An absolutely beautiful Grade 2 Star Listed link-attached 6 bedroom house located at the southern end of one of the most prestigious parks in Tunbridge Wells. Set in 0.3 of an acre of private mature gardens, and with off street parking, 24 Calverley Park is a most remarkable house offering substantial and versatile accommodation throughout.
This early 19th Century property is a magnificent example of Decimus Burton architecture and is a beautifully presented house in an enviable setting; Camden Park being the most centrally located private park in Tunbridge Wells. The station and town centre are in close proximity and the property can be accessed via both Prospect Road and Camden Park. The house is approached via an attractive carriageway driveway with ample parking, and the south west facing garden, laid to lawn with mature planting including a stunning magnolia tree, feels entirely private and secluded, despite the property’s prime location.
The entrance hall is wide and welcoming and the accommodation flows well throughout. The first reception room showcases triple aspect floor to ceiling original sash bay windows with shutters, a beautiful open fireplace, exposed floorboards and is flooded with light thanks to its west facing orientation. The second reception room continues to impress with a bank of triple original floor to ceiling windows, again with shutters, views onto the covered stone terrace, a log burning stove and access to the adjacent kitchen. The kitchen is well presented with a selection of navy painted kitchen units, granite and oak worksurfaces and an AGA. The room is generously proportioned and there is ample room for a large American style fridge/freezer and dining table for more casual dining.
The lower ground floor is a very well presented and extremely versatile space with three large rooms, bathroom and laundry room and is ideally suited as sleeping accommodation, additional reception room space or as a combination of both. The original features remain on this level with sash windows overlooking a courtyard garden and separate access.
The first floor is home to three additional good sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath and walk in double shower. The master bedroom includes extensive fitted wardrobes, beautiful triple floor to ceiling sash windows with shutters and overlooks the gardens and beautiful Camden Park.
This house exudes warmth, charm and elegance. Flooded with light, the house is stylishly decorated and presented, and is full of period features, including excellent ceiling heights, high skirting boards, moulded cornicing and architraves, and good storage. The staircase is generously proportioned and the windows throughout are just beautiful. The south-west facing garden lies to the front of the house and sweeps gently down towards Camden Park - the privacy and seclusion makes this a wonderful space for relaxing or entertaining but it is the location of this magnificent house, combined with its extensive and flexible accommodation, that sets it apart.
24 Calverley Park is located just a few minutes walk from the extensive amenities of the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells, including the mainline station. It is within walking distance of many lovely parks, including Dunorlan, Grove Park and Calverley Park, with all the beautiful recreational amenities that they have to offer. Tunbridge Wells town centre, with its well-regarded restaurants, extensive shopping facilities and mainline station with regular services to Central London, is also within easy walking distance. There are excellent schools in the area - the respected Claremont Primary School and St Peters CEP are both only a short walk away - and there are a variety of options in both the independent sector and the much sought-after Kent Grammar system. The impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is 30 miles away and if you want to escape to the south coast, then the lovely seaside towns are only 26 miles distant.
