A beautifully presented 4-bedroom house ideally located on charming Norfolk Road in the heart of Tunbridge Wells, just steps away from The Grove, the elegant High Street and Pantiles area.
A gorgeous 4-bedroom residence located in the sought-after Village area of Tunbridge Wells. Arranged over 3 floors, this lovely house is full of natural light, period charm and is stylishly presented throughout. Offering 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a generous reception room and a contemporary kitchen, with the added benefit of a pretty courtyard garden and plenty of storage opportunities, this is a rare opportunity to secure a highly desirable residential property in a much sought-after area.
The original stained glass panelled entrance door opens to the entrance hall and the limed oak flooring which continues through to the lovely reception room on this level. This generous space was converted from two reception spaces and accordingly is a very generous room, filled with light from the bay window to the front and the French door to the rear. The front portion of the room is currently used as a sitting room with shelving fitted to each recess of the fireplace, which has a Stovax wood burner. The bay windows are fitted with stylish wooden shutters and the equally elegant dining room sits in the second portion of the room, with an original fireplace and access to the rear courtyard garden. The contemporary and recently installed German kitchen is at the rear of the property and offers an extensive range of sleek cabinetry, quartz worktops and quality appliances. Under stairs storage and a WC complete the accommodation on this floor.
The rooms are well appointed with generous proportions, helped of course by their fabulous ceiling height. And the storage in the house is also excellent, thanks to the cellar, the eaves storage on the top floor and the cupboards that sit under the stairs. When you combine the quality and finish of this house, with its period charm and first class location, it all makes for the perfect family home.
The entrance door is approached via a couple of steps, with a small area of garden to the right and the original front door with stained glass panelling providing access to the house. The rear courtyard garden is accessed via both the kitchen and the reception room, and is South-East facing, fully enclosed, newly paved area, fitted with Indian sandstone, brick bordered planting beds and plenty of space for al-fresco entertaining.
This house typifies everything that is so wonderful about the village area of Tunbridge Wells. A late Victorian period property, filled with original features such as high ceilings, attractive cornicing and ceiling roses, fireplaces, and sash windows, all combined with a first class contemporary refurbishment. The result is a property that is both elegant and practical, with a real attention to detail throughout. The quality of the finishes is excellent, from the German Schuller kitchen, to the Stovax woodburning stove, from the Indian sandstone courtyard to the limed oak flooring that runs throughout most of the ground floor accommodation.
Norfolk Road is in the desirable Village area of Tunbridge Wells. The High Street and The Pantiles, the elegant Georgian colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll are within comfortable walking distance. A regular farmers' and craft market is held fortnightly on the colonnade and features an excellent range of stalls selling high quality local produce, hot foods, crafts, homewares, and accessories. The mainline station, with its fast and frequent trains to Central London is also only a short walk away. There are excellent schooling options locally, within both the state and independent sectors, including those in the sought-after Kent Grammar system. Tunbridge Wells has a diverse range of restaurants, shops and sporting facilities and the impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is only 45 minutes' drive. If you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns can be reached by train or car in under an hour.
