About this property

  • A striking penthouse apartment in this modern purpose-built block of just six units, built in 2007.

    14 Bredbury House enjoys a wonderful private aspect being the only apartment on this level and features a balcony which runs around the periphery providing outdoor space and views to three sides. The property is nicely presented with a neutral colour tone and benefits from large windows for appreciation of the views and for maximising the natural light.

    The property is located in a very convenient position being just yards away from the open spaces of the Tunbridge Wells Common which lies on the other side of Mount Ephraim, enabling a walk of approximately 0.4 miles to the town centre and 0.6 miles to the mainline station.

    The generously proportioned open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room spans the eastern side of the apartment, with doors out to the widest part of the balcony providing a lovely outlook over the Common and space for outdoor furniture. The contemporary-style kitchen is well-fitted with appliances including a fridge/freezer, microwave oven, electric oven, washing machine and a gas hob.

    There are two good-sized bedrooms (one en suite), both with doors out to the balcony, and a family bathroom.

    14 Bredbury is accessed via a lift directly up to the top floor, with an alternative staircase, and would be ideal for downsizers needing a very convenient Tunbridge Wells base, or as a 'lock up and leave' or investment opportunity.

    The allocated parking space in the forecourt can accommodate two cars, and there is further visitors' parking.
