Next door the kitchen, its cream units bathed in light from the large window at the far end of the room, has everything you need. There are plenty of fitted cupboards and stylish lime green counter surfaces with included appliances such as an electric oven, washing machine and dishwasher.

Across the hall is a separate cloakroom and modern bathroom with its natural light, white fittings, contemporary tiles and a wall attached shower over the bath offering a soothing bathing experience.

Returning to the hall is the pretty second bedroom whose decorative wallpaper, high ceiling and period fireplace delivers a feeling of comfort and warmth.

Completing the flat is an expansive master bedroom with its fitted wardrobe, a handsome fireplace and beautiful view out over the garden from its large window.

Outside there is a secluded private garden at the rear with a large summer house and terraced area that provides perfect entertaining space in the warm summer months.

Tunbridge Wells, steeped in royal history and architectural heritage, also provides a wealth of modern day shopping, entertaining and recreational facilities.

As it is a mere 30 miles south of London and sits amidst glorious Kent countryside it is a highly sought after area for property owners.

The historic Pantiles offers a vibrant al fresco café culture with independent boutiques stretching up to the old High Street. Your every shopping need is satisfied, however, as the more modern day Royal Victoria Place Shopping Centre offers comprehensive shopping facilities from department stores and national chains.

Excellent local primary schools such as Holmewood House and Claremont School sit alongside the highly regarded and sought after girls` and boys` grammar schools. With a number of additional exceptional state secondary schools in its borough and the renowned Tonbridge and Sevenoaks Schools on its doorstep, parents are definitely spoilt for choice.

Recreational amenities such as Dunorlan and Grosvenor Parks, Calverly Grounds, the Assembly Hall Theatre, Nevill Golf Club and St Johns Sports Centre offer an abundance of leisure facilities.

With its two stations, Tunbridge Wells and High Brooms, Tunbridge Wells is a commuters dream as even in off-peak there are up to four trains an hour to London Charing Cross in 50-minute journey times or less.

Finally, the M25 with its links to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports is accessible via the A21 which lies just north of Tunbridge Wells.
