Guide Price £600,000 to £625,000 Freehold:

Incredibly unique, rural location situated off a private farm track yet within a very short distance of Tunbridge Wells centre and close to the villages of Groombridge, Langton Green and Rusthall.

Surrounded by rolling fields and paddocks, this wonderful three-bedroom family home benefits from planning permission for both a side and rear extension. For those looking for the good life with ample amounts of future potential, look no further!

Yew Tree Cottages is a small collection of cottages situated towards the end of a farm track away from the road.

The house sits back behind a well-stocked front garden full of mature plants, offering an abundance of colour in the Spring and Summer months.

The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with hard wood flooring, window on the left and useful fitted storage beneath the stairs. On your right is the living room offering plenty of space for chunky furniture. There is a wide window flooding the room with light whilst an open fireplace adds both character and warmth. There is useful fitted shelving to each side of the chimney breast.

Heading along the hall you reach the family/dining room at the rear of the ground floor. There is plenty of room for family living with the present owners configuring a space for sofas and a space for a dining table and chairs. There is a working open fireplace and double doors that open onto the patio and garden beyond. The family/dining room has lovely solid wood floors, a useful fitted coat cupboard and gorgeous countryside views to include the Spa Valley Steam Railway track in the far distance.

A door from the family/dining room opens into the kitchen with its triple aspect feature flooding the room with natural light and attractive views. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of cabinets and wood effect worksurfaces. There is a gas cooker with extractor hood above (included) whilst there is space for an American sized fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. A butler sink and drainer sit below the rear window and offers delightful garden views. There is a glazed door from the kitchen taking you to the side of the garden and a handy downstairs cloakroom with window, which also houses the boiler.

On the first floor you will find the three bedrooms and family bathroom, all accessed from the good-sized landing. All three bedrooms have the added bonus of fitted storage. Both bedrooms one and two are good sized double rooms whilst bedroom three is a single bedroom or study.

Completing the first floor is the family bathroom which is part tiled and includes a bath with Aqualisa power shower over, WC, wash basin and chrome heated towel rail.

Outside the property enjoys beautiful, private gardens wrapping from the front and side of the house around to the rear. The sense of privacy and remoteness is unmissable when outside. The garden has been well maintained over the years and includes a wealth of colour and mature plants. At the front of the property is the driveway with EV charging point and further parking in front of the cottage.

The property has the added benefit of planning permission for a double storey side extension, wrapping to the rear to increase the downstairs family space, and create a master bedroom en-suite with dressing room and balcony but could otherwise be configured to create a fourth bedroom on the first floor. The planning permission also grants an outside home office with parking in front and to also widen the window in the living room. Please see Wealden planning website for further details (WD/2021/2669/F)

All in all, the property and its surroundings really do offer the 'good life'. The cottage is surrounded by country walks to local villages and pubs whilst Broadwater Forest is also within walking distance too. The famous Pantiles is approx. 45 mins walk away through picturesque woodland. It is hard to find such a rural location on the fringes of a bustling town offering all that this property has. The Spa Valley Railway track can be spotted in the far distance with its infrequent steam trains offering a scenic sight. In addition, despite its rural location Yew Tree Cottages has full fibre broadband for those work may work from home. Tunbridge Wells itself is a very short drive away and offers several highly regarded primary, secondary and grammar schools whilst the town offers a wealth of shopping and eating facilities along with the historic Pantiles, general amenities and open green spaces. Tunbridge Wells mainline train station is also a short drive away and offers fast and frequent links to the city.

Viewing is highly recommended.
