A four bedroom halls-adjoining semi-detached family home requiring modernisation and providing the opportunity to extend (STPP) Set in a popular residential road and offered to the market as top of chain.
Offered as top of chain, a four bedroom 'halls adjoining' period property on Dorking Road in the St. James quarter of Tunbridge Wells. The property requires modernisation and refurbishment and provides tremendous potential for further development and extension, subject to the necessary permissions being obtainable.
