This elegant Victorian end of terrace property is full of character and is located within the popular St John's area of Tunbridge Wells. The spacious 4 bedroom family home is beautifully-presented throughout and offers well-proportioned living accommodation, perfect for the family buyer. Features include the open plan kitchen and diner, a valuable second reception room, off-road parking and a generous south facing terrace plus rear garden. There are excellent primary and secondary schools nearby, including those in the sought-after Kent Grammar system, and all the amenities vibrant Tunbridge Wells has to offer are within easy reach. With a delightful south-facing rear garden and secluded terrace, off-road parking and a large cellar storage area, this house gives its new owners fabulous accommodation, all beautifully presented and in a highly desirable location.
This main entrance hall of this halls adjoining property accesses all of the downstairs accommodation and the stairs to the upper levels. On the ground floor there is a light, bright and restful sitting room to the front, with original Victorian marble fireplace and woodburning stove. At the back of the property is the kitchen which is open plan to the dining area, a large and generous space that can easily accommodate a large table. French doors lead out to the rear garden, whilst the kitchen sits connected yet separate to this area, with a dual aspect and views onto the rear garden. It is well equipped with extensive wooden units and work space and a small breakfast bar. A WC completes the downstairs’ accommodation.
On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are good doubles, and 2 bathrooms. The bedrooms all feature excellent storage, and one of the bathrooms is fitted with a large shower cubicle, whilst the other has a bath. Further stairs lead up to the fourth bedroom, another good double, light and bright thanks to the velux window to the front and sash window to the rear, and again with excellent storage within the eaves.
This house exudes warmth and charm. The current owner has lived at the house for over 20 years, and it is evident that it has been extremely well loved and maintained during this time. We love the original period features that can be found in almost every room, from the beautiful painted floorboards, to the attractive fireplaces, to the lovely sash windows, the bedroom ones of which afford lovely views across the town and onto the neighbouring Kent countryside. Every room is perfectly proportioned for its purpose, for example, there is ample space to cook and entertain in the kitchen area, and then relax and unwind in the elegant sitting room. The rear garden is a real town centre idyll, with mature planting creating an attractive backdrop to what is a sunny and secluded space. The water feature adjacent to the terrace is very relaxing. However, this is a house that not only appeals to the heart but also to the head, thanks to the coveted (and highly unusual for the area!) off-road parking, the large cellar area providing excellent storage, the generous, south facing garden, and the well-appointed, perfectly proportioned accommodation. And all set in the most desirable of locations: close to the grammar schools, the excellent primary schools and the extensive town centre amenities.
To the front, the property is flanked by mature hedges, with off-road parking in the centre. The rear garden is beautifully landscaped, completely enclosed and very secluded with a large stone terrace, perfect for al fresco dining and barbeques. There is also an area of lawn, and mature trees and shrubs. Access to the large cellar storage area is a few steps down from the rear garden. Further on street parking is available in the road outside the house.
