About this property

  • 4 Princes Street is a handsome semi-detached Victorian townhouse, which has been extended and updated over time, with further, more recent improvements made under our clients' ownership. The accommodation, which is arranged over three floors, enjoys plenty of natural light and is presented to a very high standard throughout.

    The ground floor offers a flexible and sociable layout; a more formal sitting room is found to the front of the house, with large bay window and attractive feature fireplace. The family room also has a feature fireplace with wood burner and is open to the stylish fitted kitchen/dining area. The base and wall units provide good storage and plenty of preparation space, with a range of integrated appliances. French doors provide the view over and direct access onto the garden beyond.

    Four bedrooms are set across the first and second floor and can be arranged to suit individual preferences. One of the double bedrooms on the first floor has an ensuite bathroom and a very convenient laundry station with space for a washing machine and tumble drier. The three further bedrooms are served by the well-appointed family shower room.

    Outside - A red brick pathway leads to the front door with a low walled garden to the front of the house. The pretty, part-walled garden enjoys a sunny orientation and measures just under 50ft from the back of the property and is mainly laid to lawn, with a selection of mature plants, shrubs and trees and a timber shed. A red brick terrace adjoins the house and provides a lovely spot in which to entertain with plenty of space for child's play.

    Parking - Princes Street is Zone D. Residents are entitled to two permits per household and visitors' vouchers via Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.

I was really taken with how the sympathetic changes that have been made to this house over the years have really enhanced the space to create a beautiful period house that caters to modern day family living, the kitchen/diner/family room is great. The location here is super too, you are only a stroll to a selection of delightful parks and open spaces and the busy, bustling High Street, but whenever you want a change of scene you can head to the train station and away to the city or the coast. Ideal!
