A beautiful family home in the heart of the village area of Tunbridge Wells, just a short walk from The Pantiles and the High Street. Substantial living and bedroom space throughout and filled with period features, and a beautiful landscaped garden plus share of woodland. No onward chain.
This wonderful double-fronted detached, Edwardian house is set in a highly sought after location in “the village” area of Tunbridge Wells and offers extremely spacious and flexible accommodation over three floors, with 4 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms, a home office and utility room. The rear garden is a real feature, being landscaped into various “zones” and having direct access to the woodland beyond, which the house owns a share of, and all just a short walk away from the High Street, Pantiles and mainline station.
A large and bright hallway sets the tone for this beautiful period house, flooded with light from the leaded windows in and around the front door, and leading to the three reception rooms and kitchen. The first of the reception rooms is to the right, currently being used as a dining room, and a good size room with square bay window overlooking the front. The second reception room is adjacent, a fabulous traditional sitting room with a large bay window to the front, fireplace with gas fire, and the original French doors at the rear connecting to the orangery beyond. The current owners use this room as a garden room, as the multiple and attractive windows create a lovely aspect to enjoy views of the rear garden. Adjacent is the final reception room, currently used as a more casual dining space, and again with period features of the fireplace and exposed floorboards, and then the kitchen, fitted with a range of base and wall units, and with a door to access the side of the house. A utility room and downstairs WC complete the accommodation.
The rear garden has a large patio terrace directly outside the house and then lawn and natural stone steps to the elevated section, which is also laid to terrace and the perfect space to enjoy the afternoon sun. Plentiful established shrubs and planting provide real interest. Beyond is a further lawned area, with more of a natural woodland feel, and this in turn leads to the woodland beyond, which this house and a number of others that surround it, own a share.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms, a study and the family bathroom. The master is to the left and is an excellent size, with fitted storage and a very attractive original fireplace. All of the bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes and large windows that ensure an abundance of natural light. The family bathroom serves all the rooms on this floor and is a good size.
The top floor of this property houses two charming attic bedrooms with an additional bathroom. Both rooms are flooded with light thanks to the velux windows, and they also both have useful storage within the eaves.
Madeira Park is situated in the heart of the vibrant spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells. There are restaurants, cafes, shops and beautiful parks in close proximity and the mainline station is within walking distance, as is the historic Pantiles with its elegant colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll. Further shopping opportunities are available at Royal Victoria Place and the award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is under 30 miles distant. If you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns are easily accessible by car or public transport. There are many independent and state schooling options in the area, including those in the much sought-after Kent Grammar system and the mainline station offers a fast and frequent service to Central London.
