A beautiful, charming and historic 4-bedroom detached Edwardian family house set in a popular and friendly road in the heart of Rusthall. Excellent accommodation throughout with three reception rooms plus a large open plan kitchen and garden home office, set in the lovely south facing rear garden. Minutes away from the amenities of Rusthall and Rusthall Common as well as easy access to town centre, local schools and mainline train station.
This delightful four-bedroom Edwardian property is set in a very friendly road in the heart of the well supported village of Rusthall. Its historical roots are charming, being named after Miss Pengelly, who built the house before it was used by Tonbridge Guardians to deliver life skills and work training to young orphaned girls. Amazingly, it has had just two owners since the 1940s, a testament to how desirable a property it is. The current owners created a generous extension to the rear in 2017, and this has resulted in a successful combination of period charm in the original parts of the house, with a contemporary open plan dining space in the addition. The charming south-facing rear garden has been landscaped and is now a safe and secluded space which incorporates a convenient home office / studio space.
There is also a fast and frequent train service to London. There are many independent and state schooling options in the area, including those in the much sought-after Kent Grammar system. The impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is only 45 minutes' drive away and if you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns can also be reached in under an hour.
What we love so much about this house is that it has so much to offer. Rarely do you find a property with Phil Spencer’s famous ‘The ideal 5 Cs’ - countryside, community, convenience, cost and commute. Pengelly House offers them all.
Rusthall is an excellent example of a village that is very well supported by its residents and accordingly, thrives. It has excellent amenities for day to day supplies, including two general stores, a Medical Centre, pharmacist, post office, dentist and veterinary surgery, all within easy walking distance of the property. The vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells is just over a mile away with its extensive range of restaurants, shops, supermarkets and leisure facilities.
