An intriguing opportunity for investment or enhancement of five mews-style residential units in a prestigious semi-rural location a mile from the town centre
Hungershall Park Close is part of a charming cluster of properties, one of several former coach and stables blocks to be found on Cabbage Stalk Lane that originally served the iconic Italianate villas of Hungershall Park.
The desirability of this location for rentals, in its current configuration, or possible future redevelopment, subject to planning permission, cannot be understated. The tranquil setting belies its proximity to the hustle and bustle of Royal Tunbridge Wells, with the mainline station being just 1.2 miles by road or under a mile on foot via Cabbage Stalk Lane and bridleway across the Common.
All five residential units enjoy ground floor access from the characterful brick-paved courtyard and comprise three with one bedroom, one with two bedrooms and a studio/bedsit with potential. Numbers 3 and 4 have been renovated to a modern standard in the last few years for rental, whilst Numbers 1 and 2 require complete renovation. Only number 4 is currently rented.
All the units (except for Number 3a) benefit from a southerly aspect, and of these the two with first floor accommodation enjoy unspoilt views across meadowland.
OUTSIDE: The property is accessed from Hungershall Park by a private drive which serves four properties. Double wooden gates open onto the courtyard around which the property is built, with the double garage facing the gates. A 12 foot-wide strip of land under a separate title, and offered as part of the sale, is divided to form small south-facing garden areas for Numbers 2, 3 & 4.

Such a lovely position and what an opportunity! Best approached on foot via the common from the Pantiles.Robert Jacobs
