A Grade II listed, semi-detached, two bedroomed cottage that exudes charm and character.
Believed to date from the 1700s and to have been the home of one of Tonbridge's families of master cobblers, the property has been sympathetically refurbished and retains a wealth of period features, including exposed beams throughout, yet provides contemporary living.
On the ground floor is a reception room that boasts a large inglenook fireplace with a log burner and the kitchen/breakfast room with a double-height vaulted ceiling and Aga. In addition, there is an understairs area ideal for use as a study or home office. The bathroom features a rolltop bath and completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor has wide-plank wood flooring and is given over to the master bedroom, whilst the second floor houses the further bedroom.

The motorway network can be accessed via the M26 (for M25) within ten miles and M20 within twelve miles, allowing easy travel to London’s international airports, as well as seaports and resorts on the south coast.
