A beautiful example of an early Victorian lodge house situated close to the beautiful Tunbridge Wells’ common, with extensive and versatile accommodation, secluded rear garden backing onto Nevill Park, off road parking and a very large garage.
This generous property offers highly versatile and flexible accommodation arranged over 2 floors in an attractive L-shaped configuration, which sits well in its plot and flanks the private courtyard garden, which in turn has steps leading up to the large lawned garden. The entrance hall sets the tone for the spacious accommodation that is found in this property, and is a useful area for coats and shoes. This in turn leads to the inner entrance hall, laid with flagstone tiles and serving as a central hub to access the main accommodation. To the left is the dining room with a window overlooking the courtyard area of the garden, and with broken plan access to the kitchen, a lovely room fitted with a good range of wooden wall and base units, topped with solid pine block worktops. At this side of the property is also the utility room, with dual access perfectly placed to reach both the rear garden and the garage. There is space for a washing machine, dryer, further storage space and access to the WC.
To the right of the inner entrance hall is the study, with views to the front, and also the sitting room, a beautiful room with original oak herringbone parquet floor and a working open fire. Access is then also granted to the orangery, which the current owner uses for formal dining, but which could also be a garden room, thanks to its outlook over the inner courtyard and garden beyond.
Upstairs there are 6 bedrooms. One of these is the master suite, which features generous clothes storage and its own dedicated en suite bathroom. The other bedrooms are a range of good doubles and smaller doubles, and the two additional bathrooms are conveniently placed, with one having a large walk in shower, and the other fitted with a bath with shower over. There is also access to the loft from the landing.
The private driveway sits to the side of the property and provides ample off-road parking and access to the large garage, a very generous space with a large double garage area to the front and two further rooms to the rear, perfect for anyone wanting good storage facilities. The garden consists of two joined sections: the inner courtyard is laid to terrace and flanked with mature shrubs and has a few steps up to the main garden area. This south facing garden is very secluded and is laid predominately to lawn, flanked by mature borders and trees, and with a greenhouse and 2 garden sheds, perfect for storage of garden implements.
The unique and characterful nature of this property, combined with the internal space, secluded plot and excellent location, make it a real winner for us. The houses itself comes to the market for the first time in almost 40 years, showing how much of a loved family home it is. The current owners have looked after the property well, and admit that it will be a difficult house to leave, but that it is time for a new family to take residence. The new owners could reconfigure some of the rooms to create more open plan living (subject to necessary consents) or simply move in and enjoy. There is plenty of internal accommodation, meaning that everyone has their own space, and the large south facing garden is private and secluded. Storage at this property is also excellent, both internally and from the large garage. Its convenient location means that there is easy access to the beautiful Wellington Rocks on the common, and central Tunbridge Wells with its extensive amenities. There are also acres of lovely woodland and open spaces on its doorstep which provide lovely country walks.
27 Langton Road is located just to the west of the town centre of Tunbridge Wells, a highly desirable area of the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells. It is well placed for the town centre, schools and the mainline station and lovely country walks. Tunbridge Wells itself boasts excellent commercial and leisure facilities with well-regarded restaurants and excellent shopping opportunities, and the impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is 30 miles distant. There are excellent schooling options in the area, within both the state and independent sectors, including those in the sought-after Kent Grammar system. The mainline station offers a fast and frequent service into Central London and, if you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns are just 30 miles to the south.
