This beautifully finished apartment is set to the front of a handsome semi- detached Victorian conversion which itself sits screened from the road behind a carriage driveway and a tall hedge.
A well maintained gravelled area leads you upwards to the shared entrance whose front door opens into a smart communal hallway of Victorian proportions.
The apartment`s own front door opens into a spacious hallway with high ceilings and period cornicing. A walk-in cupboard to the right provides the perfect spot to hang coats and store muddy boots, with plenty of additional storage space to keep the apartment clutter free.
The beautiful master bedroom oozes romance and enjoys garden views from its large sash window, enabling you to lie in bed and watch the changing seasons in comfort.
At the end of the hallway on the left is the impressive open plan reception/kitchen, bathed in natural light from its original triple sash bay window. Intelligently designed, a high ceiling and fitted alcove cabinetry add character and style to the vast room which has ample space for comfy furniture and a table and chairs for dining.
The well separated kitchen area sits neatly defined at the left-hand corner of the living room enabling you to chat to friends and family as you prepare dinner. Plenty of cream gloss units topped with contrasting black work surfaces are separated by the integrated appliances whilst the window is cleverly placed above the sink enabling you to star gaze as you wash up.
Returning to the hallway, the simple but stylish white bathroom with a modern over bath shower creates a relaxing and contemporary bathing experience.
The second bedroom at the rear is a delightful and relaxing room which itself is a good size. It has a large window overlooking the garden that can be screened for privacy by concealed period wooden shutters.
Outside there is an off-street parking space to the front whilst at the rear the communal garden laid mainly to lawn with mature shrubs, bushes and trees at its perimeters provides perfect entertaining space in the warm summer months.
Overflowing with original character and delivering space and light in abundance, this fantastic apartment would suit first time buyers, investors and professionals alike.

AREA INFORMATION: Southborough
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 Park 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. Park Road is also within the catchment areas for the 5 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.
