It's a stunning mix of old and new and perfectly positioned betwixt Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge. But aha my little snoops: can you guess the price?
Calling all property pundits! Property Flirt is back, and boy have we got a corker for you. For anyone who doesn’t know our nosey little game, we show you the gaff, tell you the best bits about it, and then you guess the price and the closest to the asking price wins £10,000. OK, so you only win glory – but that’s priceless right?!
Right, your starter for ten…
A brilliantly located Victorian family house that’s been stylishly updated inside – and comes complete with planning permission to extend. Every home-improvement fan’s dream!
What we have here is four bedrooms, shower room, family bathroom, ample off street parking, garage and attractive wide garden. It might not be as big and sprawling as some of the rural properties we’ve featured in this section before, but it’s situated in Southborough on London Road, so smack bang between Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge people! Think location, location, location, mes amis!
An attractive semi-detached three-storey Victorian family house, 9 London Road is believed to date from the mid 1800’s. It’s stuffed with original period features, like the sash windows, high ceilings with coving, and big, cosy fireplaces.
But best of all, the present owners have comprehensively refurbished the house over the last couple of years including the creation of a shower room on the first floor, re-fitting the bathroom and kitchen, replacing some windows, re-wiring, installation of a new boiler and hot water system, landscaping the garden, as well as obtaining planning permission for an extension to the rear of about 860 sq ft (80sqm) to create a wonderful Kitchen/Family Room (or party den – your call!)
Shall we go upstairs? After you… Here you’ll find four stunning bedrooms split over two floors. The bedrooms boast sweeping, distant views and outside you’ve got a great garden space – both of which are real plus-points for a town-based location.
You’d be very conveniently positioned here, within walking distance of Southborough Common/Cricket Ground and shops. You’re virtually equidistant between Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells town centres and their wide range of shopping and leisure facilities.
Need to get to The Smoke? Trains from Tonbridge take only around 45 mins to London Charing Cross/Cannon Street. Oh and the schools – from Primary to Prep and Independent Secondaries to Grammars – you are spoilt for choice here.
Right come on. Sit down here on this G&T pits-stop with me and do please indulge me property pundits. How much d’you reckon? Have a think, write your answer below, then click here to find if you’re right.
