Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A Grade II listed, semi-detached, two bedroomed cottage that exudes charm and character.

Believed to date from the 1700s and to have been the home of one of Tonbridge's families of master cobblers, the property has been sympathetically refurbished and retains a wealth of period features, including exposed beams throughout, yet provides contemporary living.

On the ground floor is a reception room that boasts a large inglenook fireplace with a log burner and the kitchen/breakfast room with a double-height vaulted ceiling and Aga. In addition, there is an understairs area ideal for use as a study or home office. The bathroom features a rolltop bath and completes the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor has wide-plank wood flooring and is given over to the master bedroom, whilst the second floor houses the further bedroom.


Tonbridge is a market town situated less than thirty miles south-east of London. Its High Street offers a variety of eateries, public houses and boutique shops, a shopping centre, department store and supermarket, and access to pleasant walks along the banks of the Medway. Sports and entertainment facilities can be found at the Angel Centre, the River Centre and the Oast Theatre. The nearby towns of Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells provide further shopping, dining and leisure amenities.

The property stands less than a mile from Tonbridge mainline station that offers services into London Cannon Street from 42 minutes and London Charing Cross from 44 minutes. The motorway network can be accessed via the M26 (for M25) within ten miles and M20 within twelve miles, allowing easy travel to London's international airports, as well as seaports and resorts on the south coast.

The area is renowned for the quality of its pre-school, primary and secondary education in both the private and state sector, including the highly sought-after Tonbridge School and Sevenoaks School and some of the country's most highly regarded Grammar schools.


The pretty garden, adorned with flowering shrubs, has a patio and seating area and steps leading up to a lawned area with space for a shed and/or greenhouse. The gate at the rear of the garden leads to the allocated off-street parking, convenient and rare in a location this close to a town centre.
