About this property

  • 7 Strawberry Close is nestled in this highly desirable area on the south side of town, within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet is just approximately 1.5 miles from Tunbridge Wells town centre.

    The property enjoys an elevated tucked away position with a far-reaching view to the north from the two front bedrooms and an attractive outlook to the adjoining Hargate Forest from the principal bedroom balcony on the south side.

    This delightful light-filled home is well presented with generously proportioned living space comprising a dual-aspect reception room with sliding doors opening out to the garden and a separate study, which could be used as a useful ground floor bedroom four, if required.

    Of particular note is the delightful garden to the rear which has mature hedging and shrub borders to the boundaries, providing a good level of privacy and shelter, and a pedestrian gate at the end allowing direct access to the forest.

    The driveway provides parking space for several cars in front of the garage. The property is considered to offer potential for re-configuring the space to suit individual requirements, subject to any necessary planning consents.

The position of this property is fantastic and this family home offers versatile living space. I particularly like the direct access into Hargate Forest.
