This elegant and beautifully presented 4 bedroom Victorian property is situated on the highly desirable Grosvenor Park, within the heart of Tunbridge Wells and just a few minutes’ walk from all that the town has to offer. The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and includes 2 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a very successful kitchen / diner and downstairs WC. The property was completely refurbished just 4 years ago resulting in modern and contemporary living in a character property with many period features retained, including an original stained glass front door, picture rails, ceiling roses and decorative fireplaces in the reception rooms (with an open working fire to the sitting room and wood burner in the family room). The windows are double glazed sash units, perfectly in keeping with the property’s period feel. And during its refurbishment, it also had a new central heating system installed and was completely rewired. The loft conversion is a great space, incorporating a generous bedroom with an exposed brick wall and extensive eves storage, and an ensuite bathroom, with a feature window providing far-reaching views over the town centre which sits on its doorstep.
Tunbridge Wells is popular for its Victorian architecture, and this house is an excellent example of a property that has been really well modernised and refurbished, whilst retaining many of the period features typical of the era. It is clear that there was a real attention to detail during the refurbishment, with underfloor heating installed to the kitchen, quartz worktops and bi-fold doors to the rear garden and a range of solid units giving the kitchen extensive storage space. The sitting room provides a really tranquil space, with shutters keeping it cool in the summer months and an open fire cosy on winter evenings. The fitted shelving and cupboards in the alcoves to either side of the fireplace provide are both decorative and useful. On the higher levels, three of the bedrooms are strong doubles, with fabulous wardrobe space in the largest first floor bedroom. The top floor bedroom again demonstrates the strong attention to detail, with a window from the hall filling the space with light, an exposed brick wall providing a focal point, and ample eves storage. Both bathrooms have a contemporary feel whilst being designed to meet modern family needs: there is a freestanding bath in the family bathroom, and a generous shower in the top ensuite. Even the rear garden has been well thought-through, with fitted bench seating, no-mow grass and power to the shed, meaning that the current owners use the space for a tumble dryer.
To the front of the house there is a small garden and a path that leads to the front door. The rear garden is south-facing and very secluded, incorporating both a patio area and a space fitted with no-mow grass. There is integrated bench seating and a shed tucked away in the corner, which has power. The current owners fitted a Weinor electric awning to the rear of the house, to provide shelter from the sun when needed, which is not included in the sale but is available to purchase.
Grosvenor Park is a most desirable residential road within the heart of the Tunbridge Wells, popular for its uniform Victorian architecture of attractive red brick semi-detached bay fronted properties. The town centre, with its well-regarded restaurants, extensive shopping facilities and mainline station with regular services to Central London, sits right on the doorstep of this property, and there are excellent primary and secondary schools in the area, including those in the 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.
