About this property

  • Converted into 40 apartments to an award-winning standard by Rydon Homes in 2004, Molyneux Place is one of Tunbridge Wells' most recognisable buildings, situated in a prime elevated position above the town centre, neighbouring the Common, with attractive gated communal grounds, offering both security and privacy.

    3, Molyneux Place is presented to a very high standard throughout. This elegant apartment enjoys generous living space with a good-sized reception room that can be easily zoned to provide both a dining and sitting area; this room also opens onto a sizeable, private paved terrace, ideal for outdoor entertaining.

    The separate, well-appointed and fitted kitchen enjoys a range of integrated appliances and provides good storage and preparation space, with a breakfast bar for more informal dining.

    The principal bedroom enjoys a dressing area with a bank of fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room; a second double bedroom also provides fitted wardrobes and has an en suite bathroom. A further wc completes the accommodation.

    The apartment can be accessed via the elegant communal entrance hall or further access point to side and rear of the building. The apartment notably benefits from two allocated parking spaces, one in the underground car park and one above ground with further visitor parking available.

3 Molyneux Place is a highly attractive proposition for those seeking a secure home that offers longevity, but it would also appeal to those seeking an easy maintenance, 'lock up and leave' Tunbridge Wells base or an investment property. I think the terrace is a super asset, it is easy to maintain with a high degree of privacy, so the outdoor space becomes an extension of the reception space.
