A very well presented 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom residence on a most desirable residential road in Tunbridge Wells, renovated and extended by the current owners to provide perfect family accommodation and with the added benefit of access to a private and gated residents' park.
Ascham is a detached family home located on one of Tunbridge Wells' most desirable residential roads. This spacious residence has been significantly improved by the current owners to create a wonderful flow of living accommodation with the added benefit of a secluded rear garden and 2 off-road parking spaces. Offering 4 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, 2 bathrooms, and access to a private, gated residents' park, this is a gem of a property and early viewing is highly recommended.
The entrance hallway is a light and bright space with access to all of the main living areas. Immediately to the left there is a useful recessed shoe storage area and under the stairs, plenty of space for hanging coats. To the right is the family room, with storage cupboard and window to the front and access to the kitchen / diner which runs across the rear of the house. The kitchen is a generous space, with under floor heating, ample room for casual dining and an extensive range of oak wall and base units, topped with granite worktops, and quality integrated appliances. The kitchen also features French doors to the rear garden, and access to the utility room, with sink, space for a washing machine and a WC. The final room on the ground floor is the sitting room, a generous space with two generous areas: seating with an open fireplace and a further flexible area that could be used for home working or more formal dining.
Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, all of which are doubles and have a light and bright aspect thanks to the large picture windows that are found throughout this property. The master bedroom enjoys an en-suite shower room and generous built-in wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom, with bath, double shower cubicle, sink and WC. Access to the boarded loft is via ladder from the landing, there is a light in the loft.
The property in entirely encased within its own plot with access to the rear garden gained from the side. To the front is a block paved driveway providing off-road parking for 2 cars, and an integrated storage area and lawn to the left. A good-sized terrace is at the rear of the property with a further raised decked area, and the remainder of the garden is laid to lawn for easy maintenance. The garden is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, and there is also a shed for storage of garden furniture and implements. This property also benefits from access to the private Molyneux Park, which is specifically reserved for the use of local residents. This gated park organises a range of seasonal events, and can be enjoyed for walking and relaxing throughout the year.
The Molyneux Park area is typified by large period properties, some of which have now been converted into flats, and so a more modern property with the proportions of this house, is unusual for the area. One of the key points that we therefore love is the value for money and opportunity that this house provides to live in such a popular part of the town in a house that is perfectly designed and appointed for the family market. Indeed the current owners moved to the house when their eldest child was just a couple of years old and really thought through how the home should be adapted to meet their growing family needs. The result is a house with an accommodation space and flow that is perfect for the family market: from the dine in kitchen, to the adjoining family room, to the separate sitting room – the perfect adult space to relax at the end of the day, to the 4 good sized bedrooms on the first floor.
The rear garden is safe and secluded, with enough space for children to play and parents to relax, and the storage area at the front means there is plenty of room for storing bikes etc. And the off-road parking provides a safe space for parking and unloading at the start and end of the day. Finally, the contemporary presentation of this house means that the next owners can move in and enjoy their new home from the very start.
Molyneux Park Road is one of Tunbridge Wells' most desirable residential roads on the west side of the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells. It is well placed for the town centre, schools and the mainline station. 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.
