A beautifully refurbished detached 3 bedroom family house with spacious accommodation both upstairs and down, secluded and landscaped rear garden, garage and off street parking. This is an extremely light and bright house, tucked away in a private location, yet with all that the town has to offer on its doorstep.
207a Forest Road is a much loved family home, sitting centrally in its plot and surrounded by its gardens to the front and rear. Immaculately presented and with ample parking, the house is well located in a popular and attractive residential area on the south side of Tunbridge Wells and has been lovingly extended by the current owners to provide excellent accommodation. The ground floor accommodation includes a well appointed kitchen with space for casual dining and French doors to the rear garden, a separate sitting room, with plenty of space for formal dining and relaxing, and again with French doors to the rear garden. There is a second reception room which the current owners are using as a home study, and a downstairs WC completes the ground floor accommodation.
The final element that we love is the location of this house: situated at the top of a private drive, it is well screened from the road and yet the town and all of its excellent amenities are on the doorstep. In summary, the current owners have really thought about this house and have created a lovely, welcoming home, all set in a fabulous location.
Outside the house sits at the end of a private drive which accesses just one other house, and is well screened thanks to established hedges. There is a large area to the front, providing ample space for parking and also a “secret garden” hidden behind the hedging and with a summerhouse which has a solar panel installed on the roof. The rear garden, which has a south-west orientation, has a black limestone terrace, flanked by a large area of lawn and decked area. Within the deck area is a hot tub, which is very useable thanks to the extremely private aspect of the garden and its sunny aspect. To the side is the long garage with electric roller door and space for one car with an additional generous workshop area.
Built in the 1960’s but completely refurbished by the current owners, this house now represents a very interesting proposition, since it has combined the light filled accommodation and generous plots typical of the 1960s with a home that has been thoughtfully and comprehensively remodelled. The result is a very attractive external aspect and stylish, contemporary and light filled accommodation internally. The newly fitted grey anthracite windows beautifully complement the attractive brickwork and the grey fencing. Internally the house has a wonderful flow of accommodation, all immaculately presented and within a house that can be moved into and enjoyed from the very start. Every room has thoughtful touches, and reassuringly the practicalities have also been addressed, with underfloor heating installed throughout the ground floor, a new boiler fitted during the refurbishment and double glazing incorporated throughout. The rear garden continues the relaxing feel that is integral to this house, and is the perfect sun trap for enjoying such a secluded and private space: the hot tub is an excellent addition!
207a Forest Road 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.
