About this property

  • Converted around the turn of the century, this top floor apartment in The Depository brings a taste of New York ‘loft' living to Tunbridge Wells.

    A unique property with a wealth of exposed structural features, wood floors, high vaulted ceilings and a wonderful art-deco influenced balcony, this is a secure, versatile and self-contained living space that will hold strong appeal for many.

    Two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one ensuite), a spacious kitchen and a stunning vaulted living room is not all that is on offer. A mezzanine floor built into the roof space adds a further 678 sq ft of accommodation that can be configured as the owner wishes.

    No. 6 is on the top floor of the smaller of a pair of buildings that are now combined and share a bright and modern street-level entrance, smart communal landings and access areas and the refurbished and impressive original industrial lift.

    Added to this is an asset of unquestionable value - two allocated car parking spaces (utlilising a car stacker system) in a secure ground floor indoor communal garage.

Stylish, quirky and with a real 'wow' factor, I love this apartment, it is so individual and reflects the building's former days. Even using the lift is enjoyable! I think someone could have a lot of fun with this space and it is such a brilliant location for the town.
