A completely remodelled and extended family home, refurbished to a very high standard and now offering spacious and flexible accommodation, immaculately presented. This is an extremely light and bright house, thanks to its elevated position, which also provides a lovely secluded position.
152 Forest Road is a much loved family home, sitting centrally in its plot and surrounded by its own gardens to the front and rear. Immaculately presented and with ample parking, the house is well located in a popular and attractive residential area of Tunbridge Wells and has been lovingly extended by the current owners to provide excellent accommodation.
The front door opens to the generous and welcoming hallway, which creates a successful divide between the ground and first floor accommodation, with the stairs sitting to the left and access to the downstairs accommodation to the right. Situated on the ground floor is the well-appointed kitchen, fitted with a range of white gloss units with corian worktops and quality integrated appliances. A very useful utility room adjoins the kitchen. The reception room, leading off from the kitchen and which the current owners are using as a dining room, is flooded with natural light, thanks to the thoughtful windows that span the room, and the second reception room which adjoins this is perfect as a sitting room.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are spacious, light and all have excellent storage. The master bedroom is a very restful space, situated to the rear of the property and with its own dressing area and dedicated ensuite bathroom. The sloping ceilings in parts of the bedrooms create real interest and character, whilst the large velux windows again continue the feeling of light that is a real feature of this property. All in all, the convenience of the location, the seclusion of the actual plot, and the quality and space that the house provides are all factors which make this a truly welcoming and unique family home
The elevated position of 152 Forest Road means that it is both connected to the town, yet also feels private and secluded, with a wonderful woodland outlook from the multitude of trees that sit at the top of Warwick Park. Accordingly there are numerous areas in the garden where you can relax and enjoy its peaceful aspect, whilst enjoying all of the town’s amenities that are within walking distance. The house itself does not fail to disappoint: built in the 1960’s but renovated and extended to a very high specification by the current owners, the house is externally attractive and the flow of accommodation is superb for family living. The space and configuration of rooms on the ground floor is very flexible, meaning that the house can grow with a changing family’s needs, allowing space for children to feel connected when young, or have more space for themselves as they get older. We love also how much the owners thought about the natural light that the house should provide: throughout there are large and generous windows and many rooms have a dual aspect.
152 Forest Road sits at the very top of Warwick Park and is accessed via a private drive off from Forest Road. The house is within walking distance of The Pantiles, the elegant Georgian colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll. A regular farmers' and craft market is held fortnightly on the colonnade and features an excellent range of stalls selling high quality local produce, hot foods, crafts, homewares and accessories. The mainline station, with its fast and frequent trains to Central London is also under a mile away and there are excellent schooling options locally, within both the state and independent sectors, including those in the sought-after Kent Grammar system. Tunbridge Wells has a diverse range of restaurants, shops and sporting facilities and the impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is only 45 minutes' drive. If you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns can be reached by train or car in under an hour.
