This stylish apartment spans the entire lower ground floor of a beautiful detached Victorian conversion.
Conveniently accessed through a side gate, a set of covered steps wind you down to an enclosed porch through a wrought iron gate to the flat`s private entrance.
Entering through its own front door into a wide hallway, neutral and fresh décor contrasts beautifully with warm parquet wooden flooring. There is plenty of storage with cupboards at both ends, the one at the rear being a deep double walk in cupboard with shelving.
First on your right is the cosy living/dining room with its front aspect windows framing a perfect dining space. A side aspect glazed door brightens the room further and gives access to the apartment`s private garden terrace and communal gardens beyond. The room has ample room for a deep sofa and a dining table and chairs and its wood burning stove sat in a feature period fireplace adds character to the room and warmth in the colder months.
Next door the beautiful master bedroom is spacious and light with its calming neutral décor and wall of fitted wardrobes.
Across the hallway is the stunning modern bathroom with a double walk in shower enclosure with rainwater shower head, panel enclosed bath and vanity unit with wash hand basin which create a relaxing and contemporary bathing experience. There is also a deep utility cupboard with space and plumbing for an appliance and shelving for linen.
The stylish kitchen is wonderfully bright, with contrasting work surfaces separating integrated appliances and room for freestanding appliances.
Contemporary tiles and a window conveniently placed above the sink make it a very welcoming space.
The second bedroom at the far end of the hallway is also a good-sized light and airy room with plenty of space for bedroom furniture.
Outside and also accessed from the living/dining room is the apartment`s own garden terrace sat below the communal garden level making it private and secluded. It is mostly decked and with a semi-circular wall of seating it has plenty of room to sit and enjoy the summer sun. An area of communal lawn gives extra external space.
With its generous room proportions, proximity to the local shops and fantastic commuter links on its doorstep, this apartment is a must see!

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 towards Garlinge Road`s end of the village, 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. Garlinge Road is also within the catchment areas for the 5 highly regarded and sought after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.
