A very well presented and versatile 5 bedroom detached house with a large secluded garden, located on a very popular residential road in the heart of St Johns.
16 Newlands Road is an excellent example of a detached family home in this ever-popular road, within walking distance to local primary and secondary schools, as well as the town centre. The accommodation is well proportioned and flexible offering either bedrooms downstairs or additional reception rooms. The house is tastefully decorated in neutral tones throughout and in good condition. The garden is very private and benefits from a useful summer house as well as a good size patio and large lawn.
The front door opens onto a hallway from which the ground floor accommodation flows. The large reception room is flooded with light thanks to the large window and sliding doors onto the garden. The room is L shaped, allowing for two distinct seating or dining areas and a feature fireplace adds a focal point to the room. Two of the five bedrooms are located on the ground floor of this property and can be found to the front – the first benefits from a built in cupboard and attractive bay window and the second is also an excellent double with large windows to the front. Whilst these rooms work very well as bedrooms, they could easily be used as additional reception rooms if required. A modern bathroom with large walk in shower is a useful ground floor addition and is accessible from the hall.
We also love the versatility that this house offers, with rooms that can serve as either bedrooms or reception rooms on the ground floor. Newlands Road is highly sought after and extremely popular with families thanks to the proximity of excellent primary schools and secondary schools, including the ever popular grammar schools.
The garden wraps beautifully around the house with a good sized patio for entertaining, a lovely summer house and generous area of lawn. The garden is very private and quiet – a wonderful place to relax.
16 Newlands Road is a much loved home, apparent by its presentation and in the improvements the current owners have made to the house. The presentation is very good throughout and the house is tastefully decorated – a perfect mixture of modern features and contemporary styling. The house is very light and bright thanks to the numerous casement windows, French doors and velux windows and original features such as the picture rails are a nod to the period of the original house and showcases how cleverly the current owners have adapted and extended the house to suit their needs.
The varied amenities of St Johns are within close walking distance and the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells is within walking distance away.
