    About this property

    • Dating back to the 1860s, Broadwater Down is a historic, sought-after, tree-lined residential road. With many period properties and modern newly-built homes, it lies within a Conservation area on the ever-popular south side of Tunbridge Wells. 21 Broadwater Down is an imposing detached period property that was divided into six apartments in the late-20th century.

      Approached via a communal entrance, flat four is found on the first floor and enjoys a welcoming entrance hall with a Velux window providing an abundance of light whilst giving access to all of the accommodation. Typical of a property this age, there are many period features throughout including high ceilings with decorative coving, ceiling roses, built-in storage cupboards and attractive sealed unit sash-style windows; which were installed approximately six years ago.

      The spacious sitting room enjoys a handsome, feature fireplace with a detailed surround, together with bespoke bookshelves. Fitted with traditional style cabinetry, the galley kitchen is fitted with both base and wall units offering a good level of storage, together with a further 'small' shelved pantry area. The kitchen is fitted with an oven, and offers space for a dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There is an additional utility/coat cupboard with plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

      There are two double bedrooms; the principal bedroom which benefits from an attractive feature fireplace and built-in shelving, and bedroom two which enjoys an outlook of mature trees and greenery. The family bathroom is fitted with a WC, bath and shower above, a sink basin with useful cabinetry below and further fitted cabinetry.

      Outside, there is a private, fenced garden with a storage shed and two terraces to enjoy. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a range of mature trees and shrubs, and a gateway leading to the private parking area; which provides parking for up to three cars. Apartment four also benefits from a private cellar room, accessed via external steps leading down from the driveway to the side of the building.
