1 Bed Flat, Church Lane, TN9
The flat gives onto a fully enclosed and well maintained communal courtyard garden of a Grade II listed Georgian building in the heart of the medieval centre of Tonbridge. The location of the building is both delightful and convenient, with a medieval church and extensive churchyard on one side, and the town's High Street and commercial centre on the other side, within easy walking distance of the mainline train station.
It would particularly suit someone with a small pet who enjoys gardening. The flat has just been fully redecorated and refurbished. The fitted kitchen area has solid oak worktops and the cabinets and drawers are all soft close. The appliances are all the most efficient of their type and include an induction hob, a built in microwave, and self cleaning fan oven. Where appropriate the cupboards and drawers are internally LED illuminated with the work top fully illuminated with under cupboard lighting. The main room looks east over the garden through 12 pane Georgian double glazed sash windows. There is excellent natural light with high ceilings. The studio has full gas central heating and a generous distribution of power points. There is dual (normal and 5G) high speed, 70mbps, internet.
The flat is one of eight created when the building was carefully and completely redeveloped in 2005. Protected period features were preserved and state of the art materials and structure were introduced. The conversion was praised in public documents by local authority planning officers and building regulation staff, who wrote: “The conversion works have all been carried out to a very high standard.” The walls of the courtyard garden, like the building, are Grade II listed. The paving in the garden complements the building's Georgian architecture.
