1 Bed Flat, Church Lane, TN9
The main room, an open plan living room and fitted kitchen area, looks north over the garden and east over a small south facing private and exclusive courtyard through Georgian sash windows. There is good natural light.
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 flat has full gas central heating and a generous distribution of power points. High speed WiFi is provided soon to be ultra high speed fibre.
It has recently been fitted with a top of the market combi boiler, a new kitchen which includes an induction hob an easy care fan oven, an externally ventilated cooker hood, new soft close units under a solid oak and therefore robust work top. This with an Amtico "Signature" floor throughout. The bathroom was also refurbished. Two years ago a new foil backed foam insulated roof under hand made Kent peg clay tiles was fitted. The property is warm, quiet and as inexpensive to run as it is possible to make it.

Junction 5 of the M25 is approximately eight miles north.
