1 Bed Flat, Church Lane, TN9
The main room, an open plan living room and fitted kitchen area, looks west through two 9-pane Georgian sash windows over the High Street. There is good natural light. These windows are acoustically double glazed with counterbalanced, easy to clean toughed and laminated matching sashes. A 70mbs dual band Wi-Fi connection is provided.
Entrance is via the courtyard garden. A listed central staircase leads up to the first floor and a galleried landing. The stairs are naturally lit by a domed roof light above the central staircase. The entrance door gives onto a hall that leads to the bathroom, bed room and main living room.
The main room has a listed sealed fireplace with a decorative relief. The flat has full gas central heating, very good sound and heat insulation - including doubled ceiling boards isolated from the joists with rubber bushes, with the void between the joists filled with “Soundslab” - and generous power points. The bath room has a white suite including shower cubicle and low level wc.
The flat is one of eight flats 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.
The building stands within 1/2 mile of Tonbridge mainline station, which offers what may be the best rail service of any town close to the M25. There are direct commuter trains to London Bridge, Cannon Street, Waterloo, Charing Cross, and Victoria, and they are frequent. The fastest trains take around 35 minutes to London Bridge. The lines also run south, east and west to Gatwick and Dorking, Canterbury, Dover, Hastings etc. There are nearby road links, via the A26 and A21, to the M20 & M25 motorways; the main roads to and from Tonbridge are excellent. Junction 5 of the M25 is approximately eight miles north.
Nearby allocated residents' parking spaces are available and on street parking costs £35 per annum on application to local authority offices in the nearby 13th century Norman castle. There is a large Waitrose supermarket, and a large Sainsburys supermarket, a few minutes walk away, between the studio and the train station.
The building lies within the Tonbridge Conservation Area. The castle and its grounds, a sports centre, a quality public swimming pool and the River Medway are all within a few minutes walk.
Tonbridge, an historic market town, lies in the Medway valley between the Kent Weald and the Green Sand Ridge/North Downs. It offers a range of retail and leisure activities with many high street stores and a full complement of banks and building societies, together with a selection of coffee shops, restaurants and local inns. The geography and history of the area are interesting and extended. There is an extraordinary variety of local villages and places of interest within easy cycling distance, including Hever, Chartwell, Penshurst, Cowden, Sevenoaks, Bewl Water, Ashdown Forest and Hartfield.
