** DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY **
This period semi-detached house sits quietly on a residential road, with local shops and transport links on its doorstep, but it enjoys the best of both worlds as it is also opposite Southborough Common, which is a peaceful area of outstanding natural beauty.
Within minutes you can be in the green common and woodland beyond with its labyrinth of footpaths twisting and winding up behind the Church and village cricket green.
Currently presented as two self-contained flats, you would have the opportunity to restore it to its former glory to create a fantastic family home of Victorian proportions. With renovation, the property could offer three reception rooms, a kitchen on the ground floor, with rear garden access, four bedrooms and bathroom on the upper two floors.
Should an investor wish to retain the two separate dwellings and generate healthy rental income, the apartments are already divided and would simply require modernisation.
This substantial house in the catchment area for all the first-class schools, offers flexible accommodation over three floors with an opportunity to put your own stamp on it. A must see!

Area Information: Southborough, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
Southborough lies just a couple of miles north outside the historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells with its big retail names and its Georgian colonnade, the Pantiles, offering a vibrant café culture.
It also sits just south of Tonbridge, with the A26 passing through it offering easy access to the A21 which leads to the M25.
Southborough Common, situated opposite the house, is a conservation area where cricket has been played for more than 200 years.
If you're a runner, dog owner or casual walker, the woodland area of the Southborough Common, nestled behind St. Peters Church, is a very beautiful space. Ancient and young trees slope down to a stream with access to Holden Pond and Bidborough and Speldhurst villages beyond.
Excellent secondary, independent, preparatory and private schools can be found in both Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, while Southborough and Bidborough have their very own primary schools. Victoria Road is also within the catchment areas for the 6 highly regarded and sought after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
The nearest mainline station to Southborough is at High Brooms, about a mile away, with fast and frequent train services to London Charing Cross. There are also mainline stations on the same line at Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. Tonbridge Station is just over 2 miles away and with two lines passing through, it provides on average 34 trains a day from Tonbridge to London Bridge in as little as 35 minute journeys.
