wall cupboards and a large window bringing in lots of natural light.

Next door, bedroom two is currently set up as a home office.

Opposite is the shower room and separate cloakroom.

At the far end is the living/dining room with sliding glass doors that open onto the sit on balcony, extending the living space in the warmer months. It has plenty of room for a sofa and a table and chairs and opens into the kitchen.

The well separated kitchen area forms an open U space at the far end of the living room enabling you to chat to friends and family as you prepare dinner. Plenty of units topped with wooden effect work surfaces are separated by room for appliances.

This popular retirement building is close to Dunorlan and Grosvenor & Hilbert parks, is a short walk from the mainline station and within easy reach of the town centre. A must see!

Area Information: Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Tunbridge Wells, steeped in royal history and architectural heritage, also provides a wealth of modern-day shopping, entertaining and recreational facilities.

As it is a mere 30 miles south of London and sits amidst glorious Kent countryside it is a highly sought-after area for property owners.

The historic Pantiles offers a vibrant al fresco café culture with independent boutiques stretching up to the old High Street. Your every shopping need is satisfied, however, as the more modern-day Royal Victoria Place Shopping Centre offers comprehensive shopping facilities from department stores and national chains. There is also a great variety of shopping and eateries at the Kingstanding Business Park on Longfield Road just a short drive away, including M& S Home and John Lewis.

Excellent local primary schools such as St Matthew's and St John's Primary Schools sit alongside the highly regarded and sought-after girls' and boys' grammar schools. With several additional exceptional state secondary schools in its borough and the renowned Tonbridge and Sevenoaks Schools on its doorstep, parents are definitely spoilt for choice.

Recreational amenities such as Dunorlan and Grosvenor Parks, Calverly Grounds, the Assembly Hall Theatre, Nevill Golf Club and St Johns Sports Centre offer an abundance of leisure facilities. There is also the Knights Park Leisure Centre close by with a cinema, gym and bowling alley in its complex.

With its two stations, High Brooms which is only 1.5 miles from the house and Tunbridge Wells, Tunbridge Wells is a commuters dream as even in off-peak there are up to four trains an hour to London Charing Cross in 50-minute journey times or less.

Finally, the M25 with its links to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports is accessible via the A21 which lies just north of Tunbridge Wells.
