£400,000 To £425,000 Freehold. Pretty period grade II listed cottage situated in an idyllic semi-rural situation in the Hamlet of Ashurst, with the benefit of a Mainline Train Station just minutes' walk away with direct London City links. The cottage has been updated throughout by the present owners leaving a show home finish with a stunning interior and truly immaculate gardens. Ready to move into, this lovely home is not to be missed.
Set back from the road behind a mature hedge, gate and pretty front garden is this pretty period cottage.
Once inside you are greeted by a good-sized entrance hall with space to kick off shoes and hang coats. The wealth of period features starts with an original stripped door opening into the living room at the front.
The living room is a generous size featuring hard wood floors, log burning stove, a feature wall and fitted shelves on both sides of the chimney breast. A wide window floods this lovely room with lots of natural sunlight.
Before reaching the kitchen, you'll find a handy downstairs cloakroom with WC, wash basin and heated towel rail.
The kitchen has underfloor heating and has recently been re-fitted with a smart mixture of sage-green wooden cabinets contrasting against the solid wood worksurfaces. A butler sink sits beneath the window and allows you to take in views of the delightful cottage gardens as you wash up. There is a fitted fan AEG oven, grill and induction hob, slimline dishwasher along with a tall, fitted fridge/freezer and washing machine.
Beyond the kitchen is another room with underfloor heating, currently used as an office with access to the rear garden. This great space has a pretty feature window and could lend itself to a breakfast room with space for a small table and chairs.
Climbing the thick, newly carpeted stairs you find the two double bedrooms and the smart bathroom.
The master bedroom sits at the front of the first floor and has some lovely solid wood flooring. There is space for a large double bed, a feature fireplace, fitted wardrobes and space for further free-standing bedroom furniture.
Bedroom two is another double bedroom currently set up as a study. There are newly laid carpets, a feature fireplace along with fitted wardrobes and lovely views from its wide window to the garden and beyond. For further storage there is a useful fitted cupboard.
Completing the first floor is the newly fitted bathroom with underfloor heating. A majestic roll top bath steals the show with its smart wood panelled surround. There is also a walk-in shower, WC and wash basin. A window with smart fitted shutters allows for light and ventilation.
Outside you find the well-manicured garden, filled with topiary and cottage garden flowers. Full of life and colour throughout, it really is a special part of this home. There is a useful tool shed on your right and a pebbled pathway leading you to a patio and summer house with space to sit and enjoy the lovely surroundings. This really is a pretty and peaceful haven with the current owners having clearly spent lots of time and love making it a space to be admired.
The present owners have obtained planning permission for a rear storey extension, to further enhance the downstairs living space.
Ashurst is a pretty Hamlet on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells. The Hamlet has a close community spirit with a sports field and hall. There are plenty of lovely countryside walks on your doorstep. Furthermore, there is the mainline train station just minutes' walk away, offering a regular service into London City Centre.
Nearby Langton Green offers a petrol station, convenience store, cafe's and the popular Hare pub/restaurant.
Tunbridge Wells is just over 5 miles away with its array of popular shops, amenities and highly regarded centres of education.
