An imposing period semi-detached family house, with much potential, in a leafy setting overlooking the woodland of Southborough Common, well-placed for local schools and transport links.
No 37 Holden Road is a spacious and imposing period house thought to have been built in the early 1900s. It is situated on a road that borders woodland on Southborough Common, yet is within easy access of London Road and the transport links offered to Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge. Occupying three floors, the property offers generously proportioned rooms with abundant storage and has great potential to further modernise the property to enhance the current accommodation subject to any necessary planning constraints.
The property features period fireplaces, wood panelled internal doors with brass fittings, stained glass windows, picture rails, high ceilings and deep skirting boards.
The charming enclosed porch opens onto an entrance hall which has two storage cupboards and a cloakroom.
The dual-aspect drawing room features an expansive window with stained glass panels and an outlook over the front garden. One wall is fitted with built-in shelves and cupboards and an impressive cast iron fireplace with colourful tiled slips and hearth is located on one side of the room.
The sitting room, with two sash windows, overlooks the garden to the side and has a wall of built-in shelves and cupboards and a period fireplace.
The dining room has built-in cupboards to one side of the chimney breast and an open doorway through to the wood-framed double-glazed conservatory.
The kitchen is located off the dining room with wooden wall and base units, an integrated dishwasher, space for a range cooker, a fridge and a freezer and two spaces for washing appliances.
The window gives an outlook over the rear garden and has a back door leading out to the rear terrace.
The stairs lead up from the entrance hall to the first floor landing. Straight ahead is a double bedroom currently used as an art studio and the family shower room.
There are three further double bedrooms on the first floor (one currently used as a study) and there are stairs up to the second floor master bedroom with has fitted wardrobes, a well-appointed bathroom and a large loft storage area in the eaves.
A particular feature of this property is the good sized and beautifully maintained garden of about 0.23 acres. It has been planned and landscaped by the current owners and is planted with many established plants and shrubs with an elevated terraced area that features a pond with water feature and a wooden pergola to one side.
Spanning the rear of the property is a flagstone terrace which gets the sun for a good portion of the day making it a lovely area to sit and entertain. The front of the property is reached via a pretty wooden gate which opens onto a winding gravel path, bordered on both sides by an area of level lawn and leading up to the front door.
