SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES Rose Cottage is a delightful period family home nestled behind striking sandstone rocks in the tranquil semi-rural village setting of Denny Bottom.

As it is only a stone's throw away from the centre of Tunbridge Wells with its excellent commuter links, bustling shops and café culture it really delivers the best of both worlds.

Spectacular views over the natural crop of rocks and wooded cliffs greet you on arrival with the home's leafy front garden delivering a sense of intrigue as steps wind down through foliage to the lower ground level.

Its smart period red brick exterior is mingled with wall climbing plants and a charming blue door which entices you across its threshold.

Light streams through the living room's dual aspect windows which give wonderful views of the cottages at the rear of the valley and the impressive rocks to the front. Its warm wooden flooring and wood burning stove, perfect for chilly winter evenings, make it a very cosy space for a large room that has plenty of space for deep sofas to relax in.

A second reception room at the rear with glorious garden views could be used either as a useful home office or a third bedroom.

Wooden stairs lead you down past a crisply painted exposed brick wall to the expansive kitchen/dining area. This incredible room with its stunning flagstone floor stretches the length of the house and is flooded with light from its double aspect windows and glazed doors at the far end bringing views of the garden in. For family and entertaining there is tons of space and the fitted kitchen delivers wonderful cooking facilities with a range of bespoke eye and base level wooden units, a traditional butler sink and a useful double pantry cupboard.

A downstairs cloakroom and an open arched utility space with plenty of room for appliances and space for coats and muddy boots completes the lower ground floor.

Returning to the living room a natural wooden staircase leads you upwards to the first floor with its two restful double bedroms and a large family bathroom with shower over the bath.

The beautiful garden is an impressive size and particularly well landscaped with graduating tiers of lawn, mature shrubs and trees stretching down to the end of the garden. It offers spectacular views of the neighbouring valley cottages and woodland tree tops and provides perfect summer entertaining space.
